Vera [Perlon I Hello?Repeat
Jamma & Max [Bread & Butter]

——————————————
Constantly evolving and picking up impulses, she follows her intuition rather then trendsand she keeps surprising with unexpected sets, that have a humble, female touch.

Her roots reach back to the golden age of techno and house- the early 90’s. Over a decade of experience behind the decks turned her into a routined DJ, that is booked in numerous places all over the world. At the same time though, she’s still a insiders’ tip to many.

Since 2004 she’s a resident DJ at the Robert Johnson Club in Offenbach. As a producer Vera released music on respected labels such as Perlon, Oslo, Hello?Repeat & HalfBaked – solo works as well as colaborations with Ricardo Villalobos, Federico Molinari and with Maayan Nidam, under the moniker Mara Trax. Since 2011 Vera lives and works in Berlin, where she’s hosting regular nights at her favorite Berlin music place, Club der Visionäre.

Bread & Butter with Marco Shuttle & Tom Demac


Bread & Butter Sep 15 web

We kick off our 5th season at Basing House with 2 talented guests:

Marco Shuttle

Operating in the abstract regions of techno and coming from a visual (fashion) background, Marco Shuttle has carved out his own little niche in recent years. Releasing on outlets such as Time To Express, The Bunker and Clone, Marco Shuttle’s journeying techno sound is very detailed and organic, and as such has turned the heads of those in the know. As a DJ he is just as considered, never doing anything just because, but instead focussing on form and function in equal measure. Marco Shuttle, then, as boss of his own Eerie label, makes and mixes together music that is exactly that.

Tom Demac

There’s no second guessing Tom Demac. From his earliest output in the fertile techno scene of his native North Wales to his most recent world-beating 12”s, he has never shied away from trying something new. Independent of the platforms his music is released on, Tom’s set has imprinted his name and sound on the minds of many. From DC10 to Fabric & Panoramabar, Tom’s sets have always kept the energy high and dynamic, a constant tribute to the techno roots that set him on his way.

Line-up:

We start our 4th season at Basing House in style bringing Dial / Smallville label boss Lawrence from Hamburg – Germany.

Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence / Sten launched the Dial label in 2000 together with Carsten Jost.
With his Labelmates Pantha Du Prince, Efdemin, John Roberts it is not only the music they spread, residencies in Berlin’s Panorama Bar or Ego Club Hamburg and the House Music sublabel Laid Records make the Dial imperium go round.

His deep love to house and techno music made him launching a record store in Hamburg St. Pauli called “Smallville” and a second label under the same name.
It is no secret how much the Dial and Laid label co-founder loves the classic emanations House and Techno, and the fact that his track “Étoile du Midi” was featured on Sven Väth’s prestigeous “The Sound Of The Thirteenth Season” proves that this love is highly recognized in the scene.

Bread & Butter talk with Lawrence


lavrence

Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence aka Sten launched the Dial label in 2000 together with his friend Carsten Jost. With releases on Ghostly International, Kompakt, Mule Electronics, Pampa,  his deep and functional Detroit-ish technosoul hit the DJs choice from the first 12″ to his Film & Windows album in 2014. His deep love to house and techno music made him launch the superb Smallville record store in Hamburg’s St. Pauli district. It is no secret how much the Dial label co-founder loves the classic emanations of the Motor City, always adding his own melancholic twist to Detroit’s legacy. Bread & Butter got in touch with Lawrence to talk about Dial, Hamburg, forthcoming projects and his all-time classic top 5 chart.

How’s your year been so far, what have been the highlights?

L: 2014 was an intense year.  My two personal highlights regarding music production have been finishing the debut album of our new band Sky Walking (with Christian Naujoks and Richard Schulenburg) and a full length Lawrence album, ambient works, in cooperation with my friends Stefan Marx and Toshiya Kawasaki.

Talking about your background, What kind of music were you listening when you were young and when you were first introduced to electronic music?

L: As a teenager in the 80ies i listened to mainstream radio music which back then included The Smiths, Depeche Mode, the Cure, Talk Talk, Kraftwerk. In 1984 Breakdance introduced me to the combination of music and dancing for the first time. I was a bad breakdancer though :). The starting point regarding House Music and Techno was the Front Club Hamburg in 1988

How would you say your tastes have evolved since the start of your own imprint Dial? Have there been any specific big shifts?

L: Eventually my taste of House Music shifts the least- “Can You Feel It” by Fingers Inc. among a few other tracks marks a standard already in ’86. The challenge is more to create that magic feeling over and over again. It’s still single tracks and moments in music that feel more like a change rather than trends or general taste.



Some of your tracks are very reflective and almost experimental with a distinctive ambient-hypnotic sound. Where does that come from?

L: Uncountable musicians influenced my work. Probably most of them prefer seeking something interesting and new rather than the authentic and real.

