BERLIN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The music industry, apparently, still knows how to party.
Sex, check. Drugs, check. Rock 'n' roll, check. They were all present at a wild record label bash held in the Berlin offices of Bertelsmann – an embarrassing episode for the German media giant.
The executive board at Bertelsmann – Europe's largest media company – is investigating how the party got so far out of hand that police were called.
According to various reports in the German press – some of which were verified by sources to The Post – at the June party cocaine and hashish were abundant, and guests were caught having sex in conference rooms and locked offices.
A police report cited by German magazine Der Spiegel mentions "couples caught in the act in Conference Room 2a."
Press reports in Germany said that music giant SonyBMG – partly-owned by Bertelsmann – hosted the party. However, a source told The Post that a German record label called It-Sounds, which is distributed by SonyBMG but not owned by the music giant, actually hosted the bash. Some SonyBMG executives were invited, however.
A report in the German publication Die Welt described a raucous scene. According to an English translation: "On management floors, guests copulated in locked offices; used cocaine in the toilets, smoked weed in the foyer, and made out wherever they had the inclination, as was heartily invited."
Another reported mentioned "splashes of urine on the walls and bars."
In a memo written Monday by Bertelsmann's executive board – a copy of which was obtained by The Post – the company claimed the party was hosted by SonyBMG.
The memo also outlined new changes in company policy: "As the owner of the building, Bertelsmann will pursue a full clarification of the facts with the event's host, SonyBMG.
"Measures have been taken to ensure that incidents like the ones described in the protocol cannot occur in the future." The party was held in June, but only became public this week in the German press.
The top exec to attend was SonyBMG Europe chief Martin Steinkampf, but a source said he left between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., before the party heated up.
The bash was held to honor the German band 2raumwohnung and its members Inga Humpe and Tommi Eckart, whose album recently went gold, meaning it sold over 500,000 copies.
A spokesman for Bertelsmann declined comment.
However, Bertelsmann spokesman Oliver Hergesell was quoted in the Berliner Zeitung saying: "We don't know how it happened but we are looking into this. What is clear is that the real purpose of the celebration has been surpassed."
A source told The Post that the police showed up at the party after neighbors called complaining of loud music on the roof of the building.
