diving into nu’s musical world is like a butterfly’s flight through the tropical nature of the peruian andes. orchídeas. cantutas. mariposa. at berlin’s bar25 club, nu was a pioneer. with his organic sounds, he paved new paths and set the foundation for a new genre: relaxed, open-minded, playful, floating, full of soul and depth.under the alias canu, he and mexican world-traveler alejandro castelli draw us under a spell once again with “mariposa“. the unwavering beat grooves to the sound of the melody. equally inspired by his music, bedouin, kmln, viken arman and davi each contribute a remix to this single. these four artists are also among the brightest stars on the night‘s horizon. let’s fly little mariposa…

bar 25 music proudly presents this 12inch-ep from benno blomes forthcoming album >night shots<, including three remixes. remixed by dachshund from geneva and tigerskin from berlin, >white flag< is a deep tune, full of 909 drum sounds with a reduced melodic synth-line that sidles seductive through its performance. >we come in peace<, is pitched way down in dachshunds fantastic mix. in tigerskins version, it disappeared, instead layering the hook line into a warm, dubby groove monster. >spherical aberration< goes deep, yet remains pretty club-compatible in its original version. it has found a superb remix by jiggler from berlin. he is also known as one half of channel x, and is pushing the theme into its boundaries and is capable to set any floor on fire. this 4-track-vinyl ep is a preview in reference to bennos full length album >night shots<, to be released in february 2018, also on bar 25 music. stay tuned...
the artist duo “bondi“ is celebrated by a growing international fan community. jam sessions, different genres and a colourful life are the sources of inspiration for both musicians. “mercury“ is playfully melodical and convinces with profound synth chords. in “land of the blind“, the melodical elements and emphasized vocals, which mark the climax of the track, sound impressive. see you on the next festival stage!

finally, a new, true doering, whose other name dirty is something of a fake-out: >i would< captivates the listener with clean, maximum minimal beauty, in typical doering style. the melodies swing gentle as a cradle, the beats take effect in a supporting role and the vocals, though sparsely deployed, complete the demand for inner harmony. the elements combine to create a languorous, warm feeling around the heart û a flawless hit.

