Chicago, Berlin, Chicago, Berlin... this time? Berlin. It seems most of our headliners reside or came from these two amazing cities. Chicago is the home of house music, but Berlin is its Mecca.

Last time we had KMLN (aka Christopher Wayne Tooker) out to play for us, he played in a supporting slot, but his set provoked such a response from our fans and supporters that we knew we would have to have him out to headline. A musician by training, KMLN brings all of that musical experience by combining his musicianship with his DJing and curation experience. You'll see him play live percussion and instrumentation along with his DJ set, enhancing the experience and making the dance floor erupt. No shit. So we brought him back to headline. You're welcome. ;)

Playing immediately before KMLN, another local whose talents have grown every single time we've had him play: Keith Kraft. Keith's got an ear for tech house, an amazing vibe, and of course, amazing style. We're happy to have him back.

Finally, in the back, one of our favorite crowd-pleasers, Kimmy Le Funk, queen of all that is warm, funky, and disco, will join one of our longest-standing residents for a Groove Lounge set. Both of these ladies are fresh off their sets at the Sunset campout, and are ready to bring their unique and funky brand of music directly to you. Are you ready?

2011 in Berlin, a legendary rise brought Chris and ex-KMLN partner Alex (now Be Major) to appear regularly in world famous clubs like Watergate, Arena club, Weekend, Kater Holzig and Chalet; Two years later, Chris has played all over Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Sweden, France, Italy, west coast USA and a 2 month tour in Mexico. Next up, festivals in California before continuing on a 2013 European and Latin American Tour. As an experienced musician, with years spent in bands and extensive touring, he adapts to any surrounding and delivers extremely entertaining live drumming, and genre-bending performances.
Besides having released on labels such as Crosstown Rebels and Endless, he owns his own label called "KMLN rec“ based out of Berlin. Every color stands for a feeling and represents the many sides of the music, which ranges from deeper house elements to full on techno sets, under the influence of hip hop, downtempo, minimal abstract and rock influenced modern electronica, with a very organic swing throughout all productions. KMLN is more than just a collective, it's a vision created to promote human beings as "kameleons", that can easily adapt to their surroundings, share and gain colors the more they interact with each other through Love.
