This is going to be an excellent festival! Exploited label and the Party Arty crew come together on the Alt Stralau island in the middle of Berlin in an old carpet factory to celebrate music, poetry and art. I highly recommend this event, not only because Exploited label boss Shir Khan and Party Arty found Yaneq are two of my oldest Berlin companions and I am really proud what they have achieved. See you there!
That’s the exploited artists and a glimpse at what their parties look like:

Yesterday, Google opened their brand new Berlin office and invited a lot of people to take a look at their rooms, have some drinks and mingle. Of course, it wouldn’t be Google without some special features and activities. Cookies provided the food and drinks and all of that was not only vegetarian but also very colorful, green, yellow, blue and red cocktails illustrated the Google colors. The evening started with a hangout between Philip Schindler, Google VP Northern and Central Europe and politicians with a web affinity like Jimmy Schultz and Halina Wawziniak broadcasted to big screens throughout the office. The Tiefschwarz DJs took over and it turned into a very cosy office party with many, many people. In other words: it was packed. Read more →
Es ist mal wieder Zeit auszugehen. Wir haben lange genug mit Bier in der Hand am Straßenrand gestanden oder auf Dachterassen gechillt. Es wird Herbst und auch wenn es noch warm scheint, bald ist es Zeit für den dunklen, warmen Club.
Nächsten Samstag sind zwei Veranstaltungen, die ich hier empfehlen möchte: Eins meiner Lieblingslabels, Gomma, macht eine Party im Flamingo. Und meine Freunde von I Heart Berlin feiern ihr Fünfjähriges im Naherholung Sternchen. Sind beide nicht weit weg voneinander, man kann also hoppen!
