A new fragrance based on the scent inside the original Tresor club in Berlin, which closed in 2005 before relocating and reopening in 2007, has been created.
The fragrance will come packaged with the first 300 copies to be sold of a new Russian translation edition of techno history book 'Der Klang Der Familie'. The new edition, which is being released to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, will mark the first time that the book, written by Sven Von Thülen and Felix Denk, has been officially translated to Russian.
Last week, Tresor owner Dmitri Hegemann teased details of a new club opening in a basement space in his birth region of Westphalia, northwestern Germany.
Now, the founder has revealed more details about the new venue, tentatively named Tresor.West, including its location in Dortmund.
The owner of legendary German techno club Tresor is set to open a new club.
Dimitri Hegemann will launch a new, as-of-yet unnamed club in a basement space in his birth region of Westphalia in northwestern Germany.
Posting via his Facebook page, Hegemann spoke about his plans for the "raw basement" club and how it would boast an "excellent soundsystem and effective acoustic treatment".

Featuring Madrid-born, Berlin-based DJ/producer, Reka, in our Fresh Kicks series might feel a little strange. In truth, she’s been embedded in electronic music for over 15 years. After several eras of change though, it has only been in this decade that she has truly found and flourished in her artistic identity.
In the early hours of the morning on November 10, 1938, anti-Semitic rioting raged across Nazi Germany, in a pogrom that saw more than 100 Jews killed and 267 synagogues destroyed by SA paramilitary, alongside thousands of Jewish businesses. The violent attacks, which would go on to become known as the Night Of Broken Glass, or Kristallnacht, saw Jewish homes, hospitals and schools burned and looted, as German authorities watched on. The events would eventually lead to the Holocaust, one of the largest genocides in the history of humanity.
“We see hate coming to a boil, and if we’re not careful it’s going to encompass all of us,” he continues. “In politics there’s so much division. For us, the music is that bridge to bring us together. So, we boldly play these tracks to plant seeds in people’s spirits. The music we’re doing is symbolic of tearing down walls. We’re agents of change. We’re about spreading love, the gospel and good news to a lost world.” Hood constantly refers to St.
“I knew the experience was invaluable and what I was learning was precious, watching the speed and the accuracy of how [Mad Mike Banks and Jeff Mills] worked, and how many hours they put into their studio time. They were making history, and that was my example. I wanted to be like that”
Jeff Mills has spoken about the difference between techno in the 1990s and the genre today in a recent interview with Telekom Electronic Beats, which focusses on his jazz quartet project, Spiral Deluxe.
“Techno music was this up-tempo, driving, sometimes very dark, very aggressive type of dance music that derived from electronic rock or house music or Detroit techno. This is what techno was, pretty much, in the ‘90s," he said.
Tresor Records will reissue a string of classic techno albums from November.
Taking the angle "Masters then, masters now" the series will welcome back Jeff Mills' ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 3’, ‘Internal Empire’ by Robert Hood, Juan Atkins presenting Infiniti's ‘Skynet’, Drexciya’s infamous ‘Neptune’s Lair’ and ‘Arrange and Process Basic Channel Tracks’ from Scion.
The re-issue of Mills' 'Waveform Transmission Vol. 3' was announced last week.
The original entrance to techno club Tresor is being immortalised as an exhibit in a new museum.
The Humboldt Forum is a new museum in the Berlin palace which will open at the end of 2019, where the legendary venue’s door will be on display among artefacts that celebrate Germany’s rich history, including mosaics from the Holy Roman Empire.
The Humboldt Forum said: “The door reminds us of the pulsating party culture of the 1990s and symbolises the city’s free spaces, which gave birth to a lively cultural scene.
"This object truly reflects Berlin’s eventful history.”
