We went out in search for the good life and all we got is this lousy greyscale dystopia. Europe and especially Berlin’s techno scene these days mainly focuses on the dark and brutalist aesthetics that take their cues from the mechanical and cold machine workouts of EBM and Industrial music. The other strain of techno, one that draws on the warm and stripped down funk of Detroit - the cousin of house - is given little attention on today's dancefloors .
Headroom works on reuniting the Berlin’s techno sound with the organic feel and dreaminess of its Motor City origins. The Berlin-based event series invites like-minded artists from all over the techno spectrum and it's adjacent genres to celebrate the past, the now and the futures to come. At the intersection of Berlin’s vibrant inner city and the peaceful suburbia surrounding it, Headroom takes its audience eight stories high because elevating is what it’s all about.
