Eleven years and counting


Wow! It’s 2017 and bureau45 can look back on eleven years of passionate work & great music, amazing DJs and incredible live shows.

We asked our artists for some shouts on the anniversary and were overwhelmed by the responses. Thank you all for your support, creativity, trust, fun, hard work, and music!

„Credit to the edit“ goes to Funkdooby who put all the shouts together into two incredible shorts. He’s not just a master on the turntables but also when it comes to editing videos and movies.

Part 1 includes The Allergies, DJ Angelo, Funkdooby, DJ Woody, Kormac, Marc Hype Gärtner, MC Rene, Dero & Klumzy, Daniel Neumann and Mr. Nice Guy.

No. 2 features Boca 45, Loo & Placido, JSTAR, Ursula 1000, The Sweet Life Society, DJ Maestro & Smoove.

Our love and thanks of course do not only go out to our artists but the entire bureau45 family: festivals, clubs, promoters, friends, partners, supporters and the people who come over to the shows, listen and dance.

We would not be here without every single one of you! Now let’s go for the next decade…

Mop Mop and bureau45 have a lot in common: They both started in 2005, they share the love for great music in all its forms, genres and from sources around the globe. And they both continue to spread their vision in 2017. We’re very happy that we can bring Mop Mop to your clubs and festivals!

Their latest album, „Lunar Love“, was released in Summer 2016 and blends Jazz with elements of dub, electronics, funk and world music. The reviews were amazing and came from dedicated music mags as well as from renowned newspaper such as Le Monde and Financial Times.

February 2017 brought a remix Vinyl ep with 3 tracks of Lunar Love re-interpreted for club floors by artists such as Kalbata, Nicola Cruz, DJ Khalab und sUb_modU.

Mop Mop is available as a band with 3 – 7 musicians, so they’ll work for small clubs and big stages alike. Contact us for details!

The love is hard… the message even harder: Yarah Bravo


2017 starts with a new inspiration in terms of music, style and consciousness: we’re very happy to welcome Yarah Bravo to the bureau45 family.

A Swedish citizen with Latin American roots who lived in London, NYC, and now Berlin, Yarah embraced music from all over the world to develop her unique flow of soulful, jazzual, intelligent and political hip-hop. She shared stages with everyone from Wu Tang Clan, Public Enemy to Fat Freddys Drop and Asian Dub Foundation. Yarah also was a founder of London based group One Self (signed on Ninja Tune) and front woman of DJ Vadim’s The Soundcatcher Soundsystem (BBE).

After recent collaborations with Nightmares on Wax (warp) , Organized Threat (L.A), A state Of Mind (Wax Tailor), Xewin (Switzerland) and a stint at the Red Bull Music Academy in Spain, Yarah Bravo is back with new projects. Passionate, positive, funky and ferocious, and willing to show the world it’s all about the heart!

Enjoy her live performance on Youtube.
