Kompott - Breaksit Party zum Mauerfall mit DJ Cal Jader (Movimientos - London, UK)
Kompott - Breaksit party for the fall of the wall with DJ Cal Jader (Movimientos - London, UK)
Exactly 30 years ago - on 9 November 1989 the Wall fell. People liked that so much that they liked many other things: The iron curtain, some European borders and tobacco consumption. But peace, joy and pancakes had an end, even several - in terms of time and geography. Some wanted the wall back in Germany, the others are pulling the iron curtain again and the third - the British - want to get out. They don't know exactly how or where to go either. But when: By the end of October it should be over. But that's where they made the calculation without us: We don't let them share us and invite our British friend music activist, party founder and musician DJ Cal Jader from London. Still duty and visa free, he brings his hot sounds to the West Zone: carnival rhythms, tropical funk, and fresh global sounds. The Kompottniks are traditionally responsible for the eastern sector - with Balkan beats, Polkamusika and Babuschkabreaks they bring the global dancefloor to overboard dancing.
The Brexit must go! The world of music knows no borders!
