In 2011 Mike Huckaby & Richard Zepezauer started the legendary first Sun Ra Sessions to give a regular platform to spiritual and free form music as according to Sun Ra’s universal approach.
This night features a non formulistic shape of music, there are no borders to pass, there is no you or me. This night is dedicated to music which captures the energy of the moment, a sonic message from outta space.
So far a small carefully chosen number of artists took part on this night to pay tribute to the musical genius and philosophy of Sun Ra and sessions took place all over the world from New York to Paris.
This time we are very happy to travel these spaceways with the fine companionship of Finland´s music legend that is Jimi Tenor.

True underground Techno/Electro legend Kimmo Rapatti aka Mono Junk is responsible for some of the earliest techno productions ever emanating from Finland.
His label Dum Records together with Sähkö Recordings were the first techno labels hailing from Finland. He will tickle us with one of his rare DJ Sets. expect an extraordinary selection.
The electro duo Morphology is known for their extremely skillful, soulfully emotional melodies.
They combine elements of techno such as acid and vibrant drums to traditional electro in their own signature style. They reached the status of one of the leading Electro Live act who operates on the cutting edge of what true Electro Funk is today.
The night will be rounded by one of a kind DJ S-Max, one half of the ElectroFunk label Boogizm, and of course berlin´s n s y d e mastermind and initiator Richard Zepezauer.
“Der Finne Kim Rapatti war Anfang der 90er Jahre mit seinen Platten als Mono Junk und Melody Boy 2000 einer der wegweisenden Produzenten eisigen Minimal Technos. Seine Tracks wie „Monotonous Fantastique“ oder das kürzlich wiederveröffentlichte „Beyond The Darkness“ waren stilbildend für nachkommende Generationen, dem Lauf der Zeit haben die Releases erstaunlich gut standgehalten. Dass sich Rapatti nicht auf einstige Pioniertaten ausgeruht, sondern in den vergangen Jahren so unberechenbare wie befreiende Techno-Jams auf Rat Life, Skudge und seinem eigenen Label DUM Records veröffentlicht hat, spricht für ihn. Heute Nacht live im Berghain zusammen mit einem Top-Techno-DJ-Programm, das mit u.a. Daniel Avery, Matrixxman, Radio Slave und den Zenker Brothers keine Wünsche offen lassen dürfte. In der Panorama Bar spielen u.a. das britische Deephouse-Duo Giles Smith und James Priestly alias secretsundaze, die vor 15 Jahren mit ihrer gleichnamigen Londoner Sonntagmittagsveranstaltung einen neuen Standard in Sachen Tagsüber-Clubbing setzen konnte.” http://berghain.de
Soon in records stores and boutiques near you. Includes Soulfull dub treatment “Cosmos Dub” latent/earlymorning jammer “Prince Of Helsinki” . Heavenly title track featured by Detroit´s own Niko Marks on vocals and Sven Weisemann´s remix straight from the garden of eden.
“Detroit’s Kevin Reynolds made a name for himself through Berlin’s Nsyde imprint with the all-conquering Liasions 12″ from 2011 which still sounds 100% fresh five years on! We are glad to see Reynolds back on wax and this 12” for Osunlade’s Yoruba Records comes as a mooted taster for his debut LP! Four tracks deep, Fembehyaget is just what we needed for this late-summer heat wave. “Dodging The Clip” is a bouncy, driving house chugger with a deep, dubby and almost Flo Po feel, but the title track “Fembehyaget” is much more in line with Osunlade’s usual bag of Afro-tribal tricks. On the B-side, “Travelled” sees a mid-tempo 4/4 beat engulfed by a sea of gorgeous synth sequencing, while “Vibe Samba” goes deep, minimal and explorative thanks to a glitchy drum sequence and sporadic layers of bass swarming the place.
