Berghain resident Phase Fatale has announced a new album, ‘Scanning Backwards’, which lands on Ostgut Ton in the new year.
Eight tracks will feature on the record, slated to arrive on 24th January 2020. The music itself has been specifically designed for maximum impact on the dancefloor of the legendary Berlin venue, which celebrates its 15th birthday next month. It's the producer's second full-length work.
Berghain has announced a huge line-up for its 15th birthday celebrations.
The party will start at midnight on Saturday 14th December, running through until, as always with Klubnacht, sometime on Monday.
Berghain's 15th birthday will welcome a whopping 24 artists to the hallowed club, including Aurora Halal, Efdemin, Marcel Dettmann, Surgeon, Steffi and a live show from Caterina Barbieri in Halle, the rarely used third space.
A new fragrance based on the scent inside the original Tresor club in Berlin, which closed in 2005 before relocating and reopening in 2007, has been created.
The fragrance will come packaged with the first 300 copies to be sold of a new Russian translation edition of techno history book 'Der Klang Der Familie'. The new edition, which is being released to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, will mark the first time that the book, written by Sven Von Thülen and Felix Denk, has been officially translated to Russian.
CockTail d'Amore will celebrate a decade of parties and releases with a new compilation and a book, due out in December.
The legendary Berlin party and collective, who started life as a DIY party in 2009, moving from clubs to illegal venues across the city, found a more stable home in 2014 at the Griessmuehle club. CockTail d'Amore soon launched a label, releasing EPs from Geist, Powder and Sfire.

As well as Metropol on the cover, the calendar features illustrations of Dschungel, La Belle, Tempodrom and more.

Ableton's LOOP summit has announced the first speakers for its return to Berlin in April 2020. After spending one year in LA, and having an off-year in 2019, the popular creative conference curated by the even more popular makers of Live is upping sticks from Funkhaus and moving to Silent Green Kulturquartier and the adjoining contemporary art spaces Savvy, Ebensperger Rhomberg and Luxoom Lab on April 24th to 26th.
A not-for-profit organisation called the Detroit-Berlin-Connection has set up a petition to lobby for clubs to be able to stay open later than 2am in Detroit.
The current law in the city prohibits people from legally dancing in the city between 2am and 7.30am meaning that clubs are forced to open later and many people are forced to rely on unlicensed parties.
