England, one of the most prolific producers of the underground UK Electro scene.
After appearing on

With the arrival of the new generation of Electro producers like
Aux 88and Drexciyain the mid-nineties, Kurt joined in production duties with neighbouring associates Transparent Sound who had started releasing new Electro releases on their own label. 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. ‘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. Many more releases followed, each focusing on a certain theme but always with the pulse of Synthetic funk with a futuristicattitude 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, Leipzigand many more including various Radio performances.
Kurt prefers to draw inspiration from various sources which range from the
