 Cop razzia at Tresor Berlin (updated) (31/08/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)
The facts:
Last saturday, the Berliner Police Department did a large Razzia at Tresor, Leipziger Straße (between Berlin centre and Krauzberg, in the Wertheim department store next to Potsdamer Platz). Over 400 customers have been controlled, 16 of them have been arrested for drug use and went to the Police headquarters, as well as one more who was already wanted. The club has been immediately closed and remained closed until the Monday 8 September.
Open since 1991, the Tresor is one of the few leading European clubs in the Techno scene. It has and always had numerous international deejays as residents at his decks, such as Blake Baxter, Jeff Mills, Juan Atkins, Robert Hood or Carl Cox, but also a whole list of German talents like Tanith, Jonzon, Rok, Kid Paul, Pacou, Jorg, and many more. Not even speaking about those who came just once... it's almost the whole phonebook of the Techno planet. Now it's alternatively a Techno, House or Drum'n Bass club, following days... and of course an obvious place where to go after the Love Parade.
The club has been reopened since Monday, but is still under various legal pressures. Their website calls for any eye-witness of the razzia to build a defending release. Mails of any of them would be appreciated at
Noctis comment: this is baaad news, mates. Berlin was known for having one of the less repressive Police departments in Germany (comparing to Hamburg or Munich), but now it seems it changes. Even a TV politic-magazine has been focusing on Tresor and was very critic about it, a few weeks ago on ZDF tv. The real question is: is it just a local answer to the Love Parade or is it a European problem of communication between the nightlife and the authorities? Now of course, no drug deal ruled by a club could have an excuse and that is the point of the investigation... but as long as the club is not involved, is it possible to stop humanity to use drugs? Even alcohol (which is not healthier than illegal chemics)? Once again the clubbing is an easy and popular target, but who talks about the drug use anywhere else? Who's doing articles about the drug use in the professional trucker world, or in the medical world.. doctors or nurses, in the highschools, even in the factories... or in politics. In October 2000, some journalist from Sat-1 TV made analyses of the dirt found in the toilets of the Reichstag (German Parliament) ... they found that 22 over 28 toilets were revealing traces of cocaine. Will they do a razzia with urine testing at the Senate or in the jet-setters cocktails? No of course. But that's another discussion.

 Last Gazon Bar week-end! (26/08/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)
Yes, after a whole lot of magic for the summer (8 week-ends, 48 deejays, thousands of smiley people) Le Gazon is about to end the season with a loungy-breakbeat Friday and a focus on Rephlex rec. and FirstCask rec. artists for Saturday. Starting in July with only a few lightshow and 500 ppl, it worked so well that now there's about 2000 party people every open night ... a good soundsystem and a bigger lightshow. All around and in an old music kiosque in the middle of the Brussels Royal Parc (in front of Royal Palace). Notice that over the 2 months and about 20.000 people there was less than 8 security guards, no public selection, and there has been only one very short trouble with a drunk guy. You said magic? Indeed it is. Be there early or late, it's always crowded... and still until 5am.

The event will be mainly promoted by Switch, the Jan Van Biesen's show on Studio Brussel.

 Culture Club in motion & new Belmondo (23/08/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)
Sure, you know the very hype Culture Club in Gent... but do you remember that all the story started with the Eskimo parties in a factory in 1996? Yes, for those who forgot, it's the same crew who did Eskimo, Belmondo, Club69 (and so much more) and now... the Grand Tour at Museum voor Schone Kunsten in Gent, on 5 and 6 September. The flyer shows Trevor Jackson, Black Strobe, Cosy Mozzy, 2 Many Dj's, Glimmer Twins, TLP, etc... that's a not-to-miss opportunity to invade that museum for a party.
But that's not all... they're also back at SMAK Museum on 20 September for a brand new Belmondo (with more than 14 deejays featuring Lorenzo Ottati, Raoul, TLP, Glimmer Twins [aka mo&benoelie], Cosy Mozzy, Rakesh, ...). In the meantime the Culture Club will also be part of the Laundry Night in Hangar 26 (Antwerpen,

 Food merges with the Fuse ! (10/08/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)
Now guess what? The Food will also be standing at 208 Blaes street in Brussels, every saturday. always supported the gathering of energies for the nightlife, and that's precisely what's happening here. You know that the Fuse is one Techno floor + one House floor ... and you also know that the Food-at-Lounge stopped in June 2003. Well, it's simple... Frank Verdrengh (the Food club manager) now walks on with the House level of Fuse and brings Geoffroy and Raoul along the Fuse resident St Dic. This is good news since the Food expresses one of the most refined and quality House music in Europe, as well as Fuse figures what a great European Techno club can be. When vodka joins caviar. Food will be open from 00h till 07h, and Fuse club from 23h till 07h. So it's one entrance for the two clubs: 23h till 00h: 2.5 € - after 00h: 8 €. Double dose Fuse Techno + Food House ... 'There's something cookin' and it smells good, looks cool and tastes fine. A recipe best served on Saturdays from September 27th onwards.'

