It goes without saying that when it comes to iconic dance music venues, Berghain/Panorama Bar wins the crown as the most sought-after and acclaimed nightclub in the industry.
However, British producer Kieran Hebden, best known as Four Tet, has plans for a London equivalent of the famed Berlin techno institution. The artist took to Twitter to voice his concerns about London’s nightclubs, stating that “there is no club in London right now where the sound is so good it will change your life. We need this.”
His plan? Take the recently closed Trocadero in Central London and transform it into a destination venue armed with an impressive Funktion 1 sound system to rival the world-renowned set-up at Berghain. While it’s not entirely clear if he is 100% serious about these plans, his series of tweets seem to indicate that he is indeed at least interested in following up with the idea.
A review of Trocadero’s website, however, indicates that Four Tet may be a little late with this idea. The former entertainment complex is, “currently undergoing some exciting changes,” according to the website, which also states that, “a new website will be up soon with more information about these changes and the new operators [they] have on board.”
Will Kieran pursue this further? We can’t say we’re not intrigued by the idea of another iconic venue in the heart of the British capital!
