peter synthetik - captain berlin ep

This 12” is a soundtrack for a film by Jörg Buttgereit. There are three versions of the same song, entitled ‘Captiain Berlin’. The original version (1982) is a nice piece of pulsating minimalism and will attract a good crowd on the dancefloor. There is also a live version (from 1984), which is a little harsher and more monotonous, somewhat like early DAF.
The B-side is filled with a twelve minutes long remix from 1983. This mix has elektro elements in it like vocoder vocals and a clearer beat. Although this remix is still in the typical 80’s style I prefer the original version and the live version. Maybe also because of the duration of the remix.
Captain Berlin is a nice cult piece like you can expect from the Kernkrach label.
