    Season 3 - Electronic Cities (European-Düsseldorf) - Wolfgang Flür

    Season 3 - Electronic Cities (European-Düsseldorf) - Wolfgang Flür

    ⁠On Electronic Music Cities week - today, Wolfgang Flür. He spent most of his adult life in Düsseldorf. ⁠

    Born in 1947 in post-war Germany, Wolfgang Flür made his name in the band Kraftwerk, a band that was formed in Düsseldorf. The last time I met him was in 1997 when he released his first post-Kraftwerk album with his band Yamo. His latest album, Magazine 1, is a masterpiece, a mixture of old and new, a commentary on today's world, and also that of post-war Düsseldorf, from Flür's perspective. In this interview, we talk about his own personal history, about his plea for pacifism in Say No! through the Wolfgang Borchert poem of the same name, and the track Birmingham, the home base of his main collaborator on this album, Peter Duggal. He also talks about how Trans Europe Express inspired him to make his track Night Drive, and his emotional final meeting with ex-Kraftwerk bandmate, Florian Schneider, in Düsseldorf where he continues to reside today.⁠

    ⁠Electronic Cities - Podcast Interview with Sébastien Darchen is also online.⁠
    As well as with Martyn Ware, Mark Reeder, and WestBam from the Electronic Cities of Europe.

    Season 3 - Electronic Cities (European-Berlin) - Westbam

    On Electronic Music Cities week - WestBam, was born in Münster but spent his adult life in Berlin. ⁠

    ⁠From Münster to Berlin German DJ WestBam talks about his early life in Münster and his unconventional upbringing. This episode is an insight into an artist born into a culturally privileged background, but who, like many children do, rebelled against his hippie-era parents. Be aware that the sound in this episode is not perfect! He also talks about how he developed a manifesto as a teenager which described the DJ as the star of the future, and how music played a role in bringing down the Berlin Wall.⁠

    Season 3 - Electronic Cities (European-Berlin) - Mark Reeder

    Season 3 - Electronic Cities (European-Berlin) - Mark Reeder

    On Electronic Music Cities week - Mark Reeder, born and Manchester but moved to Berlin where he still lives.⁠

    Mark Redder has become the go-to man for the Berlin music scene. He moved to the then-divided city from Manchester in 1978 and quickly ensconced himself in what was then the West Berlin scene. He played in various bands, arranged the legendary performance in the then East Berlin for Die Toten Hosen, a german punk band, and was the first person to get an East German band on the influential 80s TV show The Tube. He was the face of the documentary B-Movie about the Berlin music scene between 1979 and 1989, which led to him traveling around the world and giving lectures about Berlin. He is credited with launching the career of DJ Paul van Dyk and is still active as a musician, music producer, and remixer. His latest release, in March 2022, is with Alanas Chosnau, a Lithuanian singer and producer of Iraqi/Kurdish origin, and is titled Life Everywhere. His insights into Berlin are enlightening for anyone interested in the historical importance of that city during and after the Cold War, and the development of the Electronic music scene.⁠

This podcast looks at his route into the pop video business from his first short films which caught the attention of Hollywood, his professional development through working as a film editor for the advertising industry in Stockholm, Sweden, and how he achieved his breakthrough as a music video director through Moby's 'James Bond theme', and Prodigy's 'Smack my Bitch Up' which led to Madonna's 'Ray of Light'. And also he talks further about Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Beyoncé, what those at the top of their game have in common, and what he brings to the mix when he works with them.
    He also talks about his films and series - particularly 'Spun', 'Lords of Chaos', and his latest Netflix Series 'Clark'.
