technically the area where the pictures were taken is called gesundbrunnen, but to me this area is also wedding.
“Wedding is a locality in the borough of Mitte, Berlin, Germany and was a separate borough in the north-western inner city until it was fused with Tiergarten and Mitte in Berlin's 2001 administrative reform. At the same time the eastern half of the former borough of Wedding was separated as the new locality of Gesundbrunnen.” (wikipedia)
but enough history, i personally have a twisted relationship with this area on the one hand i love the diverse faces of wedding and the various options of food, but on the other hand don’t like that there’s always a criminal vibe when i’m there. but you know that might be just me i still can recommend you going there and make your experiences and eat some delicious, mostly turkish and arabic, food. the reason why i started to visit wedding more frequently again is that my favourite club, panke, is located between the s-bahn stations wedding and humboldthain, which are easy reachable from the area where i live. the club is mainly focused on subcultural music and you won’t find yourself surrounded by the people that have to tell you how much they love techno but then go home and listen to taylor swift or ariana grande. (no front but you know it’s true)
when i was in london, last year, my friend glitch invited me to a party in dalston which was hosted by a good friend of him, sean, who is running a radio show called, stay cool. (soundcloud)
the occasion was the launch of the label’s compilation “stay cool vol. 1 & 2” and what can i say? it was a vibe!
mainly future beats, lo-fi hiphop and also my favourite genre uk grime.
the next day i decided to stop wasting the rare evenings, i spend in clubs, with having to listen to shitty music. that’s when a grime party at panke popped up in my timeline.
so, me and my friend johannes decided to go there and the rest is history!
without further due i’m going to show you the way i captured my favourite club in berlin and the area which it is located in.
hope you enjoy!
