(Deutsch) Berlin : Wochenendplaner : Weggeblitzt

03:43 PM

Das geht ja gut los, dieses Wochenende! Nämlich heute, am Donnerstag, vorgezogen zusagen, und als ob die Feiergöttinnen ihr Füllhorn über der Spree ausgeleert haben. Rein ins Getümmel!

Donnerstag: Für das heutige Konzert Teleport im Rahmen des Krake Festivals sind unsere Verlosungsplätze leider schon weg. Für The Field, Emika, Three Trapped Tigers u.w. lohnt es sich aber auch den nicht allzu großen Eintritt im Festsaal Kreuzberg zu zahlen.

Ein Hort der Kreativen ist bekanntlich das Berghain. Nun wurde dort ein weiterer Raum des alten Heizkraftwerks erschlossen: Das Erdgeschoss Kubus des bietet bis zum 26. August der Gruppenaustellung ALLE -Worker’s Pearls Raum. Heute beginnt bei um 19 Uhr die Vernissage, ab 22 Uhr geht es bei freiem Eintritt (bis Mitternacht, danach 5€) mit einer Party in der Panoramabar weiter. U.a. werden Rummelsnuff, Shambhu & The True Love und Brett Knacksen zugegen sein.

Ebenfalls gratis gelangt man heute zu einem gemeinsamen Konzert der gleichsam fantastischen Hundreds und When Saints Go Machine. Allerdings gilt beim Finale des Levi’s Print Workshop in der Alten Münze: first come, first serve.

Freitag: Eine neue Ausgabe von Introducing steht an. Aus Knoxville, Tennessee, reisen dafür Royal Bangs an. Vor mehr als anderthalb Jahren noch im Westgermany zu sehen, nehmen sie nun mit ihrem zweiten Album Flux Outside die Bühne des Magnet Clubs. Die fesselnde Verschmelzung von Noiserock und Electronica wird begleitet von Auftritten der Wolf People, Freedom or Death’s und DJ-Sets.

Das skandinavische Wochenendprogramm bieten hingegen die Stockholmer Discopopper Montauk bei der Scandinavian Disco im Roten Salon der Volksbühne.

Samstag: Kleine Rückblende in das Vorjahr: Glass Eights, das Debütalbum von John Roberts (Foto), war einer der Platten des Jahres im Sektor ‘Deep House’. Plötzlich war dieser wieder wirklich deep, simpel wie flamboyant zugleich, konnte sowohl zärtlich als auch kräftig sein. Heute legt der in Berlin lebende US-Amerikaner und Dial-Records-Künstler mit seinen Labelkollegen Pawel und CNX im Horst KRZBRG auf.

Wer lieber einschneidende Gitarrenerfahrungen präferiert, wird kaum am Festsaal Kreuzberg vorbeikommen: Hier spielen u.a. Crocodiles und Comanechi eine sicherlich brodelnde Show. Das Sizarr Soundsystem bittet außerdem zum Tanz. Und wir verlosen ja auch noch Karten dafür.

Außerdem verabschiedet man sich im Backyard mit u.a. Salto Mortale von Christina Aguilera (Partylink), währenden die empfehlenswerten Thieves Like Us im Picknick aufspielen. Und unsere Freunde von Acid Washed lassen einmal kurz die Arbeiten an ihrem neuem Material ruhen, um euch zu Grillen und Musik ins Bravo (Auguststraße 69) einzuladen.

Das nachmittägliche Warm-up besorgt das Über Lebenskunst Festival an der Spree: Auf dem Dach des HKW findet bei freiem Eintritt die Fahrraddisko (“Vom Hedonisten zum Hometrainer”) mit Pilocka Krach, Sven Dohse (es regt sich Bar25-Gefühl…), den Gebrüdern Teichmann u.a. statt. Klingt doch spaßig, oder?

Win : The Magician in Berlin

05:05 PM

Stephen Fasano alias The Magician (photo: Athos Burez) will be in Germany for two days, heating up disco nights first at Munich’s Baby on Thursday and then on Friday at Berlin’s What?!.

