“The Buttering Trio knows how to keep things fresh, exciting and leftfield without turning their heads into eclecticism just for the reason of being eclectic, different and as far out as possible.” – nitestylez.de “Their debut album ‘Toast’… firmly embraces the spirit of trip-hop, taking it’s lead from Portishead and smearing it with all sorts of goodies. There’s so much to like here - the Aphex squelches and helium chants of ‘Falafel’, the warm farfisa swirls and louche beats of ‘Tired Love’, the different languages and found sounds, the dubstep touches and infectious grooves – you really won’t know where to begin.” – Electronic Sound Magazine
Buttering Trio are three gentle souls from Tel Aviv. Using heavy beats, fat bass lines and sweet yet poignant lyrics, the trio creates densely layered and ingenious Nu Soul, which is no more than millions of miles away from the creation of other artists of this genre. What started out as studio jams in a smoky basement in Berlin evolved into a world-wide-touring three headed music-making love monster. Their live show is a non-stop experience, one psychedelic groovy journey through the mixture of their subconscious minds. The trio's combination of loop-based beats with live instruments (saxophone, vocals, synths and bass) creates a natural and refreshing flow between atmospheric sounds, jazz explorations, and broken rhythms. Keren, the singer and saxophonist of the band, talking about their live show, “It starts as something and through the experiences we have during the show but ends as something else… Where we live we get a lot of influences from everywhere, like in ‘Ganja Man’, you hear the Indian influence, then there’s jazz, reggae, hip-hop, rock, Egyptian sound, classical…” Their psychedelic voyage has appeared in several places around the globe through massive venues, such as Jazz Café in Camden, Global Copenhagen, and underground clubs such as Bi Nuu in Berlin, Loftas in Lithuania and big festivals like Fusion Festival and Garbicz Festival.
