Berlin! 10.02.18 House Is Ok Gemišt Release Party /w. Kornél Kovács & many more at Salon – Zur wilden Renate
It’s the big 5! Berlin – Frankfurt based label House Is OK is celebrating its five-year long presence and has decided to mark that period with something special Label’s story started with a sticker Homeboy printed in his former hometown, Zagreb, saying “House Is OK”. Catchy, right? It became an underground slogan of the local scene. It didn’t take long for people to embrace the idea stating that it’s OK to be into melodic, fresh, groovy yet, at times, a bit awkward dance music.
Just around the same time Homeboy’s Frankfurt based bro’s Oliver Achatz and Janis played with the idea of starting a record label. Guess what the logical choice for the name was? Ten records, dozens of original songs and remixes later House is OK continues to grow. Looking back at the first five years, not only at the music that connected them all but at the bonds that deepened through the production process, House is OK crew wanted to take create a proper reminder and thank the ones supporting them throughout the years. A double 12” pack titled “Gemišt” seemed like a proper way to do that. To celebrate it, the Label invites to a release party on the 10th February at Berlins cult club Wilde Renate.
On the bill, the charming Swede Kornél Kovács, U.S. Discoteer Sleazy McQueen, Robert Johnson resident TCB, DJ Labud from Zagreb who also did design work for the label and the makers Oliver Achatz and Homeboy themselves, while the latter presents his new Project “Longhair” with fellow Renate Resident The Swift.
