& The Butter Side Up Residents:
£4 Early Birds
Seasons Greetings to you all from Butter Side Up! It’s that most wonderful time of the year when the magical becomes fantastical and the parties blossom into a stupendous celebration of all things Christmas! We love it. To help us deck the halls with grooves and late night jams we have an English gentleman of the highest order, a driving force behind the resurgence of house and disco music in the last 10 years on our humble shores…Toby Tobias.
Long time member of the massively respected Rekids family, Toby has been playing his trade with huge success. 2008 saw Toby release his critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Space Shuffle’ on Radioslave’s Rekids imprint which saw his international status go from strength to strength, seeing him also release on Quintessentials as well as setting up his own baby, Late Night Audio. Toby has consistently provided us with sublime contemporary house gems and edits drenched in
disco funk; a true pioneer of modern dance music!
As a DJ Toby has been collecting vinyl since the golden days of the b-boy in the 80’s, continuing his obsession right through to the present day. A hypnotic blend of disco edits, funk and house is the order of the day! I think you will all agree that Christmas can’t come quick enough this year! Huzzah!

"“One of the islands (Ibiza) most talented residents” Resident Advisor
As much a part of Ibiza as an overpriced Mojito, Ian Blevins is hastily becoming one of the islands defining features. Thanks to a weekly residency at arguably the greatest, and by far the most globally well-known night on the island, We Love… at Space, his profile gains pace with every set he unleashes.
Years of passionately listening to and searching for music, both new and old, has seen Ian’s style mature and has helped cultivate a sound that is now synonymous with his name. Extensive tours in Asia and Australia have peppered recent years, conquering countless venues along the way, including the world-renowned Playground Festival in Sydney, his run as the warm up DJ for Crazy Penis’ on their Australian tour and jawdropping events throughout Thailand and Singapore. Over in Europe, the winters have seen Ian play all over the UK and Germany, from the coolest, most underground venues to the likes of award winning super-clubs Digital and Ministry of Sound.
An already busy 2012 has already seen Ian plays gigs in Brazil with Germany, Croatia and Ibiza all to come. All that, on top of holding more ‘That Old Chestnut’ parties in the UK and records being released on Audio Parralax , Colour Series, Flight Recorder, Disco Bloodbath and Magic Wand respectively, Ian Blevins defines the term ‘the one to watch’, this season and beyond.

The boys, hailing from the town that invented the steam train 'Darlington' divide their time between the studio and the decks as co-host of regular and highly acclaimed underground night That Old Chestnut. They have also gained a canny little following as co-resident's at Northern night and electronic beacon Jaunt> whilst also playing guest spots and supporting some of the biggest names across the UK and further a field including We Love & Back to Basics.
The buzz around Sixth Finger's productions saw their remix of Al Gobi - 'Change Acid' rank highly on the Juno Download chart, keep your ears to the ground for new releases, watch this space.......
