A new ebook has surfaced that gives readers an inside look at Berghain, the legendary techno club in Germany. It details the history of the venue, revealing the beginning of the techno movement and what has allowed Berghain to evolve into the special place it is today.
"Deep, dark bass tones are seeping through the walls of the old East German power plant, giving the night revelers, patiently waiting outside, a hint of what’s hidden on the other side. The autumn air is cold and damp; the Berlin night impenetrably dark. But within these walls, a different kind of darkness awaits: a legendary club in old East Berlin, where techno reigns and the limits of decadence are constantly being pushed."
Mats Wurnell, the author of the Berghain story is a music journalist from Sweden who has been a member of the dance music scene for more than 15 years as a DJ, promoter, label owner, music reviewer, PR consultant and journalist. "I wanted to tell the story about a unique place," says Mats, "where techno fans from all over the world gather and express their love for music, joy and dance. It's one of those places where you forget about your everyday struggles and just let go.”
Included in the ebook Mats interviews DJs such as Joel Mull, Ali ”Perc” Wells and Daniel Wang, along with german music journalist Thaddeus Herrmann.
The ebook is available for purchase from Amazon for $2.99
