    I’m not surprised about Berlin being a hedonistic mecca for clubs. I didn’t watch the full documentary; I’ll save that for a day when I have more time. My point being the germans have always known their sh*t when it comes to music. Leastaways when it comes to the sort that I listen to: new wave, post-punk, industrial, goth – that whole dance scene what was my scene back in the day. They *still* do it well and put out amazing compilations and extendo-mixes (as I fondly like to call them – although I’m not necessarily fond of really long mixes outside of a club scene and those don’t exist in the real world anymore – not any real world I know of, at least) . I buy as many of them as I can find when I have the extra €€€€ because they don’t come cheap unless I can get them in $$.
