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.


GRETCHEN – Eclair Fifi & Nina LAS Vegas & Joseph Marinetti – MEHR INFOS

SCHWUZ – My Haus with Paolo Di Nola, Mauro Feola & Julie Chance – MEHR INFOS 

KANTINE AM BERGHAIN – Kometenmelodien: Jam City, Jack Chosef, Joey Hansom – MEHR INFOS


ARENA CLUBBron loves it!

A pretty perfect home for pure techno, this Fri Arena Club will be doing more of what it does best and playing host to a line-up of broody techno from Berlin-based collective Moments. With visuals by the29nov films,  this edition of their party-arm sees Semantica Records’ Stanislav Tolkachev doing both the live and dj thang, alongside Flexxseal’s Christopher Joseph – and you should treat yourself to recent-ish release Mind at Sea over here. Rounding out the night will be resident / Dynamic Reflection’s,  I/Y. Our pick for Freitag – and likely a bloody delicious way to kickstart your weekend.

BERGHAIN / PANORAMA BAR – Bron loves it!

It’s a something-for-everyone kinda vibe at the Big Haus this Sat-Mond, with a mix of techno, bassier flavous and the left of centre below, and feeling-envokers from start to finish above. In plain speak, on the main floor you’ll find Objekt, Lakker (live), DVS1Tessela, Len Faki, Samuel Kerridge, James Ruskin and Hector Oaks. While Pbar invites Nick HöppnerMargaret Dygas, Agoria, Cassy, Discodromo, Maceo Plex, Monika Kruse and Shonky. Casual. Suggested pre-weekend listening comes by way of Nick Höppner’s RA podcast from this week. Shit’s ridiculous – get around that Saturday vibe.

ACUD MACHT NEUEverybody loves it!

Torstrassen Festival returns this June and to get us into das Mood, they’re throwing together a seris of warm-ups with selected pals. This first edition comes via our friends at Shameless / Limitless, with the little Tuesday soirée showing off the talent of songwriter / producer / multi-instrumentalist Shub Roy aka Night Musik (who you may know from his collaborations with Dirty Beaches) AND local duo Deaths (who through a quick listen, we’re fast getting around). Kicking off at 21:00, you’ll find tickets at the door. If your mid-week needs a shake-up and/or you’re keen to check out acts on the rise, this is the one.

About BRON

Bron writes on all things techno. If there's a party at the club, she is probably there - with fiddy and all the gang. She also likes gluten free bread (because she can't eat wheat) and wine.
