Unknown djs Berlin debuts at Hoppetosse this Sunday, February 16th with COSMJN, Remelie, Daniela Cast and project heads Alexander Kraemer & Dean Marc.

Electronic music is all about reinventing itself. So what best way to do so than through the new event series Unknown djs focused on showcasing as its name expresses, up- and- coming talent, in the legendary Hoppetosse in Berlin?

The concept behind this new event series is very simple: showcase new talents from all over Europe, giving them the best spot to play, alongside them with renowned artist such as the captain COSMJN, in this case, who will have to guide the ship. 

COSMJN is part of the third Romanian generation of amazing artists that the southeastern European country has delivered and continues to fascinate audiences all across the continent and abroad with his minimalistic signature and, as his name suggests, galactic style. His characteristic sound drives from minimal house to a more technoid sound, always providing a distinctive futuristic edge. During the last couple of years, he has seen his music released on labels like RORA, Subtil and Eastenderz to name a few. 

 

He has started 2020 in style with his "Soul Things" EP on playedby and is a regular guest at the renowned Sunwaves Festival. His last release on Romanian playedby label it's just small yet substantial anticipation of the incredible COSMJN talent that you’ll be able to experience.

Albanian Riviera Getaway UNUM Festival Returns For Spectacular Second Edition

unum-line-up-event1-a-z

After making a huge impression in its first year, the magical UNUM Festival returns to the Albanian Riviera from May 28th to June 1st 2020. The first wave of names for this sun soaked, naturalistic getaway include Raresh, Seth Troxler, tINI, Sonja Moonear, Dyed Soundorom, John Dimas, Priku, Praslea, Cap, Digby, Cesar Merveille with many more to be announced.

In 2019, UNUM made an immediate mark with its debut edition, that played out on the stunning Albanian Riviera with a world class line-up. The festival really shined a spotlight on the last untapped corner of Europe: Rana e Hedhun, in the town of Shengjin, on the idyllic Albanian coastline.

Capture decran 2020-01-29 a 16.41.59

Now running even longer by starting Thursday and continuing non-stop until Monday, music plays both the day and night, so you can expect blissful sunrise and sunset parties, as well as a wealth of water sports, local culture, rich food and drink offerings and a music loving crowd from all corners of the world. There are also isolated bays and golden sand beaches to explore, and all with the stunning Albanian Alps as the backdrop. UNUM is the type of blissful and dreamy, organic and natural place, that feels undiscovered and hidden away from the rest of the world.

In 2020, there are once more three stages: The Beach Stage, which runs from sunrise until sunset, will be more experimental and chilled during the daytime, to give people a place to enjoy the surroundings. The Main Stage, which runs from sunset until dawn, and finally the Into the Pines Stage, which runs 24 hours a day and mixes world renowned names, regional artists and a mix of alternative and experimental musical styles, all in the shade of lush pine trees which infuse the air with their scent.
