Spearhead of Watergate label, Berlin’s most renowned electronic music institutions, Adana Twins is the renowned duo formed by Take It Easy (Benjamin) and Friso. Since their two well-known tracks “Strange” and “Everyday” in 2012, every EP and tour date became a real rendezvous for every true fan of electronic music. Exclusively, Benjamin delivered us his first and last times before their tour date in Bordeaux with Curiosity Music collective

First time you went to a record shop?

First club you went in? First DJ set you listened to?

Benjamin: The first club I went to was called Buntes Haus in Celle. An alternative place with lots of parties from a multitude of musical genres. The first DJ set I listened to was on a hip-hop jam. The DJ’s name was Tha Joker and we all looked up to him as he already had some success in the DMC and ITF contests.

Last club you went to? Last DJ set you listened to?

Benjamin: The last club I went to was Bob Beaman in Munich. We played there. Last DJ set I really listened to was this Saturday from my girlfriend Gōra. It was one of those rare free weekends for me where we also had a babysitter. So I could join her.
