Time for some soothing electronics on the Music to Love Berlin playlist. While Rock'n'Roll will always remain my poison of choice, I love the chilled out vibes of ''Follow You''. This track makes perfect background tune for just sitting down and collecting your thoughts, but without being boring.
This upbeat punk from Billy Liar, a Scottish musician who like all of us has a thing from Berlin, is a perfect song for when you're on your way to a massive hangover. Which, let's face it, is a very common proceeding around here.
This track could easily become a decent punk anthem for Berlin's cool kids. You really can't question the magic of this city when such legends like Ramones give it to you straight.
One of the things I love about being a MusicTo curator is that I get some extra motivation to dig up forgotten gems like this one.
I'm usually a complete sucker for lyrics, and can't really truly fall in love with a song unless I've taken a long trip down the memory lane and found a relevant moment of my life to fit the artist's words.
Wait a bit with dismissing this entry for being a bit cliche - the track comes from 1994, so that time when Rammstein was a dope Berlin band - not an internationally acclaimed hard rock sensation yet.
Flemming Borby is a Danish singer and songwriter who's proved his passion for music time and time again, in various projects spanning over decades now, such as the danish band GREENE and his very own project LABRADOR.
Thanks a lot for this submission proving again that Berlin is so much more than a city - for us all, it's a platform for sharing vibes that move us.
On his latest, amazing album, Iggy hints at his affection towards our beloved capital with the song I'm featuring this week. It's a moody love anthem and my inner soundtrack every time I'm drinking prosecco. Or passing a sign on the street which advertises "schnell Imbiss". Which happenss a lot.
She's been one of the most colorful personalities in Berlin, entertaining people with music and the parties she used to host at her club Chez Romy Haag. The origins of her story prove she’d been predestined to come here with an element of a self fulfilling prophecy
This cosmopolitan disco punk rock anthem from an unprecedented persona in Berlin's queer and music world Merlin Dietrich is a great fit for a Berlin themed party playlist.
This funky track from Donut Heart conveys so much of the Berlin spirit that I don't even know where to start.
Both intriguing and soothing electronic sounds
This calm tune is perfect for a chilled out Sunday evening when you are just trying to achieve some inner harmony, make sense of the oftentimes messy reality, and get ready to tackle the week.
Happy belated 70th birthday to the ultimate saviour of all lost punk souls! Iggy's the guy who's been to hell and back and narrated the process in his profoundly beautiful and truthful lyrics.
Einstürzende Neubauten with their charismatic leader Blixa Bargeld are Berlin's very own pride and joy in the category of both industrial and avant-garde music.
An iconic party track from around 5 years ago. Used to blast from speakers of virtually every dance club in town.
Early Depeche Mode track from an album recorded partly at Hansa Studio back in the glorious 80s when bizarre construction noises were just as common in their songs as particularly cheesy synthesizer interludes and all Martin Gore was wearing were S&M outfits.
This band kind of incorporates all I love about Berlin: great rock'n'roll music, a laid back approach to things and promoting the ultimate sexual freedom.
