Sunday Adventure Club - Berlin

Just to keep things poppin along here is what I wrote about last Sunday with a few amendments.

We missed Cassy ­čÖü Got there in time for last hour of luciano in the sun – lots of ‘his’ set records, freaks come out, god made me funky, the thrill me thing he played at Fabric (which I missed) again. Maybe 1000 people getting into it. Wink played next but about 20 min in massive rain came down and everyone hid under umbrellas apart from mentallists up the front. I didn’t really get into it, seemed like the wrong kind of music for that part of the day.. The sun came back out and he started playing vocal samples of the blaze ‘lovelee dae’ tune.. Then Matthew Dear’s big band played, I am ashamed to say I actually skipped out on this and checked out Karotte who Matt said was like Germany’s Sam Hill, but for whatever reason I had a lot of fun for his set. Came back outside and Hawtin was playing, he was a bit better than in Detroit, by this point had met up w/ simon and all his mates so there were a lot of us having fun.. Couldn’t tell you any of the records he played apart from finishing his set with re-edit of Michael Jacksons’ ‘Don’t stop till you get enough’ and ‘billie jean’..
Things started to get pretty confusing by now, the main area shut down after Hawtin and we all moved inside to see Guido Schneider and Steve Bug.. But it looked like Bug didn’t play and Josh Wink played again! Much more housey this time, with Marshall Jefferson -‘move your body’ (crucial ‘key tech’ track paul!) and Dave Clark (i think it was red 2??) coming through!.. Then Loco Dice who seemed to be playing btb with Luciano(!) although i was somewhere else by this point and couldn’t say for sure what was happening.

About 3.30 things hit a complete wall with the twin Bore-o-thons of Heartthrob live and troy pierce (Who sounded like being stuck in a satanic washing machine, but less awesome than that description seems). I was done. we’d been there 14 hours by this point. Pacou Osuna in the other room was actually sounding cool but I was finished, Mike had lost his coat, Silke was tired, and Justin was looking for red wine to get him to sleep! so we left. 5 min before leaving we actually found a third room but I didn’t see anything there.

Overall, awesome times, and now I want to come back to Berlin again for longer. Thanks to Simon, Nat, Matt and the friendly adventurers of Berlin.

I am in Tokyo now and have been introduced to a Jamaican resturant that does jerk chicken and has Jamaican dancehall radio live off the net coming through the soundsystem. Haven’t done any musical stuff yet but next weekend Guido Schneider and Johnny D play Womb.. it would be remiss of me not to pop along.

    Gutting about missing Cassy she’s high on my list of DJs to see. I think that re-edit of “Billie Jean” might be the Mihalis Safras edit http://www.juno.co.uk/ppps/products/315128-01.htm . I really need to make it over to Berlin soon theres no excuse either as its only 2hrs away by plane.

    Cassy is definitely high up on my list as well – that ibiza voice podcast of hers is proper good.

    Benny……does this mean you missed the Yellow club closing in Tokyo?

  • Mick said:

    We saw Cassy at DEMF. She only played records. She fucken ruled.

  • websta said:

    i will be seeing Cassy at panorama bar

    if its still open when i go there…..

  • Benny said:

    Yeah, hopefully she will make it to Tokyo sometime! Assuming I manage to stay here..

    Yes Paul, I wussed out of admitting it to you before. I am worried you might come over here and kill me. Blame my friend, we got drunk on Friday and during this time he had me convinced the gig was the following night.

    I am FOCUSED on Johnny D and Guido for this Sat. It is at Womb I believe.

  • The Ninja said:

    Benny……you are now on the list.
