For over seven years now, DJ Cem has been reigning over Cologne’s thursday night with his weekly party BEATPACKERS at the legendary club Subway – without a doubt the most successful local party series in the name of HipHop. In 2010, BEATPACKERS is reaching out to new grounds: Presenting exclusive shows by renowned live guests, the monthly event BEATPACKERS LIVE goes down at the all-new Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld.
After he has shown his qualities as an organizer and host in bigger venues with sold-out shows by legends De La Soul, Chali 2Na (Jurassic 5) or Ugly Duckling in the last years, DJ Cem has already bagged events with Ty or Dam-Funk for the summer of 2010. To him, it’s most important that the surroundings and the spirit make a whole, or, in his own words ‘that crowd and artist both have a night they’ll want to remember.’
But there’s also a more global vision in 2010: Besides the steady activities in the Cologne hometurf, steps are taken to export BEATPACKERS to other cities. Where those travels will lead DJ Cem? The world will learn soon enough.
