EB Exclusive: Bar25 – Tage außerhalb der Zeit

EB Exclusive: Bar25 - Tage außerhalb der Zeit Places like Bar25 have been an essential part of Berlin culture. While GEMA‘s greed may be affecting large nightclubs, smaller and more underground clubs make up the backbone of Germany’s sexy capital city. But Bar25 was more than just a club — it was a restaurant, spa, relaxation spot, and creative focus for so many different individuals. Sadly, Bar25 closed their doors in late 2010; however, there’s still a chance to relive some of the glories of late nights and sweaty dance parties overlooking the Spree river. The anticipated documentary Bar25 was released in May 2012 to Germany’s independent cinemas and within eleven weeks, drew over 20,000 audience members. Whether you were there or just wish you were, it’s a wonderful look at an integral slice of Berlin.

This exclusive mix, done for Electronic Beats Radio, features a taste of what you might have heard in the well-missed venue. Stream it below, remember (if you ever forgot) what a wonderful and creative place Berlin is to allow something so DIY to blossom, and then go out and make something wonderful of your own.

The Radio Sessions – Electronic Beats On Air with Chymera on FluxFM

Brenden Gregoriy seems to have a thing for water. As his production alter-ego Chymera, he’s come back to this theme again and again, blending organic and synthetic sounds on tracks like ‘The Drop’, ‘Swim Away’ and ‘Midnight At The Aquarium’. “‘Water’ you talking about” we said to him before referencing #seapunk and dying our hair aquamarine. This might not have had much of an effect (we’ll be checking his twitter later to see) but he did have plenty to say about his move from Ireland to Barcelona, as well as his current home in Berlin and his new album Death By Misadventure. Dive in and find out more!

You can listen to the whole radio show with Chymera on Thursday, July 5th via FluxFM, starting at 10pm (GMT+1) – tune into FluxFM via terrestrial radio or via live stream (worldwide).

A rerun of the show’s first hour will be available on demand on FluxFM’s website from Friday, July 6th, with the DJ mix following a couple of days later on ElectronicBeats.net. The Radio Sessions is a weekly show so make sure to tune in next week!

The Radio Sessions – Electronic Beats On Air with Motor on FluxFM

As we learned in our recent interview with Motor frontman Bryan Black, the guest vocalists on his latest album Man Made Machine (including Depeche Mode‘s Martin Gore and Nitzer Ebb‘s Douglas J. McCarthy) were something of a happy accident.

It’s no accident, though, that Black landed on this week’s EB Radio show! Join us for a discussion on the new album, his friendship with Depeche Mode, his alternate work as Black Asteroid, and plenty of classic tunes from the likes of DAF, Tones On Tail, and David Bowie.

You can listen to the whole radio show with Motor on Thursday, June 28th via FluxFM, starting at 10pm (GMT+1) – tune into FluxFM via terrestrial radio or via live stream (worldwide).

The Radio Sessions – Electronic Beats On Air with Simian Mobile Disco on FluxFM

A mobile disco?? Who’s the nut who came up with that one?

“What a goof and a doof” you might say about this concept, but then guess you live under a bad-ass rock in the world’s coolest creationist wasteland because we’re definitely down with the kind of mobile disco that’s Darwinian. Simian, that is, as in Simian Mobile Disco. The duo join host Mathias Weck on air to talk about their new album Unpatterns, introduce us to Japanese synth-wizard Tamita, and deliver a never-before heard mix. Probably a bunch more, too, but you’ll never know unless you tune in!

You can listen to the whole radio show with Simian Mobile Disco on Thursday, May 31st via FluxFM, starting at 10pm (GMT+1) – tune into FluxFM via terrestial radio (frequencies in Berlin and other big cities in Germany) or via live stream (worldwide).
