To commemorate 15 wild years of ‘lust for life’ (= Lebensfreude) and crazy parties, the Berlin label will put out the best hidden gems of its history, one for each year.
“The Lost Dub Plates: The B-Sides Of 15 Years Of Lebensfreude Records” will bring back rare and timeless B-sides from the Berlin underground that only DJ connoisseurs will have heard of. Additionally, this release is also indispensable for understanding the true Berlin Techno underground and what it really was like before everyone had a smart phone.
The 2 label heads Gunne & Zuckermann will personally go touring together to celebrate the spirit of the original Berlin rave nights, and days - a rare occasion to see them perform their (in)famous freestyle Back2Back which will shake Berlin clubs, South American Techno basements, and Asian party spots to the rhythm of the true sound of Techno - ‘lust for life’ full-on!
