Berlin is a city unlike any other and it has gained a reputation as well as international recognition over the past years for its free-spirited and highly diverse cultural scene. Due in part to its constantly shifting identity, Berlin has proven to be a cradle for creativity and innovation as well as a fertile breeding ground for new artistic trends. For over a decade now, the Berlin Music Commission thrives to take the city's flourishing music scene under its wing, organizing events, connecting key players and acting as a mediator towards local policy makers to ensure the industry's sustainability. This year's 10th anniversary is a new milestone for the commission's "listen to berlin" compilation, with a unique selection of the city's most current and distinctive sounds. Because after all, if you are seeking to understand Berlin, you will first need to listen.
