    Tried to gain entry to Trésor nightclub in Berlin last summer and as expected knocked back at the door. Heard all the stories about the techno clubs in Berlin and their ultra strict door policy but we tried around 4 clubs and didn't get in a single one.

    We were told to dress very minimalistic, keep calm in the queue and have some knowledge on who was playing that night but no luck. Anyone else experienced this in Berlin?
    I never went to Tresor but went to some brilliant hardcore nights in Germany in about 94, amazing venues, no idea even what towns we went to! still very underground scene, a lot different to Pure, and the Germans all seemed to be better dressed and not as off their faces as the Scots My daughter is into dance music now, and she went to Tresor last year, which is the most 'make you feel old' thing its possible to conceive of. I gave her my old Tresor mix tape and she looked at it like it was a phonograph

    I was going to start a similar thread, more of that in a minute. Pure and Wave were incredible nights to be at, (although a special mention should be made for the Sativa drummers). I was playing my 2 vinyl Pure albums at New Year. Picking a favourite band is almost impossible but Orbital are the only band that I can’t not go and see (If that makes sense). I was in Manchester to see them early December, it was incredible. You had to be there to believe the vibrations in the toilets. They are playing Brighton and Hull this year and I still need to organise time off work. Back on topic for a Pure classic.

    Now this would get me out of my seat in the East. I think Jochem is a son of Rotterdam.

    I moved to Düsseldorf in 92 and the scene was amazing. Some really good raves. Once saw Sven Väth DJ for about 14 hours in a warehouse. It really was 24/7 back then,I roadied for bands too, no wonder I'm a wreck now

    My mate was just there at new year. Said it is basically impossible to get in unless you are in a mixed group, ie no groups of lads. In terms of dress, he was wearing his kilt as he had been advised the opposite, dress in a way you stand out from the average crowd. Who knows what the rules are.

    He was at Berghain, apparently do what you like, apart from take photographs😂😂
    Been to both Watergate and Tresor, we were not in a mixed group and didn't have any issues with entry. We had a great night/early-morning in both, only place we got knocked back from was Weekend which was booked for a private event.

    Yes. Been waiting on a thread of this type popping up on here.

    Big into guys like Ricardo Villalobos, Mathew Jonson + DVS1 Techno wise, and Mr G, Derrick Carter + Gerd Janson on a more House music tip.

    Re: Berlin clubs, don’t bother until after breakfast if it’s all lads. Berghain / Panorama Bar truly is magical on Sunday afternoons.

    If I choose to revert back to Carlsberg it will have to be The Carlsberg

    Is the sound system really that good in Berghain? No photos allowed or no mirrors or reflective surfaces anywhere? Sounds a crazy, crazy place. I actually walked around it during the week once, shut however.

    Read an article in the rolling stone magazine saying it's been losing its way a little with all the tourists coming in, not as authentic as it once was.

    I’m sure it isn’t, where is once established. It was 4 years back when we went and it was all that I’d hoped for. Me & my girlfriend got in no problem and from recollection we never met anyone else that wasn’t living there.

    Wracking my brains who else was playing that night? We were lucky with an amazing line up as well as PAS but can’t mind.

    Sound system was very clean from what i remember.

    Never went to the ‘darkroom’ for obvious reasons. Everyone really sound & another thing i mind was everyone putting their empty bottles into crates (very tidy)..rolled into sunday (had 3hrs kip as i’m no spring chicken) and back to Panorama Bar....Things get more hazy but Mano LevTough played a storming set.
