Erobique pays his tribute to Ritter Butzke Do you like disco? Do you like house music? Are you in Berlin this weekend? Are you free this Saturday night? Then you might want to visit Ritter Butzke in Kreuzburg to see Prince Erobique who will be bridling his party pony at the great Butzke gardens.

Erobique aka Carsten Meyer, the Munsterlandic hailing, Hanseatic living emperor of live disco editing, comes all the way from the shires of Hamburg to Germany’s capital, paying the rank and file citizens of Berlin a tribute from his treasure chest of live disco pearls and other edited jewellery. Joking aside: there’s probably no other musician in Germany that can keep the balance between a dj and live set as well as entertainment such as Erobique does. Check out this live recording of Erobique covering Marshall Jefferson’s club anthem ‘Move Your Body‘:

And then there’s his take on Joe? Smooth‘s ‘Promised Land‘:

Brilliant! Besides one of Erobique’s rare shows, Ritter Butzke will be opening its doors for live sets by Odessa and The Oakwoods and dj sets by Matt John, Empro, Martin Dawson, Shir Khan, Cocolores (all three of them Exploited Records), and many more.
