History is calling for future. As one of the oldest but still existing clubs in Berlin the Suicide Club Berlin designed Berlin’s urban landscape for more than 25 years. They always supported young, talented and different minded artists and as we experienced it, they always shared their knowledge about the club scene rid of competitive thinking. Like it or not / you got it, right? – this club wants our culture to live. So, let’s fight for them! Keep the vibes alive! Don’t forget the future, the future is now!
Finding the balance between taking time for ourselves and giving our best will “KEEP THE VIBES ALIVE”! Let’s fill our local, empty clubs with some hope and show love by supporting them financially. Some clubs have already launched fundraisers on “startnext”, including ://about blank that it’s transporting a defying message for a better future which is our heartfelt desire to save. Remember, the future is now.
Drift away into the cosmic landscape of experimental sounds created by Sabine Hoffmann & Hórnberg through mixing vinyl only. This may be the perfect musical backdrop for this time of solitude whirling you away into another strange world of sound.
There are moments in life that are about coming together to set things in motion and those that are about taking a united stand to contain or stop a movement. The extent of how much we can count on ourselves and our environment shapes the well-being of our earth, our society and the cultural areas we want to live in. The crises on our planet scream at us to slow down, take self-responsibility and refocus on our community spirit. Our chosen community, the club culture of Berlin, relies on our support, too. Every club that closes its doors assumes the necessary responsibility that can only be carried on many shoulders. We can help by signing the petition of Clubcommission Berlin and donate the money we would have spent for partying to upcoming crowdfunds. Please show respect by not going to any club. (The last one is a bitter pill for us all to swallow.) Our heart goes out especially to all owners of endangered clubs, all artists, employees, collectives, bookers, promoters, event managers and everybody that depends on their income.
“Club culture has always had a mantra of ‘Do whatever you want, as long as it’s not hurting others.’ Now is a really good time to wrestle with that a little.” – Kyle Geiger ❤️

“I got under my skin.
This is my moment catched identity.
Blood is thicker than rhythm,
drums are my ecstasy.
You are my skin,
my biggest organ keeping me breathing.
I catch my breath,
hold it in for a second.
My ending, I take it in
to begin to be taken in.
I am my skin,
the pores to my inner sin.
Sin made me a pure creature
and rhythm freed me by it’s very nature.
So, overflow me beauty and find my child.
I am ready to play in the light.
I don’t hide my skin.
The covers gone to reveal what’s within.
Without shame I grow old,
within I’m pure gold.”
