take off your shoes. make yourself at home. dance with us and let us praise our new lords and saviors of forward-thinking electronic music, who saved our souls from conservative deep house cardinals and testosterone overdosed big room techno shittery. this party places all our saints in a number of torrid settings and allows you to jump and shake for your own cantilevered satisfaction... a pure divine service in a dimly lit post-modern church of pulsating indulgence.

Obwohl wir bereits sieben unvergessliche Reisen vollenden konnten, gibt es nur wenige, die inzwischen die Bedeutung hinter unseren Expeditionen enthüllt haben. Bei der Frage nach der musikalischen Kuration müssen wir oft noch erklären, was wir für selbstverständlich halten: Musik kann nicht gezwungen werden, sich in strengen Grenzen zu bewegen. Eine Definition von Techno und der Art von Techno, die zu unseren geliebten Trockendocks am Markgrafendamm passt, kann nicht eine einzelne Antwort sein. Es ist Teil unserer Mission geworden, dort die anderen Interpretationen des Genres hervorzuheben, die vielleicht sogar als "kommerziell" oder "zu glücklich" gelten, da wir solche Definitionen in Bezug auf die musikalische Freiheit entschieden ablehnen.

Die diesmalige Expedition setzt ihre Segel in der Übergangszeit zwischen Frühjahr und Sommer. Der große Garten lädt euch ein, ihn zu erkunden, darin verloren zu gehen und das Disco-Spiel zu genießen. Während im Inneren einige der interessantesten Techno-Künstler der Welt unser Schiff in Richtung unbekannter Gebiete steuern. Die Kapitäne versammeln sich aus allen Teilen der Welt: Maxime Dangles aus Paris und Vegim aus Bosnien. Marion Cobretti kommt ursprünglich aus Tel-Aviv, während Broschek ein rarer Berliner ist. Sowohl Kiar Oscuro als auch Rine Ma stammen aus der französischen Schweiz und Senior Diexx muss von Mexiko aus den ganzen Atlantik überqueren, um in unserem Garten zu landen.

Melodisch, energetisch, dunkel, atmosphärisch. Kannst du alle Teile zusammenfügen?



Despite being able to already complete seven memorable journeys, few are those who have by now unveiled the meaning behind our expeditions. When being asked about the musical curation, we often still need to explain what we feel should obvious: music cannot be forced to confine within strict borders. A definition of Techno and the type of Techno that suits our beloved drydocks in the Markgrafendamm cannot have only sole answer. It has there become part of our mission to emphasize those other interpretations of the genre that are perhaps considered even "commercial" or "too happy", since we utterly reject such definitions when it comes to musical freedom.

The current expedition sets sail in the transition time between spring and summer. The wide garden shall welcome you to explore it and the disco spiel it shall offer, while inside, some of the world's most interesting techno creators will navigate our ship towards uncharted territories. The captains were gathered from all over: Maxime Dangles comes from Paris, while Vegim arrives from Bosnia. Marion Cobretti originates in Tel-Aviv, while Broschek is a rare Berliner. Both Kiar Oscuro and Rine Ma come from the French Switzerland and Senior Diexx had to cross the Atlantic all the way from Mexico to land in our garden.

Melodic, energetic, dark, atmospheric. Can you collect all pieces?

We are back at ://about Blank, this time with Ostgut Ton finest Tobias. *live

Two Facts :

Punk is a music genre that developed in the mid-1970s widely known through it’s production style of fast-paced songs, with hard-edged melodies and stripped-down instrumentation paired with an embrace of DIY-culture and the rejection of established rules.

SEELEN. is an independent Techno record label founded in 2018 by JANEIN and Stigmatique, that is based out of Leipzig, Germany.

While at first glance these might not have a lot in common, upon closer inspection you begin to notice, clear as day, there is a distinctly punk mentality in the labels modus operandi. From their cover artworks, that have more in common with a record-stores Death Metal section, to the fact that the label is completely self-distributed to avoid the industry machinery that crushes the spirits of many trying to go through it.

