Butterscotch Records was an independent record label that brings an ethos of quality, fidelity and artistic focus to record making while simultaneously nurturing a guild-like community of recording artists and collaborators.
Butterscotch Records was founded by producer and recording engineer Allen Farmelo as a platform to feature his work as a record-maker and, now, catalog curator. Butterscotch brings an ethos of quality, fidelity and artistic focus to record making while simultaneously nurturing a guild-like community of recording artists and collaborators.
Farmelo’s predilection for analog recording methods (he went so far as to have a custom made analog console and almost always mixes to analog tape), his high standards for fidelity and his interest in the visual component of records are met with open arms by the artists on the Buttersotch roster. Together, they are creating audiophile-grade records with a distinctive warmth and earthiness; stunning both sonically and visually, especially when rendered in the 12″ vinyl format.
While no longer actively pursued, Butterscotch Records celebrated high fidelity and artistic focus in recordmaking. They specifically underlined on 12″ 33rpm LP as a specific and important art form, and we aim to help the LP format endure the 21st century. Notable artists include Quindar, Graph Rabbit, Carolina Eyck, Blurry.
