It must be at least ten years ago that I saw Snax perform for the first time – it was one of these glorious Berlin summer days full of sunshine and happy people on the rooftop of the former office of then tiny Soundcloud. He delivered a set that underlined the amazingness of the day, playful and light, yet still intense on the bass, his singing, and completely danceable. The mood and sound of the day is still so present in my memory. When he sent me an email a couple weeks ago whether I wanted to premier the new video set in Brandenburg I was like: Sweet!

Only open since last summer, Du Bonheur has already become our place to go for a sweet treat.

In this week’s Kitchen Tunes edition, we sneak into the kitchen of Fast Rabbit: Combining the concept of fast food using only vegan ingredients, they serve wraps in all their varieties. The vegan deli quickly became one of our favorite spots when in Prenzlauer Berg. So, here’s what the owners listen to while preparing their famous ‘dirty rolls’ – some Chilly Gonzales topped with Tame Impala!
