UV Funk 027: Permanent Vacation Special
You already checked our Uncanny Vacation record we put together with Munichs Permanent Vacation. For some deeper information and more great music Philipp had co-labelhead Benjamin Fröhlich on the line for a little interview about the past and future plans of Permanent Vacation. For those who cannot speak German there the trippy mix that Benji...
UV Funk 026: DAVE Special
Big things will happen in good ol’ Dresden. DAVE stands for Dresden Audio Visual Experience and it is all about the many facets of club culture. There will be workshops, movie- and visuals-action, of course wild parties, concerts at beautiful spots and interesting panels with artists like Portable, Addison Groove, Ebo Taylor, Massimiliano Pagliara or...
UV Funk 025: West & East Africa 1927-2013
This time Albrecht takes us on a journey from West to East Africa and back in the times between 1927 and 2013. Starting with early recordings from 1927 made in London of West African musicians we explore traditional folk music. Going further with recordings from Kenya & Uganda we can hear the developing of recording...
UV Funk 024: Balearica Special
Summer ist over, winter is coming. Actually Philipp mixed the last UV Funk show as a teaser for our sunny Balearic party in Dresden. But now it turns out that the mix works perfectly as a soundtrack for the transition from the hot season into the cold one. It starts off with summery Afro and...
UV Funk 023: Soft Rock Special Part II
It’s summer in the western hemisphere. And everyone is supposed to feel not too bad. Unfortunately we couldn’t get that boat trip ready. But as compensation Gunnar and Philipp decided to do another Soft Rock Special. Since the first edition has been aired over two years ago it was about time. So, relax, grab a...
UV Funk 022: Max Graef & Nano Nansen / Nixon & Stogram
When Max Graef and Nano Nansen played our Uncanny Valley Party last May we did a little pre-party with Max and Nano mixing it up at our beloved Fat Fenders. We streamed live from the record store to the radio station. Also, Philipp took the opportunity to ask some questions. This came about thanks to...
UV Funk 021: Afrobeat & Afrofunk & Afrodisco
Fortunately it isn’t so difficult these days to explore some rare music from Africa. Just have a look at those fine reissues and compilations which showcase a wide range of that particular funky music that only can originate from the black continent. Just check out our Reissue Label Special from 2011 to get the idea. For this...
UV Funk 020: Tempo 80 Special
When Philipp played on the infamous Tempo 80 party in Dresden earlier this year he selected way too many records to play only for one night. It would have been a pity to just put them back into the shelf niches. So he decided to mix some of them up for the next UV Funk...
UV Funk 019: Beyond Plastic Special
It’s no secret that we love vinyl here at Uncanny Valley. So we didn’t have to think long when Alex Ketzer asked the label to take part in his Beyond Plastic project, mixtape in book format about artists and vinyl labels that press music on “black gold”. And there will be a CD with music from these...
UV Funk 018: Best Of 2013
One more year, lots of new favourites. Once again UV Funk host Philipp asked a lot of Dresden-based and mostly UV-related DJs and artists to comment on their biggest tune of the year.  As in recent years the show gathers a fine collection of songs from Synth Wave via House through to Ambient. UV Funk...
UV Funk 017: New Zealand Special with Gunnar
Music from New Zealand sounds like Dub and Reggae? Well, that’s not totally wrong. At least there are a lot of bands on the Kiwi Islands dropping laid back vibes und doing it the smooth way. But there was also a huge Indie and Rock scene with bands like Split Enz, The Chills and the...
UV Funk 016: The Big Men Restless (Lunatic / Blackred)
There is so much good music in Leipzig nowadays. Two of those interesting label projects are Lunatic and Blackred, both researching the fields in between Science Fiction and Bass. Lunatic strikes attention more on the Techno side of things, while the records on Blackred are just right for lovers of dark Electro. But in the...
UV Funk 015: Movie Special
No doubt – there has been a strong connection between movies and the world of electronic or rhythm based music. Just think of John Carpenter or Goblin‘s work with Dario Argento. Not to mention those musicians who tend to write music for movies just for the fun of it. Fot the UV Funk show in June,...
