What’s Up Weekend? 5 – 11 February 2015


We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: winter really is prime time on the Berlin party calendar and this Wochenende is no different, with a stupid amount of choice on Sat (let’s hope the snow eases so we can club-hop mit dem Fahrrad), hours and hours of local live tunes on Thurs and a Kyle Hall  / Wild Oats takeover of Yaam on Fri – to which you could win guest list! It’s undeniably Party Zeit – see you on the dancefloor.

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.


CHESTERS – Everybody loves it!

We’ve been a little light on the live music mentions recently, however we’re back on that Zug this week and particularly getting around this little number at Chesters, presented by Shameless / Limitless and Mansions and Millions. The star of the show is Berlin-based Canadian, Magic Island, who is celebrating the launch of her totally schön Wasted Down EP, released on Mansions and Millions (wrap your ears around the whole thang over here). Keeping Chesters busy from 21:00 until well past your bedtime, she’ll be joined by by Jack Chosef, Lief Hall and Better Person – all doing their live thang – and DJ sets from DJ Deepmoods and Karl Monica. Tickets at the door.

YAAMBron loves it!

Well, this one has vibey written all over it. Drawing inspiration from Detroit party, Fundamentals, this Freitag sees The Ritual return to Yaam to host their own party where anything goes via the first Wild Oats Label Night in Berlin. Along for the ride, will be 1/2 of the Fundamentals team, Wild Oats main man and one of Detroit’s favourite sons Kyle Hall – who needs kein introduction, however for reaffirmation of greatness, head here, here or here. He’ll be joined by London-based, Wild Oats label mate, K15, know for throwing all sorts of musical curveballs, and who also happens to be making his DE debut. Completing the nights vibeyness – The Ritual’s DéDé, who we’re told does a  delicious Mischung of House, Techno, Afrobeat and more. Bitte bitte. On top of all of this, the theme of the night is: no set times, no music policy and no dress code. Which sounds kinda brilliant to us. Let the music do it’s thang. Tickets available in advance via RA, on the door, oder….

://ABOUT BLANKBron loves it!

In August last year we (Bron) experienced the incredible Nachtdigital festival for the first time. Set in a camping ground on a lake, in off-the-beaten-path East-Deutschland (kein Autobahn here Menschen) and with a small but exceptionally well matched house and techno line-up the 2 day festival was nothing short of perfect and I don’t think I’ve quite come down from that buzz since. This Samstag – get a taste for yourself, or for the regulars, re-live 18 (18!) great years of this little piece of paradise via the first Blank Generation party of 2015, Generation Olganitz. The night will feature key Nachtdigital fam steering the tunes and a screening of Escape to Olganitz -a film about this special festival – to start. Kicking off at 21:30, once the film winds up (presumedly around 12), we’ll be treated to sets from Legowelt (live), BarntSteffen Bennemann, Elisabeth, Wilhelm b2b Miami Müller, Resom and Jessamine, with Onetake on nacht-lang ambient tent duties. It’s the closest thing we’ll get to Olganitz for 7 months – this is one to get around.

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.
