New documentary on Berlin’s techno history is available to watch now

“A journey through the capital of electronic music”...

"The whole German reunification actually took place on the dancefloor" — that's the declaration of a new film which documents self-appointed capital of electronic music Berlin.

Titled 'The Sound Of Berlin', the new documentary allows music fans to explore the roots of the German capital's love affair with clubs and underground scenes.

Starting with the city's rebirth in 1990 after the Berlin Wall was demolished, the film tells the story right up until the modern day and is stuffed with valuable insight from Berlin's most important musical luminaries, including interviews with Juan Atkins, Dr. Motte, Dimitri Hegemann (founder of the club Tresor), Marc Houle, Monolink, Pan-Pot, Mathias Kaden, Nela, Alexander Krüger, Ekaterina and FreedomB.

It also takes viewers to some of the city's most famous dance hotspots such as legendary label Tresor and iconic nightclub Berghain.

Originally produced and distributed by Apple Music, 'The Sound Of Berlin' is now available to stream on YouTube. Check it out below.
