The gents of Hamburg based label institution Poker Flat came for a 07/07/07 gathering to Watergate. Everything resulted in an extremely wicked label showcase, which had the typical “Berlin open end” influence. That day two quite energetic warm-up sets were awaiting the lads and gents visiting glassmade techno ballroom having vista to river Spree and bridge Oberbaumbrücke. On the Water Floor DJ Argy kicked off everything. Also the water terrace had been opened to offer an even more relaxing ambience. Soon the program on the main floor started as well, with Patrick Gräser dropping the first tunes of the night. Both DJs controlled their dance floor very well until first caesura, which was 3:00a.m. Everything had been well prepared to be taken over from Martin Landsky on the Water Floor and a live act of Märtini Brös. on the main floor.
Lots of Berlins flocked in to use their chance to catch up with Clè and Mike Vamp, to see them playing their inimitable performance which featured lots of electronic influences spiced with classic instruments such as an e-guitar. At about 4:00 in the morning Steve Bug was waiting in the wings. He had to sit on the fence though as both Märtinis “insisted” on delivering two highly demanded bonus tracks, which they didn’t play live in the past years.
After them Steve pulled all stops and his groovy house and techno selection took the roof off. While outside beam by beam the sun seized control of the night to paint the Oberbaumbrücke with morning colours, inside Mr. Bug kept the fire burning for more than 3 hours to finally hand over everything to Guido Schneider. Soon another open end specialist showed up to take over the Water Floor: Phoniqe. He didn’t hesitate to serve up his excellent deep house sound. Sunday, 12:00pm, the Watergate is surely still celebrating electronic music.
