Button is Mars Giolas. Button combines electronic avant-garde sounds with danceable beats into an energetic, live show. Button, a whole lot of fun made by one!


Button (Mars Giolas) is from Chicago, IL. He's always loved music and movies. He began studying guitar at a young age at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. A fan of all things Electronica, he began composing his own electronic music at the age of 14 on a Macbook. He still uses the same Macbook with Reason and Ableton Live to play live shows at locations in Chicago including the Beat Kitchen, the Heartland Cafe and Old Town School of Folk Music.

Influences: Girl Talk, Dan Deacon, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Boards of Canada, Ratatat.

Button is cinematic, interesting, fun, danceable, and, above all, unique.
