Wow what a great few weeks its been! just got back from Lyon France, had a great time with The Funky Drive Band and Funkfreaks International. Big thanks to Le Maison Mere for having me play. The crowd were amazing, so loud and appreciative. We all Funked on till the early hours of the morning.
It was really nice to inject some positive vibes into a country that has seen a lot of trouble in recent weeks. I really hope we can all continue to build and have a good time. Massive thanks to Kashif and Adier for putting me up and taking great care of me.
And We continue to the Funksters of Berlin, really looking forward to meeting Timmy Lee (Vexkiddy) an expat who now runs the Royal Athlete label and this
great night Hot Pony
Wow i can’t say enough thanks to Simon Schar for setting up this great night in beautiful Bern Switzerland! The night has to be up there at the top so far. What an amazing scene they have there, and everyone seems to be an professional DJ. Marc Matsuki & Jay Sanders Matto played the most ridiculous set that really got people in the mood, i really feel like I’ve made some solid friendships.
It was such a great honor to play Wicked Jazz Sounds! Huge thanks to Lucas Benjamin for getting me the gig. He played a great DJ set along side Leroy Rey. Mirjam Van der Loo provided some beautiful vocals. The legendary Jeff Hollie who features on Frank Zappers album ‘Joes Garage’ stole the crowd with his amazing Sax skills, we partied until 5:30am and the vibe will last forever!
Huge thanks to Chris Neal aka ‘Mr Neal’ for his hospitality in Frankfurt, it was great to meet up with Walla P and Dr Mad from Voyage Funktastique (Montreal Canada) who have been supporting my music since i started. It was great to meet DJ Debo who’s all the way from California, he played some choice cuts that had people loosing their minds on the dance floor. Veruschka and Sherm da Worm also played an excellent set and a great time was had by all.
Two more exciting shows to announce involving a Euro road trip through four different countries, kicking off fist at the International FunkFreaks event in Frankfurt Germany June 13th, then onto Amsterdams Sugar Factory for the Wicked Jazz Sounds! check the flyers for the details

Welcome to my official website dedicated to modern grooves.

His music embraces elements of the 1980s, in particular Boogie-funk from 1983.
Sequenced analogue bass, blended with live slap-bass guitar are the bones of Sven’s music. Driven mainly by vintage drum machine and synthesizer, Sven pays dues to a prolific past time whilst making a contribution to a modern-funk era”.
