there have been some beautiful changes in scenery since i left egypt: a quick jump to amsterdam to see the new permanent exhibition at the van gogh museum, and a short flight up north to oslo (and a tiny little bit of snow) for a tour of propeller recordings and the p3gull awards, which featured performances by highasakite and team me!

between those two trips i did a story on the first telekom music talent space in berlin (full article, in german, at popmonitor). however, the real player in this game was the location…

the funkhaus berlin nalepstrasse has everything a forlorn building needs to be properly exploited by the hipster crowd. yet that’s not bound to happen: gatekeeper and watchdog antony hequet is no friend of that scenario and will rent out his spaces only to people who he feels will appreciate the place and bring quality to it. it was therefore with the greatest pleasure that i accepted his frank invitation for a personal tour that eventually took us to parts of the vast area even antony himself had never set foot in. and boy, it was beautiful!

all of which stresses the exclusivity of the following photographs, which were taken by the immensely talented nora römer. you won’t find these – or similar ones – anywhere else…
