This Friday nd_baumecker will be performing at Drukpers. It will be the debut in Trouw of the Berliner and it won’t be the last time he’ll be playing in Trouw. Andreas has been a key-player in the German underground scene since 1991. Up until today he can also call himself the absolute cornerstone of Panorama Bar with his sympathetic presence and character. During his sets he plays a non-confining mix of disco, house, techno, electro and pop. An as the cherry on top of the cake: nd_baumecker’s mixing skills are one of the best in the world. He’s an absolute must see & hear.
nd_baumecker has been co-responsible for the programming of Panorama Bar for a long time, the gay club of which he’s the ensign-bearer. He recently spoke about the increasing attention around the problems concerning the ant-gay movement that continues to rise in Russia, which infuriates the progressive parts of the world. A couple of German club such as Harry Klein and Berghain are definitely paying attention to this problem on Thursday September 12th. Under the motto ‘Promoto Diversity’, other clubs in Israel and the United States will participate in an awareness campaign and fundraiser for the foundation All Out. The goal: to stop the hypocrisy surrounding gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. Baumecker: “I think that it’s important that diversity gets the attention it deserves all around the world. The idea surrounding Promote Diversity got an impulse from the current situation in Russia. The living conditions of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders are deteriorating, but other countries also have insane laws to even criminalize homosexuals. The house and techno scene stands for diversity and equality. But if you look at the message in the Boiler Room chat rooms for example, you’ll see that there’s still a lot to gain."
Let’s all dance a little bit harder tonight to empower nd’s words.
