“Klangkrieg was founded because we were all music fans. It was initially the extension of our living room into the clubs. By the mid-nineties, techno had become tired. The same beat everywhere, for hours on end. We missed all the other exciting music. So we started inviting a few bands and were then surprised by how many like-minded people there were. It literally exploded. People were ready for it. Just imagine: we had shows with barely audible violin sounds at prime time in the clubs. People were all sitting on the dance floor listening. And afterward, a breakcore DJ would play and the same people would go crazy. Today diverse booking is much more accepted but back then it was something quite new in Berlin.” Christoph Winkler
