PvD, Sander Kleinenberg @Vandit Night, Casino, Berlin
by Overseas: 06-06-2003

Ibiza in Berlin

After 6 months of Vandit night withdrawal (I missed February due to vacation, April due to illness ) I finally made it to Berlin again. Aah, what a good night this was!

This time we, i.e. my friend from Frankfurt who is crazy enough to join me on those Berlin one-nighters sometimes, even flew early to meet a long time Casino friend, Piotr, for drinks before heading to the Casino. We met at the coolest summer location, the fairly new "Strandbar" (which means "beach bar"), which has it's name for a reason: set slightly elevated on the banks of the river, they actually have sand, beach chairs and umbrellas to give a real beachy feeling. You sit there, chill, listen to groovy house music and enjoy your drink and life.

As always, we got to Casino at 11 sharp in order to not even miss PvD's first record. As we walked in, we find the outside area in front of the building made into a terrace with chairs, tables, even couches and a full bar. Perfect chill out area. Continuing to the door we kind of bump into PvD chatting with some people in the corner with the couches. Well, a minute later he goes inside to get started. Before he started playing we have a brief chat with him in the DJ booth and my friend requested Alanis Morisette-The Couch (PvD remix) which he then actually played later in the night.

Anyway, Paul's opening set was somehow different than usual, not as mellow-housey as it typically is. In fact more like progressive, obviously to prepare for Sander Kleinenberg. At every Vandit night I notice how well he sets the stage for the guest DJ. Just superb.

Sander started out very slow, even boring. but that was over after some 15 or 20 minutes and the set steadily improved. The second hour was just absolutely sick IMO. Of course a totally different style than PvD, yet extremely danceable. Piotr and I went nuts to this sick remix of Eddie Amador-House Music!

After that Paul was off the hook, as usual I might add . Unfortunately, I missed what must have been the hardest part of his set (someone told me) because I enjoyed what came close to Ibiza feeling outside on the terrace where Sander spun a spontaneous surprise set for about an hour to bright sunshine and a cool breeze. So cool of him to do that. And it was great to party with him there as he was in such a good mood and so relaxed. Lots of fun.

Well, Paul's finale for the last two hours or so were another sweaty exercise, absolutely insane. As if I needed a reminder as to why I love PvD so much!
