Atkins and Von Oswald keeping the beat alive in Berlin

edm_culture
Electronic Dance Music or EDM is here to stay. House music developed in the black night clubs of Chicago and Detroit in the United States in the mid-1980’s and has evolved since taking a whole new generation and countries, especially in Europe by storm.

In Germany, the band Juan Atkins and Moritz Von Oswald have been helping to link the beats of Detroit with the capital Berlin.

According to Moritz Von Oswald, in an interview with Electronic Beats, the idea of playing electronic music in the German capital was a brain storm of Dimitri from Tresor who got the idea to link the music being played in the USA in Berlin.

“He really pushed things forward. He was really into getting Berlin and Detroit to connect. Tresor worked on getting [music] well spread, and over boundaries,” said Von Oswald.

Moritz doesn’t necessarily describe himself as a techno person but as a “rhythmically interested” person and he wants to put a lot of things into his music such chords and harmony into his rhythms.

Juan Atkins came onto the season in the 1980s and started the association with Von Oswald in the 1990s. One of their most important collaborations is the album Borderland.

Podgorica Festival a hit

podgorica_festival

The Electronic Beats Fall Festival got off with a bang with the first festival in Podgorica in Montenegro (read here more news about Podgorica). Some of the acts in the lineup were Disclosure, Mount Kimbie, and Retro Stefson.

The event was staged in a small sports stadium with not so great weather as there were a few rain showers.

Retro Stefson opened the concert with high energy from the eight-piece synth-pop group presenting music from their latest self-titled album which was released earlier this year.

Mount Kimbie, who also released their second album earlier this year, and are currently on tour in Europe and the USA, contributed to an already party atmosphere with soundtrack from the musical duo of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos out of London.

The sibling pair of Guy and Howard Lawrence, otherwise known as Disclosure, had a good-sized crowd by the time they took to the stage. Still only a few months after they released their debut album, the pair were eagerly awaited by the soaking-wet Podgorica crowd.

The Electronic Beats Fall series will continue with concerts in Zagreb, Croatia and Dresden, Germany later this year.
