Tag der Clubkultur (‘Club Culture Day’) was launched on the initiative of Berlin‘s Senator for Culture, Klaus Lederer, highlights the diversity and importance of Berlin‘s club culture in times of an existential crisis. As part of this showcase festival on October 3, 2020, up to forty clubs and collectives be rewarded for their contributions to Berlin’s club culture in recent years or even decades. On this day, each club and collective will present itself and the diversity and liveliness of Berlin’s club culture to the whole City.

YAAM is one of the venues rewarded and participating and we are glad to announce that our Rhythm Ruler is part of the Lineup. He will play records on the Lion’s Den Soundsystem alongside operator and owner of the Sound Ras Lion, Roots Daughters and Selektor Bony.

Summer is in full swing and what could be better than a soundsystem session by a lake? Our friends from the Freedom Fighter Soundsystem will string up a small set and invited DJ Goldfinga and Rattle Tone Discotheque to play records with them at Strandbad Plötzensee this saturday. Check the facebook event for more information.

To support the clubs that are heavily affected by the Corona-shutdown the Clubcomission Berlin initiated a daily livestream from various clubs in cooperation with arte. Two of our DJs played at YAAM for this cause. Find The Rhythm Ruler with a strictly Jamaican Oldies set right from the start and Panza with a modern selection representing Supersonic at 2:30h.

It’s been a while since The Rhythm Ruler recorded a mix and with the current circumstances there is more than enough time for it, so here you go. Starting with some recently released Ska on the Rock-A-Shacka label he takes you on a journey from the mid-sixties to the mid-seventies and added a recent production he plays on heavy rotation lately. All original 7″ records as always with some of them being released for the first time this or last year. Read more

It was soundclash time once again in Berlin, this year happening in early fall at Badehaus. Despite the crazy prices for flights and hotels caused by another “Marathon” event, people travelled from all corners of Europe to witness this night. Our Soundsystem was set up in record time, due to a live show in the same venue that only ended 1 hour before. But as soon as the basslines did bubble through the speakers all those hectic moments were forgotten.
Before the war started it was time for the Prince Of Peace from Munich to warm up the place (not that it was was needed with 30degrees Celcius inside). He did an excellent job and got all feet dancing on the wooden floor. Read more

We are not sure how many days the longest Reggae! Steady! Soul! event counted, but in some years it seemed like an endless week of dancing and drinking. This year everyone steps back a little and the Carib Crew and Marc Forrest only run the famous ‘Böllerama‘ with a Reggae and a Soul floor on NYE. A great lineup with guest DJs from north and south of German is confirmed: Frank Upsetter and Jacqueline Hyde are coming from Hamburg and The Prince of Peace will bring his records from Munich. Local Old Fashioned Rudeboy ‘The Wickeder’ will join them and the Carib Crew behind the decks.

We don’t expect to hear many oldies on that night and most likely there will be a good amount of UK Dub / Steppas played. If you don’t mind these modern developments of original bass music we strongly recommend this event. 4 soundsystems inna de arena, this rarely happens.
