In July 2008 the first SUB:STANCE party was held at Berghain. Everyone was nervous. It was a Dubstep party, and Dubstep parties didn’t happen at Berghain. On the lineup were some of the most forward-thinking artists pushing bass frequencies at that time (as well as Scuba): Mala, Shackleton, Appleblim, Distance and T++. But no-one knew if

(press text) The loss of MTV and its formatted structures as a central display was maybe after all blessing for the music video. It is as vivid as ever and shows great flexibility in developing new forms and experimenting with new aesthetics and topics. The presentation will explore some of these developments – and, of course, many video
The news struck us like lightning: GEMA, the German performing right society for music, recently announced a new accounting system to become effective by 2013 which will ruin many clubs by horrendous increase in charges. Yesterday, a crowd of music lovers gathered for a rally to stop this proposal. We paid it a visit.
Remember that time when a bass blasting tank was rolling down through Kreuzberg? Eclectic and eccentric music is our thing, especially during the summer. I would say we need even more of these spontaneous raves. This one was definitely standing out of the usual events, aiming to “take over Kreuzberg in a friendly way”. I guess it can’t get
Guys, I know — long time no see — but we’re currently very busy doing “stuff”, and you’ll be delighted to see the results of our hard work (or maybe not because we might just drop dead from exhaustion in the meantime, but whatever). I’ll try and use the silence as a means to promote some of the stuff we’re doing

There were many, many complications on our way to Berlin Festival. We were disappointed a couple of times by the marketeers of the Festival and by how they treated us (and our winners). But I can’t say we didn’t have a good time: the acts were incredible, the sound was good (most of the time), the location, Tempelhof
