Mix Series Spotlight: Butter Sessions’ BSR Mix
There aren’t many brands in Australian underground dance music as well established, and well respected as Butter Sessions. With ten years of record releasing and party throwing, the record label has built a reputation on family and community values, all while progressing the sound of Australian electronica. Butter Sessions dominates a corner of the Australian dance music scene, their distinct sonic ethos has propelled them to the top of the pecking order of record labels, not just by their in house, Sleep D releases, but with the network and family of artists they’ve begun to work with. Most recently they’ve released their three party vinyl, ’10 Years Of Butter Sessions’ compilation series, announced a full length LP from minimal chug master Guy Contact, as well as a stunning, banging EP from techno band Polito.
Like so many of the labels we’ve spotlighted in this series, it’s no surprise alongside their cult followed sound, their excellent record label releases and iconic Naarm parties, that the crew also runs an incredible mix series. The mix series is one of the country’s most diverse in terms of sound and identity, featuring a range of artists from all across the world and country. There’s no market or electronic music fan left untapped, curating a tastemaker mix series that ticks all the right boxes. Alongside each mix, the duo host a Q&A on their gorge website, which you can read them all HERE.
Recently, Eora’s Cousin of Moonshoe Records and Freda and Jackson fame took over the Butter Sessions waves, to provide an hour of power full of bass heavy and broken rhythm house vibes. Another highlight includes a guest mix from the one and only DJ PGZ, where the emerging DJ, youth project worker and radio presenter kills it in his one hour mix full of burners ranging from house, techno, bass, hip hop and more.
