If our modern day distress is so profound, it is because each of us begins to feel the ground disappear beneath our feet. We are discovering more or less opaquely that we are all in motion towards new terrains, that require rediscovery.

Possible Futures presents a new edition of Aquarian Shift at OHM. For this new saga, we look all the way up to our neighbours, adjacent Belgium and Holland, inviting some of the most exciting artists to come out of the aquarian parts of the low-lying lands.

On April 26th, Curious Paul invites De School householder Oceanic, as well as Stroom label-wizard Nosedrip to join mainstay Alex from Tokyo, who currently draws his very own centre line between Ghent and Berlin.

Alex From Tokyo

In constant flow, Alex from Tokyo is an international man of musical wonderment, with a career that extends over three decades and continents. It simply is unthinkable to pin him down to a given space-time continuum. Alex grew up in Japan, where he lived over 20 years and became a staple of the Tokyo scene. In 2004, Alex moved to New York City, where he established himself as a reference, playing at many of the city’s institutions - Le Bain, Good Room, Cielo, APT… In the meantime he developed his production as one half of Tokyo Black Star - producing for Deeply Rooted, mule, Planet E and his own imprint World Famous. For the past year, Alex from Tokyo has called Berlin home, and OHM, his house.

Nosedrip (STROOM)

Ziggy Devriendt aka Nosedrip hails from Ostend, Belgium’s most beautiful coastal town. In the space of just a few years, Ziggy’s made a name for himself with the persistence and focus of a kid that wants to prove all his bullies wrong. From running a legendary ambient show on his Mixcloud-page, which has a staggering 30.000+ followers, he went on to launch Stroom.tv. The platform caused quite some waves in the online radio community because of its unique mixture of oddball playlists and distinctive aesthetics. In 2016, his radio show moved to NTS and Stroom.tv turned into a record label focusing on heritage, with Ziggy spitting out killer archival releases. As a DJ, Nosedrip sets moods like no-one else and leaves dancefloors gasping for breath everywhere he goes.

Oceanic (De School)

Not everyone grows up with the sea in his backyard. Sliding through the salty waters next of Zeeland, the now Rotterdam based Oceanic found what he’d like the most: trancey percussion over floating ungraspable rhythms. Several thrilling productions settled on his brother’s label Nous’klaer Audio, remixes on Versatile and Yeyeh, with many more to come. By holding a monthly residency at Amsterdam club De School, he developed a knack for tracing lines between unpredictable genres whilst never taking his eye off the dance floor, making him one of the most exciting DJ talents of the Netherlands.

Curious Paul (Possible Futures)

Traveler, medium, tranquilizer, Curious Paul started compiling mixtapes by the Mediterranean Sea long before he could get into clubs. From there to Buenos Aires, to Tbilisi, through to Tokyo and back to Berlin, over the past 15 years he played for the the wildest fauna offered by the planet’s many nocturnal jungles. Curious P learnt that the eternal act of dancing is one of the most active forms of contemplation. It is through his open and eclectic selections that Curious Paul turns his dancefloor into a space of self-discovery and musical transe-en-dance. These days, he runs a few records labels including Possible Futures and practices the Tombak in his Kreuzberg treehouse. His musical worldview takes in everything from EBM to Disco, from House and Global Rhythms to the best Synth Pop from the world around.

Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable or did I become miserable because of pop music?
After an incredible first showcase by Stratosphera Records at OHM Berlin, we are more than ready and happy to announce the next event hosted by the label!

Owner Gabriele Salerno aka T KODE will open the dancefloor playing the groovy and tribal sounds we love him for, getting the crowd ready for this very special night.
No long introduction needed for this outstanding line up: Stanislav Tolkachev (Semantica Records / Subsist records), Kwartz (Pole Group) and BEAT MOVEMENT (Aine / Stratosphera Records) will take you on a trip you don’t want to miss.

We guarantee you’re in for a treat

Can you hear pure movement? A force that's capable of shattering the foundations of our sonic and physical perception? With his background in the raving underground scene of Bristol as well as a degree in architecture, PAUL PURGAS surely is no stranger to ground-shaking experiences.

With his duo project Emptyset, PURGAS examines the material properties of sound and what it can do to space. The results of this research have been published on the labels Raster-Noton, Thrill Jockey, and Emptyset's own Subtext Recordings. PURGAS's work as a musician and fine artist has been exhibited at Tate Modern and the Whitechapel and Serpentine Galleries in London, among other institutions. We haven't even started to get into detail about his qualities as a curator, writer and researcher, and there's more. The best kept secret of all his prolific activities is that PURGAS is an amazing DJ. His rare and highly energetic sets are yet another way to explore the relationship between rhythm, space and movement.

Fine artist AIKO SHIMOTSUMA grew up in a Buddhist temple in Japan. As a child, she often watched a wooden log hitting the sacred bell outside of the building and was deeply touched by its vibrations. She draws inspiration from the experiences in this special environment for her installation work that's centered around the topic of the inner sanctum. Shudder and fascination are transformed into dualities: solid and liquid, transparent and opaque, light and shadow.

Movement is also at the core of YUKIHIRO TAGUCHI's work, who often reflects on processes of transformation through stop motion videos and objects that are in a state of flux. The cardboard sculptures of CARLY FISCHER on the other hand deal with the fragility of our environment as well as our perception of the world. KOOKOO's hosts MIEKO SUZUKI and ARA will be happy to get into detail about it – and to tell you how they play their music.

Let's go KOOKOO!
Fast becoming a regular fixture of Superbooth, this year our club night is happening at OHM Berlin. We’re bringing along a collection of artists and friends, including CUCKOO and Projekt Dataline, as well as our own Alex Jann, -CALC- and Danny Nugent (@slowclapmusic) between them serving up a diverse range of dance and electronic music 'til the early hours.

Warming up for them will be Berlin DJ a/fin, and if you’ve got a ticket to Superbooth, you get in for free!
The idea behind Fluid is to open a new platform in the heart of Berlin nightlife, introducing great DJ talents hand-picked for their work in underground musical scenes in their hometowns.

The venture is a collaboration between Berlin based label Fever AM and booking agency Higher Ground Berlin, alongside the new agency Arab DJ League, which aims to represent the finest electronic DJ's of the Arab World.

In their first event at OHM Berlin they will be hosting two Palestinian DJ’s: Rojeh of the Jazar Crew - فريق الجزر collective and founder of Harara, Palestine's first electronic label, and Sami Zibak - Dj Page, a house DJ and educator, who has been working for many years on rooting House music, Disco & Queer subculture in his local Palestinian underground scene.

A special duo of supports will also be appearing in the form of two DJ's and producers very familiar to Berlin's music scene: Mor Elian (Fever AM) & Special Guest TBA (Whities).

Join us for a night of discovery and true love for music and togetherness.
