A weekend of STORIES ADVENTURES & MUSIC || MEMENTO STYLE || part 3 of 3

...After delivering the Violets to the front door of Eule's Mercedes truck from prehistoric times - his home - we started the last part of our journey towards Mecca of Music, Berlin; 100+ kilometres to go, only a few hours away from our dinner with our friends. Just in time we arrived at our friends place in Neukölln, one of the most interesting areas of Berlin. @illuminati curating was waiting for me, so I decided to let me friend go and skip dinner myself. Priorities must be set :)

And then! Finally! After the curation, buck-loads of coffee, it was time to head to Tresor. Just in time to hear the second part of Heiko Laux opening set at the Globus floor; Super!

We stayed almost to the absolute end, when remembering correctly, we left around 11 in the morning. Wasn't the plan, but what can you do with such great lineup, super music, with friends not leaving, and a bunch of great new people I got to know, hanging out together, having fun and enjoying the atmosphere, music and all.

For this post I like to bring Mike Dearborn to your attention. This guy is one of the first generation techno producers and DJs. A special guy, if I may say so. In between a lot of other activities in his life, he travels across half the world for a show. Simply amazing how he can combine two worlds. And I feel fortunate to have been able to hear him play again. No recording of the Tresor set, but I share with you a recent recording Mike made and published on his Soundcloud. Certainly a good one as well...

Super! :)

11 am?? god damn!!! You guys are troopers. Listening to the beginning of this SoundCloud set and his techno is way faster than the tech I usually listen to. Now I can see how you guys stayed up til 11 this is full of energy!

I don't know if Mike Dearborn is in America often but I'll remember the name if his name pops up on any club schedules!

Hahaha, 11am is still not that late or early :) Actually Mike Dearborn is from Chicago, so most of the time he is in the USA.

Well that's late as hell for me! I get tired around 2 and bounce usually. Good to know about Mike I'm sure he'll drop by LA (where I'm at) soon

I hope so, Techno is not really a big thing in LA as far as I know. More NYC, or?

It's not nearly as big or as widely accepted as it is in Europe unfortunately. It's still kind of an underground thing, but bigger clubs are starting to feature techno DJs. If you're ever in LA the best club to go to is Sound Nightclub in Hollywood, or Union Nightclub in mid-city. Great techno and tech house DJs frequent there. Saw Chris Liebing for my birthday at Sound and have seen Dubfire and Marbs from Desert Hearts Records at Union.

Ah nice :) BTW, in Europe Techno became to big to my taste, I can still remember when it was underground over here, the 90s where the best of times for clubbing and parties. Cool people, super music. Now I find it much more difficult to hear good techno, so many artists I don't like their music, or the way they play their sets. But, to be honest, still quite a bunch of artists around I do like the music of, so I'm not complaining :)

I never been to LA, so when I get their, I'll for sure need to give those recommendations a go!

What a weekend! :-) never been inside Berghain, maybe one day...

If you like clubbing, and you like hearing music through the best club sound system in the world, and you like to spend time between openminded people, Berghain is a must :)
