This Friday we’re going to enjoy an extended mixing session recorded by BioN & Berten De Beukelaer at the well-known Club der Visionaere in Berlin, which still struggles to survive after last year’s fire and the coronavirus setbacks. Find out how you can help and support the club here.
BioN is a Berlin-based DJ and producer who’s been active in the German underground scene since 2006, working very closely with the Club der Visionaere and Hoppetosse crews. His sets incorporate elements from downtempo, deep house, dub techno, minimal and microhouse, while his productions have been published independently on Bandcamp and by Roundqube Musik. Last year, he developed the GEMiNii party series along with his closest friends, having guests like Denis Kaznacheev, Anton Kubikov, Alex Celler, Oskar Szafraniec, Matthias Lindner, Einzelkind, Felipe Valenzuela and Dana Ruh, among many others. Recently, the venture became a label as well, with the first EP dispatched by Root & Bauch.
Berten De Beukelaer aka Metrobox started to explore music a long time ago, studying the transverse flute for over a decade before getting more and more into the modern aspects of house and techno. His first EP came out in 2007 through Morse Records, followed by materials on We Play House, Mobilee, Other Heights, Fellowship Of The Funk, Blossom Kollektiv and Dalken. In time he gained a solid reputation as a DJ and live performer, playing at some of Europe’s finest venues and coordinating numerous collaborative projects, like Nerds of Paradise alongside Julie Marghilano focused around live jams and spontaneous synchronisation. He also participated with a mix in the feeder sound Open Call for DJs which you can listen to here.
“The recording is the first part of an eleven hours session at Club der Visionaere in Berlin. It was my dear friend Ciro Bolognini aka BioN who reached out to play records together. He’s the creator of GEMiNii, a band of musical adventurers, born under the sign of Gemini. Always for a good session with more than a few good laughs. Proper jam times altogether. There are a couple of upcoming releases on Geminii Records and Dalken in this mix by the way. Most importantly, I’d like to emphasize the intrinsic value and importance of Club der Visionaere in my personal life, as well as those of countless kindred spirits in the past, present and future.” – Berten De Beukelaer
