In today’s podcast, I chat with Uli Wombacher, who is the director of one of Berlin’s most prestigious nightclubs, Watergate.
For the first time since the club was forced to close in March due to the lockdown, Watergate are hosting a club night again, but this time it’s virtually! The event, that takes place on Friday 10th July, will be streamed on a new online platform called YMO, which operates as an interactive space that brings the club experience to life in all its facets in a virtual way.
Watergate will be opening it’s 2 rooms plus terrace, with an internationally renowned line up of DJs, live acts and Watergate residents who will be going to play for free, including Pan-Pot, Adana Twins, Who Made Who (LIVE), JAMIIE, Anja Schneider B2B Kristin Velvet, Biesmans (LIVE) and Yulia Niko.
You can join the event alone, and meet new people, or invite your friends and have your own private party of up to 5 people. You can meet for a little get together in the toilets, where voice chat is enabled and there’s even a ‘Call The Bouncer’ option which allows clubbers to report any inappropriate behavior, racism or discrimination. They really have through of everything!

Estoy muy ilusionada de por fin poder compartir con vosotros mi podcast en español y más ilusionada aún de que Anna Tur sea mi primera invitada. Como muchos sabréis, he tenido el placer y suerte de trabajar y aprender de Anna en Ibiza Global Radio, donde las dos desde hace muy poco tiempo ya no estamos.
Tenia muchas ganas de hablar con ella sobre sus sentimientos al acabar una etapa de su vida y comenzar una nueva y también conocer más sobre su vida de jovencita y de su familia, una familia enamorados de la música y de la radio, recuerdos que lleva en el corazón, aprendizajes y mucho más.

Fortunate to grow up around the rich club culture of NYC and influenced by the sounds around him, Avision now finds himself helping to usher in a new wave of techno for the New York scene. Over the last couple of years, he’s had releases on a range of influential labels like Ellum, Drumcode, Hardgroove, Machine, We Are The Brave, Mindshake, Intec, On Edge Society, and many more. Avision started young on the turntables at age 12, and his preference for a more mature sound lead to his first residency by the time he was 15.
We talk about what he’s been up to during lockdown, tips for producers to get their music heard and how to use this time at home wisely, his beginnings, the importance of staying humble and of course… His love for pizza!
