*** The DISKO INTERNATIONAL – a safe place for dancing to good music from all over the world. For Everyone. All Night Long. Funk | Tropical | Rare Groove | Afro | Reggae | Dub | Disco | Boogie | Soul | From East, West, North, South and all the places and spaces in between. ***
WOW. Time really flies when fun is being had… and just like that, the little Nord Berlin dance turns 1! Created in autumn 2021 by Lucky Loop & Soulix. Looking for a place where people can dance to all kinds of music, from all over the world, without borders or travel restrictions, at Panke Club Wedding: The Disko International was born!
Massive Love, Thanks and Praise to all the people who have ever graced our dancefloor. Your community and interaction really makes the fun party magic, and without that energy, we would not exist. All the wonderful Dj guests who have helped us travel all over the world through the magic of music: Afreak, Kava, Mune Ra, Rena Volvo, Marian Tone, Ken Okuda, Femdelic, Sampology, Radio Hobo, thank you so much for your time spent, digging, selecting, understanding and connecting the vibes- we look forward to sharing more musical experiences with you all again asap. Of course massive love and shout outs to our door staff, the Panke staff and Sound personnel, it is always a pleasure and smooth sailing with you all.
Annnnnyway enough of that, onto this session of DISKO INTERNATIONAL #10…
You know what? We’re really spoiled for local music talent here in Berlin, but there are some people we love that just don’t play up our ways enough… Our guest often sneaks out of the city to play big south american sessions in Brazil with Selvagem, takes time to dig the Caribbean or Iberican peninsula and compile great compilations for Soundway and True Class, gets repeatedly asked back to session on Charlie Bones’ cult status DO!!YOU!! Radioshow, all while fielding hundreds of ‘TrackID?’ ‘wtf is this?’ requests from recent mixes… Sisters and Brothers! Adorn your ceremonial dance robes, limber up, it’s gonna be a special session because we got TRUJILLO in the dance!
If there’s anyone who can enrich the “dancing music from all over the world” ethos we have at DISKO INTERNATIONAL, Trujillo is our guy! Expect recent Brazillian finds, Central American hip shakers, Afro Zouk burners, Latin Street Soul Bangers, Alien Disco grooves, and many many many more ‘wtf is this’ tunes.

Disko International resident shipmates Lucky Loop, Soulix, and Kava on deck to steady the ship, and maybe just maybe… a few people bring music unannounced? Who knows? It’s a family celebration and that’s how we roll. We’re looking forward to seeing faces old and new, Dancing to music from all over the World at our fav lil Nord spot: PANKE.
Much Love and see you on Friday.

Fri 22.09.2023 | Stoic Music label night #3 @ Panke (Drum & Bass)
Underground Drum & Bass, in a club/bar hybrid location. Fair prices all around, good vibes and a proper soundsystem – what else do you need for the perfect night out?
For our third and last party this year we’d like to welcome a bunch of international artists from the UK to Berlin.
This time it’s the producer trio Lokal from Manchester and Armenez from Falmouth/Cornwall.
Lokal: Over the past few years, you may have noticed the shear number of collabs released between High Demand and Enigma, and because of this, it only seemed right they should form into one, and so in fitting with their own label’s theme, Off-License Records, Lokal was born.
As a trio, they are planning on heading in a new direction musically, not only releasing DNB and 140s, but covering the full spectrum of underground bass music, leaving no genre unturned. So here’s to a new beginning, and in their own words, Keep It Lokal!
Armenez: Ar Menez translates to Of The Mountain or Mountain, the words coming from the old Celtic Breton language. This should give you a good idea of where Armenez derives his influences.
To name history, nature, folklore, myth and music would be to throw a small stone across a great chasm of inspiration.
Usually known for his deep basslines and mysterious worldly atmospheres that can conjure stories whilst combining those with dark chaotic sounds that infuse his music with life and ferocious energy.
With support from some established names such as Skeptical, Amoss, Arkaik, Cretures and Ill truth you can be assured that whether on a line up or release Armenez will deliver.

“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!
Bikutsi | Ikoku | Bendskin | Marrabenta | Maloya | Shaangan | Montegènè | Kabiye | M’Balax Rap | Chimurenga | Salegy | Mahraganat | Singeli | Champeta | Kuduro | Congotronics | Ethio-Pop | Assiko | Ndombolo | Gumbe & more!

Game-Changers: The Game
🎲 Join Game-Changers Board Game Play & Participatory Theatre!
📅 Date: Thursday, 28 September 2023
🕖 Time: 19:00 – 22:00
🏛️ Location: panke.gallery, Gerichtstr. 23, Hof 5 13347 Berlin
🎉 Get ready for an evening of excitement and engagement!
Introducing Game-Changers: The Game, a public storytelling board game that blurs the lines between reality and simulation. The stage is set for a clash between Capitalists and Commoners as they battle it out to seize the hottest buzzwords of the new economy. And that’s not all – enter the interactive audience, known as “peerticipants”, who have the power to shape the game’s outcome in real time.
In the game, two teams that embody seemingly opposite discursive poles – for example Capitalism vs. Commonism, Green Growth vs. Degrowth, or Vectoralists vs. the Hacker Class – compete in creating compelling storylines about transformation in order to lay claim to playing fields consisting of real-world “new economy” initiatives and related ideas.
To create these stories, the teams must use the Challenge and Intervention cards available to them at a given time or respond to the cards already linked to particular playing fields. Another, third set of cards, Wildcards, is composed of “external” events which can offer unique windows of opportunity for either team or skew the balance in a number of ways.
Audiences (peerticipants) evaluate the players’ storylines in real time and, in doing so, affect their chance of success. As a peerticipant, you also have the option to contribute prompt cards (prior to or during the event) for the players, making the game a dynamic knowledge commoning and scenario-building tool.
