But a transmediale would ne be perfect without the ClubTransmediale CTM.11. Extended Club Nights at Berghain and Maria am Ostbahnhof on the weekend of February 4–6 present an update on affairs in the ever-expanding club music universe. There’s a special focus on the diverse and continually shifting styles derived from the exploded genres of dubstep, grime and UK funky. Catch up with the latest developments on the UK scene around mastermind Kode9 at the big Hyperdub night at Berghain on Friday 4.2, when Darkstar, King Midas Sound, Ikonika, Cooly G and others among the label’s advance guard will test the membranes of Berlin’s premium sound system. Another special highlight is the Modeselektion night scheduled for Saturday, 5.2 in Maria am Ostbahnhof, compiled by Berlin’s own home-grown heroes of the bass line, Modeselektor, who invited along some of their talented cronies: the video collective Pfadfinderei, Jackmaster, Ben UFO, Cosmin TRG and Siriusmo. Other highlights include a Perlon night at Panorama Bar, club concerts by Swedish techno-minimalists The Field, French duo Zombie Zombie, and the young Cologne trio, MIT, who fuse Kraftwerk-inspired conceptual electronica with the cold wave aesthetics of Joy Division – and will present their latest album at the festival.
