Those of you who have been following Berlin’s 50WEAPONS label since it began its mission a decade ago will doubtlessly be sad to realize that it’s getting set to reach the end of its run. It’s been a rich 10 years for the folks at 50WEAPONS (and all those who snapped up their releases), but all good things must end. And between now and the end of the year, the label will release numbers 40 through 50 in its catalog, thus fulfilling its mission. But it’s not as simple as that, of course. Fear not, 50WEAPONS will be going out amid plenty of fanfare, commemorating its farewell with a tour, a box set and more.
Modeselektor, Monolake, Shed, Truncate and Addison Groove, are only a few of the artists who will be among the label’s final batch of releases. There will also be a special collectors’ box set coming out on December 4, celebrating the 50WEAPONS saga and containing lots of cool extras.
And in case that wasn’t enough, there’s a world tour in the offing, which will find a batch of the label’s core artists hitting major cities all across the globe. It all adds up to a grand sendoff with plenty of ways for fans to take part in the final 50WEAPONS farewell. Keep a close eye on the website for updates and info.
