One of the world’s biggest electronic producers, Paul Kalkbrenner, is known for his headlining performances at the biggest festivals and stadium spectacles in front of tens of thousands of fans which had been, before him, reserved only for the world’s biggest bands such as U2 and the Rolling Stones. His performance on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, before half a million people, will be remembered in the history of music as an unattainable number even for the most famous world names, for a long time to come. The symbol of Berlin, as the world capital of contemporary electronic music, is undoubtedly Paul Kalkbrenner. The creator of electronic classics, including the multi-platinum Sky & Sand, is the main actor in the cult film and album of the same name Berlin Calling, which spread via the Internet as a kind of techno bible, and interest in the film is best illustrated by the fact that it has been permanently playing at the Berlin Kino Central!
Kalkbrenner began his rich career in 1992, and his first release for Berlin DJ boss Ellen Allien and her renowned record label BPitch Control was released in 1999. During the past two decades and seven studio albums, he has moved the boundaries of electronic music to unimaginable dimensions, primarily because he is not a DJ, but performs live, exclusively with his songs with which he constantly dictates new trends in electronic music.
