“On going remote: The story of music label Bar 25 Music”
From 2003 until 2010, Berlin’s notorious “Bar25” was an iconic landmark and vital to the city’s club scene.
Surrounded by a wooden fence, this unique venue included not only a bar and club, but also a restaurant, stage, a hostel and a sauna with pool. Swings, an old autoscooter and other relicts gave the impression of a parallel universe and adult playground on the shores of the Spree.
Here, in a large shack in the style of an American Western Saloon, some the world’s finest DJ’s spinned turntables and the bar’s reputation to international fame.
However, co-founder Danny Faber always had more in mind: Eager to chase the next idea and dream, he decided to take his profession as a DJ, Producer and Entrepreneur to the online world.
Thus, he founded his own electronic music label with friends in 2006. Named after the legendary "Bar25" club, his new label quickly became a synonym for unique showcases and playful electronic music. Acid Pauli, Be Svendsen, Nicone and Oliver Koletzki are just a few of the protagonists of recent years.
Unlike the beloved bar, this label still lives on. So in our fireside chat, we explore how Danny went remote and why.
