Press Info:
After a relatively short spring break it is time to get things flowing again for our 2nd show in 2017. Our upcoming mid-spring session will of course be held at our infamous venue: Humboldthain Club Berlin. Since, Cause Of Effect is rooted to origins and has been building its foundation upon oldschool vibes, we have yet again put together “the real deal”. With a perfectly balanced and a greatly harmonious selection of reformed, local artists, it is time to unleash something magnificent on May 5th. Prepare yourselves for a vibrant show emitting a diverse selection of freshly spirited, dynamic, uncompromising and original sound!

Lockertmatik
Lockertmatik aka Stephan S. was born 1979 in Dresden and raised in the district of Striesen. Inspired by Electronic Body Music, Acid and early 1990s Detroit Techno and the famous east german broadcast DT64 (with it’s radio shows Dance Hall or Partyzone) Stephan began to buy records. And listen! First groundbreaking record was the X-101 album on Tresor Records by UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE. Late 1992, early 1993 he began to spin in the chillout at various larger venues. 1993 he heard of the Hard Wax in Berlin and ordered his first stuff there and started collecting records. In 1995 he started deejaying at the then famous Plastic Phreak venues and eventually became a resident and crew member. First experiences with work in record stores in Dresden were Humpty Records (1998) and later HARDWAX Dresden. His releases under his moniker Kryptic Universe so far came out on Mord Records, MDR Official, Phonocake, Psycho Thrill, Sleepy City, shtum, melted recordingss, and Wolfskuil Ltd. In 2011 he started his own label with two friends. It is an honour to have him with us this time!

Victor & Forsberg
Furthermore, we’ve got two local youngsters up in our boat! Two Berlin based vinyl purists which have gained a vast majority of DJ experience the last years. Victor is the founder and owner of the fresh hearted label MAGIC POWER. His vinyl sets are characterized by dynamic acid, breath-taking electro and banging basement cuts, all beyond 135 bpm. He has played at several, notorious festivals in Germany and at Berlin based clubs such as Griessmuehle or ://about party for example. With him standing is Forsberg. A DJ and producer from Berlin, who works at the popular and well-known Berlin based Spacehall Recordstore. Since he has played at Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL) at the beginning of 2017 things are musically turning out well for him. He and Victor will be playing a luscious b2b set. We are highly excited what our young fellows have up in their sleeves for us!

ReVenant
For the first time in the history of Cause Of Effect rocklike resident ReVenant will be opening out the night with a special set for us. Since, he usually pounds Detroit inspired material beyond 138bpm, it is time for him to try out something new. He will definitely create the perfect entry level euphoria to start off the night, by playing hit inspired tunes. “Pumping UK house and retro techno classics all up in ya face!”

Vælentin
Closing duty belongs to resident Vælentin. As an open minded music/vinyl lover he will always bring up multifarious influences to his mixes. Never sounding the same. We can expect straight stuff this time! 90’s informed. Detroit, breaks n’ electro. Dance or die.

Deniz Arslan
Deniz (straight outta Münster) is a young Berlin based vinyl DJ and producer who has come around quite a bit so far! He plays on a national basis. Additionally he developed the party series Mezzo which took place at Der Stur in his hometown Münster. Chased by new inspiration he moved to Berlin and started the Label Small Talk together with good friends. Expect house & disco vibes in its purest form from a guy that definitely loves what he’s doing.

TheStain
Also on the upstairs Floor we’ve got our new comer TheStain aka. Fleck from PHC (Potsdam). He will be heating up the dancefloor for the first hours of the night with some great vinyl skills! Housemusic as well as funk can be expected.

Press Info:
After a long-term break over Christmas and New Year’s Eve we are truely ecstatic to announce our comeback! For the first show in 2017, taking place at our beloved venue Humboldthain Club, we have planned something special, maybe even something unexpected. Cause Of Effect #3 will not only be embracing a variety of Dj Set performances, it will now for the first time also consist of a powerful Live Performance by our exclusive Vault Series artist: Sawlin. This upcoming night will for sure push borders of stimulation. Prepare yourselves for an electrifying show emitting a diverse selection of freshly spirited, dynamic, uncompromising and original sound!

Sawlin
The secretive and mystical Berlin based artist has been enriching the underground scene for at least 10 years now. With a raw, industutrial, unique and experimental approach to electronic music he has been highly influential for many DJ’s and Live acts all around the world. With him strictly calling himself a Live Act, not a DJ, it is clear how uncompromising his interpretation of techno is. Without the influence of Sawlin’s impeccable style, sound, ideas and perception, the well know, artistically serious techno label “Vault Series” (founded by Subjected), might not have been established or established with purpose. Sawlin, Subjected and Mørbeck all connect beneath the same roof. They meet regularly to share ideas, to support each other and undoubtedly to produce music. Furthermore, they make up a harmonious unity of friendship! Sawlin is regularly releasing on labels such as: VAULT SERIES (Germany), ARTS (Italy), Electric Deluxe (Netherlands), ANN AIMEE (Netherlands), 10 LABEL (Japan), Sleaze Records (UK), Cocoon (Germany) and Technorama Records (France). We are overly thrilled to see how he injects his power to the dancefloor!

Manuel Münster
Manuel made his move to the German capital in 2008. His musical socialization was rooted in Hardcore Punk and Metal, but attending a techno party shortly after having arrived in Berlin has opened up a musical world to him that was beyond his perception up until that point. Taking advantage of Berlin’s countless record stores dedicated to electronic music, he quickly assembled a respectable collection of 12″s and eventually decided to give DJing a try himself. Making his way from playing small bars and parties, he became a regular DJ at Tresor from 2011 on. In 2013 he further shapened his musical profile with putting on his own club nights called Escapism in various locations throughout the city. The record label of the same name emerged in 2016 with the help of a friend, giving friends and artists who have played the party a plattform to release their music. Staying true to Techno’s political dimension, Manuel’s DJ-sets are reflecting his perception of the world surrounding him. While mostly bleak and repetitive, groove is always the key element. It’s this focus that allows him to challenge audiences without ever losing touch. We are happy to have him with us!

Tham
Tham is a young passionate techno-DJ and producer from Berlin, where he got in touch with different styles of electronic music. He started his career 1 year ago, when he and his partner Acierate founded SYNOID, which is an event series at Griessmuehle known for outstanding line-ups and over-length parties. His sets leap from deep, atmospheric tunes up to heavy oldschool acid, EBM or dark industrial sound textures. He tries to combine a lot of techno genres to compose one powerful, energetic mix. We are excited what he will unleash for us on our first show!

STS200
The night of course, will be hosted by our solid residents: Vælentin & ReVenant. For the first time since the establishment of Cause Of Effect, they will merge together to form one sleek entity: STS200. Their set will showcase a Detroit inspired approach embracing an edgy, wild and aggressive style. Prepare yourselves for a magnificent compilation unfolding rhythmic/funky grooves, driving techno cuts and banging basement beats with old-school tendencies. It’ll definately be one bumpy electronic ride! Enough said.

Opål
For the first C.O.E Edition we are very happy to have Opål aka. Dan Divinium on the stage!

His career started off last year where he contributed in building up the well-known “Stützpunkt” collective from Berlin. Eventually he quit, in order to extensively focus on producing. With his own puristic, duby, industrial and experimental style he managed to successfully release on labels such as ARTS and Voxnox Berlin. Still being young aged he can definitely be seen as a highly talented New-Comer in this scene. Opål has been playing in many infamous clubs in Berlin such as Tresor, Arena or Kosmonaut. Furthermore, his international status has been growing considerably. We are excited what he will unleash for us on our first show!
