Berghain’s Ostgut Ton imprint is celebrating its fifteenth birthday with Luke Slater's 'Fünfzehn' mix.
The release, slated to land on 3rd April, was created by the decade-spanning techno hero after revisiting the label's back catalogue. New compositions were then created from batches of ten releases, resulting in a 130-minute meld representing the sound of curator and the 15-year-old institution. Following the album, two 12"s will drop, containing a total of seven exclusive tracks, which will be available to stream and download.
Berghain's in-house label, Ostgut Ton, will celebrate its 15th anniversary across multiple cities throughout 2020.
With a current roster boasting the likes of Answer Code Request, Ben Klock, Kobosil, Martyn, and Phase Fatale, the Berlin-based label have promised acts from the roster "past, present and future," with line-ups for each Fünfzehn event announced on the night.
Berghain resident Phase Fatale has announced a new album, ‘Scanning Backwards’, which lands on Ostgut Ton in the new year.
Eight tracks will feature on the record, slated to arrive on 24th January 2020. The music itself has been specifically designed for maximum impact on the dancefloor of the legendary Berlin venue, which celebrates its 15th birthday next month. It's the producer's second full-length work.
Berghain has announced a huge line-up for its 15th birthday celebrations.
The party will start at midnight on Saturday 14th December, running through until, as always with Klubnacht, sometime on Monday.
Berghain's 15th birthday will welcome a whopping 24 artists to the hallowed club, including Aurora Halal, Efdemin, Marcel Dettmann, Surgeon, Steffi and a live show from Caterina Barbieri in Halle, the rarely used third space.
Shed will return to Ostgut Ton for the release of his next album, 'Oderbruch'.
His fifth studio album marks his first full-length release for Ostgut Ton since 2010's 'The Traveller' and takes its name from the former East German region in which the producer, real name René Pawlowitz, grew up and now spends some of his time when not in his base of Berlin. The track's titles take inspiration from the area and its landscapes.
Steffi and Virginia have collaborated on a new release.
'Work A Change', incoming on Berghain's in-house Ostgut Ton label, is an eight-track project which sees the two artists collaborate for the first time in eight years.
Signalling a change in creative direction for the duo, the press release cites "unlike the grand maximalism often associated with vocals in dance music, Steffi and Virginia's creations use the voice less as a centerpiece and more an integral part of the groove itself."
Long time Berghain/Panorama Bar resident Martyn will release on the club's Ostgut Ton label next month.
The 'Odds Against Us' EP, incoming 26th July, is Martyn's first solo release since 2018's exceptional and atmospheric 'Voids' LP – a deeply personal album that came in at No.7 in our top 50 of the year.
Norman Nodge has revealed details of his first new solo record since 2011.
Due next month via Ostgut Ton, the Berghain resident’s four-track EP, titled 'Embodiment', is said to be a reflection of “decades of observing how dancers develop an intuitive relationship to music and process new sounds”.
Nodge has been a resident at Berghain since 2005 having started out as a DJ and promoter with connections to other Berghain residents Marcel Dettmann and Marcel Fengler in the '90s.
Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann has revealed plans for a new double EP, 'Test-File', landing via Ostgut Ton. The EP is his first formal release in five years.
'Test-File' is the German DJ and producer’s first effort for the label since 2013's 'Dettmann II' LP and, according to the label, sees him exploring more improvisational territory.
