Highgrade meets Momento w/ Tom Clark, Todd Bodine and Idriss D at Amnesia Milano

Das erste Highlight 2013 gibt es dann schon gleich im Januar. Highgrade meets Momento im legendären Amnesia in Mailand.

Mit den Künstlern von Memento verbindet Highgrade jetzt schon mehr als nur die musikalische Gemeinsamkeit. Im Laufe des letzten Jahres sind Freundschaften und ein reger Austausch entstanden. Fabrizio Maurizi hat nicht nur einen Remix für Philip Bader´s Album beigesteuert, er war auch gleich beim dritten Part unserer \\\"Group of Connected Heads\\\" Serie vertreten. Natürlich war er auch zu Gast bei unseren Labelnächten in der Panorama Bar und im Stattbad Wedding.

Auf der anderen Seite hat Todd Bodine erst kürzlich erfolgreich eine EP auf Memento veröffentlicht. Und auch Tom Clark ist aktuell mit einem Remix für Labelboss Idriss D, auf Memento vertreten. Also beste Vorraussetzungen für eine tolle Party mit Idriss D, Todd Bodine und Tom Clark.

Highgrade Labelshowcase w/ Todd Bodine ,Tom Clark, Dachshund, Ilario Alicante @ Panorama Bar

On Friday 20th October we will once again be guests at the Panorama Bar. That in itself is always a good reason to party, but this time there is another one too. The release of Dachshund’s debut album on Highgrade Records. (Release date is 15.10.2012) 
As a DJ Dachshund has been showing off his skills for years, either as a resident of his own events in Genf or further afield in renowned clubs all over Europe, such as Fabrik in London.
As another guest we’ve also invited Ilario Alliance. Ilario is not only releasing music on Cocoon Records, but also regularly tours the world alongside Sven Väth and many other big names in the Techno scene and is currently working on an EP for Highgrade with Todd Bodine.
In support as usual will be the two co-label bosses Todd Bodine and Tom Clark.

Highgrade & Mobilee: BERLIN JAM SESSION ZURICH

Am 11. August besucht Berlin, Deutschlands Musikmetropole #1, die größte Stadt der Schweiz und hat neben bestem Sound elektronischer Couleur auch ganz viel echte Liebe im Gepäck. Mit jährlich rund 900.000 Besuchern ist die Zürcher Street Parade heute die bestbesuchte Techno Parade Europas und eines der sichersten und friedlichsten Großevents weltweit. In diesem Jahr werden Mobilee und Highgrade als Botschafter für ihre Heimatstadt antreten und gemeinschaftlich den Spirit, die Story und den Style von Kultlocations wie dem Berghain/Panorama Bar, dem Kater Holzig und dem Watergate in zwei der außergewöhnlichsten und schönsten Off-Locations der Stadt transportieren.

Zum warm up bespielen die beiden Berliner Labels exklusiv eine eigene Bühne auf der Street Parade von 14.00-24.00 Uhr. Die \\\\\\\"Berlin meets Zürich Stage\\\\\\\" (Stage Nr. 7) ist in der Nähe des Swiss Life Gebäude platziert und u.a. von Todd Bodine, Pan-Pot, Anja Schneider und Tom Clark bespielt.

Im Anschluss geht es wenige Gehminuten abseits der Paradenstrecke in der Alten Kaserne weiter mit Ray Okpara, Jens Bond, Anja Schneider, Pan-Pot und Gogo, während – nur einen Steinwurf entfernt und verbunden durch ein wundervolles Atrium – im Walcheturm das Highgrade Disharmonic Orchestra Live (Todd Bodine, Tom Clark, Philip Bader, Daniel Dreier), Sebo K, Mihai Popoviciu, Dachshund und der Züricher Sampayo den Takt angeben. Dabei sein wird zur Pflicht, wenn in dieser Nacht der Berliner Fernsehturm in Zürich akustisch eine neue Heimat findet und den Spirit der Hauptstadtszene live in die Alte Kaserne und den Walcheturm überträgt.

Vorverkaufstickets sind ab sofort erhältlich. Bitte sichere dir deine Karte frühzeitig, denn die Kapazität beider Clubs ist stark limitiert. Wir feiern auf zwei lauschigen Floors mit einem perfekten Sound System, starken Visuals und dem besten und neuesten Sound beider Labels. Wir freuen uns auf ein großes Club-Finale nach der Zürcher Street Parade mit euch.

Start : 10 PM – Straight after Street Parade!

Berlin lands in Zurich with pure love this August! With numbers rounding to 900,000 attendees yearly, Zurich’s Street Parade is currently the most attended techno parade in Europe and continues to be one of the safest mass events in the world. This year Highgrade und Mobilee will serve as Berlin’s electronic music ambassadors, jamming in unison as they bring the spirit, story and style of Berghain/Panorama Bar, Kater Holzig and Watergate to two central and beautiful off locations/warehouses just five minutes from the Street Parade action.

To warm up the club session the Berlin label crew exclusively got an official stage on the Street Parade course from 02.00pm-12.00pm. The \\\\\\\"Berlin meets Zürich stage\\\\\\\" (Stage No. 7) is based close the Swiss Life building and will be host DJ´s like Todd Bodine, Pan-Pot, Anja Schneider, Tom Clark and many more.

