Soulful Reggae Sundays with Panza and Friends

Most of us will be in this area rather rarely, but a visit of this beergarden in Berlin-Charlottenburg is highly recommended on Sunday. Panza will be joined by friends and play his favourite tunes from LPs, singles and physical Dubplates while you can grab a Guiness from tap, a nice cocktail or whatever beverage of your choice.

26.6.2023 - Mortimer and Band live in Berlin

26.6.2023, 8pm, Badehaus
Revaler Str. 99, 10245 Berlin

There is quite a lot going on this weekend besides Reggae Rumble.

On Friday the Sub Pressure Band is playing alongside Berlins Rub-a-Dub talents Longfingah, Tonto Addi und Yugo Taguchi at Schokoladen, Hotta Henne and Roots Daughters play tunes for the Aftershow Party. Starts at 8pm.

We recommend a visit of the Blessed Love / Buyreggae Record Store on Saturday in the early evening. Helmut Philipps will present his book “Dub Konferenz – 50 Jahre Dub aus Jamaika” at 6pm – most likely in German though. Afterwards the developer, Young Veteran from Cologne will introduce their Simba Mini Soundsystem.

Another reading from the beforementioned book and music selected by Young Veteran, Leipzig’s Plug Dub Soundsystem selectors and Siren Sisters can be hear at Dubcafe on Sunday from 6pm. For this rather new, more or less regular event, Tom Battery und Yugo Taguchi bring the Superpower Soundsystem to Club Gretchen – the perfect end for a long Reggae-weekend.

18.2.2023 - Hillbilly Hifi in SpaceOur friend David introduced his Hillbilly Hifi a few months back but never held a proper dance in Berlin until now. This one will be special, the venue is themed like a spaceship. No worries, no cosplay expected we were told. We love the cute artwork, check out the nerdy Video-Teaser, too!

31.7.2022 - Soulful Sundays with Panza

Soundsysten with Crown - 10 Years

On February 11th, 2012 we introduced Maratone Long Distance HiFi to the world. Well, at least to some people who liked Vintage Jamaican Music and came to our very first Rock Steady Ballrom in the backroom of a no longer existant Pub in Berlin. Nothing went as planned that night but we had some hours of fun and built the foundation for another pillar of Soundsystem Culture in Berlin. Looking back we can be quite proud of countless events with amazing selectors and even some Jamaican Legends playing on the sound and are very satisfied with the pressure and unique sound we can deliver nowadays.

With venues closed for a few more weeks it is rather difficult to plan a proper Anniversary Dance with the full sound. We are busy behind the scenes and are positive that the Soundclash in August will take place. We’ll keep you posted on other events should restrictions be lifted and something work out on short notice. Until then we’d like you to join us for a livestream on twitch to celebrate on the Maratone Living Room HiFi with the full crew contributions by our friends from all over the world:

Do you remember the 21st Aniversary of the Reggaexplosion powered by our Soundsystem? They missed their 23rd and 24th Aniversary because of the lockdown and we dearly missed this monthly mayhem. But finally, the ReggaeXplosion is back and the Carib Crew will have a special guest for the restart: Count Crophead from Hamburg is not only an organiser of Treasure Sounds, a fantastic Allnighter at Hafenklang, but also a die-hard collector of Jamaican Oldies.
