Ten Times Three

Into Somethin'

A decade in the music business can seem like a century. It is, therefore, appropriate to consider the Into Somethin’—a club night that will celebrate its tenth anniversary on Friday, October 26—the “Methuselah” among its competitors. When DJs Theo Thönessen, Florian Keller and Michael Reinboth—who is also the owner of the internationally renowned Compost records label—opened their doors in 1991, they aimed to bring fresh experimental electronic sounds to the city. The concept has met with repeated success ever since. Today, the Into Somethin’ team has managed to attract a younger crowd without losing its long-term loyal fans—a rare mixture that is not often seen in Munich’s nightlife. This year’s party surely will be no exception, with a star DJ line-up that other club organizers can only dream of: Rainer Trüby, who just released his DJ Kicks album, Gilles Peterson, creator of the “Worldwide” radio show and, of course, the Into Somethin’ crew will turn the tables. Special guests will include Viennese Kruder & Dorfmeister, whose K&D Sessions album still rings in every ear. It is advisable to show up early at the Muffathalle that night, for Munich clubbers will certainly arrive in droves to celebrate the popular bash’s tenth year.
