Andy Stott, Milton Bradley and Blackest Ever Black artists will play the first edition of the new experimental night.
The series will explore the gray area between club music and the avant-garde—an objective that's well-suited to Berghain's crisp sound and ominous atmosphere. The bill for the opening night is dominated by two of techno's deepest and darkest labels: Modern Love and Blackest Ever Black. Andy Stott, Demdike Stare and Tropic of Cancer will play live, and Raime will DJ. Adding to the gloom are avant-bass duo Emptyset, Milton Bradley of Do Not Resist the Beat and ≠ resident Opium Hum. Even the date of the event is loaded with mystique: 11:00 PM on 11/11/11.
≠ is a party rather than a concert, meaning it will run until sometime on Saturday morning or afternoon. That same night, Radio Slave will be upstairs in Panorama Bar with 2000 and One and Midnight Operator, a new project by Mathew Jonson and Hrdvsion (AKA Nathan Jonson).
