May we introduce: Frank Deckert is one of Dresden’s most meticulous music lovers. He’s the kind of guy who can be super angry when realizing that one of his records lands up in the wrong record sleeve. Apart from that he’s the nicest guy to have a conversation with. And since he has so much knowledge about the most obscure white labels out there, it is also a lot of fun to listen to music with him. That’s why Philipp couldn’t be more happy when Franc approached him to do an UV Funk special about those unsung heroes from Manchester, Bristol or London, whose music would later be summarized as UK Street Soul. It’s music from the late 1980s to the late 1990s, made with cheap drum machines and sweet voices, and also with heavy influences from Reggae, Soul, Funk and even Electro. So, please enjoy Franc playing his Street Soul records.
