Epic Music Clubs Sock Collection – Tresor Club Berlin
July 10, 2018
Disorientating, mind blowing, brutal, fun, surprising, long lasting and freaky, Berlin is probably the best clubbing city in Europe. The clubber culture has become a life style and music is a religion. You may wonder why the nightlife is so intense in this city. Berlin’s transformation into the world techno capital is very much linked to the German reunification and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
As the wall came down, so did all the previous patterns of behavior. People were taking advantage of their recently acquired freedom, which is why the clubbing scene developed in such a unique way and over such a short period of time. Inside abandoned factories and commercial buildings that had to be taken down, clubs started to mushroom at full speed. Looking to express themselves, Berliners found inside those clubs a new identity. Viel Spaß!
When Tresor opened on March 13th 1991 in a shack on Potsdamer Platz, beneath which the vault of the Wertheim department store lay, no one would have thought that from there would arise an institution that one day would celebrate 27 years of existence. The venue had only been licensed as an art gallery and received a lease of just three months. Needless to say, in the early days, every single day they expected the authorities to close the venue
Instead, the club became the formative stylistic starting point of a worldwide music and youth movement. The Tresor cellar, with its dance floor pressed between bank safes, the unique sound and the dense fog, became a symbol of the successful reunification of the youth of two formerly separated German states, who danced and celebrated here together from the club’s inception. DJs and artists from Detroit were the main inspiration for the sound of the vault – the now famous Berlin-Detroit connection resulted in a very special friendship between the two cities. As a club and record label, Tresor had already become a worldwide magnet and advertisement for the city of Berlin.
It’s history began basically together with the creation of the city’s clubbing scene, right after Germany was unified. They started as a record label called Interfish at Ufo, the original center of Berlin house and techno. After its closure, the Tresor crew thought it would be a good idea to establish their own club. Their timing was perfect and they quickly became a popular venue, reconstructing and expanding the place several times over the years.
Over the past 27 years Tresor has created many historic moments in the musical and party history of the city. From Jeff Mills’ first sets on three turntables, to the grandiose Tresor Park parties, to various chapters of the Loveparade with Sven Väth in the 90s and since then countless generation-spanning parties, that represented for their visitors the highlights of their personal clubbing experiences. The history of the club was always eventful and not without complications. From the temporary closure by the authorities in the early years, to several raids, all the way to the closure and demolition of the old location in 2005, the years of wandering in exile and the resurrection in the new location Kraftwerk Berlin.
Based on extensive research and our own partying experience we came up with a new club socks designs featuring the best clubs never before displayed in fashion. DTMX club socks bring together a wide range of designs inspired by epic clubs like Tresor, Omen or Berghain. If it wasn’t for Tresor, Berghain probably wouldn’t even exist.
