For their final soirée of the summer before taking a short break in preparation for their 4th birthday in October, Butter Side Up have invited the innovative German DJ, producer, musician and composer Sven Weisemann to headline the nights journey, as always taking place at Wire Club in Leeds.
Butter Side Up has long been a consistent clubbing brand in Leeds when it comes to underground house and techno of the highest quality, with guests of the ilk of Jane Fitz, Optimo, Patrice Scott, Jus-Ed and Rick Wade visiting the city in recent months. Their next instalment is set to go down on June 13th and is looking to be another memorable addition in Butter Side Up’s running of clubbing events.
As an accomplished musician and composer, Sven Weisemann has been the talent behind a large amount of jazz production, using his skills as a player of percussion as well as the electric and acoustic guitars to create a plethora of virtuous material. It is the musical styles that he reveres as a musician that influence Sven’s house and techno production, which has been released on a number of the genre’s most prosperous underground labels such as Mojuba, Leibe*Detail, Telrae and Hypercolour.
Weisemann’s creations have drawn the attention of many reputable selectors around the world, with tracks like ‘Emphasized’, ‘Elution’ and ‘Tikuma’ being played in night clubs across the globe by Rossko, Massimo Di Lena, Matt Long and youANDme to name a just a few. As a DJ, Sven Weisemann has visited many of the world’s leading clubs, with regular stints at infamous nightspots primarily in the UK and Germany such as Tresor, Salon Zur Wilden Renate, Berghain and The Dance Tunnel. Playing a hearty mix of house and techno, infected by a rich complexion of soul, jazz and classical facets, June 13th holds the opportunity to see and hear yet another unique and fathomable DJ, in true Butter Side Up style.
