Arena Club, Berlin (Germany)
After some months of silence we are starting the new year right by hitting Arena Club again with a lineup as slick as always.
Hailing from a region known for its basketball and corn, the emergence of an artist from Indiana such as Kyle Geiger is marked as seldom at best. He certainly is no stranger to the international techno arena, with releases on heavy hitter labels such as Drumcode, Droid or his own label Cubera.
Originally inspired by the harder, percussive stylings of techno, Kyle has witnessed the evolution of the genre as it morphed into a more accessible, groove based sound. Still loving the energy and power of the more straight forward side of techno while embracing the genre’s changes, Kyle has refined his productions and DJ sets into what very well may be a new breed of soundscapes that pushes things forward for the next generation of techno to come. We are very happy that he will be with us for his one.
The releases of Berlin-based Emmanuel have left many people in awe. His unique production style has bewitched the heavyweights of contemporary techno and house, garnering full support across the scene. Releasing on labels including Deeply Rooted House or Enemy Records as well as his own label ARTS, Emmanuel has rapidly become a regular on the European techno circuit, with his uncompromising style that he is now synonymous with through his productions and performances alike. In his DJ sets he is able to combine many different aspects of techno music and put them together to create an astonishing mix. It makes us excited to anticipate what he has in store for us.
Always a major highlight at our parties, Chami has become quite the talk of the town. The strong and determined vinyl only sets of our Moroccan resident have become an illustration of the Stützpunkt series, purely creating an exceptional atmosphere. For this installment he will play his first closing set for us, as he gives us another reason to celebrate – it is his birthday weekend. Let us honor this special occasion by dancing until the very end of Chamis extravaganza.
Our cherished duo Background Radiation will complete this nights lineup. This once again highly anticipated DJ set will feature the golden pieces of their vinyl selection and you can be sure that they will present the right spirit at the right time. If you have been following us for a while you know that they will definitely not disappoint.
We are excited for another big one with you and we hope you are as well. Don’t forget to bring the heat to make this cold January night a hot one!
