In between drinking as much glühwein as possible at 2 MANY WEIHNACHTSMARKTS (in a good way), we’re vibing a wochenende-lang winter opening of Ipse, Giegling, John Talabot and more at Stattbad and an event which we really wish we’d come up with ourselves, Thai & Techno. Urgh, yes bitte. The weekend is about as jam-packed as it gets – go out there and get yuletide. X
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.
COLONIA NOVA – Everybody loves it!
THAI & TECHNO ! If you haven’t been on the blog for the last few weeks, maybe you’ve missed this nugget from the promotional wheel – but let’s just sum it up quickly. The general idea here is we have the Karl Weathers DJ team play all the moody Berlin’esque good stuff to set the mood, while the kitchen serves up a selection of modern Thai snacks to indulge the senses… paired with a range of delightful cocktails from BonBon‘s lead mixologist Maria Neumann – !!!! This one is all about aromatic curries to pandan chicken parcels, a vegan noodle stir fry and twists on old favourites such as Pad Thai and pork buns – ranging from 2-6€…. THAT’S OUR KIND OF PRICE POINT ! Food runs from 19-22, music and booze til 24.
STATTBAD – Bron loves it!
I’ll be the first to admit I (Bron) overuse ‘vibes’ – both the word and the emotional/atmospheric state itself. However if there was ever a party fitting of the v-word, this Friday’s Naive Melodies at Stattbad must surely be up there. To set the scene – in one room you’ll find John Talabot, who really needs kein intro (and was responsible for 50%ish of one of my standout sets of the year, as Talaboman). He’ll be joined by the equally awesome Beats in Space master Tim Sweeney, this year celebrating 15 years (15!!) of BIS. These zwei alone would leave us more than satisfied – however joining them in that first room will be Hivern Disc’s Dani R. Baughman and Naive Melodies’ Sara Miller. Follow the pipes deeper, and you’ll find an entire second room of greatness with a takeover from on-point DE label Giegling. Vril, ATEQ, DJ Dustin will all be keeping things delicious (and I wanna say emotional) alongside Cómeme’s Lena Willikens. All in all – this has the potential to be one of the better nights of the year. Our tip – get there early, and wear a bloody warm jacket. Queuing in the near minuses is eure Realität.

IPSE – Bron loves it!
Catering for the dark season, this wochenende Ipse re-opens it’s doors with an indoor reincarnation and one giant party from Fri eve until sometime on Sund. Without knowing the exact details of their makeover for the colder months, what we do know is that Ipse are saying hallo nochmal with a pretty impressive line-up of both much-loved locals and internationals, including – deep breath – Marshall Jefferson (Trax Records), Robert Owens (Trax Records), Achterbahn D’Amour (Frank Music), youANDme (Cocoon), Agaric (Ovum Recordings), Snuffo (live) (Snuff Trax), Joel Alter (Kontra-Musik), Baaz (Slices Of Life – stream his new album over here), Iron Curtis (Retreat), Jona (Planet E), Elie Eidelman (Jack Off Records) und mehhhhhr. It’s an ideal scenario for everyone from those searching for a little Sat nacht dance to those on the hunt for a weekend bender.
