WERD's got a double feature this weekend! We are showcasing one half of Berlin production and dj duo KMLN, Chris Tooker. Chris is in town and playing this week for Housepitality, and we just had to give him a headlining opportunity while he is here. Sunday night @ Otis is that perfect venue to get these out of town artists to let loose and really show us what they are all about! Ed Mazur is also back on the decks again for his birthday weekend, and we are happy to host the celebration!

KAMELEON -- KMLN BIO
Normally a chameleon changes his color for the place, but with KMLN (Kameleon) Berlin – the fresh italian dj&producer-team based in berlin – every place changes his color for music.
The change is never aggressive - it gives you the possibility to tenderly enter KMLN’s caravan of love. The two charismatic guys invite you to feel how they feel music and how to express things which are not to explain.
Music is a journey – with their dreamy sound-structures they create a spaceship to overtake time. Music is passion – with their ambitious shows mostly with live instrumentalists and a colorful light performance they take the hand to the crowd’s heart and make them feel what they feel in a moment with the greatest confidence. Music is quality – The prying eyes of Kmln Berlin move to every direction of music grounded on the base of real musicians. The influences are are rich and their love for harmonies seems to be endless.
If you‘ve ever been to a KMLN live show you learn to create a night together as friends and to become a part of a colorful movement. It‘s almost a very personal adventure when Alex and Chris let flow their tracks. Besides being one of the most discussed acts in Berlin regularly playing clubs like Watergate, Club de Visionaire, Kater Holzig, Wilde Renate; they‘ve played cities all over Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France and Italy. Next up is a 4 month world tour including Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, United States, Thailand and a whole month tour in South Africa.
They are owners of a record label called „Kameleon“ that releases their own productions, along with other established artists and fresh up and coming talents. The label besides supporting many social events and organizing several parties and showcases, it has it‘s own clothing line. Whoever tours with KMLN lives the music – dancing, singing and performing - giving you a good time. Among the main instruments played you‘ll hear drums, vocals, piano, bass & violin.
With these guys you can be what you want to be – every color is a stone for the richness of a mosaic they create. Every color stands for a feeling and represents the many sides of their music, which ranges from deeper house elements, hip hop, techno, abstract and british influenced modern electronica, with a very organic swing throughout all their productions.
