FINAL KNALL
Sat 30 December 2017 - 23:59

Leading up to New Year’s Eve, our annual Final Knall party has become a favorite of our Berlin fans and visiting club guests from around the world. Traversable Wormhole is one of two live projects of Adam X and his most popular project to date. After its start in 2009 as a series of anonymously produced ink stamped vinyl that stirred the global techno scene with its mysterious guise, the project quickly received huge support from many of the world’s most renowned techno shops and globally respected DJs. Traversable Wormhole tracks have been remixed by some of the best in the scene and released on Chris Liebing’s imprint CLR and Traversable Wormhole Records. The sound of Traversable Wormhole is a unique sci-fi laden techno with gaps of time, space & bass in between sound & rhythm. A self-confessed Noisician, Paula Temple obliterated 2014 with ‘Deathvox’, her second monumental release for the legendary label R&S. Her debut ‘Colonized’ EP made one of biggest statements in 2013 for uncompromising techno, followed by remixes for avant-electronic acts The Knife, Perera Elsewhere and Planningtorock. Such refreshing high-voltage output has rapidly placed Paula Temple at the forefront of new techno. Ancient Methods was originally an industrial/techno duo of Conrad Protzmann & Michael Wollenhaupt aka Baeks & Trias: now it’s been Trias’ one man project since Baeks’ departure. Both originally integral DJs in the former legendary Tresor Headquarters team, today Ancient Methods takes this genre and drives you into its vortex right on the dancefloor. Our skilled techno resident Mischa provides a formidable support set. In Globus: New Yorker Gunnar Haslam is a rare talent with a unique intellect. Since this first release, he’s been highly prolific, putting his career as a physicist on the back burner while going deeper into the world of synths and maintaining a steady outpouring of music spanning acid, techno, ambient and home listening. Haslam has quickly become a fixture in New York’s underground scene, frequently playing The Bunker and Bossa Nova Civic Club, while also maintaining a busy schedule of touring as a DJ and a live performer all over the world. Carlos Souffront is a music gourmet, a true DJ’s DJ. His taste is rich and vast and he has the unique ability to create deeply rhythmic narratives that offer unexpected and exotic spices. Equally entrenched in indie rock, post punk, experimental music, ambient, rock, house, and techno, Carlos was always a man of many worlds – with an ability to traverse through them with an unique imagination. Carlos is an important component of the Interdimensional Transmissions parties, bringing a loose yet tight moody deepness and an ever unexpected edge. He has participated in the studio with Ectomorph, and also performed alongside some of their live performances. Japan’s Shingo Suwa returns as well tonight, the frequent guest artist began his career as a producer/DJ in 2004 and decided to move to Berlin in late 2005. In early 2008 he founded his own label Merkur Schallplatten, with seven EPs that have received wide underground recognition. Shingo Suwa’s fresh groovy vibes have kept him very busy in the scene, and you can groove to his end-of-the-year set tonight.
