There's a Tsunami comin' at ya!

Last Friday, Selecta M & myself, Scarce One, made a long overdue RIDDIM & GROOVE return to Cologne, where we played our first night at Tsunami Club in the Southern part of the city. Well, it was definitely a great night with a very dancy crowd, great staff and many drinks. We say "thank you, Tsunami" and are looking forward to coming back in May.

The Marburg Doubleheader


On a rare occasion, the upcoming weekend presents a true Marburg doubleheader as both members of the RIDDIM & GROOVE squad prepare for a Saturday night musical takeover. While Selecta M is going to hold things down at Gloria bar by blending reggae, rocksteady and rare groove into a vintage collage of sound, Scarce One rocks the one's and two's at the Back To The Roots Jam that is taking place at Nachtsalon. Together with his IfPR brother Sir Norin Rad, he will drop breaks, beats and block party cuts for both b-boys and MCs as right choice of dance floor grooves to keep the party moving. So no excuses this time...come and get the full package!

The Funky Pungee!


Last Saturday, Scarce One made a long overdue return to Siegen, where he was joined by fellow Köln funk aficionado Webster and Stuttgart 45 slinger Sebastian Heitzmann to play The Funky Pungee! The city's notorious Vortex Club was the place to be that night as the venues's very own grimy character, the outstanding preperation and promotion by great people and good friends, as well as the always hungry and wild crowd added up to an explosive mix of six hours raw funk dance floor galore! Well, it was definitely a night to remember and the floor was filled early and packed until late...thank you Siegen, you never disappoint!

BUTTA 45's Tour 2017 Recap

The 2017 edition of the annual Butta 45's tour with the Philly's own Skeme Richards (Nostalgia King) and the two Riddim & Groove residents, Selecta M (SoundControl) and Scarce One (Intruders) has been filled with great nights, incredible hosts, dancy crowds and likeminded DJ's all across the board. Whether we played at small, intimate venues as the Kurzbar in Mannheim, historic buildings like the fantastic Palace in St. Gallen, Switzerland, or the classy Mojo Jazz Café in Hamburg, every single Butta 45's party has had its own special feel. Yet, all gatherings, including the off-schedule gig at Cologne's top-notch cocktail bar, Spirits, together with Skillkid, or our premiere on the main floor of the legendary KFZ in Marburg, were linked by the very same passion for musical selections of high quality, inspiring DJ sets and lasting memories. Thanks to each and everyone who came out to party, vibe, chat, dance or hang with us and thus made this seventh consecutive tour possible. Extra special shouts go to Herr Wempe and Suro. See you all next year for the soulful eighth edition.

Mannheim and St. Gallen


Today we finally kick off the annual Butta 45's International Germany Tour with the three tough guys Selecta M (SoundControl), Scarce One (IfPR) and the one and only Nostalgia King, Skeme Richards from Philadelphia, PA. Our first stop is the premiere party in the city of Mannheim where we touch down with more bags of 45's than the usual rotation would bring. Tonight, Kurzbar ist the place to be and we are eager to give a city known for its funk, hip hop and dance scene right what people need to get off. Tomorrow, St. Gallen, Switzerland is the destination of the day. We are honored to make our return to this beautiful place with its legendary Soul Gallen party, hosted by Herr Wempe (aka Soulsonic) at the oustanding Palace. A former cinema that reminds you of some Inglorious Bastards setting and thus makes just the perfect fit for a true Butta 45's night.
