Event Details

REEF's after-hour slayers Elissa Suckdog, Enchanted Rhythms and Dan Beaven are joining forces to launch a naughty Thursday night. WAYS invites serious deejays who specialise in banging breakbeats, greasy garage, tech-house bombs and minimal with a UK edge to Griessmuehle's Silo.

Our first guest ticks all those boxes. Desert Sound Colony runs the red-hot record label Holding Hands, which connects classy-and-quirky contemporary minimal with Britain's decades-old tradition of beefy club sounds. His own recent productions are a consummate blend of in-vogue styles—garage, UK tech house, minimal—that also bear his personal creative eccentricities. Most importantly, DSC is an absolutely killer selector who cuts a winding road through all the aforementioned sounds.

He hasn't been to Berlin since he smashed Panorama Bar back in January, so now's your chance. So... What Are You Saying?


WAYS is Elissa Suckdog, Dan Beaven and Enchanted Rhythms, three fast friends who hold down the after-hours parties at Griessmuehle for Darwin's ambitious UK-oriented night REEF.

Elissa Suckdog hosts Cashmere Radio's Texture Mix series. Enchanted Rhythms unearths rare UKG and 2-step gems via his eponymous platform and radio show. He also co-runs the party DBRS with Dan Beaven, one of Berlin's most adept and creative selectors with a natural talent for bending & blending speeds and styles. The trio pushes a distinct and fresh mix of 2-step, breakbeat, minimal, rave, house and beyond.

The thread running through the melodic, visceral tracks touch on a sense of melancholy present within us all. Occupying a space somewhere between ‘60s Psychedelia and the pulsating sounds of future-clubs, Desert Sound Colony is both infectious and ethereal, shrouding the listener in a gentle, rhythmical canopy. The project’s debut EP, 'The Way I Began', is... View More
