Tim Sweeney & John Talabot join Giegling for Naive Melodies at Stattbad
By Brendan Power . December 3, 2014
For fans of electronic music in Berlin, it would seem that Christmas has come early this year, with a blockbuster line up of acts coming together for the Naive Melodies party at Wedding’s most excellent venue, the former swimming pool-turned-nightclub “Stattbad“, on Friday December 5th.
Naive Melodies, which started out in the basement club Kleine Reise in 2012, brings their biggest party yet to Stattbad with both Catalan musical maestro John Talabot, and New York’s Tim Sweeney headlining the night on the Boiler floor, while the up-and-coming Berlin label, Giegling, take control of the Bunker floor. Check out the videos above and below for a taste of what to be expected from the headliners.
Talabot, whose 2012 LP fin on Permanent Vacation and subsequent live show with Pional made waves within the club circuit internationally, is also know for recent collaborations with Axel Boman under the name Talaboman. These have been released on his own imprint Hivern Discs, as well as solo releases on Young Turks.
Meanwhile, Tim Sweeney is on the crest of a wave at the moment, celebrating 15 years of his most excellent Beats in Space radio show on WNYU in New York, which consistently attracts the freshest and most respected artists in electronic music today. He recently blew the roof off of Panorama Bar last month, and if you couldn’t make it then, be sure to catch him this time.
Down in the Bunker floor , Weimar record label Giegling (check out their video below) will be showcasing some of their best talents including Vril’s acclaimed live show as well as DJ performances from both label co-founder Ateq and label manager DJ Dustin . Joining the Giegling family is Cómeme’s Lena Willikens: DJ, radio broadcaster, producer and Theremin player who will be kicking things off with her unique music selection.