You’ve proved to be a very proactive person managing labels and a record shop in your city, producing music and ultimately running an art gallery in Berlin. What is the secret to be successful in each of these different projects?

L: I’d love to show you the key to success but i really don’t know how this all happened, it’s a true miracle and sometimes pure craziness. My colleagues Bianca, David and me seem to be attracted to the assumed unrealizable, if it just feels right and essential.

I’ve read that your “Mathew” gallery in Charlottenburg (Berlin) will also open soon in New York..are there any particular exhibitions worth to check?

L: Each and every show is worth to check! And I do not only say this only as a gallerist, i deeply mean it in regards of the the artists and their works.

I’ve always been attracted by the artwork of each Dial, Smalville release..Do you believe these unique little pieces of art donate an extra “value” to each release?

L: The visual world of music is not exactly filled with beauty. Looking at most of the artworks, websites, download portals… it is rather depressing. Our mission was always to create elegance and beauty. To display art on a record indeed is a nice gift.

What’s happening in your city – Hamburg?

L: Hamburg is a small city, slow but intense, everything here seems to have a certain rhythm. With the tiny Golden Pudel Club you’ll find one of the most ambitious places ever. The space is open seven days a week and offers all kinds of extreme music from Black Metal to Contemporary Classic. The community is politically engaged and welcomes artists and musicians from all over the world. Then you have institutions like Rote Flora, the infamous Golem Bar, Park Fiction, the Smallville record shop and many others- quite an extraordinary scene.

Hamburg

You’ve been around a long time, what are the biggest changes you have seen? Also where do you think the ‘industry’ is at right now?

L: The industrial part of creating and releasing club music was never that interesting- what counts is the people taking care of it, the music itself, the parties and music lovers. And these are still as crazy and hot as in the beginning, i don’t feel a massive change.

What can we expect from Lawrence and the Dial, Laid, and Smallville families in the near future?

L: A lot of exciting projects are waiting to be released in the near future: the debut of Sky Walking in October, Ambient works by Lawrence on Mule Musiq in November and a Lawrence 12inch to come soon on Smallville to be followed by a Smallpeople single. After Efdemin Remixes Pt2 and another Roman Flügel EP, Dial is going to release the album by Dj Richard in early 2015.

Top 5 all-time classic:

Convextion – Astrum



Theo Parrish – Lake Shore Drive



Pépe Bradock – Deep Burnt



Timeline – Conscious Dream EP



Maurizio – Domina (C. Craig’s Mind Mix)



Bread & Butter with Andre Galluzzi


Galluzzi 3

Bread & Butter welcome back Panorama Bar resident and Cocoon favourite, Andre Galluzzi after his great set last January.

The Frankfurt born selector has lent his sound to some of the most prestigious institutions of house and techno including residencies at archetype German clubs, Tresor and Ostgut (the original name given to techno’s palace Berghain, in 1996).

Since then he has gone on to become resident at the world famous Berghain/Panorama Bar, a club in which he is famous for intoxicating 10 hour sets.

Andre has also had his hand in many solo and collaborative projects beyond the booth. He released the, now famously received, mix compilation, Andre Galluzzi: Im Garten. More collaborations came later with Guido Schneider– the two of them provided seminal records on labels like Ostgut Ton, Cadenza, Cocoon and and Highgrade. And most recently his partnership with Dana Ruh has brought us ARAS Recordings– where Andre handles the daily A&R responsibilities.

Bread & Butter Warehouse Series with Kenny Larkin & Sascha Dive


BB Larkin

Bread & Butter present a limited series of warehouse events for 2014.
For this appointment we welcome Kenny Larkin, one of the world’s premiere leaders of Detroit techno plus Cocoon favourite Sascha Dive and Blind Minded Live.

Limited concession list: breadandbutterlondon@gmail.com

[Kenny Larkin]

To most electronic music aficionados, Detroit native Kenny Larkin is a man who needs no introduction. His impressive 20-year history of creating arguably some of the most timeless, soulful techno ever created, is unquestionable. But, to the newer generation of club-goers, who aren’t aware of his contributions, 2012 serves as the year to re-establish his position as one of the most valuable forces in dance music today.
Since the beginning of his career, Larkin’s profile was never considered massive, nor did he ever serve as the “face of techno.” Yet, the respect and admiration he garners from his fans, electronic musicians, and journalists globally leave little doubt as to his relevance, and influence in a genre that sometimes can be described as lacking in feeling, warmth and musicality.
It is that musicality that allowed him to give us an unforgettable collection of original material and remixes, such as the amazingly groovy Inner City “Share My Life.” Many consider this rework one of the best Inner City remixes ever done or the equally stunning remix done for Ben Klock’s “OK,”

[Sascha Dive]

This young man from Frankfurt and his label Deep Vibes Recordings is among the most promising new producers and companies in Germany at the moment who, despite clear references to early U.S.-American sounds, all have found their very own rhythm and style by now.
Sascha Dive does not hesitate to combine new and old, America and Europe, light grooves and finest melodies. He does not care whether a record is 10 years or 10 days old. What counts is its aesthetics and if the results fits in his sophisticated dramaturgy and subtlety of his set. Dive’s DJ sets are characterized by his knowledge of Afro-American dance music he skilfully translates into the empiricism of the European club scene and sociology that is becoming more and more expressive….

