Kurt Baggaley gained attention with his releases under the alias Scape One writing for various Electro and Techno labels in the early 2000's. Although his musical interests go back as far as the 80's with projects ranging from robot dancing to writing beats for local Hip Hop and Electro projects. In that time gaining influences from all aspects of electronic music.
More recently Kurt has evolved his productions into a more personal and unique sound, taking in influences from early 80's Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New York Club with a fusion of Italo Disco, Euro Synth and Electro. As well as being influenced by these pioneering scenes he also tries to keep the production old school by using classic drum machines and synthesizers alongside some new machines to inject a unique sound. It can be analog or digital as the end result is the important factor.
The results have proved to be very popular and firstly being snapped up by labels such as Italo House label HotMix Records and the Deep House imprint Stem Records. Things really took off with the release of 'Former Self' on Nuno Dos Santos' label Something Happening Somewhere with an excellent remix from The Drifter. This EP has gained support from Joris Voorn, John Digweed, Atish, Lehar, Dominik Eulberg, Solee, and many more great DJ's.
This has lead to much interest and a spawn of new releases and remixes are scheduled from labels such as Abstract Theory, Chapter 24, CPU and Space Factory. Alongside these will be follow up Eps on HotMix and Stem.
