This weekend we’re more than a little be envious of the giant Spanish fiesta going down in Barcelona (we’re looking at you Primavera Sound) but doing our best to make up for it via a number of schön parties taking place around the Haupstadt. The Berghain Garden also looks set to be fucking vibey, so there’s that.
Below are some of the events we are recommending for the week ahead in Berlin. 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.
PRINCE CHARLES – Bron loves it!
Exposé, Prince Charles’ in-house night focussed on showcasing need-t0-know labels, return this Freitag and this round they’ll be featuring the ganz lecker Tartelet Records. Amongst other goodness, the Copenhagen-based label released one of 2014’s smoothest numbers, Max Graef‘s Rivers Of The Red Planet, and the local will also be a part of this night’s line-up. He’ll be joined by the equally smooth Damiano von Eckert, alongside Glen Astro who’s new ablum, Throwback, just been released (and currently streaming on Thump, over here). Rounding out the you’ll find locals IMYRMIND and Muff Deep. ”Slamming funk, disco, hip-hop and house music” is promised and we can’t think of a vibier start your weekend.

BERGHAIN/PANORAMA BAR – Bron loves it!
Following on from an extended affair over the long weekend (on which the Garden kept kicking all of Mond), their open air floor will open again this Sunday and play host to Chez Damier, Gerd Janson and French Fries. Back inside away from the harshness of daylight, Shifted and Sigha’s labels (Avian and Our Circular Sound respectively) take over the main floor, and joining the labels’ bosses will be Kobosil, Positive Centre (live), Answer Code Request, Oscar Mulero and more. Upstairs? It’s a We Play House thang, featuring Jeremy Underground, FCL Red D + San Soda, Russ Gabriel, LIVE and Jensen. When in doubt – play a surefire vibes card with the big haus.
