Yippee ki-yay melonfarmers! Our blog familitary is regrouping on Friday to lay down a carpet-bombing of hip hop and RN’B classics from the golden era of the 90s and 00s. Back at Fluxbau, Blog Party 3.0 will feature banging sets from Lucy vs. the GlobeNordic by NaturePonydanceclyde and Demons Galore, as well as your friendly überlin selecta! We have 5 x 2 guestlist spots to give away – scroll down for your chance to win. But before that, I should warn you that  lately I’ve been listening to lots of UK garage, grime, two step… woteva you call it.

Let me kick you off with this classic UKG video…

…which for some reason, doesn’t feature this leg end:

überlin on the radio!

I’m going to be on the radio! Berlin Community Radio is the only radio station we actually listen to live, as it features a number of awesome shows from people we love: our mayyyyyyyyte Lucy vs the Globe, French Ana’s excellent edit of upcoming concerts LIVESICK and Post Flashback, which I’ll be guesting on next week.

Host Adrian describes Post Flashback as playing “music that we may have forgotten about to spark a rush of nostalgia”. If you want to get genre specific (you nerd), that means post punk, post-hardcore, indie, shoegaze and more… but the descriptive that’s been inspiring my playlist is “sad dad music”. Zum Bespiel:

If you want to hear the tracks that make me and Mike from White Trash indie punk rock night Demons Galore cry into our pints, tune into Berlin Community Radio on Monday 18th November at 5pm – click “Going” on this Facebook event so you don’t forget. Oh, and you can tell me what you want to hear by adding tracks to this Spotify playlist – I’M TAKING REQUESTS!

Post Flashback on Berlin Community Radio – with guests überlin and Demons Galore
Monday 18th November, 5pm – 7pm
