Jägermeister Wirtshaus Tour x Stuttgart

10:20 AM

Step-by-step the back in early February all white map of Germany is turning herb-liqueur-brown. Now, the Jägermeister Wirtshaus Tour lands in this republic’s South, where on May 19 the cosiness of Stuttgart’s Calwer Eck will be over for one night. In the first craft brewery of the city, featuring a menu opening in proper regional style with Flädlesuppe and Maultauschen, the international three-piece of Trio der Bag Raiders, Peaches and aUtOdiDakT guest.

Bag Raiders are the next hitmakers from Down Under taking the long journey up to the north-west. Two years and a half ago, their b-side “Shooting Star” made them ride a global wave of attention and success two, they later neither left with their single “Sunlight” nor their debut album (which sadly is not coming out in Germany before June 30). Currently, their on disco and electronica fermented pop follows you to everywhere with “Way Back Home” soundtracking a national advertisement campaign. Having already warmed-up themselves with a few German and European gigs in the recent weeks already, the band should bring the crowd on fire immediately.

A master of this craft is surely Peaches. Whether as musical star in her own Llyod Webber adapation Jesus Peaches Christ Superstar and the partly autobiographical Peaches Does Herself or on tour with her recent album I Feel Cream (XL Recordings), which she already performed live and in full action with her leg in plaster: Merrill Nisker belongs to the cream. For Stuttgart she’s now preparing one of her infamous, not less intense DJ sets, while she’s currently fooling around with “Mud” in the same-titled video.

Meanwhile, local hero aUtOdiDakT declares, “genres are dead,” speaking only the language of bass himself. No wonder, that out of the former Wirtshaus acts Proxy and Tom Deluxx are his favourites. Now it’s time for him to become a part of the story.

Win tickets for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange

04:19 PM

One night, 14 countries: On Saturday the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange will connect half of the globe with each other let’s Miami meet with London, Bangkok with Beirut, Sao Paulo with Sydney among many others. Curated by local scene stars not only artists as N*E*R*D or Bonde do Rolê, but also containers filled with lots of representative nightlife content will make their way to their international exchange partners. Berlin is hence looking forward to welcome the scene of Cape Town featuring Gazelle and Spoek Mathambo at the Münze (details at the end), while ATBMarkus Schultz and Monika Kruse will turn the night into day in our names in South Africa.

Actually, Gazelle are not unknown to Berlin after recently playing Cookies, but now the collective is once again throwing it’s style hybrid of funk, disco and native, also electronic rhythms (greetings from kwaito), which they call themselves LIM POP (following the name of the province Limpopo), into the ring.  Here, Spoek Mathambo, a self-described “post-Apartheid post-hiphop posterboy”, will await them with raps and beats, both really worth listening to. Furthermore he makes a great front figure for the combos Sweat.X and Playdoe – a man full of many (live) talents.

But there’s also some well-know, if not to say Berlin support, since no less than Boys Noize (DJ set), who just celebrated his 50th release on his own label BNR with new smashing single 1010 / Yeah, and Peaches, who recently brought two musicals with the dildo epic Peaches Does Herself and – together with Chilly Gonzales – Peaches Christ Superstar on stage. And our host and curator is the busy Conny Opper, the creative mind behind legendary Rio and Scala clubs, Berlin Festival, Broken Hearts Club and COOP. Get more details here.

We are giving away 3 pair of guestlist invites among all commentators, who are 18 years or more old and leave us some kind words below or on our Facebook. As always winners will be picked random – so good luck!
