real scenes: berlin

kurze und sehr sehenswerte doku von resident advisor ueber berlins technovergangenheit und bestandaufnahme zur aktuellen situation:

For the third edition of Real Scenes, RA and Bench go to one of the most special places for electronic music in the world: Berlin. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, techno became the underground soundtrack to the reunion between East and West. In recent years, it’s become an international destination for ravers—a cheap place to party with clubs that are renowned throughout the world.

Techno has become a business in the meantime. Yet Berlin still maintains a credibility that other cities lack. To understand why, RA and Bench went to the German capital eager to find out about its unique history and the reasons behind its continued relevance.

everything is a remix

teil 1 von 4, von everything is a remix, ist vor ein paar tagen online gegangen. wie der titel schon sagt, gehts um die remixkultur, die keineswegs ein neues phaenomen ist:

Remixing is a folk art but the techniques involved — collecting material, combining it, transforming it — are the same ones used at any level of creation. You could even say that everything is a remix.
