The second edition of our new monthly party series T.O.F.U. (Too Old For Understatement) is taking place on July 25th at our venue-of-choice, the lovely Beate Uwe. After the success of our launch party with munich‘s legendary disco edit wizzard Alkalino (check out photos here) we‘re set to announce the line-up for the forthcoming party! For one of the best sound systems of the city we invited some of our most favorite artists at the time. Markus Gibb (Magic Feet / Clouded Vision, Lyon) is one of the surprise artists of this year with his solid producer talent churning out hypnotic, throbbing and catchy dark disco tracks that many DJs carry in the red tape section of their record bags. Hailing from Lyon, France, we have asked him to make his way to Berlin for his first ever gig in the German capital.
Disrute (Power Station, Melbourne) was somewhat of a lucky find during Sean Patrick’s time in Australia. Impressed after seeing his set at Strawberry Fields Festival, Sean started following this young man, who is still at the start of his career, however already impresses with an exotic and vibrant selection of tunes that flow nicely between Balearica speckled sunshine and dark, dense, dubbed out weirdness on labels such as Melbourne‘s Power Station.
Local Suicide (Bordello A Parigi/T.O.F.U.) and Sean Patrick (T.O.F.U.) are the founders of the T.O.F.U. movement and have many years of experience under their belt as DJs, producers, promoters and dance enthusiasts. What brought them together as partners was their shared experience in back-office careers inside the music business.
Together we believe that we can combat the overstimulated, overfed crowds in Berlin that hardly ever show true enthusiasm anymore and create something simple, fun and unpretentious. We want to do away with club nights where people quote each other labels, names and release dates but forget what it is really about: Communication, dancing and fun.
