The Robert Johnson club is now top dog in a hood that has housed such German techno institutions as the Dorian Gray, The Omen and U60. An intimate alternative to Cocoon’s futurist vision, Robert Johnson’s marriage of no-nonsense design and gargantuan soundsystem have long proved a resounding hit with the serious heads looking to hear the likes of Magda, Hawtin and Pearson in a venue that feels as cosy and comfortable as their front room.
“It has by far the biggest and best sounding system for a club of its size I've ever experienced,” reckons Dub Kult. “And the crowd are just totally up for quality music. Perfect. And that's not even mentioning the outdoor area over looking the river.”