He runs his label Deep Vibes Recordings all by himself and in a very characteristic style when it comes to artwork, A&R, remixes and productions. Moreover, he can look back on a number of extremely successful remixes and tracks released on labels such as Raum…musik and Drumpoet Community. Dive soon became famous for his first-class, deep House sounds with references to Scott Ferugson or master Tony Rodriguez. The reaction was enormous and rather unusual for this almost nihilist and cynical daily business and its innumerable records and releases.

[AFTER PARTY with JADED] @ Corsica Studios 6am-3pm.

At 6am we’ll head over to Corsica Studios for our official afterhours party.
Jamma and Max will take over the room 2 controls.
Special discount wristbands for the afters will be handed out on the dance floor.

Bread & Butter talk with Ripperton


Ahead of his appearance at Bread & Butter this weekend, we had a chance to catch up with Ripperton to chat about how he originally got involved in the scene, his label, highlights for the year and future projects.
Since the beginning of his career, Ripperton has let loose with a prolific string of consistently high-quality releases and remixes, making his reputation as a purveyor of tasteful house, techno, and minimal undoubtedly deserved…

How’s your year been so far, what have been the highlights?

R: This year was great so far thank you!
Lot of traveling and studio sessions for remixes and new materials coming soon.
The highlights so far were the huge reception of my remix for my good friend Baikal on his label Maeve, I didn’t expected it to be honest.
In top of that playing so many top clubs and festival in my home country was something that was absolutely stunning as well.

When you were first introduced to electronic music?

R: By the radioshow every Friday/Saturday night on the national Swiss Radio Couleurs 3.
The residents were Tony Humphries, Mandrax, Djamin to name a few. Great way to enter the deep side of that new thing that was called house music.

You have always kept a distinct sound that manages to stay melodic, yet still driving. Were there any influences or aims that led you to this sound

R: Yes, you are right. It’s a priority for me to sound and respect the house music from his pure form. Which is connected to Chicago, Detroit and New Jersey sound. Vocals, strong melodies and hard work on the edit are my golden rules.

What drives your creativity mostly; what gets you up and writing new music day after day?

R: Good question, I do music as i breath and it’s the only thing i can do not too bad i think.
When I’m tired of producing I do a break and focus my interest on other things like books movies, painting etc… I simply need art forms around me to feel good.

rippertonYou started your Tamed Musiq in 2012. Why and what is the music background behind your label?

R: I wanted to restart a fresh things for my own productions only. But as I’m a dj and I’m luckily enough to get some great friends that make astonishing music and kind enough to send them to me, I started to release them on Xtra-Tamed. I just want to release the best of them, the ones i think that deserve it. There’s way too much “okay” productions right now but “okay” is not “okay” anymore.. we all want more, I mean more personal records less functional.


Your relatively new project “Headless Ghost” saw releases on Clone Royal Oak & Tamed Musiq. Why change monikers? What was the thinking behind that?

R: Headless ghost came first on STHLM audio in 2009, I had that nice bunch of tracks sleeping in my computer and one night Agnès came by and was drunk enough to sign them all. They were more housey and raw than what I did with Ripperton so the idea of that moniker came by. The house was almost gone at this “minimal” rise period, so yeah ghost and headless because they came straight from the heart and not from the mind.

Basing House, at the moment, is probably the best small underground venue in London. How do you feel performing to an intimate crowd?

R: My first show there last year was outstanding, I love small venues. What is a party? It’s just you, me and a good sound system. who care about the numbers. I guess that’s all I need to be a happy dj.
.

Who are you on the day to day outside of music? What else do you like doing?

R: I have a family, two young kids, so it takes almost all my time outside of the studio, I watch a lot of series as well, otherwise some good dinner with friends!

What else can we expect from Ripperton in the near future?

R: I have just signed a new song called “Unfold” on Innervisions that should drop end of June, a remix for Noir & Haze on Noir music, a new collaboration with Deetron as Roots Panorama on his new label Character coming soon and a track called “Searchin 4 you” for the Systematic 10 years anniversary compilation, that will feature exclusively on the new Deetron’s Fabric mix as well.

Catch Ripperton on Saturday 31st of May at Bread & Butter [Basing House-London]
