about

"PostOst was a DIY artist and musician’s co-op established in 2003 in a former East Berlin post office in the district of Friedrichshain. It was a home to some 100 artists making techno, house, acid, avant-garde, R&B, trancerock, wave and rock & roll, as well as painting, sculpture, graphic design, illustration and video. The co-op’s basement also hosted the Ruf Mich Nie Wieder An (“Don’t Ever Call Me Again”) techno and drum & bass parties.

Last year, PostOst and the neighbouring Deutsche Telekom building were purchased by real estate mogul Udo Schlömer, CEO of Berlin’s largest tech incubator and co-working space, Factory Berlin. Factory is financially backed by Google and houses SoundCloud, Twitter and Uber, as well as a host of emerging startups. Soon after the purchase of the former post office, all of the artists were evicted. After being confronted in public, Factory realised that the move had the potential of making them the Berlin tech-world boo-man, especially considering the current discourse on how art, music, club- and subculture are what made the city attractive to investors and techies in the first place. Since then, Factory and PostOst have taken part in a series of discussions for building a three-floor addition on top of the post office for the artists that are currently studio-less. Ultimately, Factory do not want to come across as destroyers of Berlin subculture. While a core group of PostOst co-op members have worked intensely to push forward the plans for the addition, Factory and Udo Schlömer have yet to agree to the proposal."

Acute, death-touch drum’n’bass from man like Mark's first outing for A Colourful Storm. Two exercises in deftness: open wires buzz, squeak and weave through static and space; whiplash snares strike with front-foot intent. Both fracture and collapse under swaggering, don't-look-back sub-bass pressure.

"Politics is very in these days, got the PR campaign sorted. Pizza?"