Highgrade at Berlin Beats and Boats

Hello all you land and water rats!
Once again this year, we’re going back out on the Spree. On Saturday 14.07.12 the annual Berlin Beats and Boats sets sail. In a very unique kind of water born parade, the whole Berlin club scene is united on the river Spree. The party takes place onboard a fleet of boats and Highgrade will again be launching our own river cruise. Our motto this year is “Colours”, to signify the diverse and colourful nature of our fair city. Non starters will be tied to the keel or run up the mast! No, of course the colourful theme is not an absolute necessity and all those bringing good vibes will be warmly welcomed on deck. Your ships crew of Tom Clark, Todd Bodine , Philip Bader, David K, and Jens Bond & Jacob Phono look forward to seeing you out on the sea. Check-in is at the Hansabrücke in Moabit at 12:00 midday. Departure is at 2pm. After we return there is also the official after party in Rummelsburg where, among others, Todd Bodine and Tom Clark will be giving it their all in a joint DJ set
Highgrade - Group of Connected Heads @ Club der Visonäre

Berlin is well known for it\\\'s many outdoor locations but none is more beautiful or unique than the Club der Visionäre. On the smallest dance floor in the city you can regularly find some of the world\\\'s most famous DJ\\\'s sharing the headphones.

Vinyl is still played here and this is a tradition we want to support. Almost no other place is more fun to play, standing in the middle of the dance floor and among the dancing crowds. In the sunshine and warm temperatures we look forward to dancing, drinking and chilling with you.
Highgrade Labelshowcase @ Panorama Bar

Next month has finally almost arrived. Highgrade will once again have the honor of filling the house with sound at Panorama Bar. And this time we’re also hoping the weather gods will be on our side because in addition to the club, the garden will be open at 10:00am Sunday morning.
As our special guest we have invited our Italian friend Fabrizio Maurizi, best known for his musical achievements on Minus and his own label, Memento. Highgrade newcomers Noah Pred and Claire Ripley will be supported by Philip Bader, David K and label bosses Todd Bodine and Tom Clark.

Highgrade Disharmonic Orchestra

26th of June at Watergate

In its 10 year history, Berlin label Highgrade has always been willing to experiment, and now it heads in another new direction with the “Highgrade Disharmonic Orchestra“. Friends and fans of electronic dance music will be presented with something different, and simplicity will be pushed aside for whatever the artists can imagine and create.

The “Hardware“ for a Live event like this is clear. What will be exciting in this show is the “Software“: Todd Bodine, Tom Clark, Markus Homm, Daniel Dreier and Dale aim to bundle their musical creativity and bring their audience closer to the Highgrade philosophy through the tracks they perform. In the foreground of Highgrade LIVE is the performance, pulsating rhythms will be the benchmark of quality.

This results will be presented on the 26th of June at Watergate. Very few locations could provide a better venue for the “Highgrade Disharmonic Orchestra“. The club, with its unique view over the river Spree, has been one of the places most important to the Highgrade family of artists over the last few years.

You could expect nothing less from this Berlin label, which has already enriched the club scene and the spectrum of electronic music in the city for 10 years through it’s releases and events.
Both individuality and creativity take center stage in the work of the musical front line.
Highgrade has never worried about contraints of genre or convention. The “Highgrade Disharmonic Ochestra“ is a gift to the faithful entourage on the dance floor, and is also the perfect proof that the label is always up for a surprise.

Not only is the performance of the “Highgrade Disharmonic Orchestra“ a premiere: the three hour live show will also be the live debut for Tom Clark, Daniel Dreier and Markus Homm. By their side are Todd Bodine and Dale, two “old hands“ who have proven themselves time and again in their own Live experience.

When you get an opportunity to perform for an entire night at Berghain and Panorama Bar, you should make every effort to make it a very special event. A partnership, a collabotarive connection, something lasting with music that makes this more than simply another memory of an amazing night out, or morning on the dance floor.

This is the philosophy behind the "Highgrade meets" series of events. What started in October with guests from French label, Freak n'Chic, continues on the 19th of December 2009 with the crew of Berlin label Highgrade, and their compatriots from Wagon Repair. Happily tired faces are assured for the following Monday morning.

The label founded in 2004 by Canadians Mathew Jonson and Konrad Black, brings with it internationally celebrated artists Dinky, Cobblestone Jazz and Deadbeat, and is known around the world for it's stunningly unique sound. This forms the perfect challenge for Highgrade, a label in constant development and one aiming for lofty goals in the near future.

Highgrade has also managed to secure another partner for the event: Online electronic music site WhatPeoplePlay, whose October relaunch has really shaken up the download market for digital music. As a special Thank You, every guest at "Highgrade meets Wagon Repair" will receive an individually numbered card which allows them to download exclusive tracks from both labels, completely free of charge. Highgrade has managed to persuade key artists from Wagon Repair: Mathew Jonson, Dinky, The Mole and Mike Shannon to make their music available for this special project. Highgrade artists Tom Clark, Todd Bodine, Simon Beeston, Homm & Popoviciu, Heinrichs & Hirtenfellner, Demir & Seymen and Daniel Dreier will contribute brand new tracks for free download, to make this truly a night of music to remember.

"With the events at Berghain, we want to demonstrate that it is possible to make a difference together" says Highgrade's Todd Bodine. Projects with other labels can create not only interesting musical combinations and promote new artists, they can also form a synergy that is very important for independent record labels. "we believe that labels should collaborate much much more with each other". When the collaboration produces such a great line up of artists, the rewards are even more clearly visible.
