Die vierteilige Doku-Reihe beleuchtet die Soundsystem Kultur in Stuttgart.

Protagonisten wie Selector Manitu von Lucky Punch und Uli Nefzer von Sentinel Sound berichten von ersten Dancehall Parties Anfang der 90er-Jahre, dem einzigen Reggae Plattenladen der Stadt oder legendären Locations wie dem „Rocker33“.

Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Zeitreise!

On the one hand, there are great examples of American-sounding Boogie and late Disco. On the other hand, the mix features rare Modern Soul and Funk joints taken off of local samplers and private pressings, boogie-ish experimental Electro from tapes, some AOR-ish/Yacht-y tunes, as well as tracks on the boarderline of NDW (German New Wave) and Synth Pop. Providing a flawless non-stop sound experience, “Germany Boogie Essentials” is an exciting dj mix that any Boogie, Disco, Funk and Synth lover should check out!

Im sechsten Jahr in Folge gedenkt unser Buddy Marc Hype mit mit seiner Mixtape-Serie “GONE… but not forgotten” den im Vorjahr verstorbenen Musikern.
Auch im Jahr 2018 sind zahlreiche Künstler von uns gegangen, an Material für das 2018’er Tribute-Tape mangelte es (leider) nicht.
