Pfingsten, or Pentecost, is all about the spirit, and, coupled with the idyllic weather, this weekend sees Berlin’s spirits elevated beyond its usually grey, grubby self. Starting off at .HBC tonight, local label PAN will be celebrating Heatsick’s release “Déviation” alongside a roster that’s equal parts London and Berlin. Joining his live performance will be NHK’Koyxen, Lee Gamble and Geoff Mullen presenting warped rhythms and beats, barely containable inside a time-signature. But Saturday and Sunday take things out in the open, where Wax Treatment goes back to its ancestral roots with its Africa Special, presenting talents including Appleblim, Shackleton, Mark Ernestus and the Analog Africa Soundsystem.
Just let the sun drag you out, and the music pull you in.
