#TicketsGiveaway! Berliners grab 2×2 tickets for the next Kompakt Open Air /w. Michael Mayer, Reinhard Voigt, Thomas Fehlmann. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cologne cult institution Kompakt invites you to the traditional spring rave at Else. The label coined the “Sound Of Cologne” with minimal techno in the nineties and is one of the most renowned imprints for qualitative dance music nowadays, according to their motto: “Forward ever, backwards never.”
Denis Stockhausen, resident of the Cologne club Gewölbe, gets the groove going for Thomas Fehlmann’s live set. Almost 40 years in the game, from the avant-garde band Palais Schaumburg to the electronica project The Orb or connecting Berlin with Detroit as a resident at Tresor in the nineties, what the recently released techno record with US-legend Terrence Dixon underlines. With a DJ-set London-based Ańii proves her knack for melodic tech house like on her Kompakt-EP “Korzenie”. Label co-founder Reinhard Voigt plays a live show and figurehead Michael Mayer the last set under the open sky, whose critically acclaimed collaboration-LP “&” is already indispensable to the dancefloors of this world. The hut is occupied by the bustling Berlin DJ Flexonaut, electro punk and Shitkatapult-veteran T. Raumschmiere, who shows his gentle side on his Kompakt-debut “Heimat”, and Terranova aka Fetisch and & Me with witty techno tunes from their new „Cosmo EP“.
Else – An den Treptowers 10, 12435 Berlin
