Passing the Acid Test

Back in 2012, Unscene predicted the revival of the acid sound in Berlin, and it still seems to be going strong.  And better yet, it still seems to be entwined with the same radical spirit as ever.

Tonight's Anti Repression Soliparty at the Rauchaus in Kreuzberg (which aims to raise funds to help Rigaer Strasse's embattled residents) features acid techno DJ's. The MVMNT13#2 party at Urban Spree, which will collect goods and funds for refugees stranded in Idomeni, will play "house-acid-techno" among other styles.  Mensch Meier's Serendubity party on Saturday features "Acid Dub Foundation" at their party, which aims to "celebrate individual and cultural diversity while combining/interchanging various aspects of our personal identities, characteristics and rolls (sic) in today's society."

Even the more mainstream Klubnacht at Berghain will feature psychedelic house and an "acid workout" in the Panorama Bar.

If you like to hear acid being dropped on a dancefloor, here are some names to keep your eyes peeled for:

DJs: Acid Maria, Tanith and a neverending rotation of guest DJs from abroad like Chris Liberator (brought here by yours truly)

Parties: Berlin Invasion, MVMNT 13, Krach, Abyss, plus most Klubnacht nights at Berghain

Venues: Mensch Meier, Hangar 49, Rauschhaus, Koepi, Griessemuehle, about:blank, R19, Weisse Hase

Events: Fuckparade, Zug Der Liebe, Krake festival, word-of-mouth freetekno parties.
