A new pair of compilations, ‘No Photos On The Dance Floor! Berlin Techno 1992–Today’, are set to explore the development and history of Berlin techno over the last thirty years via a number of key tracks, as DJ mag reports.
There are also appearances across the compilations from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Ellen Allien, Ben Klock and Modeselektor. Find out more about this compilation here.
The compilations have been compiled by Heiko Hoffmann, and follow on from a photography and video art exhibition by the same name that was co-curated by Hoffmann and shown at C/O Berlin in late 2019. The exhibition included works by photographers and visual artists such as Wolfgang Tillmans, Berghain’s Sven Marquardt, and Camille Blake, that dealt with Berlin’s club culture since the fall of the wall. It was followed in 2020 by a book of the same name which place images from the exhibition alongside interviews and personal essays.
The first part of ‘No Photos On The Dance Floor! Berlin Techno 1992–Today’ will be released on June 4th, while the second part will follow on June 25th. They will both be released digitally and on vinyl, while there will also be expanded CD editions featuring additional tracks by Ricardo Villalobos, Rødhåd and Efdemin.
