PorschexBackspin - Back to Tape

Six cities, ten artists, a car and a good deal of rap: In a series of guest interviews on #Porsche Newsroom, #nikohuls, boss of the German hip-hop magazine Backspin, reports on his road trip across Germany. More impressions can be found on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #porschexbackspin as well as on the Backspin TV YouTube channel.

Berlin is a hip-hop metropolis. Graffiti artists, rappers, DJs, breakdancers and beatboxers all have a place in the cultural mosaic that is Germany’s capital city, and all have their meeting point: the Warschauer Brücke, the former Teufelsberg listening station on the hills of Charlottenburg, in the Gretchen nightclub in Kreuzberg, on a walk through the Osthafen docks or at the Urban Spree cultural centre. Rappers such as Sido, Bushido, Fler and Peter Fox have given Berlin a unique sound which has been moulded over many years, while the city’s streets are decorated with works of art from graffiti stars like Amok or 1UP.

Berlin: The hip-hop capital city

The capital city has an almost magnetic effect on artists and producers, who head to Berlin to produce their albums on the banks of the river Spree. This includes, for example, Philip Böllhoff, Sipho Sililo, David Vogt and Hannes Büscher, better known as the successful Beatgees team of producers. Their Berlin premises include the recording studio used by Curse, aka Michael Kurth, who was putting the finishing touches to his new album “Die Farbe von Wasser” during our #porschexbackspin tour and granted me exclusive insights behind the scenes.
