Upcoming Film: 'Desire Will Set You Free'

Yony Leyser's 'Desire Will Set You Free' will premiere in German cinemas on the 5th of May. The film is "...a fictional, albeit pretty realistic, time capsule of Berlin's underground scene." (Vice) Along with 'Total Eclipse Of The Sun' by Einstürzende Neubauten are other Freibank titles like 'Confusion' by Steve Morell & Monika Pokorna, 'Samt & Stein' by Velvet Condom and 'Holy Water' by Bettina Köster.


'hamburg elektronisch 3' now available on hfn music

Hamburg's staple electronic compilation makes a return!

Bands that have been assigned to the style of "Hamburger Schule" in the 80's and early 90's have actually created quite different styles of music and refused to be reduced to local patriotism.

So when approaching the Hamburg music scene, make sure not to confuse its estimable past with the present. Always take a step further and don’t forget the ones who didn’t fit in.

Those could be found within the environment of the Golden Pudel Club - still a statement, politically and in regards to music. And there is Golem - the place to go for those Bohèmes into Jazz, Marcuse and Minimal Techno. Frappant hosted Off-Partys for those into art. There are Grünanlagen open airs in the summer, PAL in Karoviertel, Turtur in Wilhelmsburg, Uebel & Gefährlich and many more.

Off the beaten tracks there’s a vivid scene of dedicated hosts and labels such as Smallville, Pampa, Derivé Schallplatten, Baalsall Records, Diynamic Music or hafendisko. Among others, always among others.

The series 'hamburg elektronisch' already tributed two compilations to this diversity under the slogan "von house zu house". Quality continues with the third issue of 29 (mainly exclusive) tracks.

We are proud to see freibank published artists Wareika, Deo & Z-Man, Florian Kruse & Hendrik Burkhard, Oliver Huntemann, André Winter and D-Saw represented on this great compilation!


The release party will take place April 23rd at Beta Lounge in Hamburg!
