Paul Kalkbrenner’s latest mix takes us back to a time when techno took Berlin by storm.
The Berlin DJ has started a mix series a while ago while hunting down a track he remembered from his youth. The first edition—which you can find here—took us on a nice trip down memory lane.
But the second edition of Kalkbrenner’s Back to the Future mix series goes even deeper into the world of old-school classics and forgotten club anthems. Featuring everything from hyperactive Dance Mania ghetto house to chuggin’ Belgian new beat, it continues to catalog all the tunes Kalkbrenner and his friends used to listen to on the radio in East Berlin.
