At Home With: Junction 2: Connections - Berlin RecapFri 29th Jan
In the last of our 3 part recap, we look back at the Berlin leg of Junction 2: Connections.
From the fall of the Wall until the present day, electronic music and its scene full of alternative-thinkers and creatives have thrived in this urban landscape. For Junction 2: Connections we streamed from one of the most striking features of the city’s skyline; the TV Tower. Representing the techno capital were Ben Klock, Dixon, Rødhåd, LSDXOXO and Terr.
Berlin lays claim to producing a lineage of international underground talent and the latest to blossom out of this hotspot is Terr. A Clash Lion label boss and lover of dark disco grooves, she kicked off the stream with a true statement mix.
Taking over from Terr was long-time Junction 2 favourite and one of Berlin’s most touted underground figures, Dixon. The Innervisions mastermind delivered an intricately woven exploration of otherworldly interstellar grooves.
From the constellations to the deep, dark, dubby depths of techno, next up in the Berlin showcase was the Dystopian king himself, Rødhåd.
Continuing the onslaught was trailblazing newcomer, LSDXOXO. Provocative, explicit and unequivocally captivating, the New Yorker has made Berlin his home and it’s easy to see why, delivering a relentless barrage of rapidfire techno and industrial laced club cuts.
The close out of the Berlin stage came from one of the city’s true originals, Ben Klock. An artist synonymous with the techno institution of Berghain, fabled for his afterhours mischief and undwindling vision. A distinguished perfectionist and a master of the stripped back groove. The Klockworks boss provided the fireworks with another stunning display.
