It’s no surprise that the German capital offers a wealth of incredible record labels, DJs, and artists. We feel a bit spoiled here at Beatport Berlin with the amount of great tunes we hear each and every night and can’t help but boast when we get the chance to work together with some of our favorite labels to simply get down and party. Following up our First We Take Berlin event tonight, we’ll be back for round two on Friday evening. This time out, we’re hosting a stage at the gargantuan Berlin Festival event, showcasing some quality underground house and techno with Tiefschwarz’s Souvenir imprint and Bloody Mary’s Dame-Music label, established in 2006 and 2010 respectively. Both stables have a stellar roster of artists, have been releasing serious heaters for years, and represent a strong cross-section of Berlin’s thriving dance music scene.
To say we’re excited about hosting a party with the influential Get Physical Music & Poesie Musik crew would be an understatement. We’re counting down the hours before we open the doors on Thursday night at Arena Club for the First We Take Berlin event, co-hosted by our friends at Traktor. We’ve been big fans of Get Physical Music since the days before Beatport even existed, and we’re super-excited to be partying with them after sharing 10 years in dance music together. The label, established back in 2002, represents a very huge part of the Berlin scene, birthing the sounds of M.A.N.D.Y., Booka Shade, DJ T, and many more. Wankelmut’s newly launched Poesie Musik is set to help move the house and tech-house sound of Berlin even further towards the future.
