Music Montag: Best of Berlin 2013

by James Glazebrook

What have EnyaFleetwood Mac, Chris Isaak, Rihanna, M.I.A, Destiny’s Child and Kendrick Lamar got in common? Nope, they haven’t formed a Gayngs-style supergroup (we wish!)… but all of them have had tracks covered or remixed by überlin’s Music Montag picks for 2013. Here’s two hours of our favourite music made in and about Berlin this year, from electro to acoustic, from heavy heavy metal to fat dirty bass. Enjoy 🙂

Feeling nostalgic? Listen to the Best of Berlin 2012 here.

SDC are a German-New York duo producing deep, soulful electronic music carrying the promise of “RN’B realness” since back in 2011. They are teasing us with rumours of a first release on BPitch Control, and have just confirmed for this year’s MELT! Festival. If you can’t wait to hear more, listen to snippets of their tracks on their SoundCloud, and check out this nice little interview video:
