🎙 PANEL 16:00 UHR:
Archiving Culture(s) - welche Erzählungen schreiben (Clubkultur-) Geschichte? (Deutsche Lautsprache)

Emergent Bass, die neue interdisziplinäre Veranstaltungsreihe im @menschmeierberlin geht in die zweite Runde!

Wir wollen an die Geschichte von Schwarzen und queeren Menschen anknüpfen, die den Dancefloor schon lange als Orte des Widerstands gefeiert haben.

Über Musik, Input und Performances möchten wir denjenigen Respekt zollen, deren Geschichten im Mainstream zu oft nicht gehört werden. House und Techno Musik wurden in Schwarzen und queeren Communities geboren, die den Dancefloor als Ort der kollektiven Heilung nutzten.

Traumata schreiben sich in unsere Körper ein und mit Tanz und Bewegung können wir uns neu aus- und aufrichten. Wir nutzen Archive über Subkultur um die afro-diasporischen Wurzeln der House-, Techno- und Bass-Musik freizulegen.

Wenn du Underground-Clubkultur liebst, aber dir über ihre Ursprünge im Unklaren bist, dann bist du bei uns richtig.

Mit einem Fokus auf Bassmusik und afrodiasporische Rhythmen feiern wir die zweite Ausgabe.

Emergent Bass- New project!

As a teenager, electronic music, raves and sweaty dance floors literally saved my life when other forms of support were not available.

Electronic music has given me so much, I’m grateful to be offering something that will hopefully help other #Black, #Queer and POC folks to reconnect with the club space as part of our #ancestral lineages.

I’m the creative director of Emergent Bass (Emergent Bass Berlin), an event series in Berlin that celebrates the Afro-diaspora influence in electronic music and underground club culture. Our events provide a platform for African heritage and migrant DJs who honour the roots of these genres and the generative or #healing power of bass frequencies. Each event will feature a panel discussion about the Black & POC influence in the 90’s Berlin electronic music scene and other related topics about representation, curated by Sarah Farina.

Despite Berlin being one of the dance music capitals of the world, many do not know the roots of this music. We are aiming to shift that by rooting the project and conversations in German as so many conversations about race/representation are in English. Our social media posts are bi-lingual: swipe for English 😉

This project has been grown in close collaboration with Karo of Mensch Meier, Sarah Farina as well as the Archiv der Jugendkulturen. We have an amazing team and I’m grateful for all the energy that has been given to this so far.

All being well, we will have three open air events this summer in #Berlin. Please follow Emergent Bass Berlin for updates.

Big love xx

The next edition of #bass incarnate drops this Wednesday 28th April at 15 CET / 14 U.K. time via Refuge Worldwide.

Bass incarnate celebrates bass heavy and #polyrhythmic music rooted in the #africandiaspora. It starts with a downtempo #embodiment practice then builds in intensity before slowing down at the end. Perfect for some deep listening or a bit of a dance #ritual.

This weeks show features music from @mrmitchmusic @itoamusic @suzianalog @sarahfarinabln @gafacci and more ✨

This radio residency is giving me life and reminding me of how much I’m nourished by sonic healing and playful creativity. It feels particularly important in this moment that is filled with grief. Joy and pleasure are necessary when available.

If you are feeling the show, I’d love to hear it! I’ve been touched by all the sweet responses so far.

If you miss it live, you can catch up on the Refuge Worldwide website or via my soundcloud. ✨💫🍃

Happy Saturday y'all,

Hope you are doing well as can be.

Music is one of the great joys of my life. I am blessed to have been born into a family that considers music to be a spiritual and necessary component of a good life. My parents gave me a thorough musical education exposing me to jazz, west african music, psychedelic rock, soul, disco, blues, R & B, early electronica and trip hop. In many ways my journey with dance has been about my body being in conversation with music. It's always the starting point for me. In much of my art making too.

I am fascinated by the healing potential of bass frequencies and polyrhythms. I notice that low end frequencies and layered percussion can facilitate me going into dance based trance states quite easily. A lot of my embodiment research and self experimentation began in the context of raves and clubs where there were big subwoofers. I would often put earplugs in and stand as close to the stacks as possible, allowing the bass to help me shed energy and grief that no longer needed to be carried in my body. I am truly a devotee to the power of bass weight.

It gives me great pleasure to be focusing on music more and curating journeys that allow folks to take sonic adventures with me. I have been given a 6 month radio residency with Refuge Worldwide offering a monthly show called Bass Incarnate. The first episode is Wednesday March 31st. Hope to catch you on the digital airwaves xx

Each show is a journey through genres including Bailie, Hip Hop, Footwork, Deep House, Afro Bass, Garage and 2 step with the intention to get you dancing. Bass incarnate begins with a downtempo embodiment practice, then builds up the polyrhythmic intensity before ending with some downtempo tracks to ground out.

    Hiii folks! I have exciting news to share \( • ◡ • )/ Not too long ago I was asked by AfroOankali & @pewpew punani to help curate the panels and workshops for their new interdisciplinary event series Emergent Bass Berlin at Mensch Meier in cooperation with Archiv der Jugendkulturen. Our first event will be held next week on Sat, 17th of July & will be taking place outside! And Daniel from „Archives of youth cultures“ and I curated the panel „Past, Present, Future: Wie Schwarze Musikkultur die Berliner Clubkultur geprägt hat“. As u can guess, this panel will be in German. I think it’s so important to make especially room for the Black german perspectives on the past, present and future when it comes to club culture and beyond. Our awesome guests will be MINCO (DJ), Michael Mueller (Promoter & Booker), Kalle Kuts (DJ & Music Activist) and our host will be the wonderful singer, sonwriter & activist MALONDA. Of course we’ll also have music: Juba Music, BFAN, Freak de l'Afrique & myself will be djing and La By'le will perform live! Click here for the event details (Covid rules etc.) ➔ EMERGENT BASS #1 & please spread the word! I’m feeling very grateful to be part of this & can’t wait to see you there ~( ̄‿ ̄~) ________________⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Artwork Credit: Nelson Kinalele #RainbowBass #EmbraceTheBass #RootsSpaceVision #MusicEducation #PoliticsOfTheDanceFloor #EmergentBass #EmergentBassBerlin #AfrodiasporicMusic #UnheardStoriesOfBerlin #ArchivDerJugendkulturen #MenschMeier
    How can nightlife can be designed in harmony with the earth’s finite resources? What would really be necessary to create a club experience that takes the climate and fragility of all of us into account? The second episode of our podcast "Politics of the Dance Floor" curated by Transmission_net aka Sarah Farina and Kerstin Meißner addresses sustainability from the angle of rave and resistance. One of the guests is Camille Barton aka AfroOankali, artist, writer and somatic educator, who has been working on the intersections of wellness, drug policy and transformative justice. Tune in at hkw.de/dancefloor or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher!
