For this our first in a new series of oh so cleverly named limited specials we present the leviathan of Berghain Berlin, RA's Best Cub 2010 ... BEN KLOCK! Flying in from Germany for this one exclusive date, for the day of the birth of Jesus 2010 years ago ha ha we have set up a party even He wouldnt miss (for all the sandals in Galilee!). Riding high on the success of his remix for Depeche Mode & so many more massively well-received remixes and tracks (check especially the new Sandwell District remixes of the 'One' album) Ben is one of the key players in the techno scene right now, djing all over the world at the best venues in the world and of course once a month his residency at Berghain, where his sets are nothing short of legendary. So far we have had the pleasure of welcoming Pendle Coven, MLZ, Mike Parker, Cio D'Or & Peter Van Hoesen to Warehouse702, converted as ever to our unique deep sea-inspired platform... we await with bated breath Ben's arrival for doubtless the biggest Mariana event yet.
Supporting Ben in this one date exclusive gig is local hero & Labyrinth regular DJ SO, NOP from troplott music plus the very talented TEZ from Raft Tokyo. Unfortunately Mariana founder DAVE TWOMEY aka TR NCH will be absent due to an ongoing serious illness. Our thoughts are with him...
For one night only... we give you BEN KLOCK & the sound of BERGHAIN, Berlin!!!!

BEN KLOCK / Ostgut Ton
Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock 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 is also one of the busiest DJ's on the international circuit right now. Playing techno sets full of hypnotic, deep and heavy grooves, releasing records on Ostgut Ton and last his own label Klockworks have earned him an excellent reputation as producer and DJ. Edgy and enthralling tracks, remixes for such diverse artists as Kerri Chandler, Martyn, even Depeche Mode, the revered debut album “One” on Ostgut Ton and his Berghain mix, Ben Klock’s name is synonymous with the vitalization of the modern definition of techno.
Klock pursues a fusion of quantum jumps and tradition with consistency, tension & dynamics. Harmonizing industrial austerity, natural musicality and an impressive physicality is Ben Klock’s great art and skill. Finally of course his monthly marathon sets at Berghain & all over the world that demonstrate all that’s being said with pure sound & consistently motivate Ben Klock to stand clear of the trapdoor named 'routine'.