Melt! Festival 2011

08:24 PM

As already in the year of  2009 and 2010 we presented you the most important and current information directly from the Melt!-Festival. In contrast to the last years the festival returned the his roots. But this wasn’t a reason for the people to stay away. And so the melt! was sold out early ago. Despite of the electronical renaissance with Paul Kalkbrenner, The Koletzkis, DJ Kotze, Boys Noize and many more the headliner were well know Indie-Legeneds: Pulp. This gallery will take you on a short tour through all days and stages at the Melt!.

Win : Mort à la Différence : Light Asylum in Berlin

05:23 PM

Events that are programmatically linked to whole utopias are seldom. Leave out the ones aiming on a society with a 24/7 happy party concept or the fully digitally connected mankind and the picture looks even sadder. The highly recommendable Berlin-based blog Expatriarch is now willing to fill the gap, bringing their own manifesto to life outside the online world with new party Mort À La Différence on this Saturday at Chez Jacki. Here well-selected bands and DJs will pursue your preparation for a post-paternalistic world, which has abandoned the idea of a pre-set gender binary – and surely make you dance.

The night’s main act will be the Brooklyn duo Light Asylum (photo), formed by the breathtaking singer Shannon Funchess and her counterpart Bruno Coviello. The music (a highly concentrated dark synthwave) serves as medium for a suppressed creativity and sexuality. And appropriately intense are their gigs, while in their look SM and neon optics melt with sacral imageries. The debut EP In Your Tension was first self-released by them in 2010 and just recently got reissued by Mexican Summer. International institutions as Cold Wave praise Light Asylum, SALEM made a remix and since 2010 Funchess is a permanent part of !!! (chk-chk-chk), while also working with Teengirl Fantasy, Telepathe and TV on the Radio.

The the line-up continues with the girls of Kool Thing, who just recently amazed us with their minimalistic rock as Austra‘s support act at Berghain. At the DJ decks you’ll find Nikolaj Tange Lange and Jemek Jemowit. Joey Hansom, the night’s host and head of Expatriarch, will make even two appearances: first with his new band G-DMOTHER, then also as a DJ. You can listen to a radio mix he made for the event here.

We give away 2×2 guestlist for Mort À La Différence among all comments you leave below. Winners will be chosen random, so good luck everybody!

Live : Melt! Picknick

11:33 AM

Bad news for all yet non-ticketholders: this year’s Melt! Festival (July 15 to 17) is already sold out (only a few and special passes can be bought here according to the festival team). If you still want to experience a great dance at the fantastic festival area of the Ferropolis (or just want to warm-up for the actual festival as planned) you still get the chance to do so on this Sunday. Then the second Melt! Picknick, as the Melt! Weekender an official pre-party for the big summer weekend, will take place near Gräfenhainichen.

This year’s curator is an old friend of Melt! and long-term collaborator. So for instance Alex Ridha alias Boys Noize’ gig with his friend Erol Alkan at Melt! 2009 is still unforgotten. Now the Berlin-based producer and DJ has again invited his British mate plus other well-known acts and creative partners such as Tiga, Djedjotronic and Jan Driver to the former Anhalt open-face mine. Alkan will also bring his New Zealand Phantasy label artist Connan Mockasin with, who’s one of the last real weirdos in the game and the creator of the beautifully pop music re-creating Please Turn Me Into The Snat. In terms of stylistic diversity he can also compete with Nottingham’s Lone, although the latter is rather coming from the electronic corner of modern music.

Torpedo in Berlin

08:36 PM

What would you do if you were a successful musician and didn’t know what to do with your creativity? Right. You found another new band. As done by Pontus Levahn. In 2004 the drummer of Tiger Lou founded Torpedo together with the band’s bassist Erik Welén.

As “Kraftwerk with a heart” – how they consider themselves – Torpedo revive the sound of the 80’s but without loosing the connection to their indie roots. In 2008 the Swedes released their debut In The Assembly Line, an already very ripe and profound longplayer, which they took on tour for their first headliner gigs. In April 2011 their second LP We followed. On this one you can find the current single “Waiting For The Fall” with the associated video ,which is a piece of art as well: dark, apocalyptical and just beautiful.

On June 3 Torpedo are coming to Berlin to play at the Levee Club. We are giving away 3×2 free tickets für the gig. Just leave a comment below to get your chance.
