Halloween Weekend Clubbing Roundup: London, Berlin, Roma, Antwerp, Barcelona, Copenhagen, New York, Taipei & Sydney

It's a big weekend of clubbing as the freaks come out to celebrate halloween in true techno style. So instead of waffling, we'll get straight to the events. There's plenty to get through so we'll keep most of them short and sweet.


We begin on Friday night in London as Broken & Uneven's Hydra series continues as they welcome online record store to launch their new project, BLPGRN001, the first in a run of 12"s in collaboration with design collective Give Up Art and photographer Shaun Bloodworth.

Provide the music for the night's festivities will be a star studded line up consisting of Blawan, Lucy, Pangaea, Objekt, Kowton and the first UK live show from, the duo of Analogue Cops and Steffi, Third Side.

The party will be held in Hackney Wick at the Ican Studios and tickets are available from Resident Advisor

Saturday at fabric Room 2 hosts the official launch party of their latest cd, fabric 66 mixed by Ben Klock. The Berghain resident is joined by a couple of names that you'll see in the compilation CDs tracklisting in the shape of Truncate and Wincent Kunth.

You can read all about the CD and order your own copy from the fabric website where you can also purchase your Tickets. As part of the package you can get a discount when you order your CD and ticket together.


It's tonight, and already started, but we couldn't do this post without giving it a mention. We're gutted we're not there, but if you're looking for something to do in Berlin tonight, this has to be your only destination.

Tresor, Sonic Groove Records and Fullpanda Records combine in Tresor's Globus room to bring you Timewise. Featuring live sets from Biosphere and Robert Henke and topping it off with an ambient DJ set from Adam X and Dasha Rush.

Once the show has finished the fun's not over, as Adam and Dasha take you down to Tresor's legendary basement for what's bound to be an epic after party. Full event info can be found on the Facebook Event Page

We stay at Tresor from Friday night's shenanigans as Tuna Park puts on an altogether international affair of great interest to us here at SDD. Two SDD Podcasters in Singapore's Xhin and Argentina's Pfirter and past SDD guest, Germany's Milton Bradley.

We don't need to tell you that quality that can be found at Berghain's in house Saturday event, Klubnacht, so we'll let the line up talk for itself!

Robert Hood, Karenn (Blawan & Pariah), Obtane, Giorgio Gigli, Len Faki, Fiedel and Oliver Deutschmann. If you need more convincing, head over to Resident Advisor to see what's happening in the rest of the club.

For our last destination on our worldwide tour we land down under, in Sydney to be more precise, and after a weekend spent with the wonderful Dutch people, it would be wrong not to give a mention to one of their very best techno exports, Steve Rachmad. Disconnected Audio and Shrug present his show that's inspired by his recent album 'Secret Life Of Machines'.
