BERGHAIN HOSTS LIMITED - CAPACITY "SOUND EXHIBITION"
The Berlin club announced in March that they would be suspending “self-produced” events taking place, including Panoramabar and Säule, until 20th April surrounding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). While the pandemic escalated, Berghain’s doors remained closed to the public, but have now re-opened for limited-capacity exhibitions. The first show, titled Eleven songs — Hall at Berghain, is the brainchild of artistic duo Sam Auinger and Hannes Strobl. Remaining at Berghain until the 2nd August, the sound installation has been designed to work its way through the vast empty chambers of Berghain, with curators telling visitors “you listen, you experience, you can close your eyes or leave them open and follow the sound across the room.” In May, booking agencies in Berlin came together to launch a new advocacy initiative, representing live acts and DJs amid the coronavirus pandemic. More recently, the German governemnt announced they had extended the large events ban until at least October.

#EPOFTHEWEEK SHINE T I M E N G E L H A R D T
Big things are cooking but for now a little teaser from Tim Engelhardts single ‘Shine’, ahead of his album release later in 2020. The first course in the upcoming buffet of musical delights is ‘Idiosynkrasia’, which booms, shaking the room with its warped, whomping big rig vibes. Following with the theme: ‘Shine’ keeps it analogue in a digital world. This cut clambers out of dark spacey realms into a light-filled world of infectious, anthemic sound. Going from Tim’s past work and his latest offering this is essential listening, dancing or where ever you may have the audio experience. DRW 10/10.

Their 3rd remix to date and this time courtesy of their own independent record label, couped up in their studio somewhere unknown its exciting to see what comes out of the Rufus Du Sol camp next up. DRW 10/10

G.O.T ACTORS DIRECT AND STAR IN MADEON'S "MIRACLE" MUSIC VIDEO Maisie Williams and Lena Heady, who played Aria Stark and Cersei Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones series, have come together once again for French producer Madeon’s latest music video. The visuals are directed by Heady and star Williams, with Madeon providing a backstory for the project on the Youtube page. “A few months ago, while I was on tour, Lena Headey reached out about making a video for Miracle,” Madeon said. “Maisie Williams quickly joined (they had both met on the set of Game of Thrones). Her vision was so clear, it was very different from the way I’ve illustrated the universe of “Good Faith” up to that point but that’s what made the idea so fascinating, it’s a different interpretation. They focused on the drama of the music and made a beautiful video. I’m very honored that my music inspired this!”

SUZANNE ELLOCAL SPOTLIGHT Hailing from Semarang and almost a decade of experience mastering her craft it’s no mistake that Sunzanne has landed herself a residency at one or Bali’s most prestigious and established beach clubs. Coming thru the ranks via a competitive hunger to succeed and willing to take risks is not the fairy tale ending most DJs hope for but a position in the Bali music industry that all budding DJs should take note of. Female DJ who can play actually in any genres that venue needed. Love to play chill and 80s 90s song, especially for the pool cliff at karma. All the DJ has the same skill and can play in any style, but sometimes the big differents are (as a DJ) how we can motivate our self to don’t stop being DJ and make some music, always be a hard worker, humble and stay fool.
