Konrad Black has mixed the 3rd installment of the Watergate CD series

Situated by the river Spree, known for it’s first-rate lineups of international talent and of course it’s famous wall to wall LED dance floor installation, the Watergate Club in Berlin has quickly become one of the world’s leading dance music clubs. Only 5 years after it’s official opening the club now goes a step further and releases a characteristic Mix CD series delivering only the finest DJ Mixes by some of club’s most exiting residents and guests. With the focus being put not only on the music but also on the packaging and design, this series will quickly become a truly sought-after collectors item and will surely stand out in flood of mediocre music and mixes that often dilute the market

The Watergate Mix series goes into the next round. Konrad Black is a founding member of the Wagon Repair Label and part of the Richie Hawtins M_nus family. For Watergate he delivers a mix containing influential classic material as well as new unreleased productions by himself with collaborators such as Martin Buttrich. His signature sound, a dark vision of techno shines throughout the entire project and reflects his self-perception as a DJ. Over the last years his sound has found a home in Berlin’s Watergate Club where you can catch him play on a regular basis…

Time has accelerated ten-fold for Konrad over the last three years in particular, since the dark, shadowy tones of Draconia and Medusa Smile enveloped dancefloors around the globe, not only christening his influencial Wagon Repair label in style but also establishing him as a highly innovative producer and much sought after remixer. His relocation to Berlin has also given him the opportunity to express himself more regularly as a DJ, resulting in a fast expanding reputation for sending crowds into a frenzy wherever the call of duty takes him. Konrad knows it’s about living and breathing the music, it’s not just a question of turning up, spinning a few tunes and then disappearing back into the night, it’s about getting to know the people, understanding what makes the club tick and always delivering a night of memorable tracks and seamless transgressions. There’s a Byronesque quality to Black, a perpetual struggle between external light and inner darkness that unearths moments of beauty in the darkest corners of our collective consciousness. But fortune seems to favour the brave and it’s with this firmly in mind that he leads the crowd through the night towards another Berlin sunrise.
