Playlist of the Week: Berlin Original Mix
Translation by:Lilian Pithan
To the rest of the world, Berlin means electronic music, techno and house. Or maybe just parties in general? In Berlin slang, however, you don't "party", but "celebrate". No matter where, what and for how long - the most important thing is the right music. Cafébabel Berlin presents some well known legends, a few secret stars and the unpolished underground.
Because Berlin can be posh, too - against all myths and legends. Dapayk & Padberg, Smoke, 2013.
What would describe Berlin better than electronics, beats and foreign sounds? Aantigen, Dancefloor Meditation (Original Mix), 2014.
Although the Blood Red Shoes hail from Brighton, they have recently developed a striking Berlin obsession. The Blood Red Shoes, An Animal, 2014.
In Berlin, you won't get around Moderat - and that for a reason. Moderat, Bad Kingdom, 2013.
Because in Berlin remixes are almost as important as original tracks. Marcel Dettmann, Moderat/Bad Kingdom remix, 2013.
Fancy something catchier? The Notwist are the perfect proof for the fact that Bavarians can play a lot more than bagpipes. The Notwist, Kong, 2014.
Mind Against are originally from Italy, but have made Berlin their musical second home. Mind Against, Atlant (original mix), 2013.
Ever heard of gentrification? The musicians of the TuneUp Collective have been jamming against real estate exploitation for quite a while now. TuneUp, Kapitalisten und Konsorten, 2009.
Berlin has everything - even gipsy blues. Diving for Sunken Treasure, Stormy Sea, 2013.
Grey skies? No reason to cancel a rooftop party in Berlin. Jan Blomqvist, Something Says, 2012.