 Mirano is now Dirty Dancing (05/08/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)
Finally the saturday is back at Mirano Continental! After one full year of simple rental to other organisations, the club has an art direction again and launches the 'Dirty Dancing' every Saturday from September. At the top of the concept are Lorenzo Serra (the AD of Deliciouz and Future Pop) and Cosy Mozzy aka Renaud Deru (Blow Up, Vicious Games, 10 Days Off). This means that the Blow-Up club will stop, but most of the crew will be playing at Dirty-Dancing. Expect of course the mix of Cosy Mozzy and Mandrak, but also Stephen, Starski & Tonic (Gent), Oliver Twist (aka O. Gosseries), and prolly electro deejays from the B2B line-ups. Music will blend Disconouveau, House and a bit of electro. Are already confirmed from 27 Sept. 2003 to 22 Nov. 2003: Ladytron, Lady Miss Kier from 'Dee-Lite', Daniel Wang, Bernard Gavilan, Ivan Smagghe, Jennifer, Chloé, Fany, Joakim, Optimo (Glasgow), Morpheus (Freezone), Tiefschwarz, Bangkok Impact, Dj TLR, Spacid (Funky Green Alien, Body to Body), Cosmo, Murvin Jay, Lady Jane (Cat Club, 10 Days Off), Rick Shiver. [38 chaussée de Louvain / Leuvensesteenweg - 1210 Brussels] Who said the night was slowing down?? It's speeding up !!

 Le Gazon is Burning (18/07/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)
For one more summer, Le Gazon bar is back in Brussels and takes place again in a public parc in Brussels from 21:00 to 5:00 am. (but NOT 18 & 19 July... because of 21 July, National Day). 2001 saw it at the feet of the financial tower, 2002 at the Royal Library (Hill of the Arts), and this year it wakes up the Royal Parc (in front of Royal Palace - 1000 Brussels). As usual it's only open on sunny evenings and the schedule can be checked at
The entrance remains totally free and there is no rude selection... so you can come with your pets if u want. At least come with a smile, they'll love it. But who are they? Actually, those who set up Le Gazon every year are mostly coming from the Boups Radio crew (, and that's why the music panel is extremely wide. From Reggae to Electro, from Techno to Drum'n Bass, Lounge and Pop, etc etc etc ... and the magic touch: the moon in the open sky. Have a breath!

A Las Barricadas!
Negras tormentas agitam os mares
Nuvens escuras nos impedem de ver
Ainda que esperemos a dor e a morte
Contra o inimigo nos chama o dever
O bem mais valioso eh a liberdade
Lutemos por ela com fé e valor
Levante a bandeira revolucionária!
Que levará o povo libertario!
Levante a bandeira revolucionaria
Que levara o povo libertário [...]

 Roller Parade is back again! (26/06/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)
Dya love rollers and rolling in your city at night, freely and safely? That's possible again, and now in the whole country. This means there will be a roller parade every night, one weekday per city. Moreless 20km in the streets of :
- Hasselt every Monday
- Namur every Tuesday
- Gent every Wednesday (except 23 & 30 July)
- Liege every Thursday
- Brussels every Friday
- Mons every Saturday
- Koksijde every Sunday 13 & 20 July and 10 & 24 August
That's an outstanding project mixing sport, night, city and music (there is always many small soundsystems with selected music). The organiser, Carl (he created the Who's Who's story, JetLife, DiscoChic, ruled the Mirano for a couple of brilliant years, etc...), started the Brussels Roller Parade in summer 2002, and it gathered thousands of rollerskaters. This year it's spreading all over Belgium, and it turned more young cops on it so there is now 60 rollercops to keep it completely safe for everyone (children can come too, but with wrist, elbow, knee protection & helmet). Now that's what nightlife needs: more fun and more diversity.
