What’s Up Weekend? 21 – 27 January 2016


As winter creeps on, so do the winter sads and amongst other things – red wine, at least one getaway a month, red wine, slow cooked alles, red wine – we recommend hitting a cosy club for some positive and social feels, and some good old fashioned getting busy on a dancefloor.

Our picks for this wochenende are below. Each of them is either highlighted with a:

Bron loves it! – more electronic, than not.
Lucy loves it! – more indie boy band/ pop vibes/ not techno.
Everyone loves it! – 2.5 words: shit’s ACE and/or edible.

BERGHAINBron loves it!

50 releases down, one of Berlin’s favourite labels, Modeselektor’s 50Weapons, is winding up operations however not before a string of international parties featuring the artists that have helped shaped this tasty label. This Fri: the hometown edition will take place (at the Big Haus, natürlich), and the line-up is predictably punchy featuring MODESELEKTORShedBenjamin Damage (live), BAMBOUNOUPhon_o (live) and FJAAK. Bitte bitte schön. Suggested pre-listening/general vibe over here.


PRINCE CHARLESBron loves it!

Well this sounds like it could be pretty geil. Taking it’s name from the “principle associated with modernist architecture and industrial design in the 20th century” (kudos Wikipedia), Form Follows Funktion – the party – is a series of events featuring international artists from both the contemporary arts & advanced music fields. For this round, treat your eyes to the work of Xavier Hirsch, a Berlin-based artist focussing on black/white exhibits with a minimalistic slant. Musically – Ukrainian master Vakula, will be (very likely) bringing vibes alongside Hivern Discs’ Pional and locals OUER (live) and Spanks. Doors at 23:00, advance tickets available on RA.

ACUD MACHT NEUEEverybody loves it!

This Samstag head to Acud Macht Neue for a nacht of delicious tunes from really northern Europe, with a Shameless/Limitless curated Finnish takeover oder “JEKS Unterhaltungsnacht”. Led by Weird World’s Jaakko Eino Kalevi who will this time be doing the dj-thang, Jaakko will be joined by two up and coming Fins who we don’t know much about however from a quick listen also tap right into those dreamy feels. Both Helsinki-based and performing live sets on this abend, we’re told Long-Sam‘s “unique style ranges from noisy atonal sounds to straightforward pop melodies and harmony” and Melting Hearts has a bunch of credible fans being booked to support Julia Holter, Maria Minerva and Molly Nilsson in Helsinki. If your 2016 resolution was to go to more gigs or check out new artists (hihi, over here) this could be a great starting point. Doors at 22:00, a mere 5€ entry.
