Since his debut in 2008 with a first gig in a packed Paradiso, Charlie Dior (born 1977 in Goes, Zeeland, Netherlands) developed a unique style of mixing obscure Italo, electro, house and cosmic disco records into a new challenging dance experience. He knows perfectly how to fire up the crowd for hot dancing pleasures and how to make them aware of their love for real music. He frequently spins records with Frenk Koedood, Boonie Kleinjan, Remco Beeskow, Yuko Asanuma, Sens3 & Charlie, forming SMF, which serves as the acronym for SuperMiniFeest.
For all intents and purposes, the Monarch will serve as the "official bar" for this year's CTM. Hidden above the Kaiser's supermarket (the entrance to an unlikely concrete staircase can be found next to the Turkish snack bar), with a splendid view onto the elevated U-bahn station at Kottbusser Tor, the Monarch has been a bastion of local social activity for the last few years. Just a few doors down from the action at the nearby Festsaal Kreuzberg, West Germany, Paloma Bar, Nr 4 and Kotti Shop, the Monarch is the ideal place to stop in for a drink when the performances have finished, before headingto the more remote CTM locations of Maria am Ostbahnhof or Berghain.
For your edification and listening pleasure, we have organized Selector's Choice: an assortment of discriminating DJs will be spinning records – the only brief being that they follow their intuition and specific interests to provide an engaging soundtrack. In other words, carte blanche. The Monarch will open at 21:00 and close when the last patrons drink up.
