TRAUM / BAROQUE Bowsie are Scott Curtis & Raymond o Connor, they both have been involved in the dance music scene since the early 90’s. After playing at a festival the guys got talking at the now infamous “party palace” and decided to merge and create a new sound together. Both spurred on by their determination and an undying confidence in the quality of their own music. Over the last five years the guys have been creating their very own twisted take on house and techno under their Full Funktion alias. Recently they decided to purely concentrate on techno with Full Funktion and release their house sound under “Bowsie”. Since the birth of Bowsie, the guys have had a three track ep release out on Sex Panda White also upcoming releases on Traum and Baroque.
The last couple of years have been amazing for Full Funktion with support from Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Butch, Phunk Investigation, Filthy Rich, Sasha Carassi, Loco & Jam, Slam, Gary Beck, Joy kitikonti, Mastiksoul, Lank, Paul van Dyk, Paco Osuna, Omid 16B, Gabriel Ben, Flash Brothers, Yves Eaux, Berny, David Herrero. So far they have had releases on Voltaire Music / Phunk Traxx / 1605 / Capsula / Baroque / Tigereye / Escapism Musique / White Label Recordings / Recovery Tech.
2012 saw Full Funktion collaborate with Ridgewalkers on Karma with Lank remix which was played all over the world and featured on Matt Darey’s Nocturnal show. They have had the pleasure of playing support for Slam, Gary beck, Joel Mull, Spektre, Paul Woolford, Dave Seaman, Kaiserdisco, Joseph Capriati, Xpress 2, Audiojack, Sebastien Leger, Nic Fanciulli, Wally Lopez, John Dahlback… Phobiq label boss Sasha Carassi (Drumcode) gave full support to Full Funktion’s darkest release “Maximo” at many of his European gigs. Following this, Sasha Carassi released Solid state and You lose on his Capsula imprint.
2013 brought another two huge EP’s, Senor Nice on Escapism Musique with some seriously deep mixes from Spencer K and Francesco Bonoro which gathered support from some of the biggest names in the industry. The last release of 2013 was Sao Paulo which was remixed by Filthy Rich, Def Disko and Phunk Investigation who released it on their beloved “Phunk Traxx”. This track was featured on Umek’s 1605 mix compilation.
