After kicking off the ceremonies earlier in September at Kantine am Berghain with a successful first event, the Berlin based label and collective Oqko is back on November 25th with 3+2, a new series of events aiming at edifying bridges between sounds, going against today's obtuse tendency towards concept solidification within scenes.
Pitching up in the over and underground of Berlin's Urban Spree, the first edition features 7 live acts and 2 DJs running through the loose fringes of techno, experimental club music, electro, ambient and noise.
