As you might have noticed our home town Dresden isn’t easy to call an open-minded city these days. There are pretty obvious xenophobic tendencies thanks to the painful Pegida marches which have been taking place in Dresden since October 2014. Among the many initiatives that oppose these developments there is the collective Tolerave. It’s a group of creative artists, event managers and friends of electronic dance music that wants to keep the city of Dresden as a colourful and multicultural place by bringing people together. What better way to do that than to throw a big party to which refugees and immigrants are explicitly invited?

In preparation for a big event taking place at Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden UV Funk host Philipp Demankowski invited Israeli-born Ehud Roffe aka E-Hut and Schadi aka Einfach So who was raised in Syria to the show. Both are hyperactive jack-of-all-trades in Dresdens music community which would be much poorer without them. At the show E-Hut is hammering savage beats in his Electribe based live set while Einfach So delivers a fine old school mix which spotlights his Hip-Hop roots as well as his DJ skills. Be sure to catch him at his Sabotage residency. But for now, enjoy the show!

UV Funk is a radio show which is broadcasted 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. It’s all about stories, interviews and tracks out of the world of Cosmic Electronic Music. But watch out! Mostly it’s in German. 

The show was aired on 20th March 2015
