The Berlin based label 50 Weapons will be taking over De Verdieping with Shed, Benjamin Damage and Phon.o. on january 4th. For this occasion, we get to give away one amazing 50 Weapons package to one lucky person!
On a rainy day in Manchester in 2004, Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szaryte of Modeselektor, half-drunkenly came up with the idea to found a bootleg label where every bootleg would cost only fifty cents and the label would only see fifty releases before shutting down. Almost ten years later, the 50 Weapons label is standing immensely strong and Modeselektor even founded a new label where they release records not only as Modeselektor, but also as Moderat together with Apparat.
But what kind of ammunition is 50 Weapons actually packin’? Well, a big list of quality names you’ll probably recognize: Cosmin TRG, Benjamin Damage, Falty DL, Doc Daneeka, Anstam, Phon.o, Dark Sky, Marcel Dettmann, Addison Groove, Humanleft, Shed, A Made Up Sound, Bambounou and last, but certainly not least Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace.
50 Weapons frontmen Shed, Benjamin Damage and Phon.o will be taking over De Verdieping this Saturday. To celebrate, we're giving away 1x2 guest list spots plus a 50 Weapons package consisting of the vinyl EP's 'Schn33/Go' by Phon.o and '4600' by Benjamin Damage, the #50 Weapons RMX 01-09 CD and the Bamboumou pres. best of 50 Weapons CD!
What do you have to do to win? Send an mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before Saturday January 4th 15:00 containing the answer to the following question: What is the other moniker of Shed on which he very recently released a great EP? We'll announce the winner Saturday afternoon.
