Ostgut Ton Room
Berlin based Label Ostgut Ton has been voted for the ‚Best Label 2008’ by Resident Advisor with a unique sound architecture, pushing forward the world- famous Berghain signature sound. Ostgut Ton managed to foster an idiosyncratic style with an uncompromising and coherent release policy. The label has become one of the most influential platforms for Techno and House, providing their Berghain- and Panorama Bar residents an artistic home
The main room welcomes Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock whose name is synonymous with the vitalization of an essential definition of techno. He is without a doubt one of the most significant characters in Techno’s recent history. A resident at Berghain since its opening in 2004, he has been able to leave his mark on the club’s unique sound. Playing techno sets full of hypnotic, deep and heavy grooves, releasing records on Ostgut Ton and last but not least the aesthetics of his own label Klockworks (founded in 2006), have earned him an excellent international reputation over the last few years.
DVS1 is one of the most prominent figures in the Midwest/US dance music landscape today. A local DJ favourite since the mid nineties, DVS1 continues to move floors with a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparalleled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 10,000 records. He plays a wide variety of sounds—from hard and fast, to deep and hypnotic, to slow and soulful. Rather than giving limiting names to the genres he plays, he describes the music as beats, rhythms, textures, and colours. His range and emotional focus explains why he never maps out his sets ahead of time, rather opting to craft sets spontaneously. This improvisational element makes each of his sets a one-of-a-kind personal expression, never again to be repeated, in which the audience’s mood and energy level always plays a notable role.

Ryan Elliot :What matters most, above all else, is what comes through the speakers,” says Detroit’s Ryan Elliott. “It must be the right track at the right time, delivered in the right way.” Nobody knows this better than Elliott, whose distinction as an internationally respected DJ and remixer, has grown steadily over his decade behind the decks. In 2009 Elliott relocated to Berlin to further his focus on DJing and production but even after his relocation, Ryan Elliot’s sound remains unchanged: bass line -driven techno and house reduced to their essences, thoughtfully calibrated to drive crowds out of their minds. The time is right, the tracks are right, and Ryan Elliott is exactly where he needs to be.
Evan Baggs is a name that may not be on the cover of every magazine but one that is in the back of everyone’s mind. The 28 year old born and bred New Yorker has gained a reputation through his sheer passion, consistently energetic track selections, clever and precise mixing. Through word of mouth – and years before his first releases – he has been invited to DJ for crowds all over the world from Brazil to China and everywhere in between. His DJ sets are as exciting and diverse as his hometown and have gained him compliments from many international DJ’s and producers, who recognize him as a legitimate up and coming talent.
Karina :Already one of the most integral artists within The Zoo Project and an avid collector and player of all things vinyl, Karina is here to make her mark. Originally hailing from Poland she currently spends her winters in Berlin and her summers in Ibiza. An ideal solution for her innovative and forward thinking mind, with Berlin fuelling her creative side and influencing her in the way only Berlin can, and Ibiza home to some of the best clubs in Europe where she has the task of playing and fulfilling each summer. Appreciating the fundamentals of raw Chicago and Detroit house music, her trademark style fuses elements of the two smoothly together with the minimalistic, forward thinking deep house that has become her staple sound. Never afraid to stray from her normal sound and always keen to experiment with something outside of the traditional house/techno paradigm, her vinyl selection is seductive, laid-back and hypnotic while all the time retaining a driving, motivating rhythm.
