“African Beats & Pieces” is an event series in Berlin dedicated since 2017 to the music made in Africa and throughout its global diaspora.
With a focus on lesser-known artists, we strive to showcase the diversity of sounds and songs African and Afro-diasporic musicians have to offer, doing so through theme-specific parties involving passionate DJs & diggers.

For our third shindig this year, we amp it up a notch and try out a fun new concept: the party’s speed will accelerate through the night, increasing by 10 BPM per hour. We curated a line-up with different DJs each hour whose style & selection match the speed range.
Join us on this dancefloor journey to get up to speed with the latest exciting non-mainstream songs and sounds from Africa and its far-reaching diaspora!

Reggae and Ska Fans aufgepasst! Im Oktober kommt ein dickes Paket direkt zu euch. In Sachen 60s Reggae und Ska absolut einmalig und sensationell. Drei Ausnahme Acts geben sich an einem Abend voller hoch energetischer Performances die Mikros in die Hand ! Aus den Niederlanden der unangefochtene Schwergewichtsweltmeister im Early-Reggae: THE UPSESSIONS aus Amsterdam verwöhnen Auge und Ohr mit dem Besten aus über 15 Jahren Bandbeschichte.
Eine weitere Sensation in diesem Reggae und SKA Circus ist das neueste Baby von Producer Schlitzohr Boudewijn van Trigt besser bekannt als BOSS CAPONE der sich mit der bezaubernden PATSY ein wahres Juwel in seine Band geholt hat und das Publikum mit fulminanten Duo Einlagen bezirzen wird.
Als wäre das nicht schon genug wird das Programm mit dem gemeinsamen JUDGE DREAD MEMORIAL , einer der wohl schillerndsten Reggae Revues dieser Tage mit dem unglaublichen PRINCE OF RUDENESS abgerundet, der neben den alt bekannten Hits des berüchtigtsten Reggae Sängers der Welt auch seine neue Singel “WHAT A BIG THING” zum Besten geben wird. Manege frei !

The event takes place on the 5th of October starting at 20:00:00.
To appropriately celebrate the Day of Club Culture with our community, we have put together a special line-up. Our focus is on the fundamental state of human existence, and we take the liberty to look back into our childhood, where we experienced the feeling of freedom and took joy in simple, silly things. With our line-up, we aim to revive this feeling. It offers a diverse blend of DIY, krautrock sounds, modular synthesizers, and a broad stylistic range. We remain consistently ironic and offbeat, without losing sight of true artworks that reflect the never-lost inner child.
Chris Imler likes to play drums standing up. He‘s the dandy with the killer offbeat, or, as one major German newspaper once put it, the “Grand Seigneur of the Berlin Underground”. He has been making his mark on countless Berlin musical affairs since long before the fall of the Wall, with The Golden Showers, Peaches, Oum Shatt, Driver and Driver, Die Türen,
Jens Friebe, to name but a few. He has also been perfoming across Europe as a solo artist for the past decade.
DLIGHT is the most recent project from Martí Guillem. Martí is a tireless creator, who has presented his various projects and workshops throughout Europe, in the most heterogeneous spaces, ranging from institutional spaces, to museums, universities, galleryes and contemporary and experimental music festivals, to clubs for electronics, squat proyectsses and raves.
His fresh work is in constant evolution, expressing a restless mind that is between the construction of objects and instruments, performative pràxis and sociocultural dynamism.
DLIGHT is based on the sinestesic effect light-sound-light. Diferent artefacts are created with the posibility of controlling diferent kind of light and sound parameters that efect eachother. A poetical and hipnótical experince out of standarts.
In control of each and every facet of his plural universe, from sound itself to visuals, through live installations, Maoupa weaves an environment in constant reformation, putting playfulness and exploration at the heart of its priorities. Unpredictable to the bone, the music of Maoupa Mazzocchetti raises more questions than answers, bringing with each record lot of new wrinkles and unsuspected turns, whether solo or via his various collaborations.
SPAR HORNET & NIL WU MING
SPAR HORNET & Nil Wu Ming is a high-octane noise:drone:spoken word:performance art project with roots stretching back 15 years ago to NYC. Frank Ficano (Nil) creates brooding atmospheres offset by interjections of live bass, drum machines and modular synths. Rasp Thorne (SPAR) provides vocals, raw and processed, with a slightly unhinged, improvisational stage show of sorts. The dynamic duo returns to Berlin with a feisty set of freshly formed sonic destruction.
BORN IN FLAMEZ
Shirking notions of identity, Born in Flamez subverts gender and genre with a panoply of influences somewhere in the nether regions between deconstructed pop, club sounds, lofi, grime, and classical music.
The non binary artist has released tracks on LA based label FoF, Mexico’s Infinite Machine, Monkeytown and UnReal and collaborated with the likes of Modeselektor, Health, WWWings, Robot Koch, Muxxxe and Quest?onmarc.
Recently, BIF has been touring a new hybrid live show based on their 2019 records Suriving Capitalism (FoF), and Dinosaur Shakedown and featuring unreleased material from their upcoming album. Early 2019 saw them touring Europe with US noise institution Health and release a remix record and a FACT magazine best of club rated Single. Later in the year they toured with US cult-‐rapper BBYMUTHA and worked on collaborative work
EMPATHY NOW. 2020 saw them reinterpret Schubert, and develop, film and edit “Body Politics”, a digital commission for CTM Festival and Festspielhaus Hellerau and finish their new album – coming out in 2021. The album comes with an interactive live show, featuring 2 dancers, a whole lot of plastic waste and sharp political comment.
Borm in Flamez also co–curates renowned CTM Festival.
Characterized by the multi-layered nature of Japanese pop culture, YUI’s DJ set experiments trampoline between J-pop to choral music, bootlegs to jazz, spoken word to chiptunes— delivering inexpressible emotional layers. She hosts radio shows and upcoming small cave events named no fake id, which only aim to represent real ids.
