What’s Up Weekend? 4 – 11 May 2016

SHARE ME:

Summer has unofficially started (calling it) and on top of an overwhelming urge to spend every daylight hour outside, we’re also getting extra excited about a ramped up party season – and a cheeky mid-week Feiertag. Bitteee schön.

Kicking off a day early this week, our party picks for the next week or so 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.

Highlights include the return of Room 4 Resistance and Stattbad’s Stattnacht at a new home – both of which you can win guest list to (!) – alongside a live gig from Gaika, more former Stattbad vibes via Keinemusik at Funkhaus and a daytime party from Leipzig label KANN. It’s almost overwhelming.

KANTINE AM BERGHAINBron loves it!

Looking for a really good reason to head out on a school night? Look no further – with Shameless/Limitless, Kometenmelodien and Paper and Iron playing host to Brixton-native, Warp Records affiliate and up and coming wizard of all the ideal London-bred feels, Gaika. His thing: a Mischung of grime and garage with dancehall, hip-hop, R&B and all that’s in between. Joining him for the night? Canadian artist Ben Jackson, who mixes bass/trap/footwork/ballroom and sits somewhere between pop and experimental, and German DJ, artist and writer D.R.E.E.A, who were told selects an “adventurous and rugged style of music” – we’re into it. Doors at 20:00, secure your tickets in advance (this afternoon) or try your luck on the door. Warm-up with Gaika’s new mix tape over here.

FUNKHAUS (hosted by STATTBAD) – Bron loves it!

One year since Berlin’s favourite swimming-pool-turned-club shut it’s doors, this weekend the crew behind Stattbad a throwing a pair of parties in memory of all the vibes had on their former dancefloors. While the search for a suitable new home continues (and we hope they find one – we had some pretty epic parties at that ravey Wedding Schwimmbad), we’re promised that they will continue to show up in special guest homes – with this weekend’s host being Funkhaus, the former stated-owned broadcasting complex of the GDR. Kicking off on Fri, the first night will be a former Stattbad regular, a Keinemusik label night featuring usual crew: &ME, Adam Port, Rampa, David Mayer and Reznik. Kicking off at 22:00, tickets are available in advance or on the door, and part 2 of this weekend’s parties is below.

://ABOUT BLANKBron loves it!

With a weekend ahead of sun and dreamy temps, we can’t think of anything better than soaking up those “summer-is-coming/pretty-much-here” feels on an open air garden dancefloor during the daytime . And in ideal al fresco news, two lovely parties will be taking place at ://about blank this summery weekend. Saturday’s vibe – the return of Room 4 Resistance, a party dedicated to diversity – of musical styles, sexualities, ethnicities, bodies – that aims to feature women, queers, transpeople, and people of colour in leadership roles, without limiting to those categories. On top of all that – their line-ups are pretty great too, with this May edition featuring guests Machine woman live, Purita D and Bella Cuts alongside residents Luz, LMGM and Doc Sleep. Bonus extra: this round will also include tasty food from Women in Exile. Maximising the most of the sunshine hours, the party will kick off at 11:00 and run through until 22:00. Tickets on the door, oder for 2 lucky dancers….

Following on from their Keinemusik night the evening before (see above), the Stattbad friends and fam vibe continue tonight with the return of their ever on-point, in-house party, Stattnacht. Continuing on from where they left off, the line-up is suitably punchy for their return edition and includes guaranteed party-starter, Space Dimension Controller, alongside Delusions Of Grandeur’s Session Victim.
