Leisure System

Leisure System is the seminal Berghain residency and label formed by the producers and promoters Ned Beckett, Sam Barker, Michail Stangl and Peter Puzzle. Launched in Berlin in 2008 with their first party at the world-famous Berghain club, the collective expanded since then with various parties, residencies and festival stages all across Europe, amongst others XOYO (London), Arma17 (Moscow), Apolo/Nitsa (Barcelona), La Machine du Moulin Rouge (Paris) or Dimensions Festival (Croatia) - pioneering electronic music in a different way.

Artists like Autechre, Flying Lotus, Disclosure, Dopplereffekt, Clark, Joy Orbison or Venetian Snares have already made their way to the Leisure System nights, just to name a few.

In 2011 the crew decided to provide a platform for dance music in the folds of house, techno and electronica, disregarding media-hype and genre borders and started their own label. With this mindset the label has already seen four remarkable releases from Pixelord, Eprom Barker and the duo Jets (Machinedrum & Jimmy Edgar) - with releases of well-known producers and young talents lined up for 2013.
