Éclat Crew is a Berlin-based Electronic Music Collective aiming to support, promote, and inspire the practice and output of female, trans and non-binary artists through collaboration and cooperation.

But why?

This event is about connecting producers from under-represented groups, and providing a time and a space to work, challenge each other, and honor and share our collected strengths and knowledge.

I don’t think I’m ready for this jelly...

Are you interested in music production? Then you’re ready! Even if you’ve never touched a DAW before, this is your opportunity to be amongst helpful, interested and engaged producers of all different genres and skill-levels.

What do I need to bring?

A laptop with a DAW installed (Garageband, Logic, Ableton, Fruity Loops, Pro Tools, Bitwig, Reaper, or any other DAW you can think of, preferably with as much of the extra content downloaded as possible), and headphones.

What do I get out of it?

An instant community of supportive music maker friends who understand the unique challenges facing minorities in the industry – a regular, scheduled opportunity to extend and expand your music-making practice – specific production challenges to push more established producers out of their comfort zones – shared knowledge from other members of the group through presentations and collaborations.

What about access?

Éclat Crew is currently run online via Zoom until it is safe to come together in person again.

When Covid allows, we will be back at The Workshop on Forsterstr 51. The closest bus is the M29, and the closest U-Bahn Station is Görlitzer Bahnhof (U1). We regret to say that our space is not currently accessible for wheelchair users; there are 3 steps to get into the space, and another step between the front room and the unisex toilet. However, producers who are unable to attend due to these accessibility considerations are encouraged to participate remotely. Please contact us for more information.

What about safety?

If you have concerns for your safety coming to and from Éclat, there is a fund available for you to take a taxi home at the end of the night. Please just talk to us, as your safety is of utmost importance to us.

I liked Éclat Crew and want to find more things like it. Where do I find them?
