Playlist: DJ Amir's arkaoda warmup
Hip-hop historian DJ Amir shares some dancefloor heat.
Saturday, February 26th, 17:00-midnight at Oona, Weserstr. 166, Berlin.
Berlin non-profit collective Open Music Lab (OML) will hold a release party for their new EP Quanta. Running from 17:00 until midnight, the event will include live music and DJ sets from OML students, mentors and more.
Quanta (now available via Bandcamp) is OML’s second release, following Redox, which showcased the work of students taking part in OML’s 5-month music production course. Featuring music from students and mentors, Quanta celebrates the ‘musical bond and creative collaboration that comes out of the community.’ Each track on the release is produced by an OML student and accompanied by a remix by one of their mentors.
At the release party, Iranian percussionist Kimia Bani will perform a unique ambient improvisation alongside OML co-founder Ben Osborn. Berlin-based artist Tarablisi, whose music appears on Quanta, will perform a live set. There will also be DJ-sets from OML mentors Vio PRG and Leibniz, as well as OML students morphena and Abed Alfakir, who both produced tracks for the release. Food will be provided at the beginning of the event by Emma Robertson.
