arrowOneBeat Session #2 coming up! Jazz Elephant live

29.01.15 by Lukas



We are very happy to present the second edition of the OneBeat Session! This time we invited the very beautiful Jazz Elephant from Graz, Austria. Sometimes laid back, sometimes powerful, their music changes between Blues Rock and Trip Hop. “Like an elephant who loves Jazz and Blues but cannot hide his power”, as they describe the meaning of the band name. After releasing their first album “Paperwork” in 2013, the y collected money in a crowdfunding campaign, resulting in the release of  a video and also a single in 2014. Right now, singer Lisa and her bandmates Benni (gt) an Julian (dr, gt) are now working on their second album. If you want to know more:



We look forward to present the OneBeat Session #2 at Zum Böhmischen Dorf on Thursday, February 5th: a regular stage for concerts, readings, live acts, DJs and more. OneBeat Sessions are a platform to meet up and to get in touch with great musicians and a space where ideas can grow up and new collaborations start.

arrowTonight: OneBeat Sofa Concert #1 feat. Anna Morley & Karl Neukauf

08.11.14 by Anna

OneBeat Sofa Concert Berlin Karl Neukauf Anna Morley

We think that sofa concerts are a exiting way for musicians, singers and composer to showcase their music in a chilled environment!

OneBeats Sofa Concerts #1 features the brilliant chansonnier Karl Neukauf and our amazing multi-instrumentalist Anna Morley. The Concert is hosted in Anna Morleys private apartment in the Neukölln district.

Anna Morley is an Australian multi-instrumentalist and composer, currently based in Berlin. Her music has been described as ¨an eclectic fusion of electro-acoustic vibes with ambient overtones, woven together by fresh minimal grooves¨. Anna is principally a vibraphonist, but also lends her talents to violin, vocals and a range of keyboard and percussion instruments:

The stylistic composition of the songs written and performed by the Berlin-based chansonnier Karl Neukauf sometimes remind us of legendary singers like Hildegard Knef, Udo Jürgens, Udo Lindenberg or even Tom Waits and Mark Lanegan. Through his deep voice, accompanied by an empathetically played piano, Neukauf is presenting his thoughtful observations on the simple as well as sensational sides of life:

Relax on the pillows, chat with other guests and enjoy the best Berlin-based musicians in our cozy living room above the roofs of Berlin. We are very happy to announce: All guest list places are reserved!

10.12.12 by Lukas

On friday the 23rd of November, we organized a concert night in the lobby of the Michelberger Hotel, with two beautiful concerts by Lavoisier and Elephant. Ma Tias was playing some of his favorite tunes after the concerts. Massive thanks to the Michelberger Hotel for making it happen and to everyone who came along! What a great night!

2013 is coming up and this was our last event for this year. We’re looking into further improving our project and are looking forward to lots more nice events for 2013. So stay tuned, you’ll hear from us!

arrowPhotos – One(Beats) at Brunnen70 w/ Kyson, Wermonster & more, 08.09.2012

19.09.12 by Lukas

On saturday the 8th of September we where back down under in the Brunnen70 basement. This time with a different lineup, different musical direction and in a bigger room. We prepared well for our showcase at the monthly “Wedding Present” underground festival, bringing 2 DJs, 3 Live-Acts, 2 VJs and a light installation.

The night started with a journey through uk bass, hip hop and house by James A. Shaw as playing under his moniker Borth Sea Defence (stay tuned for more, James OneBeat artist profile is coming up). He played a live dj set with “two turntables, a laptop running Traktor and Ableton, a Korg nanopad triggering hits and samples which are running from Ableton and a Korg Monotron Delay for a few oscillations”. Enough said, listen to the recording of the Borth Sea Defence set below.

After James we had One Dub Connection finally performing again on a OneBeat showcase since Karneval der Kulturen in 2011. A blend of dub and drum’n’bass, followed by the electronica live-act Kyson, who brought plenty of gear and even had a drummer for percussion lined up, but who sadly got ill before the event. Lush, deep, and more upbeat then ever before he pleased us with a brilliant live performance.
Third live-act in a row was Wermonster, beatmaker deluxe who came straight from recording sessions in Wiesbaden. Nico has been a busy man lately. Last but not least, Alex from One Dub Connection performed a banging drum’n’bass set under his alias Trilingo… we must agree that drum’n’bass isn’t something you hear often enough in Berlin these days, that was great for a change. For visuals we invited Robert Heel for a light installation (check out his work at www.robertheel.com) and RTZ23 and E (E-Gruppe Berlin) for vjing (E introduced us to some pretty straightforward projection mapping, thanks again for the help with the setup).

Thanks go out to all the helping hands and of course our artists for playing for OneBeat for free, thus helping us grow our project and network. We hope to see you next time!
