For our next installment of the podcast series we introduce one of our favourite artists that we had the pleasure of witnessing on our travels during the summer!
After catching his mesmerizing warm up for Prins Thomas in the Balearic scenery of Hideout festival, it seemed only necessary that we introduce you to The Sonic Emporium. Emerging from a melting pot of all the things that are wonderful when it comes to music and clubbing alike, Simon Stuart’s musical guise delivers a distinctly unique blend of DJ’ing & production into some of the freshest house & techno this fine planet has to offer. All in all, this mix will have you experiencing a musical menagerie like no other. We wish you all happy listening on this one; it is certainly a right little treat!

November 12, 2012 05:02 AM PST
For our 17th episode in the series we bring you a mysterious entity known as Ajukaja. This is the complex alias of Tallinn based multi-talented Raul Saaremets. This relatively new project focuses on underground electronic music, which in the last twenty years has been the centrifuge of his existence. Depending who's listening, Ajukaja's style encapsulates dark, captivating melodies spliced with the kind of quirkiness for which he is starting to become renowned for. As a true technology freak his passion remains to create and modify different instruments and come out with something that can only be described as otherworldly. This mix is nothing short of brilliant, blending extraordinary electronica with the finest deep house cuts of the last few years. A real aural pleasure!
With releases on Red Rack'em's new Smuggles Inn label and a remix for his Hot Coins disco alias the future is looking bright for this cat, we look forward to witnessing what he has to offer!

It gives us great pleasure to introduce a brand new BSU resident to the masses and what better way to do it than with a sublime mixture of the best vinyl cuts! We would like to welcome a DJ of true quality and a serious connoisseur of house and techno music to the Butter Side Up stable…Ciaran Hansen.
Here at BSU HQ we have long been admirers of Ciaran and his diverse approach to electronic music, he is also probably the biggest vinyl junkie that we have ever come into contact with; the man is obsessed..seriously! Gaining respect all over the UK with his unique blend of vintage house and intelligent techno licks, as well as being one of the ever dependable faces behind the Underlying Form collective, Ciaran never fails when it comes to drawing for those quintessential rarities that only the truest music head would ever be able to hunt down. A true purveyor of what we are all about, quality beats, vibes and a never ending desire to throw a proper party!BSU 015 - Groove Chronicles
September 24, 2012 01:33 PM PDT
Next up in our ever growing podcast series we have one of the stalwarts of the UK Garage scene, Noodles AKA Groove Chronicles.
Originally forming in the heyday of the UK Garage scene, Groove Chronicles was an original project formed between Noodles & El-B in 1996. After El-B decided to pursue a solo career in 1999, Noodles took the reigns and continued to stick with his roots and keep the Groove Chronicles sound alive and thriving.
Noodles also runs the fantastic DPR Recordings which quickly established itself as a vanguard of garage music releasing a series of sublime tracks such as the seminal 'Stonecold/Blackpuppet 12". This release is widely regarded to this day as one of the creative watermarks in the UK Garage scene.
The mix blends old UK & US garage with a cheeky mixture of house thrown in for good measure. These were the kind of vibes heard back in the day, with on the fly vinyl mixing and full on vibes through and through. Being one of our favourite artists in the last 15 years of UK music, we are truly honoured to get our hands on this absolute beast of a mix!BSU 014 - Medlar (Wolf Music)
September 11, 2012 02:01 PM PDT
As we excitedly await his debut appearance in Leeds this Friday, Wolf Music's Medlar has very kindly supplied us with our next podcast edition!
This one is a REAL gem, 100% vinyl, 100% vibes!! We guarantee this mix to well and truly shake off those post festival blues and bring you back to normality ready to party all over again this weekend! In true Butter Side Up style..expect the unexpected!

For our 13th Episode of our podcast series we present to you a mix from up and coming Belfast based DJ & producer Cromby. He is only 20 year old and is already steadily cementing a reputation for himself as a consistent purveyor of quality house music. Holding down a residency at Belfast institution, The Stiff Kitten and setting the tone with his warm up slots for international powerhouses such as Kerri Chandler shows that Cromby knows his onions. His productions consist of raw house works that lend a keen nod to evident Chicago sound he loves so much. The acclaim isn't solely coming from the dancefloor however, with BBC Radio One picking up on Chris as one to watch.
Recent releases on Extended Play have been getting major props from the likes of Feel My Bicep, setting the precedent for remixes on Tom Budden's 'Alive' imprint and Assembly Records aswell as more original material in the pipeline too. Alongside his residency Cromby tour dates are flooding in! We think it's safe to say Cromby is a name you are going to be hearing a lot more of.

After a short break from our podcast series we are extremely pleased to welcome our next guest at Wire, Fudge Fingas, in to the fold. Known for his exuberant love of the more eclectic side of the musical scale with over 15 years working in a record store under his belt, this mix perfectly showcases exactly what Fudge Fingas is all about and why we love him so dear.
Starting off by gently meandering around off-kilter broken beat, he quickly switches it up and ever so eloquently whisks you away on a journey through disco rarities, Chicago house and some Detroit techno thrown in for good measure. All in all, you certainly won’t be disappointed with this welcome podcast edition from one of the most quintessential DJ’s around right now. Fudge Fingas, we salute you.
