Meoko is excited to report from Berlin where some of the most revelating musicians and their audiences come together, to give you an insight about interesting new developments within the scene. In this context, we would like to introduce you to the Night Embassy, a Jägermeister-sponsored concept, the core idea of which is to celebrate emerging electronic music culture in an international context; basically, the only embassy on this planet where people from all over the world can jam and party together all night long.
On December 13th, the masterminds behind the Embassy concept conjure a really special final event row by announcing country-based showcases, including a Latin-American showcase, represented by Musikplatz. Der Musikplatz is a Jägermeister-sponsored music platform which showcases emerging talent from Latin America. The driving forces, some very capable musicians and creatives from Mexico, manage to gather artists from all over the continent, and present them in a professional context.
To take them abroad, namely to Berlin, is the latest coup, and for this special Jägermeister-powered night which is part of the Night Embassy programme which has been running since the end of September in the specially refitted Baumhaus Bar location right next to Watergate, they got Alejandro Bernal from Colombia and Rene Roco from Chile, Metrika, Roderic, Evil Tapes and Ulises, to name but a few.
The event is created to provide a laid-back backdrop for the musicians to play together and fuse their crafts and musical vibes. The jam where musicians present their live projects will smoothly transition into a party that kicks off at 11 p.m. to showcase those talents from Latin America and Berlin that manage to create a synergistic dynamic and perfectly capture both worlds’ spirits by building musical and cultural bridges. As this is Musikplatz’ first showcase in Berlin, it is amazing to hear that it will be repeated every year to reinforce the idea of cultural exchange.
The Night Embassy’s concept draws inspiration from both Jägermeister’s own heritage and the free and unbridled creativity of Berlin’s celebrated nightlife and art scene. It unites artists based in Berlin from all backgrounds, ages, genders and level of experience, and has so far showcased six individual crews and collectives from Berlins, such as Pansy, Sweetest Taboo and Move.Unltd, most of which are intersectional. Now culminating in a string of international closing showcases including South Africa, Austria and China, this is bound to find its way into any sorted Berlin nightcrawler’s agenda.
