Buttering Trio are three gentle souls from Tel Aviv trying to bring the funk to the desert. Using heavy beats, fat bass lines and sweet yet poignant lyrics, they try to bring some peace in a troubled region. What started out as studio jams in a smoky basement in Berlin evolved into a world-wide-touring three headed music-making love monster.
Rejoicer, Beno and KerenDun are all musicians and producers, a fact that is felt in their uncompromising sound. 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.
Their psychedelic voyage, (also known as the live show) has appeared in several places around the globe through massive venues (Jazz Café in Camden, Global Copenhagen), underground clubs
(Bi Nuu in Berlin, Loftas in Lithuania) and big festivals (Fusion Festival, Garbicz Festival, Strawberry Festival).
“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.” -

"This formation must be a definitive even live with probably Pink Floyd- like projections , 9 out of 10 points."
"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."
