Infos :

Cologne based lone ranger, producer, coffee drinker and occasional bike rider Steffen Baldo aka Ugly Drums has been fine tuning the spokes of his career for 10 hard working years.

Making early marks in the scene with his “Next Room EP” on German based label Polyfon, which received support from Moodymann, MCDE and cemented his reputation early on. Steffen later released dance floor workouts on Rush Hour, Fifty Fathoms Deep, Black Key Records, Quintessential and KOLOR LTD.
His 2013 album left a burning mark on the sample based house scene, pushing the boundaries of the melting pot of his home base Cologne.
Mr Drums has also extensively backed up his original works by remixing the likes of Manuel Tur, Toby Tobias, Holly Backler, Andy Ash, Inkswel and Bartellow.

After the smashing “Get Up” edit released on FACES alongside Kid Sublime and Jayson Brothers, Ugly Drums is back on FACES Records with his best work yet- “The Freak EP”! Co-produced by Kalakuta Soul System, Chesney and featuring Detroit based MC/Producer :brownstudy, Steffen deliver a multi dimensional, raw, untainted EP, that displays a splash of all colours- House, Disco and Hip Hop. A definitive weapon for the record crate!

Always the same three things from the local Indian grocer. Incense, soap, samosas.

Jerusalem artichokes like whoa.

Crazy huge patch of sweet white clover.
