SoundCloud SoundCloud Next Wave: An Inside Look at Berlin’s Diverse Techno Scene

“I think Berlin – why it’s such an amazing place – is the freedom, and so many people doing creative things, they come here to be creative, to meet other creative people, to bounce ideas off of people, to collaborate.” — Doc Sleep

The final SoundCloud Next Wave installment,“Room 4 Resistance,” premieres today – check it out below!

For the final episode of 2017, SoundCloud returns to its hometown of Berlin to highlight the women-led Room 4 Resistance, a collective of DJs, producers, music journalists, and promoters working to carve out a safe space for creative expression that’s free of judgement in the electronic scene. The collective honors the political legacies of house and techno–genres founded and nurtured by marginalized communities–through providing visibility for underrepresented artists by throwing parties inclusive of all races, genders and sexual orientations. “Room 4 Resistance to me is a place for anyone to come to be free, to experiment, to find community, to hear good music,” says Doc Sleep, a DJ and Room 4 Resistance resident.

Following core members of Room 4 Resistance — Roxymore, Nazira, LuzDoc Sleep and Yuko AsanumaSoundCloud Next Wave gives viewers an inside-look at Berlin’s diverse club culture and the artists challenging the electronic music scene’s homogenization. The episode culminates in the collective’s infamous monthly party, capturing the warmth, vibrancy and freedom thriving outside of the mainstream.

Room 4 Resistance’s impact extends beyond Berlin thanks in large part to the internet and platforms like SoundCloud, which the collective uses to share mixes and discover new artists. As Nazira states, “SoundCloud really helps with connecting all the puzzle pieces.”

With episodes covering local scenes emerging in London, (“Different Settings”), Brazil (“Visão”),  New York City (“Extended Mix”), Toronto (“Northern Stars”) and Los Angeles (“Degenerate Generation”), SoundCloud Next Wave highlights the exciting local creator communities being shaped, shared, and celebrated on SoundCloud everyday.

But the journey is far from over — stay tuned in 2018 for more cities and more emerging music scenes from around the globe.