SEELEN.'s musical foundation can no doubt be found in this mentality as well. Formed around a tightly knit crew of artists sharing a single vision, it has sharp corners, an often eye-melting tempo and bleeds from every pore with ecstatic raving madness. Utilizing this, the label exploded onto the scene with two 12” compilations that garnered enormous support from audiences and industry heavy weights alike and also led to them being noticed by Leipzig’s reveled club Institut fuer Zukunft, MMA - Mixed Munich Arts or objekt klein a.

If reading all this has not convinced you yet however, then that’s fine though.

Because SEELEN. is not trying to win you over.

SEELEN. comes from the hearts of the people who form it.
It is a rejection of the mainstream.

SEELEN. is Punk.
wir freuen uns sehr, zu unserem ersten ://about blank-labelshowcase ever einzuladen (das zweite findet btw am 30.08. statt, bitte schon mal im kalender vormerken)!

nach einer langen sendepause nach der ersten platte im sommer 2014 haben wir 2017 das heft wieder in die hand genommen und sind mittlerweile bei katalognummer 006 angekommen - and more is yet to come!

zu unseren ersten labelnacht laden wir diverse, uns sehr ans herz gewachsene künstler_innen ein:

auf dem techno-floor aka mdf spielt die langjährige freundin des hauses STEPHANIE SYKES, die mittlerweile eine verlässliche begleiterin des clubs ist und in deren adern die pure rave-energie pulsiert. unser ebenfalls langjähriger freund des hauses ALEX.DO und unser resident RODMIN (formerly known as akmê) werden mit einem ausgedehnten b2b anschliessen - für eine rave-abfahrt der spitzenklasse ist mit diesem dreierpackage eigentlich schon genug gesorgt.

auf der lobby spielen - neben unseren residents BARBARA HOFMANN und JESSAMINE - CHRISTIAN S und ZK BUCKET, die beide für eine sehr eigenständige definition von house stehen. für ein live-set haben wir uns DANIELA LA LUZ eingeladen, die schon des öfteren unter beweis gestellt hat das sie mit ihren 909-getriebenen tracks die lobby zum kochen bringen kann.

it`s a family affair!
Carlo Ruetz / Kotelett & Zadak / Carbon - live - / Distale / Ring & Dorf / Soso & Rere / Suse / Ander - live - / Midas104 / Lange Brise - live - / SchNee / Perforated Cerebral Party - live - / Sportbrigade Sparwasser u.v.m.
---------------- english below! -----------------
Rauchen, saufen, Jungs* verhaun' – Bollerwagen klaun' und den Herrentag versaun'

Die About Feminism geht in die dritte Runde!
Wir fragen uns immernoch: Herrentag - What the Fuck?! Soli-Damen*gedeck abseits von Bierpfützen und Männerkotze. In geselliger Manier laden wir zum dritten Faulenzen, tanzen und Feiern im idyllischen, allseits beliebten Garten des ABOUT BLANKs. Einen Tag und eine Nacht lang Abseilen von gesellschaftlicher Akzeptanz versoffener Männerhorden und den Herrentag zum Frauen*tag machen!
Neben allerlei musikalischer Unterhaltung wird es auch dieses Jahr wieder viele feministische Überraschungen geben. Weil es für Damen*gedecke auch eine Grundlage braucht, gibt`s süße und salzige Snacks. Mit Lesbarem, Schnickschnack und vielem mehr!


The Kids are alright? Aus verschiedenen Gründen können Leute unter 18 nicht an der Veranstaltung teilhaben.

All gender* welcome!
Keine Macker, kein Sexismus – it‘s all ://about feminism!

Smokin`, boozin’ and spankin`boys! Steelin`handcarts and ruining Father`s Day!

30th of May is Father's Day - we are still asking ourselves: What the Fuck?! The third ://about feminism charity event for the right of choice! We want to celebrate far off from beer puddles and men’s puke. We invite you to the nice ://about.blank garden to laze around and celebrate together. Let's transform Father's day, let's shut down the social acceptance of male mobs and celebrate feminism instead!
There will be musical entertainment in Day- and Nighttime - as well as shoppingstalls, foods, drinks, informations, games, zines, screen printing and many feminist odds and sods moreover it. Join us and come by for some emancipatory experiences and feminist suprises.

The Kids are Allright? because of various reasonspeople under 18 can't join the event.
