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.
