Tried to see Convextion two weeks ago, but sadly he happened to play at the same time as the yearly Drumcode party at Berghain. Went there around 16.00 on sunday, expected maybe a 15-20 minute queue. Had to wait 1,5 hours in the end, I was fucking baffled. Never seen such a ridiculous queue around that time of the day. Then the wrong bouncer at the door and didn't get in. Oh well.
Went to a party at Ohm (used to be called shift) this friday, a small club next to Tresor. The lineup was very understated/local, the guys behind the LACK label, Metropolis (one half of Artefakt) live and a friend of mine. Warmup guy played fairly pleasant detroit-y midrange house and techno. The live was almost exclusively electro with a heavy acid focus but the acid was used in a deep/emotional rather than a harsh, energetic way. Very nice stuff, hope some of these tracks get released eventually. My friend played a fairly typical (for him) mix of old and new detroit-y, sometimes dark, sometimes bright, techno at fairly high speed (mid 130s). He even dropped this, which made me rush for an ID. Not every day that you hear old prog inbetween rather serious techno Turnout was fairly good for this type of night, even though it got emptier later on.
