a kind of techno that sways between the polarity of emotional overload and concrete rationale – hence immediacy, which is what sascha funke is all about.
sascha listens to a lot of euro-dance-pop as a twelve year-old his first purchased record after the fall of the wall was “technotronic mega mix”.
first contact with techno and house is thanks to marusha’s radio show “rave satellite;” sascha buys his first techno record “the seawolf” (underground resistance/ ur).
he visits the legendary berlin club walfisch for the first time as a raver; he organizes parties in youth clubs in the east berlin section lichtenberg and thus encounters his first dj experiences with trance.
