At home and on the road

After some busy weekends traveling from Siegen to Hamburg and Dortmund with a homestand in Cologne in between, it is time for a little recap providing some impressions of what has been going on. The first stop on the map was Siegen, where the Funky Pungee party at Vortex Club was a huge success. The vibe was great a usual and Webster, who joined Scarce in the rotation behind the wheels, kept the musical focus of the night right on point: straight funk! Next up was a true RIDDIM & GROOVE trip to beautiful Hamburg, where Scarce and M had the pleasure of concluding this year's Reeperbahnfestival, Europe's biggest club festival, at Mojo Jazz Café. As you know, Mojo and its great staff never disappoints! Finally, after dropping some worldwide grooves at Cologne's finest GRID BAR, Scarce teamed up with Eugene Rockwell to provide the musical foundation for the bboys and bgirls at Stand Up To Get Down II in Dortmund. Well, from the very first minute of the cyphers until the winner was announced, it was just breaks and beats galore.

Funkee Pungee Vol. 1

Last year, when Mario and Andi, some old friends from Siegen, Germany, approached Scarce One with the idea of throwing another funk and soul party in their town, he immediately replied "yeah, definitely, I'm down. Siegen funk parties have alsways been outstanding, so let's do it!". Out of this initial conversation the FUNKY PUNGEE was born. After its more than successfull pre-release featuring Scarce, Webster and Sebastian Heitzmann (Get Down!/Schlampazius, Stuttgart) it is now time for the official volume 1. This time, the legendary Florian Keller (Funk Related, München) joins the rotation, making sure that deep grooves, raw funk and gritty soul keeps turning all night long. See you all tomorrow at Vortex, Siegen! More information can be retrieved online.

Beautiful Switzerland

Traveling to Switzerland is always something special and this time at Rapattack Festival 2018 it was no different. Everything fell into place, from the beautiful weather to meeting friends, hanging out and enjoying the amazing scenery. Thanks to Soap for going on this road trip with me and killing it in the circles and big thanks to my No Half Stepping fam for again being such wonderful hosts. It is always a pleasure!
