Info (German only):
Nach dem erfolgreichen Debüt am 1. November kehrt Escapism in die Loftus Hall zurück. Als Headliner konnten wir dieses Mal Ventress verpflichten. Er betreibt nicht nur gemeinsam mit Shifted das Label Avian, das zeitgemäßen seriösen Techno quasi verkörpert, sondern ist auch als Produzent aktiv. Neben seiner Debut-EP auf Avian und “Typhon” auf Edit-Select veröffentlicht er unter seinem Alias “Worn” experimentelleren Techno. Sehr empfehlenswert zum aufwärmen für die Nacht: sein Podcast für Smoke Machine.
Das Warm-Up wird von Subkutan übernommen. In seiner Wahlheimat Leipzig zeichnet er sich mitverantwortlich für das Clubprojekt “Institut für Zukunft”, ist aber durch seine zahlreichen Auftritte im ://about blank und bei der Grounded Theory auch in Berlin kein Unbekannter.
Wie schon bei der Premiere wird auch dieses Mal wieder Escapism-Resident Manuel Münster den Abend ausklingen lassen. Seit 2009 in Berlin als Techno-DJ aktiv und ab 2011 mit regelmäßigen Auftritten im Tresor, konzentriert er sich nun mit Escapism auf die deeperen Spielarten des Techno.
Moments is back with friends and residents celebrating the release of the frist “Moments EP”.
The guys I/Y who are responsible for the organistation of the Moments event series throughout Berlin, also run their own label with already three great records, two of them feature tracks by themselves (including a solo track by Yac).
The other one is the highly acclaimed EP “And The Flying Saucer” by Blind Observatory who also just played this first gig at Berlin’s well-known techno universe Berghain.
Following these 3 great 12 inches the team is now releasing an EP celebrating their collaboration with all the artists who performed and adhered to the Moment’s concept in the last few years.
Releasing music from everyone was impossible, but the 4 tracks produced by Voiski, Blind Observatory, Schloss Mirabell, and I/Y give a solid idea of what Moments is about.
Electric Deluxe celebrates 6 Birthday Party
26th April 2014
Maassilo, Rotterdam (Netherlands)
Line-up & Time Table:
Serge & Gerd b2b
about 25 EUR early bird presale, ….
OK EDLX-er’s, you know the drill by now. April is double birthday time — for us and the whole of Holland. On Saturday the 26th it’s Kings Day, meaning 24 hours of parties and more. But there’s just one you need to concern yourself with come nightfall and that’s our sixth anniversary take-over at Maasilo, Rotterdam. Last year we shared the reins with local promoters Nachtduik to deliver a 40-name strong total blow-out. This year we’re going for less is more, calling on some of the finest names in techno today to help our chief toast another year.
First up is someone who needs little introduction by now: the Berghain resident who never ceases to entertain, Ben Klock. There really is nothing quite like a session from this Berlin institution. He’s joined by one of the UK’s industrial revolutionists, Blawan. This hardworking Brit has continued to impress both on and off the decks with his slew of heavy-hitting productions solo and in more analogue-based forays as Karenn with partner Pariah. Stepping out as Trade last year with Surgeon was the proverbial icing on the cake. We are especially excited to welcome back Blawan to the EDP fold.
DVS1 is another in need of few words. Emphatic collector, encyclopaedic knowledge and an enthusiastic flair makes his name on any line up an instant gratification. Back to Berlin, 2013 was an exceptional time for Rodhad. It was the year Dystopian co-founder emerged from the shadows and assert his heady, slow-burn style on the rest of the world. One of 2013′s most promising upstarts, and a real treat behind the decks. Like Rodhad, Subjected has been building up a loyal fan base by clandestine means. Distinct and unique, his Vault Series vehicle is deeply respected amongst underground tiers. In October he joined the EDLX roster with ‘Foreign Awake’ — the first of two EP’s produced with Vault partner Sawlin. He’s our honorary family member tonight, and what a fantastic addition to the line up.
Last, but by no means least, Rotterdam stalwarts Serg and Gerd complete the bill. These two esteemed label heads — from Clone and Fortek, of course — will be going in back to back, with Speedy J taking the night to its inevitable conclusion. All this in one of the most exciting venues Rotterdam has to offer. What more could you possibly want? See you on the floor party people!
regular bus tour, walking tour or visit of the Hansa Studio in Berlin
This guy offers several ways to discover music within Berlin. So he takes you on ride with a bus through Berlin’s Rock and Pop Music History. Or he visits the famous Hansa Studio with you and tells you interesting and funny stories about Depeche Mode, David Bowie nd other artists during their recording sessions at Hansa Studio Berlin. Or finally you can do a musical walk through Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte districts inlcuding the visit of the Ramones Museum.
All tours are interesting and guided by a very nice guy. We can highly recommend it – we have attended it several times!!!
