Seven years since his last memorable appearance at the Gasholder, techno icon Paul Kalkbrenner is coming back with his own personal show on Friday October 20th. He will present ‘Back to the Future‘ on the Westergasfabriek terrain as part of Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), with DJ Pierre & Phuture, Simina Grigoriu and Michel de Hey.
The mixtape series, which was created by the German producer some years ago, is based on remixes, techno classics and songs that he himself grew up with and have remained with him since his early years. Now, the project – which comes in association with Monumental Productions – has evolved into an eponymous tour, with which Paul also shows his personal development as an artist.
“The music I’ve found and will use during Back to the Future is music that hasn’t only changed Berlin, but also other capitals of electronic music, such as Amsterdam. The second half of the eighties and the first half of the nineties have been pivotal and decisive for me and for the entire European techno scene. ADE and Awakenings are also committed to techno culture and history, which is why I can’t wish for a better stage for Back to the Future” says Paul.
