For Kurt Baggaley AKA Scape One it all started way back in 1983 after an appearance on BBC Television performing Robot Dancing to Africa Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock”, he then became resolute to begin producing and writing Electro music, mainly concentrating on live performances within the local Hip Hop & Dance scenes along the UK’s South Coast which remained continuous on into the nineties.
With the advent of the new generation of contemporary Electro producers in the mid-nineties which helped re-start the Electro movement, Kurt joined in production duties with neighbouring associates Transparent Sound, with this collaboration came several releases on various labels, most noticeably ‘Freaks Frequency’.
As an independent producer Kurt has gone on to generate more material recording for various esteemed underground Electro labels in Europe, The UK and The USA. In 2001 ‘Simple Machines’ was one of the first releases that made the name ‘Scape One’ perceptible on the Electro landscape followed soon after by the series ‘Planet Funk Express’ which focused on the global development and diversity of Electro and ‘Submolecularnanotechrythmicpriciples’ showing a more deeper and experimental edge. Many more releases followed each focusing on a certain theme but always with the pulse of Synthetic funk with a futuristic attitude that always remains forward thinking. Live appearances and DJ sets have taken place in New York, London, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Chicago, Glasgow, Miami, Dublin, Seattle, Leipzig and many more including various Radio performances.
