MCMLXXXV (1985), whose real name is Nicole Endlicher, is not just an event organiser and DJ – He’s also one of the founders of Berlin’s most legendary parties: Herrensauna. A collective that’s pushing the boundaries in what appears to look like a saturated market for hedonism and play.
Back in the days, heavy music like black metal, death metal and hardcore punk were what filled Endlicher’s ears. It was the kind of music that offered a repetitive element, that he ultimately found in techno as well. At 18, he started going to parties and that’s where he came into contact with electronic music for the first time and began his journey towards MCMLXXXV. During this time he would enter the world-famous club, Berghain, which would influence him massively and give him a life changing experience.
