Flashback to summer. Living in Berlin and losing many days at the legendary and now sadly, closed Bar25. The thing about Bar25 was that no one really knew when the party started or ended. Wednesday til Tuesday? Probably, and lucky for us we got to be a part of the closing summer of one of the most magical places we’ve ever seen. Sure, we could wax poetic about this special place for days, but you’re better off checking out the trailer for their upcoming film about the bar. We played in various area on the grounds 3 times over the summer (including the closing, which has to be one of the craziest parties the world has ever seen), but the most magical for us was opening for Nico at the beginning of September on a rainy Monday evening.
As they say, “Monday is Sunday” and it couldn’t be more true. The bar room was almost empty when we began our 4 hour journey at 6pm. It was raining and the pounding techno all day had scared many people away, but some of us had been there for days already and there was magic in the air. What you get here is the first couple hours as we set the mood and the room fills up. We went through a selection of our favorite (mostly vinyl) tracks of the summer and then turned to each other and said “wait all this music is about love”, which really is what the summer is about. Summer Camp 2010 4EVA! We love you <3
