*Kap10Kurt Live!
Plantmusic/ kap10kurt.com
New York, NY
-Somewhere in the urban chaos of the East Village, New York City's hipster-area, lives Kap10kurt, programmer and musician. Originally from switzerland, he has been making music with a 4-Track cassette recorder and an Atari computer for many years before ending up with a proper studio set-up.
Kap10kurt's music spans a number of genres including electro, gameBoy noise, 80's new wave and 70's synthesizer funk. Conceptualizing and building his trademark sound, the vintage synthesizer collector focuses on extremely rhythmic and muscular basslines and strong drumbeats that fly straight into your ears like blazing starfighters.
More than apparent in many of the Kaptain's recordings is his immense attention to detail and sound, which brought him work as a programmer and engineer for major stars like Moby, Depeche Mode singer Dave Gahan and Cindy Lauper as well as remixes for the Bravery, Dave Gahan, Ocelot, Grafton Primary and BluemanGroup.
His debut release was on techno dj John Selway's label MemoryBoy. The single "Die Sleeping", featuring Columbia recording artist Nellie McKay, was part of the critically acclaimed compilation series "The Sound Of Young New York" and enjoyed spins all over the world.
More recently the Kap10Kurt dancefloor destroyer 'Dangerseekers' has been included on the Kitsune Udon complilation in japan. 'Dangerseekers' also reached #1 for several weeks on the Micromusic download chart and was released on November 5 2007 on Plantmusic as a 12' picture disc featuring remixes by Shinichi Osawa, Tepr and Rolf Honey (Rolf Z & Yuksek) which gets great reviews and was featured in the weekly Top10 of Xlr8r and receives Blog-love from Fluokids and Bigstereo among many others.
In October 2007, Dave Gahan released his 'Hourglass' Album. The Single and 12' Releases will features 3 violent and sweaty remixes by Kap10kurt aka k10k alongside BookaShade and Digitalism. The kap10 also performed live with Monsieur Gahan on his recent tv and promo concerts. He is currently working on Tracks for the upcoming Depeche Mode album to be released in December 08.
Up next is the release of "Mission Complete" on 12" Vinyl with remixes By Moulinex, Tepr (Yelle), Ocelot, Symbol One and more. Kap10kurt has been bringing his latest party-rocking stompers to the dancefloors all over the Japan, US and Europe. The Live show is carefully crafted for optimum listening and viewing pleasure.
*Josh the Funky 1
Funktion Recording
Chicago, IL
-Hailing from Chicago, USA (the birthplace of House Music) Josh The Funky 1 wears the hat of DJ, producer, radio/podcast host and founder of the label Funktion Recordings. Having firmly etched his way into the fabric of Dance music culture and recently being hailed as “one to watch” in Mixmag magazine (UK), the world has begun taking notice of one of North Americas finest exports.
In a world where everyone wants to be a DJ, he has carved his niche by combining superb showmanship with turntabilist styled DJ skills. “For me Deejaying is about being an entertainer and a music selector, I never have to pretend like I’m feeling the music, it shows naturally and its infectious to others in the crowd.” A DJ now for over a decade, his travels across the world have developed his unique musical sense, easily genre hopping between styles, it’s not surprising to hear a blend of Big-room house, uplifting vocals, tech, progressive, tribal and funky jacking beats all side by side. “I look at my sets like cooking , you need different ingredients and spices together or it's a bland meal”
While some DJ’s are content simply playing record to record "The Funky 1" has become synonymous with using scratching, loops, acapellas, and effects, while playing on three CDJ decks, allowing for an unparalleled level of creativity as he has since become a D.M.C. Midwest Finalist and a winner of Miami’s W.M.C.- D.J. Spin-Off.
As is the natural progression for DJ’s to start producing their own music, it was while still a teenager that Josh found himself releasing his first original productions on Chicago based label, International House Records (I.H.R.). Owned by DJ Bad Boy Bill, he quickly snapped up his first single, and it was soon there after that Josh was personally enlisted to be a studio engineer and co-producer on his “Bangin the Box" mix compilation series.
With a wealth of experience under his belt already at an early age, it was apparent that having your own label was essential in creating a brand and identity. Founded and birthed in 2001, Funktion Recordings became a record label for both international artists as well as his own original material. Looking to expand the labels capacity he began a partnership with long time friend and associate, Gus Calderone in 2005. Both passionate and sharing the same vision, they have worked tirelessly at bringing the U.S. based label to the forefront of the International Dance Music world. “ The record label has become so important to me in this digital era where there is just to much music out there for DJ’s to sort through, a trusted brand like ours is vital as a point of reference when searching for new music.” With a growing catalogue from a who’s who of producers including David Tort, Ian Carey, Franky Rizardo, Granite & Phunk, the label is firmly placed at the top of DJ’s go-to list. Of course the label has also been a platform for Josh’s own releases while letting him lend a hand remixing the likes of Kurd Maverick, Chriss Ortega, Harrison Crump, and Erick Decks.
Now in 2009, he plans to further increase his output of original material/remixes along with several collaborations in the works. With Mixmag magazine (UK) touting him in the press and having already toured through the UK, Germany, North America, what can we can expect next from Josh The Funky 1 ? “My goal is simple ......to reach as many people as possible!”
