The second part of my review of 2012 is dedicated to the best events and performances I attended this year. Part I was published some weeks ago and includes the preferences of our followers.
Top 3 Events
The best party I attended in 2012 was the IFM Nacht @ Panorama Bar (Berlin) in 5th of May with DJ TLR, Orgue Electronique (live), I-F, Intergalactic Gary and Sven von Thülen. This year we had no emotions entering Sven’s door, so we enjoyed every moment of the 12 hours musical marathon.
For me the highlights were Orgue Electronigue‘s live act and the dj sets of Intergalactic Gary and TLR.
Next is the Tresor Night @ BeCool (Barcelona) on June 16th. I was looking for a long time for a good old techno party and my thirst was satisfied that night in Barcelona.
DJ Deep provided a very good warm up set showcasing his Deeply Rooted House label and Redshape made his usual live-act. But the cherry on top was the master Mike Huckaby playing a banging Detroit techno set that was mesmerizing me for hours.
Finally, an other good party was the Versatile Night at Rex Club (Paris) on March 17th.
Legowelt made a nice dj set, but top of my list was the Berlin techno that Mike Dehnert played.