UV Funk 014: Conny Plank Special with Roedelius und esclé
For those of you who don’t know: Conny Plank was a German record producer, musician, audio engineerer and secret member of many of those so-called Krautrock Bands until he died way too early in 1987. One of his early friends and collaborators was Hans-Joachim Roedelius, long-time member of Cluster and Harmonia and now – even...
UV Funk 013: Exotica Special with Conrad Kaden
This show is all about music that sound somehow exotic to people from Middle-Europe. For UV Funk, Conrad Kaden selected his favourite Exotica tracks from countries like Trinidad, South Africa, Mali, Brazil, Poland, Iran, Turkey, India, Indonesia and Bavaria ;-). Of course he couldn’t resist to sneak in one track from the upcoming Java /...
UV Funk 012: Edits Special
Just recently, when Philipp stood in front of  his record shelf, he thought it would be a good time to do an Edits mix. After all he got to know a lot of good music due to that danceable versions. So this UV Funk show is all about Edits. From start to finish. No voiceovers,...
UV Funk 011: Best Of 2012
Here you go! Once again Philipp asked a lot of Dresden-based and sometimes UV-related DJs and artists to comment on their biggest hit of the year. What came out is another fine collection of favourites and a good reason to look forward to the next year. UV Funk is a radio show which is broadcast...
UV Funk 010: Zombocombo Tribute
For those of you who don’t know the infamous Zombocombo from Munich: This is not your typical club night. For about 100 nights Polly Ester, Dompteur Mooner, DJ Kaput and Kitt Bang came up with a certain party theme like “Sun”, “Monastery”, “Police” or “Wrestling” and proved that there is absolutely nothing wrong with role...
UV Funk 009: Eddie C & Laptopbattle Special
The Canadian funkster Eddie C of Endless Flight-fame was nice enough to join us in the studio and have a little chat about Jamaican motorbike movies, his new home Berlin and his upcoming album. After that he played some steamy, red hot Disco tunes by himself and some of his Candian and Japanese buddies. And...
UV Funk 008: Proximity Open Air-Special
This time Philipp invited Mr. K and Monomood who are two of the guys that bring us the charming Proximity Open-Air. We will host our own stage there with Jacob Korn (live), Cuthead, Jacob Stoy (live) and many more. There has been a lot of talk about the event in the show but also some...
UV Funk 007: Soft Rock-Special
It’s a sure thing that every ride on the Autobahn needs good driving music. And what better driving music can you imagine than Soft Rock. Even if you are driving along uniform German freeways and not through impressive Californian landscapes, this music is so laid back that no slowpoke crossing your way can upset your...
UV Funk 006: Sandrow M., Scherbe & Jacob Stoy
The tenth record marks the first little anniversary for Uncanny Valley. So there was no need to think too hard about what would be the topic for the sixth UV Funk-show. Almost the entire staff of UV010 ran into the studio to chat a little about their connection to the label, their music or where...
UV Funk 005: Reissue Label Special
Listening to well researched compilations with lots of background infos and visual impressions from past decades and distant countries is better than watching documentaries. At least that’s what Philipp thinks. That’s why the March 2012 edition of UV Funk is all about those lovely Reissue Labels. And it features not only the big names like...
UV Funk 004: I Love My Radio Special
For the little radio station coloRadio here in Dresden it is not always that easy to deal with local authorities. To keep on with the program the station has to rely on donations and the goodwill of all concerned. Another way to provide a financial cushion and to direct the public focus on the radio’s...
UV Funk 003: Best Of 2011
Sure, the start into the new year is always accompanied by a look back. But as Philipp did not want to do your average Best-Of-2011-show with only his favourite tunes, he just asked a lot of Dresden-based and sometimes UV-related DJs and artists to comment on their biggest hit of the year. And yeah, this...
UV Funk 002: Elin, AKAAK & Tilman Tausendfreund
It’s not only the fact that both cities are situated on the Elbe river. Music-wise Hamburg and Dresden have a lot in common too. There is that certain deepness that artists from both cities are searching for in their House music. So it was like immediate spiritual brotherhood when three of those Hamburg-based friends came...
UV Funk 001: Record Store Day Special
We love vinyl here at Uncanny Valley. So we didn’t need too much time to think about when the guys from Record Store Day Bln asked us in autumn 2011, if we would contribute a special record for the RSD. As a result we delivered the handstamped UV Ltd 01 and hopped over to Berlins...
