Was feeling blue the other day over how out of reach Berlin’s infamously hedonistic KitKat club was to me, being that I am situated all the way in the States so I decided to look up their instagram to relive the memories. To be honest, their IG feed wasn’t quite what I was looking for (probably doesn’t help that I don’t understand a schnitzel of German) but luckily their IG stories for that day/night was intriguing.
“Symbiotikka tonight” was plastered over the screen, accompanied by the typical thumping techno beats that Berlin is so known for, splashed with hazy videography that is not unlike the dungeon-esque rooms of KitKat itself. Curious, I clicked on the tag and was taken to their Symbiotikka page.
Symbiotikka is KitKat’s Wednesday techno and fetish night, which did not seem unlike their Wasteland party that I attended last October. Now I was feeling at home. I clicked on one of the videos and was instantly pulled into a dizzying “I must find this song NOW” frenzy. Luckily for me, I did not have to look far: the DJ was tagged in the caption.
Off to Soundcloud I went and luckily for me, his New Year’s set for this year at KitKat was posted at the very top. How lovely would it have been to ring in the new decade while sharing the swings above the pool with another latex-encased gal? Until that can happen again, I’ll just imagine a sweltering crowd pulsate collectively to the never-ending pounding drum kicks.
Note: this post was written back in late February of 2020. I don’t believe KitKat is currently open due to the pandemic.
