In the right place / At the right time / You can see a rainbow being defined...

It's been ten years since Mieko Suzuki and Arno Raffeiner a.k.a. Ara started their KOOKOO adventure, back in the summer of 2009. They set out to create a playground for midnight dancers and vorspielers that very soon proved to be the ideal space for an ongoing dialogue between music, art, nightlife, and a very dedicated audience. In short: more than they could ever have hoped for.

That same summer, in 2009, Mo Loschelder hurled herself into another adventure of her own and established the MEDIA LOCA platform, an agency focusing on experimental electronic music with an amazing roster ranging from Gudrun Gut to Jan Jelinek, from Natalie Beridze to Ilpo Väisänen – and now adding Mieko Suzuki.

Since then, the MEDIA LOCA universe and the KOOKOO world have grown closer and closer, and there was no question that they had to celebrate their 10th anniversaries together. For this very special occasion, they've put together the line-up of their dreams with several KOOKOO heroes and a selection of MEDIA LOCA all stars.

Thanks to everyone involved over all these years, you know who you are.
Let's go KOOKOO! Let's go LOCA!

... is it yours? / Is it mine? / Is it ours to divide?
It's not yours / It's not mine / It belongs to us

founder of the global female:pressure network and one of the most prominent figures in the international DJ scene. Her sets are characterized by clear vision and depth that can only result from true understanding of sound.

audiovisual jack of all trades and master of frequencies, Bretschneider is known for precise sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and his minimal, flowing approach. And for co-founding the Raster label, back in 1995, of course.

the sharp mind of a methodical thinker combined with the restless heart of a passionate artist. Dalt seeks to create specific mental states through sound, her recent work developing around the ideas of repositioning fiction and time perception. Enjoy one of her rare and unique DJ sets at Kookoo X Media Loca!

one of Berlin's best kept secrets when it comes to pioneering underground DJs. El Puma has been around since the infamous Elektro Music Department collectively explored the endless possibilities of reduction and repetition.

a sculptural installation artist. She explores the precariousness of place and cultural identity in an increasingly globalised contemporary reality. Her paper replica environments inhabit an ambiguously hybrid and fascinating space.

a medium. Taguchi makes interventions based on the inspiration he gets from each specific site, mostly working with stop-motion video. This results in visual feedback loops enhancing the experience of everyone present in the given space at the given time.