for some time now the bar25 label has wanted to put out a release with all of our swiss musician friends – the many folks who came to the swiss weekends at the bar and generally made a habit of visiting us in berlin. the bar always had a deep swiss connection, manifested not least in the legendary swiss cabin, home away from home to larger groups of visiting friends and monday evening after-hour hotspot. alpenglühen – feines aus der schweiz (alp glow – swiss bliss) is a swanky double vinyl of high-quality production art made in switzerland. on vinyl 1, animal trainer from hive audio share a side with andri, the zurich native. techno gladiator wandler and live artist canson play the other side, while vinyl 2 lets two matadors from the new zurich club friedas büxe – don ramon and san marco – steer for a while. and the two music geniuses from galoppierende zuversicht are also here, fittingly, using sounds recorded live at friedas büxe for their track. the sampler concludes with the exceptionally talented mastra, who contributed a special song to this swiss musical collage. the digital release also comes with a bonus live track by sublime stage band rizzoknor. even the cover was designed in switzerland, during a bar25 night at the legendary cabaret in zurich. were all excited about this release since its a special one for the 25 label. marked both by good old times and new horizons, this record is a musical compilation representing the very special kind of artist that will always be welcome in wild berlin!
long-winded essays on the musical qualities of wareika are unnecessary. the trio has been playing its way in to the hearts of electronic listeners and party-goers since their first release in 2008 – especially with their brilliant live performances.
wareikas solid output has been proven over and over with steady releases on noted labels like liebe*detail, conaisseur or perlon. falling categorically somewhere in between house, jazz and dub, wareika have remained individualists and their music is a hot topic for djs, clubbers and festival visitors alike.
now, at the end of the 2011 season, we are proud to release >amber vision< – a wareika record that couldnt fit better into the bar25 musical family.
this album builds more than just one bridge between the best worlds of frivolousness and dependability – horizontally, vertically, all the directions in between, and in time. no matter what the current when you cross, the beginning and the end dissolve into an everlasting flow in true 25 character. the journey is fueled by its own limitlessness, all the while delivering crucial reference points for a purposeful riptide ride.
the experienced hedonist lets herself be driven through her beloved quarter-note spheres, relishing the moments when, in certain beats, twinkling details lead her towards a different route – one familiar but long forgotten. she strings this pearl on her chain of rhythm-driven moods, calling upon it at the right times to amplify her individual push. the allure of the impacts unfolding redeems each secret whispered by the spirit of the sound.
with friends and cohorts like these, you can’t be sad for long. after the longest and best-ever and final closing, the saddest, best-ever and most personal record on the bar25 label is here. as pure dumb numerical luck would have it, it is – naturally – the 25th release. and, we’re almost proud to say, it’s strictly family business. the closing record speaks more to the spirit of the bar than any words, spoken or written, ever could. every track unique yet well-rounded, somewhere between universal and personal. awash with emotion, as though the sound machines had begun to breathe.
thanks for dance. thanks for smile. thats needed to be said. nicone and sascha braemer (one part of heinrichs & hirtenfellner), done it again. after the >nur mal kurz ep< on bar25, these 2 guys follow up with there next self-deprecating hit on the bar25 label.
philip bader und nico stojan verbringen ihre zeit im studio verdammt effektiv. was die beiden beizusteuern haben ergaenzt sich grandios. philips leichter hang zu verklöppelten latino styles und nicos verständnis für rhythmus und breitflächige baesse fügen sich ineinander zu ganzheitlichen und satten sounds.
another fresh face for the vastness we like to call minimal techno. a few months ago, javier logares tracks for bar 25s little sub-sister bar25digital went down a storm, so it was about time to introduce his music to the vinyl world of bar 25.
>elastic doll< is a cheeky bouncing piece of minimal techno with a marching bassline and a handful of dancing bleeps at all the right places. this elastic doll will lure you right into afterhour debauchery.
on >the wrong clue< javier dims the lights and sets a more haunting tone with an eerie synth-melody and bleeps, that slowly but surely crawl up your spine. seriously tripping stuff this is.
almost no other club has been the subject of so many song dedications. this time, nicone & sascha braemer deliver a heart-wrenching declaration of love for the bar25. >nur mal kurz< is nothing less than this years hit of the summer. straight rumbles, smooth sound dimensions and high-noon vocals are a serenade to the 25 timeloop
willkommen in berlins herzen der finsternis! der kalifornische expat beaner, der auch auf aaron hedges’ label district of corruption veröffentlicht und mit seinen monatlichen >frühtau< partys ganz nebenbei selbst ein profilierter afterhour-entrepreneur ist, hat sich mit seinem enigmatischen partner c.l.a.w.s. zusammengetan, ihr vinyl-debüt auf bar25 abzuliefern. nach zahlreichen montags-sets in den morgendlichen twilight-zone-stunden in der bar diesen sommer, haben sich die beiden das mehr als verdient. und die drei tracks katapultieren dich durch düster pumpende techno-landschaften. dark und minimalistisch. schnallt euch an, sie meinen es ernst!
first single of brians album, which will be released in february 2009. saysay features justine electra and comes with a great mymy remix. b1 and b2 tracks are featuring brians producion with the voices of raz ohara and jake the rapper. not to be missed!
ah, its time for some eerie minimal techno again. dry, percussive, hypnotic, trippy. when sunday turns into monday and the week starts exactly like the last one ended – on the dancefloor, propelled by a thumping bassdrum. dima is a bar 25 regular and has released on beatsreet (another berlin institution of endless afterhour journeys) before. this one is his bar 25 debut, tried and tested on various occasions and legendary sasomo moments. his four tracks dive deep into a nocturnal techno habitat, where percussion- sounds fade away in the twilight and the groove just won’t stop. there is no way out, just give in to its pleasures
>papier konfekt mit euphorium-efekt fliegt in die lüfte jedes der bunten teilchen flattert trippig durch die punktstrahler glücksgefühle freisetzend möchte man sich im schnipselteppich verlieren berauscht, verspielt wie junge katzen geniesst jeder das gribbel auf der haut und im kopf ein circus voller nostalgie verträumtes feuerwerk der sinne jedes teilchen individuell und einziartig schillernd in der bar25 alle vereint auf einem vinyl<
