What’s Up Weekend? 15 – 21 January 2015


This week on your Party Kalendar we’re getting all up and around a handful of particularly tasty, dark and moody pure techno affairs, which couldn’t be better placed that in mid-Berlin winter. Amongst them – the 31st (31st!!) edition of the much-loved, immer gut Grounded Theory to which we, dear party Leute, have a cheeky guest list giveaway for. Hallöchen.

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.


URBAN SPREE – Lief Hall + Trevor Lee Larson + No Fear of Pop – MEHR INFOS


STATTBAD Bron loves it!

Grounded Theory returns to Stattbad this Freitag. We’re getting giddy, here are a few reasons why:

1. Now up to their 31st party, this crew are more than masters in the art of party making. Vibes – got them. Carefully curated line-up – natürlich. A loyal following of techno-loving party people – hallöchen. One of Berlin’s best techno parties, you can’t really go wrong with GT.

2. On that line-up note – this round includes Swedish techno by way of Drumcode’s Joel Mull, UK bass at it’s finest from R&S’s Tessela, *live* dark techno from Dement3d’s French duo Polar Inertia and rounding things out, DJs set’s from Dresden’s Lockertmatik and Grounded Theory’s Milton Bradley. 5/5 for qualität right thurrrr.

3. Stattbad – (on this night), 2 dungeons full of winding pipes and – still – somewhat of a verboten vibe.  Dark, sweaty, and good reason to venture to Wedding.

4. It’s Freitag – and we’re increasingly leaning towards the Friday-night, clubnight thang over Sat. Your weekend is guaranteed to feel longer, and hell – have you tried waking up fresh on a Sunday, it’s a total game changer.


Still not convinced? How does techno for free/kostenlos/gratis sound? Yep, thanks to the lovely Grounded Theory crew we 1 x 2 guest lists spots to giveaway. Oh hihi. To win:

  1. head to the Lucy vs. the Globe facebook page.
  2. fill in your details.
  3. check your email on Friday afternoon!….You have until Friday, 17:00 to enter. It’s a flash sale Leute, get cracking.

ARENA CLUB – Bron loves it!

After what we’re told was a tasty debut last month, this weekend sees new party series Modulate return for another night of state altering techno at Treptow’s Arena. Conceived as a night to showcase finely curated techno that encourages you to, well, lose your mind a little, this second edition will feature a live set from Italian affiliate player Dino Sabatini, alongside dj sets from Berlin-based Dr. Rubinstein (get a round this teaser here) and Figure Third’s Parasol and Savart. Predication: moody, Berlin-winter techno, perfectly suited to one of Berlin’s better dancefloors.


STATTBADBron loves it!

Urgh – hiya. We’re back again, ignoring everything that we just said about shifting your party nacht to a Freitag, and can you blame us? This weekend’s Stattnacht features FunkinEven, Sebo K, Paula Temple, Randomer, Dana Ruh, Ancient Methods and Andrejko – and if (like me) you’ve been taking it easy these past couple of weeks, this is  surefire way to reignite  your dancefloor presence via this sweaty, hand-raising (boiler room) / fist-pumping (bunker room) session. Get into das Mood with FunkinEven’s 2014 XLR8R mix over here.
