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 plays. To set the right mood they made use of an exhaustless pool of decoration elements and crazy costumes which were collected over the years in Munich’s recycling centers and requisites. And the audience got into it too by disguising their true identities for just one night. It’s a sure thing that the music had to be special and thematically linked under this circumstances. Dancing in disguise works twice as good if there are some obscure and rather freaked out Disco tunes coming from the speakers.

As a tribute to the Zombocombo Philipp picked some of the past party themes and chose one or two tunes that might have fit in with those nights. It was in preparation of a Zombocombo-visit in Dresden which turned out to be a mad pirates and mutants theme party.

UV Funk is a radio show which is broadcast every third Friday from 9:30 pm to 11:00 pm on Dresden based community radio station coloRadio. Radio listeners in Dresden can tune in to the program on 98,3 or 99,4 MHz. Any other listeners can recall it here. The show is hosted by Philipp Demankowski and is all about stories, interviews and tracks out of the world of Electronic and Cosmic Music. 

This show was aired on 16th November 2012.
