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.

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)

1. The New Rotary Connection - I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun
July 12, 2012 08:22 AM PDT
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.BSU 011 - Bruno Schmidt (Louche / AM Collective)
April 04, 2012 02:04 PM PDT
For podcast number 11, we welcome fellow Leeds fledgeling and close friend; Louche resident Bruno Schmidt. In Bruno’s own words, this podcast is “"a selection of old and new tracks that I've picked out as a result of the lovely burst of spring we’ve had, with nothing more than sunshine and good times in mind"
Bruno first became excited by electronic music in early 2007 by Cambridge's longest running house and techno tastemakers, The Priory, who are responsible for throwing the highest quality underground do's for 6 years strong. Their monthly endeavor gave him a small yet accelerated window into the industry and the music from a place where it was otherwise invisible. Simultaneously, he was given remarkable chance to view greats such as Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Luke Slater and Andrew Weatherall, all within the confines of a small, lowlit 200 capacity venue. Although always music lover at heart, it was this time that his tastes began to spawn into what they are today.
Next step was Leeds and the with the combination of an uninspiring degree, a dusted over pair of decks in his student lodgings and an extremely versatile music scene, it wasn't long before he found himself alone for days on end, exploring the four corners of dance music, experimenting with various styles and developing his sound.
Blown away by Performances from Louche favorites Seth Troxler and Miss Fitz opening it's second year, he swiftly made contact, first promoting, before eventually muscling his way onto the roster, becoming Louche's newest and youngest resident. After an internship in the press department at London's infamous Fabric in early 2010, he decided to pursue an interest in the journalistic side of the industry and has since taken the reigns as wordsmith, providing consistent new music media for the website.
Whilst groovy, hypnotic house cuts structure many of Bruno's set, his tastes are deeply eclectic and he continually strives to be the true musical fanatic, exhaustively searching for new flavours and never letting his sound become stagnant. Expect bootlegs, classics, and a fair few of his own edits!BSU 010 - Leftside Wobble (Futureboogie)
March 27, 2012 01:27 AM PDT
For the tenth episode of our growing podcast series we welcome a mix from a Butter Side Up favourite and good friend of ours...Leftside Wobble. As always Jonothan Moore aka Leftside Wobble joins the dots between dub, funk, disco & house with this mix. No specific genres, eras, musical fads or other such nonsense. Just a celebration of grooves that tickle your hips and soothe your soul!
We hope you all enjoy
**LEFTSIDE WOBBLE** (Futureboogie)
Jonothan Moore has been a regular fixture of the underground club scene for over 20 years. Over the years, Leftside Wobble has become established for bis genre hopping sets, mixes and edits. His sets are a joyous journey, which for all their genre hopping content always remain cohesive and true to the spirit of DJ’s such as Ron Trent, François Kevorkian & Danny Krivit.
He is know for his diverse set of artists including edits/remixes of artists such as Gil Scott Heron, Ashford & Simpson, Russ Brown, Esther Philips, The Beatles and Curtis Mayfield. These have achieved over 100,000 downloads and are supported by a diverse set of DJ’s including Greg Wison, Mr Scruff & Rob Da Bank.
This year Leftside Wobble will continue to release regular edits not only through a selection of labels including Disco Deviance, Cosmic Boogie, AutoDiscoteque, Tribute and Kojak Giant Sounds; but also through SoundCloud where he has over 8000 followers from the worldwide DJ community!
His attitudes to both DJing and music production stay true to his original Balearic spirit, so be prepared to be surprised but also be prepared to party!BSU 009 - Fullbarr Showcase
March 14, 2012 03:03 AM PDT
For the 9th Episode of our podcast series we welcome a deep mix from the man behind Fullbar, Arthur Barr. It showcases current and forthcoming releases from the now 2 year running label.
Northern label Fullbarr already has a reputation to belie its young age; one that eschews hype and big names for sonic freshness and musical maturity. “It’s all a bit of fun,” says founder Arthur Barr in a typically self-effacing style. “But it’s also a labour of love. I really want to continue to build on this little collective and want to continue expressing my eclectic tastes.”
So far the likes of Brendon Moeller, fast rising talents Samaan and Youandewan, Classic boss Luke Solomon and German minimalist Losoul have all chipped in to Fullbarr’s small but well formed back catalogue, joining the dots been deepest dub, groove-laden house and moody techno. But don’t just take my word for it: check the tracklists of people like Seth Troxler, Xhin, Paul Woolford, The Revenge and many more high profile spinners, all of whom found space for a Fullbarr track or two in their sets this past year.
From seedy teenage beginnings swigging vodka and providing beats at Ibizan strip joints ,to skilful A&R and respected head of a burgeoning label, Arthur Barr is the man behind all this, and is now curating his first compilation. “I wanted to encapsulate the label in 70 minutes” states the twenty something from Bradford. “I am hoping it may provoke people into further exploring the back catalogue as I will be giving it away on various blogs and in certain clubs and record stores around Europe.”
Hung up on the idea of organic growth rather than social media saturation, Fullbarr puts as much focus on vinyl presses, nice artwork and close connections with artists - on both personal and professional levels - as anything else. Naturally, that means the most important thing is the music, and whether it makes the boss feel something, rather than how many units it may or may not shift.
“The label and I are inspired and influenced by good liquor, sunrises, friends, Soma, Smallville and a whole load of other stuff that doesn’t matter” says the boss, before shining a light on the coming months. “Watch out for releases from Luke Solomon, Losoul, Kalabrese, Samaan, Vince Watson, Immer, San Soda, Hans Berg and Le Jockey, all in the first half of 2012.”
Have a listen and get taken on a journey through the deep hypnotic sound of Fullbarr releases current and upcoming...BSU 008 - Fulbert (Remote / Local Talk)
February 18, 2012 04:36 AM PST
For the 8th Podcast of our growing podcast series we welcome an exclusive mix from Japanese based French producer Timothee Fulbert Victorri aka Fulbert. He is a producer that has come to our attention recently with his distinctive and infectious 90's influenced house sound. He has had a couple of massive releases recently on respected labels Remote Recordings & Swedish based label Local Talk.
He is definitely one to watch for 2012 and beyond, with some more deepness coming your way! Have fun getting locked in to the grooves with this one and we will see you soonBSU 007 - Andy Ash (Foto Records)
January 18, 2012 01:29 AM PST
Welcome to the Butter Side Up Podcast Series, this time we offer you something a little bit different. We know Andy Ash is a proper vinyl collector and has been for years, so we asked Andy to dig deep into his record collection and put together a mix of tunes that he is passionate about and maybe the ones he doesn't get the chance to play out that much. Its an eclectic mix of old disco and funk with a bit of Afro beat thrown in for good measure! We couldn't ask for more from Andy and is perfect for our seventh installment of the Butter Side Up Podcast Series!
**Andy Ash Bio**
Andy grew up collecting records and DJing since the age of fifteen and cut his teeth warming up playing deep house music around the clubs of Cambridge. Since then Andy has moved to Liverpool and widened his DJ spectrum, he now regularly drops vinyl bombs spanning from afro-beat through to deep house in his DJ sets.
Andy Ash has steadily been bulding his sound over the past few years taking in influences ranging from jazz through to techno. He started off with a small digital release on Five20East (The Revenge's original label) and has gone on to release multiple orginal productions, edits and remixes on labels such as On The Prowl, Boogie Originals, FOTO and Kolour Recordings to name a few. Having recently taken on the role of co-runner for Boogie Originals Records expect much more from Andy in the future.BSU 006 - OOFT! ((Foto / Instruments of Rapture)
December 31, 2011 07:53 AM PST
For our sixth podcast of our series, we have a brand spanking new mix from the mighty OOFT!

