About Impulse:
de-1008-760650-frontWith regular events in venues such as about:blank (and more recently Burg Schnabel) as well as their monthly radio show on BLN.fm, Impulse Berlin has steadily built themselves a solid reputation as the go-to crew for all things dubstep and bass music in Berlin since their founding in 2010.

As a collective comprised of 5 different Berliner crews, they represent a large spectrum of bass music which is ever growing. However, at the forefront has always been dubstep – from dubby and deep to dark and dangerous!

On Friday, June 9th, the Impulse residents Infra, Saiman, El Ninho & Hi Enz will be joined on the “Bassweight Meditation” floor by a very special guest from Croydon, UK – the birthplace of Dubstep – who has been around since day one – DJ Hatcha!

Moonshine Recordings

Withavatars-000239515927-xvetwx-t500x500 over 50 releases spanning nearly a decade – from internationally acclaimed artists such as Radikal Guru, Truth, 6blocc, Babylon System, RSD, DJ Madd & Bukkha to name but a few – the esteemed Polish label has carved out a unique niche, continuously floating between dub, steppas and dubstep – simultaneously uplifting and deeply meditative.

On June 10th Moonshine Recordings will team up with the Lion’s Den to bring some of the labels top b(r)ass to Berlin! Radikal Guru (live) & Violinbwoy (live) will be joined by label manager Mack out of Poland! They will be accompanied by the powerful vocals of Echo Ranks out of the UK, known for his anthems such as “Warning!” (produced by Radikal Guru for Moonshine) and “Don’t Kill Your Brother” (produced by Violinbwoy for Lion’s Den)! And as if that weren’t enough, the one and only DJ Madd will be flying in from the US for a few exclusive shows in the Europe, with the highly talented Mysterious Kid providing some amazing visuals for the night!

Check out the brand-new Mooncast #10, mixed by the Guru himself!

Refugees Welcome!

01

We are proud to announce our support of the Plus1 initiative at A Bass Odyssey in Mensch Meier from June 9th – 11th, 2017!

Plus1 is a young initiative which provides an opportunity and organizational framework for Berlin’s party and cultural scene to take a collective stand in welcoming refugees to our city.

As a community who thrives on multi-culturalism and a wide range of musical influences diverged from decades of immigration and its fusion with urban culture, we are strong believers that we need to do everything we can to support refugees in their quest for humane living conditions.

In accordance with Plus1, we kindly request that every person on the guest list – including artists and performers if they wish – donates at least 1 € to the campaign. The money will be collected and contributed equally to different initiatives that are helping refugees, such as SOS Mediterranee, Sea Watch, Jugend Rettet & CADUS – all of which are engaged in “sea rescue” missions; aiding refugees fleeing war torn regions and poverty-stricken countries.

Refugees Welcome!
