Black Butter Records is a formerly independent record label based in London, England that releases various styles of electronic music. It was founded in 2010 by Olly Wood, Henry Village and Joe Gossa, with an investment of £5,000, and was named after a brand of condiments that had the same name. It was intended initially as an outlet for musicians who were signed to their artist management company, Stackhouse Management, and as a reaction against other labels that were "genre specific".
The label releases mostly singles, and has put out the first releases of artists including Clean Bandit, Rudimental, and Jessie Ware. It was awarded 'Best Small Label' at the 2012 Association of Independent Music Awards, and has been described as a "hub" of the British electronic music scene.

And Jessie Ware did the featured vocal on that track, it was a track called Soundclash, and I think it was her first ever credited release.
