Go Ice Skating at Berghain this Winter

Download a free two-hour Panorama Bar mix from nd_baumecker

Nothing brightens midwinter like music. So the warm glow of nd_baumecker’s mixing is something special. The delayed download is out now from Ostgut Ton, the label associated with Berghain and Panorama Bar. The musical climate in which we live can too easily be afflicted with conformity, with genres and trends regimented by algorithms and anxious aspirations of bookers, media, artists … the lot. And with Berghain as the elephant in the middle of Berlin’s scene, that conformity can often be a...

Techno: The Gathering, scene satire fantasy game, keeps getting better

Curse if you must the fact that modern DJing requires managing social media accounts, navigating scenes, understanding the dimensions of cool. But some DJs will mix all those things as adeptly as they do records – and hold up a mirror to the rest of us. Well – or at least Leipzig’s Vincent Neumann has made a killer Magic: The Gathering parody with techno. First things first: let’s here acknowledge that Vincent is a brilliant musical selector, as well as social media satirist. Closing sets at B...

6 DJ sets at LA’s Secret Project music festival you have to see

By Liz Ohanesian II Contributing Writer Set in a warehouse-heavy section of L.A.’s Chinatown, Secret Project is a bit different from your typical music festival.

Sound fluent in a foreign language

If you’ve ever listened to a recording of your own voice and cringed at every “like,” “um,” or “you know,” then it might seem counterintuitive to intentionally pepper your speech with these kinds of filler words in another language. But the truth is that these little hiccups are a universal component of human speech. Some researchers believe filler words make up six to 10 percent of spontaneous speech, so if you want to sound natural in your new language, you should aim to imitate the habits ...

6 lesser-known cities in Europe

S aying yes to Europe’s lesser-traveled cities means saying yes to new experiences — to cycling medieval streets and breathing in the Alps, to getting lost in modern art museums and exploring secret courtyards covered with murals. It’s saying yes to new foods, drinks, and people. It’s saying yes to life. From Marseille to Leipzig, these cities don’t need to be compared to their capital counterparts. They’ve all got unique things going, and here’s what makes them worth the trip — from anywhere....

10 German Words You Don’t Want to Know

illustrations: Berk Karaoglu It seems to be true for most relationships that after three years you get to notice things about your loved one that you’re just not very much into. And as I find, it’s no different after you’ve lived in a country for this period of time. Germany’s love for rules becomes apparent once you arrive at the airport and notice the line you’re supposed to stand behind while waiting for your suitcase to show up. Once you leave the airport, it may gradually start to dawn on...

Josefine Aspvik’s Witty Illustrations of the Berlin Techno Scene

Partying in Berlin is a whole thing. The ritual of preparing yourself for a long weekend of non-stop techno has its own steps and rules. For the techno lovers and night creatures, it’s like a sacred ceremony of the modern days. It takes time and money that not all Berliners can’t really afford to spend. But in the techno tribe, too much is never enough. They have consecrated themselves to the Club God and they are ready to give it all. For some people it seems almost impossible to get out of the...

The Berlin Family Next Door – Depending on your Neighborhood

Fierce Makeup Looks Inspired by Berlins most Iconic Clubs

I know that Berliners don’t like to try hard when it comes to their party attire. It is sort of Berlin-cool to not care much! But for me, it is a lot of fun to create a special alter ego at night. When I first started to explore Berlin’s nightlife, I used to cluelessly ask around “What makeup do people wear at Berghain?” or “Is there a dress code at Kater Blau?”. I had absolutely no idea and felt a bit lost. So, inspired by what I have seen in Berlin’s club scene, this little guide hopes to i...

Forget vinyl: here’s a DJ rig with two Amiga 1200 PCs

Computers will never die. Now they’re even old enough to be retro. So watch a DJ rig that combines two Commodore Amigas for MOD DJing, thanks to recent software. “The kids are coming up from behind. I’m losing my edge. I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought Amigas.” The beauty of this approach is, those Amigas play MOD files – tracker-based music sequences with elaborate, hyperactive sounds from the golden age of video game composition and chip music. And just as...

Go inside Berlin’s synth heaven – and one of its top modular makers

Electronic music is understood by the general public mostly through artists – tech is just something in the background with knobs. But there’s more to the story than that. And while it’s certainly well known in synth loving circles, Berlin has accordingly been techno capital and club capital, but is finally getting recognition as a mecca for technology. These two films take you inside one retailer and one manufacturer that have each championed the return to boutique sonic electronics, to patc...

Pulsating colors and geometries animate Barker’s latest: interview

Break out of the drab and the grime and the grind: the latest from Berghain resident Barker is about colors and freedom, with a hypnotic, playful video to match. We talk to the artists. Presumably, Berlin techno club Berghain and its label Ostgut Ton are associated with bright colors much in the way that the capital of Germany is associated with ocean beaches or country and western music. But Sam Barker’s new EP – which we’ll go into in a separate CDM story – actually fits perfectly, if you op...

A Death in Berlin: Deafening Silence After Overdose at Berghain

Hugo rattled Berghain’s enormous system, talked to us about sound

What do you do when faced with a sound system associated with a very particular techno sound? One answer: push the speakers until they scream, in a good way. That’s what Hugo Esquinca did last month at CTM Festival – okay, under the watchful eyes of one of the club’s technicians. (That tech seemed happy with the results; I saw him leap over to Hugo after the show, grinning.) It’s just another creative sound art experiment from Hugo and fits perfectly with the ethos of the collective he’s part...

After Hours: Inside Berlin’s Techno Scene of the 2000’s

The web series “After Hours” might not be news to some of you. Actually, the documentary about Berlin’s notorious techno scene already premiered in 2009 on the web portal “3min.de”. However, when the streaming service was discontinued “After Hours” disappeared in internet limbo. Gladly, we can report that you can now watch all 12 episodes right here… A lot has changed since 2009. Word has spread and Berlin is considered techno capital of the world. Clubs and parties in Berlin might still con...

Staying in Love with Berlin

photo: Mike Kotsch You fell in love with Berlin, the vibrant party location that sometimes forgets it’s supposed to be a capital and acts like a huge open air techno festival instead. It felt good, so you thought you’d stay, taking your relationship with Berlin to the next level – calling it your home. But every single commitment drags along its gnarly twin – monotony. Now that you’ve dropped your anchor here, that morning glimpse of the Fernsehturm on your daily commute may not feel quite...

Berlin’s Iconic Nightlife Illustrated by Virginie Kypriotis

We have encountered many memorable illustrations of our favorite places in Berlin. Of our go-to clubs, our favorite freaky Berlin people and Berlin’s eclectic nightlife, but we have never seen an illustrator capturing the mental showdown of it all. The meta-level of what is playing out in our minds, when we go party in all of these places, with all those weird-ass freaky people we love so much, living it all up under one sweaty roof. That’s why we were in awe, laying eyes upon Virginie Kypriotis...

Miami-born Uchi is a fresh face as LA collective BL_K NOISE meet up with Berlin’s Raster – and that’s a perfect time to catch up with her and reflect. Dive in, commit. It’s that moment when the mixer fader is up and you start your live set, the let’s-screw-up-our-lives risk-taking bigger moments we make sometimes for musical passion. It’s the willingness to screw up live and screw up life, maybe. That sums up why a lot of us are here as well as anything. And so that makes Uchi’s approach refr...
