Our Concept: Sake Revolution

After traveling around and trying many different Sake brands in Japan, we can guarantee an amazing quality and experience with the selection that we’ve made for you. When we try to drink a lot of Sake in Berlin, we have to buy expensive bottles of Sake. The bottle of Sake is really expensive because the price in Berlin includes the cost of import and alcohol taxes. The price of Sake in Berlin is 3 times more expensive than the price in Japan. We Japanese would like to share great Sake experience with all the people in Europe. Also, we should share our unique culture “All You Can Drink Sake: Nomihoudai” because we want you to try many varieties of Sake without hesitation. This is Sake Revolution from Berlin. We hope you’ll take part in our Sake Revolution!

Regarding Food and Retail vendors for next Japanese Sake Festival in winter:
This time we got a lot of application from food and retail vendors. Unfotunately We are closing applications this time, but we have application form for next time. We will keep in touch with you when we will be sure about next Japanese Sake Festival in winter.

Die Neuen Schweden 2017

DIE NEUEN SCHWEDEN are coming back! Join us for the showcase with 3 newcomer bands from Sweden on August 30 at Urban Spree. The event is free for everyone.

DIE NEUEN SCHWEDEN are back! Together with the Swedish educational institute SENSUS MUSIC, we are excited to present the third edition of our joint project for young bands DIE NEUEN SCHWEDEN (“The New Swedes”). This year in late August, we will once again invite three Swedish newcomer bands to Berlin in order to take a look behind the thick curtain of the music industry. Together with the young musicians, we will venture on a music industry crawl through the city and present a showcase night at Urban Spree.

All the artists participating in this year’s project – and thoroughly chosen by us from many many applicants – are introduced below.

DIE NEUEN SCHWEDEN 2017 are:

Many Voices Speak (Stockholm)
Many Voices Speak aka Matilda Mård released three singles in a month’s time last fall before dropping her debut EP “Away For All Time” in late October 2016. The EP was written and recorded in the small Swedish industrial town of Borlänge, where Matilda relocated to escape Stockholm’s busier pace. The songs on the EP have an airy freedom and calmness to them, which emanate from the space in which they were created. The single “Video Child” and the cover of the classic “Blue Moon” caught international acclaim from, among others, Stereogum, Noisey, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY and more. The dreamy indie pop and folk influences has been compared with Beach House and Destroyer, yet Matilda really has her own sound and vibe. The live debut took place at the festival Where’s The Music? in February 2017. Many Voices Speak will release a new single in August 2017, and her debut album is coming out later this fall.

Baula (Gothenburg)
Baula is a Swedish/Icelandic duo consisting of Kallo Thunberg and Ísak Ásgeirsson. They are based in Gothenburg and were formed right before Iceland Airwaves 2015, where they played eleven off-venue shows during the week-long festival. Baula released their second single “Just Like Yesterday” in January 2017. The song was reviewed in over 30 music blogs and described as “music that hurts” by the Swedish music magazine GAFFA. Baula will release their third single in August 2017.

Kuda Aka Mr Realtalk(Östersund)
Kuda, a Zimbabwean rapper based in Östersund, Sweden, is a name we mostly hear in the very private hallways of hip-hop social media. Kuda has a long love affair with hip-hop and the art of putting rhyme to beat to produce a well-thought-out verse and song. He centers the daily life of the working man, the eye in the street, the voice of reason and making money. He raps in multiple languages on his tracks, including Shona, Ndebele, Setswana, Zulu and English. Kuda has done collaborations with many artists, including Howard Who (RMH), Follow Him To The End Of The Desert and Johan Vuitton & Görda. In April 2017 he released his new EP “Therapy”. The videos for the first single “Intro” as well as the track “Outro” are out now on YouTube.

*Line up

// Tomoki Tamura (Holic Trax / Doublet) From Osaka //

The rare breed that is Tomoki Tamura started his journey with dance music in Japan and has come a long way since. A move to London in 2004 inaugurated a series of Holic nights that would eventually lead him to rock the floors of top London venues including Fabric, Ministry of Sound, and Plastic People. Meanwhile, he had gained enough experience and respect to earn himself a residency at the legendary club The END / AKA from 2007 until its closure in 2009.

Quickly growing to become a staple night in London’s nightlife, HOLIC continued to flourish as it brought a fresh selection of quality house and techno djs to the capital. While the party bubbled in London, it also earned permanent residency at one of Japan’s most respected clubs, Womb in Tokyo. He began to play an important roll being the main underground music ambassador connecting Tokyo to London. With immediate affect, Tomoki received the much deserved respect and started to play in all corners of the world.

Almost a decade after HOLIC’s establishment, the launch of the label HOLIC TRAX came naturally in 2012 with a release from none other than Mr. G. The label’s unique raw take on house music has earned enormous praise from underground music lovers. With releases from Tuccillo, Rick Wade, Chris Carrier, Ekkohaus & Rufus, Kate Simko, and Robert Dietz, the label has proven to follow its own taste without compromise. Tomoki is one half of Doublet, a project in collaboration with Italian Ibiza resident Tuccillo. HOLIC TRAX has been the main outlet for their unique take on raw and moody house tracks.

Although proving to be a credible producer, label owner, and promoter, he knows his records the most and is a DJ above all. He now resides in Berlin where he calls home.

// Hideto Omura (Robsoul Recordings) From Nagoya //

Having been inspired by the skills and sounds of Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Cajmere et al, Omura took to the decks himself back in the early naughties. His natural beat running, mixing swing and selection always guarantee an enviable energy and electricity on dance floor. A move to Germany accelerated Hideto’s increasing appetite for the studio and it wasn’t long before he was creating beats of his own.
