Sprockets-Wave Alert: Berghain Resident Answer Code Request Plays Shelter on Thursday
By Feb 17, 2016 Nightlife
Berlin's infamous Berghain club is like, the techno castle in the whole wide world, and several theoretical digital planes of existence as well (Tron City... The Matrix...The Thirteenth Floor... um... the Dejitaru Wārudo). Just getting into the place is an art and a science, the bathrooms have no mirrors, and people stay all weekend. One of their resident DJs, Answer Code Request, is making his Shanghai debut on Thursday night at Shanghai's own castle of underground music, The Shelter, courtesy of the Bassment crew.

The Shelter has mirrors, allegedly.

Answer Code Request grew up in Fürstenwalde, the same hometown as techno icon Marcel Dettman. According to an XLR8R interview, the two met at the local skatepark when they were 13, and years later Dettman released Answer Code Request's anonymous first trax. Those sold out quick, and he's since done mixes for Resident Advisor and Rinse FM and released a well-received debut album on Ostgut Ton. Here's a nice intro to his unique, ambient-heavy sound.

And a Boiler Room mix…

Should be a great night if you're into ze teck-noh, ja. Support from James Lealand B2B Another Pawn, Donn, NMLSS, and VJ Chromaphase, whose films we covered a few weeks back. The other member of Bassment -- Steven Lorenz -- will be there in spirit, but look out for an appearance by him in Shanghai sometime this year. Cover is 50rmb; 10pm start. More info in the event listing.
