dBs Berlin isn’t just a school. From students to staff, it’s a thriving community where creatives connect and collaborate. Music tech Mathew Johnson and film tech Jason Gold used to share an office. And though Jason hadn’t touched his bass guitar in years, the new connection reignited his passion. “I think there’s something about the creative process that’s cherished here,” he says. It wasn’t long until he joined frontman Mathew and drummer Paul Laburre to form noise rock band Palm Squirrel.
In our latest episode of Studio Sessions, the ‘rock ‘n’ roll, but have fun with it’ band performs tracks ‘Kevin,’ ‘Interlude’ and ‘US Girls,’ from their upcoming EP. Catch the EP release at Baby Satan Records’ birthday party at Urban Spree on Thursday the 21st of March.

Then scroll down for the behind-the-scenes interview.
Behind the Scenes
“I think between both the staff and the student body, there’s an enthusiasm and an effortful deployment that goes into creating things and believing in things. I feel that’s a lot more positive than any other environment that I’ve been in before.”
