What’s Up Weekend? 12 – 18 February 2015


We’re theming this week 2 parts ”Valentine’s Rave”, 1 part Nordic Babes,  starting with another round of Ja Ja Ja Berlin at Flux Bau TONIGHT,  followed by a punchy little Freitags number from Tough Love at Arena Club and rounding things out with 24+ hours plus in the big house (my kinda romance). Coupled up or team solo, get all over those dancefloor feelings.

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.

***DISCLAIMER: these aren’t the only discos that are going on – they are just the ones that stand out.


FLUX BAULucy loves it!

It’s February and it seems we have all started to settle into 2015 rather nicely. After the extended holiday period and general down time Ja Ja Ja Berlin is BACK ! As the first edition of the year they have invited Swedish dark electronic pop newcomer DNKL, Norwegian indie kids Kid Astray and Finnish pop duo Eva & Manu. Ja Ja Ja takes place at FluxBau. This one is SOLD OUT – but like the super cool femmes we are we have 1×2 tickets to give away.


Winning is easy, all you have to do is:

Winners will be notified by 4P this afternoon – meaning 16:00 TODAY (February 12).

ARENA CLUBBron loves it!

Kick start you wochenende in the vibiest of fashions this Freitag at Arena Club, where Tough Love returns for it’s third edition. A new-ish monthly night taking place on one of our preferred Berlin dancefloors, this series has had a pretty impressive bill of guests so far and this round keeps up the pace with a live set from Triology Tapes’ Ekman (get a taster over here) AND Hamburg / Golden Pudel / Lux Rec’s, Helena Hauff (!!), doing her electro-y thang. Yes, yes and yes. On a housier front, they’ll also be joined by Live at Robert Johnson’s Orson Wells, with resident Hans Winter rounding out the nacht. Prediction – ravey.

Support comes from Germany Flavio Diners (who were told is an outstanding vinyl collector) and regulars Brinsley Kazak, Dylan Thompson and Josh Tweek. Get all over that loved up vibe.
