Buttering Trio is set to release debut full length album ‘Toast’ through Tel Aviv based label Raw Tapes Records.
Hailed “dope as fuck” by Snoop Dogg himself, the beat based electronic trio craft densely layered and sophisticated neo-soul akin to Quadron, Georgia Anne Muldrow or Little Dragon. Their music combines ballads and beats in a manner that redefines trip hop: deep, melancholic tunes accompanied by a groove that plays on the aesthetics of Dilla with a Mediterranean twist.
Group members KerenDun, Rejoicer and Beno Hendler (Balkan Beat Box) met and came together in Berlin, developing their sound during extended experimental jams and all night beat-making sessions. Reconvening in Tel Aviv with new bass player Beno, ‘Toast’ was recorded at their Kicha Recording Studio using a method built around analog gear and Ableton Live.
“The album for us is a kind of schizophrenic new-school romantic child, being a collection of beats produced by the three of us, each bringing her/his own dominant genes”.
