Let your weekend be as trippy as what we prepared for you right on time for Friday night! For the first time Bipølar. member Ones. teamed up with ZPKF to thrill the audience with a live set played at last month’s ARTE Concert. Prepare yourself getting absorbed by this vibrant masterpiece of electronic music published by DUATRECORDS. 🌪
Like many other artists and collectives, we were recently confronted with the ugly face of gentrification itself. The compound which sheltered us throughout the last years providing the free space for our personal and collective growth will be shut down soon – demolished to clear the area quite in step for structural development.
We’re leaving this place with a lot of gratitude, knowing that the surrounding might only be the frame for the picture we aim to create. Well aware that the frame is not the most important, despite it gave a sense of security we’ve lost for now. This insecurity feels really uncomfortable and has the effect that it appears easier to disconnect not involving too much with the process. Our current journey costs energy, time and willpower to keep on the goals we have as a group. The situation carved space for doubt, questioning if our dreams still should be. At the moment apparently easier to follow temporary goals as an individual than investing energy into the seemingly bigger group effort to discuss about possibilities, changes or visiting new spots. These circumstances brought us as Bipølar. into an extremely hurtful situation where everything seemed to fall apart. For real, only few inches separated us from the abyss. Change reveals how fragile and temporary everything in life is, challenging every single one of us to keep the balance between creative and organizational tasks. We’re still looking for possibilities, adapting to new circumstances and ways to cope with the situation. Where will our journey take us now?

Full support to all the secret places, this is where Berlin club culture has its roots. It means a lot to me to be allowed to bring my energy to this magical venue – precisely because we don’t know how long this place will exist anymore. Always stay real and be aware of your bullshit ☯ For more information about the venue – mail us!

Thank you Leipzig, yet again this gathering was a particularly special one! We’re still overwhelmed by the intimate colloquially shared warm vibe ruling the dancefloor until the very end. Moreover we want to thank elipamanoke e.V. and the whole crew for treating us so well conveying a sense of home. See you soon 🌷