December 22, 2011 01:15 AM PST
For our fifth podcast of our series we have a Deep house & Techno mix from Best Works boss Andre Lodemann. The mix is an hour of soothing deepness, that will most definitely get you in the mood for Andre's Leeds appearance when he comes to play for us in January and make his city debut.
**INTERVIEW WITH ANDRE LODEMANN**

I am ready for a holiday as I had a lot of work to do both creative and administrative preparing my album "Fragments" on Best Works Records which is to be released in may 2012.

If I am honest I started my career playing trance records in the early 90ies and then moving on to hip hop and finally house...
BSU > What is your most memorable experience of your career so far?
My most memorable moment was 1995 buying records in London. the stores in London had a totally different music selection compared to the stores in Berlin.

Everything that touches me in my life from bad weather to very personal emotions.
BSU > In your mind, is there one album that you feel everyone should listen
Kate Bush "Kick Inside", Radiohead "In Rainbows", Massive Attack "Protection", Talk Talk "Laughing Stock", Joni Mitchel "Both Sides Now",...

I like to keep certain things private

Since receiving the mix we have had it on heavy rotation; it showcases the trademark TDRMC sound and is the perfect mix for a laid back evening...Go and check it out yourself!
**DEAD ROSE MUSIC COMPANY**
Brought together, during a conflict born from two feuding families, by the love of underground music. Seeking the creative release from the mounting pressures of their opposing kin, The Dead Rose Music Company have chosen to keep their identities a secret as protection from reprisals from their families.
Maintaining the secret and the façade of the feud they began to DJ at secret venues, playing for hours to the thronging masses, introducing different genres to one another, testing the water and lowering the barriers and conceptions of genre constraint “who says we can’t play disco with techno? If it’s a great record then we will play it in the context of seeing the dance floor swell to the dark bass and ethereal strings”.BSU 003 - Pete Herbert (Eskimo / Disco Deviance)
November 25, 2011 11:15 AM PST
For our third podcast of our series we have a mix from Disco & House don Pete Herbert! Pete is a proper party starter of a Dj and i'm sure you will all agree with me when you have heard this mix!
Pete is a true pioneer and legend of the electronic music scene; He started off working in notorious London record shops like Daddy Kools and his own Atlas Records while creating a good name for himself as a proper party starting DJ and top producer. A desire to really work the dance floor and a certain nostalgia for the house sounds of the 90s has played a massive part in Pete's creative output as a producer. Pete's DJ sets mix elements of house, Italo and disco into a heady potion of dance floor dynamite that will have you bustin' some serious shapes all night long.BSU 002 - Red Rack'em (Bergerac)

"Brand new podcast series where we hand pick artists carefully and get them to dig deep into their collections and pick songs that they are passionate about.
