Listen to tracks from Willie Burns, Young Marco and Heatsick before next month’s release.
Discodromo curate a twelve-track compilation to celebrate five years of the Berlin-based Cocktail d’Amore party they started alongside DJ Boris.
From humble beginnings a gay monthly, Cocktail d’Amore has established itself as a luminary of Berlin’s electronic music community. Originally offering something a bit different to the techno sound that had been soundtracking the gay scene, the party launched five years ago offered attendees a chance to hear something a bit brighter. Fast-forward to present day and Cocktail d’Amore has transcended its identity as just a party, blossoming into a well-respected record label and releasing music from the likes of Heatsick and Lord Of The Isles, while the event itself grew to attract a “diverse range of open-minded freaks, queers and more seeking a carefree atmosphere”.
To celebrate how far they’ve come, Discodromo called on the services of several fresh faces to join Cocktail d’Amore alumni on their five year anniversary compilation, Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing. New recruits Willie Burns (Black Deer), Young Marco and Genius Of Time’s Dorisburg join an impressive array of artists already involved, all of whom have contributed with original productions that reflect the easy-going and playful nature of Cocktail d’Amore.
Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing is out as a triple vinyl release on the 18th December. Pre-order it here.
