this is the highly anticipated documentary that brings us the story and, most probably subsequent, closing at the end august of the lengendary bar25 club
in berlin. known as one the most charismatic techno place in the world, the grand opening took place in 2004 with a six-week-long, non-stop party. klenzendorf
was the mentor behind this place with the circus and childhood theme, wich never abandoned this place.
the bar itself was really special, it was a sort of wooden shed that could be used only in summer. on the site there were also a music stage, a fireplace, a hostel with swimming pool and private accommodations, as many people lived on the premises also. toys such as swings or discarded dodgems gave the bar the appearance of a playground for adults. over the years,the most famous djs of the techno scene play in this incredible place.
along with this release comes a compilation of their inner circle of musicians with a unique assemblage of musical contributions from the long-time compatriots of this exceptional location. artists include: acid pauli, soil ain’t solid (feat. reecode), oliver koletzki, marcus meinhardt, nu (feat. joke), niconé & sascha braemer, dirty doering, nico stojan, channel x, britta arnold, daniel dreier & dale, jake the rapper, wareika, budzillus, kiki bohemia, hey-o-hansen, pilocka krach, jahcoozi, dop, lee jones, margaret dygas, don shtone, rizzoknor, beaner and capey cash.
personally, bar25 is one of the most singular, surreal, magical, mystical, special places i’ve been to and will surelly be carried on my mind and spirit for the years to come. anyways my thoughts, as derrick l. carter would say, are that this is: -not an end, but a beggining.
