Apparently some real voodoo magic happened at the techno-mekka Berghain this weekend. Lightning struck and shut down the power, which stopped the music for some minutes. After that, the aircondition was down and people apparently went insane! This is what the artists are saying about the night – which seems to have been legendary. If you were there, please throw in a comment and tell us about the experience.

Sunday evening at Berghain / Panorama Bar was simply incredible. It’s always amazing there, but this was one of my favourite sets i have ever played anywhere. The heat and energy from the crowd made it super intense, something i hadn’t felt that strong before. Thanks to Berghain, Enemy Records & ARTS and everyone who stayed with me on the 5 hr trip. To top it all off, lightning struck the building near the end of my set which caused all the lights to come on, it was a special moment…

The club was packed during the hottest day of the summer but around 22:45, a storm came through and lighting struck Berghain (Dax J brings thunder wherever he goes). The emergency power kicked in, which turned on every light in the house and killed the air conditioning. For 5 hours, the lights remained on and the place kept getting hotter with people ramming the dance floor going crazy to pär grindvik’s now legendary set. 10 minutes before I took over, they fixed the light situation and the crowd went crazy.

With the lights off, a new vibe took over and 3/4 of the dance floor was topless. There was no separation of class, sex or race: just skin, dancing, and great, positive vibes. During all my sets, I’ve never seen anything like this from the Berghain DJ booth before (snax excluded). Thank you to everyone who braved the heat and stayed late. And of course, thank you to Berghain and everyone involved in the planning process! Until next time!



Adrenalin is still running through my veins. Last night at Panorama Bar got burned into my memory. Lightning hit the building during my set, the sound went off for minutes, the air condition shut down completely, as almost all lights at the bar did. People took off their clothes because the place became a sauna, never saw so many topless girls and boys in a club. At Berghain the emergency light went on and couldn’t be switched off for hours. I will never forget that view from the iron stairs down on that ocean of naked flesh waving and pulsating. Wish i had a photo of that scenery, but, well, what happens inside these walls stays there and its good that it is the way it is! Thanks to everybody who came down for these memorable 4 hours and danced with me!
