After a very busy first half of 2017, Gretchen took a short summer break as usual. We have managed to fix some stuff wherever it was needed and to install and build some new things here and there. Also the staff had a moment to breathe before going back to work. Now that we have charged our batteries it is time to open doors again and party into the best time in this city, the Berlin summer season. Of course we have a special in store for you to celebrate the re-opening of Gretchen. Coming to play, on July 22, no other than the notorious Gaslamp Killer along with his and our close friend Kutmah!
William Benjamin Bensussen earned his stage name The Gaslamp Killer with his intense and very unique DJ sets, that he was playing in the clubs of the Gaslamp district in San Diego, California, where he grew up. After moving to Los Angeles in 2006, he became a household name known for his outstanding productions and impassioned and highly energetic live performances. Along with Flying Lotus and Mainframe he produced Gonjasufi’s debut album “A Sufi And A Killer” back in 2010. He also played all the major festivals around the world, for instance: the Coachella Festival, the Austin Psych Fest, the Wonderfruit in Thailand or the Voodoo Fest. Numerous singles, EP’s, guest appearances, mixes and 2 albums speak for itself. His latest LP “Instrumentalepathy” was released in September 2016 and just this month he released the music video “Sins: The Instrumentalepathy Album Film”. In not even two decades this man has almost reached the status of a living legend. On top of all he is a wonderful, positive and inspiring personality and we are always happy to have him coming over to play at Gretchen! Continue reading “Re-Opening after Summer break!”
