The annual carnival season is gathering way and next week it is time for the start of this year's street festivities. So, we thought that there is acutally no better date to make an alternative offer to all the people who, on the one hand like the colorful costumes and joyful vibe the city is filled with during those days, but, on the other hand, also want to listen to some solid soulful grooves to shake their hips. Here we go: next Friday, February 24th, Selecta M and Scarce One are part of an all star line-up of some of Köln's finest record collectors and DJ's that is going to take you to the Mardi Gras! The Acephale bar is the place to be as we combine that southern seasoning with "Kölsche Frohsinn" and drop only heavy dancefloor grooves from genres like Funk, Soul, Reggae, Rap, Latin, Afro and Boogie for you. Make sure not to miss the action as there is a welcome shot for everybody!

Butta 45's Tour Diary (Part 4)

After four straight weekends of soul traveling, the 2016 Butta 45's Germany and Switzerland tour has come to an end. But instead of fading out calmly and quietly we had another two great parties and great cities. While in Marburg, Germany, it was time to celebrate the opening of the club room at the brand new KFZ, St. Gallen, Switzerland hosted us in a hundred-years old cinema, the Palace. Though the two venues could probably not have been more different regarding their age, both cities had a lot of culture, good food and welcoming atmosphere. As we kept riding the rhythms on this tour, party people went directly on the dance floor and shook their hips until 4 am in the morning. This might have been one reason why the pictures we took cannot actually capture what was really going on. We say a special thanks to Herr Wempe aka Soulsonic who really has a special thing going down there in the Eastern part of Switzerland! Check the pics and make sure to give the live recording a listen!

See you next year on the Butta 45's 2017 tour!
