♡♡♡ Background:

Over the last couple of weeks, a series of well more than 100 earthquakes, two out of which registering at a magnitude of over 7, has left a trail of devastation in the Himalayan country of Nepal. Especially in the rural areas of Gorkha and Chautara, entire villages have been leveled to the ground. In the capital of Kathmandu, tent cities covering most open spaces have become shelter to thousands.

While relief efforts, hindered by bureaucratic obstacles, continuing aftershocks and landslides blocking many roads, are only slowly starting to reach more remote areas, other problems remain: with most sanitary facilities destroyed and the rainy season ahead, the risk of infection with contagious diseases such as cholera is on the rise. The continuous series of aftershocks, resulting in a sheer never ending possibility of exposure to disaster, has left many people traumatized and caused severe psychological damage. On the other hand, we have been getting personal reports that queer people have been excluded from the distribution of food, water and medical supplies or have not been admitted to shelter at rescue sites. Levels of discrimination may rise in situations where relief authorities, administrative and executive staff perceive discrepancies between gender presentation and documentation of people in need. Prevailing homo- and transphobia, for example among patriarchal military cadres engaged in most relief efforts, further reinforces the marginalization of the already vulnerable LGBTI community in Nepal. Finally, there are reports of increasing incidents of rape and abuse as security forces take control over affected areas.

Although we welcome the international attention Nepal has received in media coverage and the transfer of international aid to the ground, we wish to point to some of the deficits of the way the disaster management is being handled:

– Donating to big international aid organizations such as the Red Cross DOES NOT guarantee that the funds will actually reach Nepal or anybody else in need of relief or assistance. The same goes for Nepali governmental services and organizations. Many of the funds may instead vanish along the way.
– Donating to only a few big organizations NEGLECTS the fact that inequalities and discrimination may be reproduced on the ground; vulnerable social groups such as girls and women, LGBTI people and school children may be excluded or not considered within the dominant paradigms of relief management.

For these reasons, we want to propose an alternative way of channeling funds to people who have been on the scarce end of international aid so far. We are looking forward to dancing with you for this cause.

Thank you for your support!

To get in the right mood, listen to Mauro Feola`s latest mixtape below! Mauro Feola is one important member of the Heartquake collective initiative. Born in the state of Sao Paulo (Brazil), he moved to Berlin in 2009 and has been dropping two queer parties in town since 2013, BEITOLA and Boyola, being resident DJ of both.

Zimmer – Interview

 
Since we opened this blog about one year ago we could watch narrowly the development of the sound and sets by parisian producer and DJ Zimmer. Fascinated by his music we had a lot of posts of him and so we are looking forward to have Zimmer back in Berlin on december 1st. Playing at Berlin´s Klub International with BELL BIV LAEVOE`s LA Schmock, it`s time to bring Zimmer`s so his unique brand of Horizontal Disco sound to Berlin for this one night.

While Zimmer is touring his US-Tour this fall we had the chance to ask him some questions about the way his career grew the last year, his relation to Berlin, his label plus a lot more. And we are pleased to got some interesting and exciting answers. Read it below.
 

BELL BIV LAEVOE: One year ago you lived in Berlin and accidentally we met after a concert of Anoraak. I told you how excited I was about your track „Cruisin“. Some weeks later you released your „Horizontal Disco“ E.P. on D.I.S.C.O.T.E.X.A.S. How much changed your career-life since that time?

Zimmer: Things have changed a lot! Music has become probably the most important thing in my daily life. I’m touring a lot, and studio sessions are filled with datelines. Also, I never thought of my self as a real musician back in these days. I didn’t think it could be a job. Now it’s became my career, and it’s great ! One thing hasn’t changed though, my love for disco music!
 

What was your motivation to live in Berlin and how influenced it the sound of your productions and DJ-Sets?

I was always very attracted by Berlin, because it’s a city that’s chaging a lot, there’s a lot of energy. I had the opportunity to live there last year as I worked for Native Instruments. It was a great period of my life. In terms of influence, I really understood what „deep“ means. This has translated in my DJ sets a lot, and quite a few of my productions have been influenced by the sound of Berlin, like my new remix for Eskimo.
 

You play a lot in France and also in other many places worldwide and you also know Berlin. What`s special in Berlin and is there something about Berlin where it should have a more open mind in the electronic music-scene?

I love Berlin, but it’s true the city is pretty restricted to techno and deep house. On one hand it’s great, because Berlin feels like the capital of this sound. It’s great for a musical scene to have one place where you feel this sort of energy. On the other hand, I wish the nightlife music was a little more diverse. I’m excited to bring Horizontal Disco to Berlin!
 

What do you think will be progress in the electronic-disco music? After we had a lot of 80ies influences the last years it seems the tendency now turns into the early 90ies house-classics. Is that appealing you in your music or do you just don`t care about such trend-snapshots?

I try not to follow these trends. Of course I’m always a bit influenced by trends in my DJ selection. Production wise, I’m just doing my thing. It feels like a lot of the new 90s influenced house sounds a lot the same : a groovy bass and R&b vocals. It’s never good when something becomes a formula. Even though house is bigger every day, I think nu disco will keep appealing to a growing number of people.
 

You are signed on D.I.S.C.O.T.E.X.A.S. The Label always seems like a big family of creative heads. Is that a benefit for your music to have all these talented guys around you or is everyone just simply doing his thing?

It’s a benefit for sure. I get a lot of advice from Luis (Moullinex) and Bruno (Xinobi). Even though we don’t see each other often because of the distance (paris/Lisbon), I feel connected to these guys. We share the same tastes and work ethic. And each time we get to play together, we always play back to back and have a wild party!
 

We are big fans of Justin Faust. Are there plans to have a remix by him or will you remix some of his forthcoming tunes?

I love his sound too ! No remix for him planned, but could be an idea sometime in the future. I’m finishing a remix for another discotexas artist though : Kamp.
 

Leave the music behind you, if that is even possible, what do you like to do on a free day?

I wish I’ll never have to leave music! Otherwise, I love photography and graphical art. I also would like to get into sports. Musicians are always super lazy.

Thank you!
