    History of techno revealed in expansive ‘Sound Of Berlin’ documentary

    There is no doubt the sound of techno has the derivatives of German efficiency and preciseness written all over it. Which probably why a group of filmmakers bundled their resources into the creation of new music documentary that traverses the situations and moments that gave rise to techno thriving into what it is today.

    One of many highlights of the ‘Sounds of Berlin’ documentary is Detroit techno legend Juan Atkins reflecting on legendary artist Kraftwerk and their influence on his music telling filmmakers, “Germany has always been a quality standard. You have a group you have here called Kraftwerk from Düsseldorf that had that strong influence on my music. It brought me the preciseness of this Germany way of thinking that’s applied to the electronic music and that was the beauty of Kraftwerk”.

    Other artists interviewed in the video are Dr. Motte, Dimitri Hegemann, Marc Houle, Monolink, Pan-Pot, Mathias Kaden and Nela to name a few and all give their insights into what the scene was like from their perspectives at the time – which makes for a very well rounded view on the roots of techno music and the driving forces behind it.

    The documentary was teased four months ago and is finally out now, so get around it and let us know your thoughts on the hour long outing below.
