Wednesday night saw the mass convergence of Berlin’s cool kids for the Seek x Bright x Highsnobiety party “THE OFF” in Neukölln. Taking place in an industrial-sized ex-brewery, around 1,500 partygoers lapped up the Carlsberg, Johnny Walker, Tanqueray, Smirnoff, Pimm’s and Thomas Henry that were flowing freely thanks to the event’s sponsors, and got steadily turnt while waiting for the live acts to perform on stage. Custom, limited edition T-shirts were printed for the occasion by Highsnobiety and PLEASURES.
Germany’s Entourage & C Batman and France’s DJ Kyu Steed warmed up the crowd until just after midnight, when LA-based J $tash took to the stage with his illest verses. London had strong representation in the form of Bonkaz and Section Boyz, the night’s main act.
As the night wore on, the crowd got wilder and wilder. Only the most hardcore party animals remained as the Section Boyz starting dropping bars, and the stage was filled with dancing ladies – and a few bold guys. Bottles of Hennessy were being popped and sprayed all over the partygoers dancing in the immediate vicinity, and more than a few couples were caught hooking up in dark corners.
In short, it was lit.
