PARIS – REX CLUB & CONCRETE CLUB
TECHNOBABES ON TECHNOTOUR:
PARIS Winter 2014-2015
When talking about the european techno scene and its development, Paris is often left out. Although there has always been a strong interest in electronic music, the french focused mainly on Electroclash, Nu-Disco and good House. You know, French Touch! But the trend is changing…
Here are a couple of the most famous labels in France by the French Clubbers: Have a look at Ed Banger record, Bromance records, and Roche Music for exemple.
Today Paris is as awake as never before! Close your eyes… Imagine you’re in Paris right now… Let’s see whats happening in the french capital tonight:
Friday the 12th of December 2014:
– Jamie Jones & Infinity Ink at YoYo-Palais de Tokyo
– Seth Troxler – Ibellini at Showcase
– We are Family with Boris Brejcha at La Machine Du Moulin Rouge
– Grand Paris – Blank: “Life and Death“: Tale of Us, Agoria, Dj Tennis and Mind Against at La Cité De La Mode Et Du Design
That is pretty amazing, right?
I needed to find the right occasion to come back to the city of love. Guess who was playing that weekend ? The new project of the best Djs of the moment in my opinion: Binh Germann & Onur Özer named Treatment: “Best quality music ever, rare records and super taste” they say.
HOW TO BE TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL IN PARIS:
FRIDAY 3rd OF DECEMBER
SATURDAY 4th OF DECEMBER
JEKYLL1HYDE:PHILIA AT REX CLUB
FRANCESCO DEL GARDA MEETS EVAN BAGGS
KERMIT DEE B2B SINA
My Parisian weekend really began when I went to lunch with the head of The Walking Machine.
On the menu: Parisian night-life news, new projects talks and lots of laughs about the Richie Hawtin and his recent incident at Time Warp NL.
Just like in every other big city there are a lot of clubs – the good ones and the better ones.
Rex Club is one of the top locations in Paris. That’s why after having motivated one of my party friend and said to Francesco del garda that we will come to dance until the end, we decided to move there. Don’t miss out Rex Club when you’re around!
That’s when I discovered for the first time Evan Baggs and Kermit Dee playing in B2B with Monsieur Sina.
In the end, Francesco del Garda & Evan Baggs, were playing a crazy B2B set and invited us to do an unplanned after party…
After, after, who said after?!
At the closing, we formed a happy group and right after this well-known moment: we-are-on-the-street-taking-decision-for-the-after-party we left the Rex Club with the DJs and went to a location like nothing I’ve ever seen before…
I never seen a place so beautifully weird before. When we entered, first, Albert Einstein in wax was looking at us, then we discovered many heads, bodies, pieces of body made of different materials. Really really weird. The last room was decorated with 3 magnificent pieces of 3D arts representing the draw of cutaway heads.
If my memory is good, when we entered this room, everybody kept quiet few long seconds impressed by the beauty of the art and the unlikely place. After a few explanations we knew we had walked across the studio and the showroom of the most famous European anthropologist who is actually working on 3D artistic projects. I was just with super nice people and I had the pleasure to make some new super cool discoveries. (Have a closer look at the bottom of the article).
Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay to long, but I heard that the after party went on till 7pm.
Time moves fast in Paris and I quickly had to be ready to leave for the second night, the one I was here for.
Black liner, well-chosen outfit, my TechnoBabes sweatshirt and my Parisian besties, that’s how you get ready for Concrete!
What I really like in “La Concrete” is that everyone has its own way to live it!
Concrete (own by Surprize Agency such as the Weather Festival in Paris) used to only organize after hours / after parties on Sundays when I first went there. Within the last year they opened up on Friday & Sunday nights as well. Although people say it has changed too much by attracted young and arrogant parisiens, I still believe it’s the best club in town.
Just have a look at the line up! The music, the vibe, the people, the venue is a boat on the river La Seine, the soundsystem is Function One… I could go on for hours describing the atmosphere… But you really have to live it to understand it.
I came to see Onur Ozer. I heard him play at last Amsterdam Dance Event and never heard a similar music. This time, him and Binh presented their new project named Treatment. One thing to say, if you are a promoter, a super crew or the DA of a club, please book Treatment, invite me and I will be the happiest girl in the world.
To put in a nutshell, the cons of this night: It ended too fast!
Finallyl let’s talk about after parties again: On Saturday morning we moved to this little epic funny bar named Le Moka. « A bar that open very early just to do afters?! » asked my father surprised .
Yes it is: the place is little, the people are smiling and coming up early on the morning to get a beer, the DJ and the music are super cool and you will never see so cheap beers ever more in Paris!
The moka was the last adventure of my parisian party trip.
The conclusion of this new report of Paris is :
Rex Club and Concrete are the best places to go out and surely the most famous
Never say no to an after-party
