Managed to avoid party burnout and/or spending all of Jan’s earnings before it’s even Jan (hallo, guten tag, over here)? This first week of Jan it’s actually a pretty ideal with a big dip in overcrowding, far less chance of getting setting alight from stray Feuerwerke and while perhaps fewer open dancefloors, the ones on offer are pretty damn vibey ones. From ://about blank, to Gegen at Kit Kat, Horse Meat Disco’s 7th Berlin Bday, Cocktail d’Amore and a Peebs-only Sat, 2016 is off to a punchy start.
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.
://ABOUT BLANK – Bron loves it!
Returning to one of our fave dancefloors this second weekend of Jan, is Ghosts, and this round sees a fittingly darker techno offer for this “gefühlt wie -8” Freitag abend. Leading the charge, legendary Deutsch techno queen Cio D’Or (prologue) – last seen tearing up Berlin back in Aug in Berghain – alongside a live set from Sandwell District’s Rrose. They’ll also be joined by nemorous rec’s Anja Zaube, Vertical67 doing thangs live and residents Resom, Diwa and Silva Rymd. 7 very good reasons to head to Markgrafendamm 24c this Freitag.

PRINCE CHARLES – Bron loves it!
Got some feel good leftover from Silvester? Bring those vibes right on overe here, where this long-standing international party crew Horse Meat Disco, celebrate their 7th year in Berlin. Happening monthly in Berlin (and weekly in London), HMD is one of the more surefire bets for a night full of moreish house and disco vibes, and this Jan edition will feature the usual crew – James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Filthy Luka and Severino – alongside special guest, Snax live.

ROTER SALON – Everybody loves it!
Sonntag abend gig vibes via the totally infectious (in a really positive way) Mary Ocher & Your Government – who are celebrating the release of their self-titled album out Jan 7th on Klangbad. We admittedly didn’t know a whole lot about Mary and co until recently when this gig landed in our inbox, however one very long YouTube session on loop later, we’re addicted – part musically, part because Mary seems rad and let’s be friends? Taking place at Volksbühne’s Roter Salon, doors at 19:00, show at 20:00, expect lots of new tunes and hopefully a few of Mary’s earlier numbers, like Man vs. Air.
