of a life getting around in his own private plane but his passion for music has been with him from the start. music up to. music always meant a lot to me maybe it's because i grew up with down radio in the g.d.r. but i always listen to west berlin radio and for me it was the only connection to the outside world from. usually i'm single or something which i was amazed by the only nineteen is shortly after german reunification and the burn in techno club paul van dyke finds his vocation electronic music. testing goes on professionally because i'm a d.j. because i love music and because i'm a total freak going to total fanatic when it comes to this kind of music. then becomes the center of the techno movement called bundling delivers the soundtrack to major events such as the love of her age. he starts producing his own tracks with the success of his single tell me why reach is number seven in
the british charts. one of his albums is nominated for a grammy. place . called bundle like then set top his own record label bondage records and presents radio shows in germany and music usa. but in spite of selling five million albums from twenty thirty none of his singles make it to the challenge. must be an explosion was equal to what was different about electronic music or the whole scene was that although it was a scene where people worked professionally it wasn't actually an industry. as in
the meantime it is an industry what you see in the top forty charts now for instance are all products of the music industry. continue traveling the globe to perform his d.j. sets not huge but every twenty sixteen things change dramatically. at a festival in the netherlands he fell off the stage six me to drop. and maybe i'm still leading in various places and i have to say i was really really lucky there was a specialist number logical clinic about ten minutes away from the venue. venue about if it hadn't been traced near the university medical center but say in amsterdam i wouldn't be sitting here today the damage to my brain would have been so serious that i might not have made it worse you could be in the station so i think it's. a question could you speak. to learn basic things again from scratch. without the strength of my wife by
my side without margarita i wouldn't matter. if she hadn't been there as my reason to live i would have given up and had to. have the drama. was soon back in his studio and just a few months off to be an accident he was back on stage. yes. it wasn't like my d.j. sets were part of a therapy for that day i want to be back on stage. and now he's in his late forty's and that's just as much as they have. the secret to his ongoing success. so i'm going to i think one of the reasons i'm still on the scene is that i'm authentic i only do what i stand by musically. i don't succumb to any pressure to keep. and i do my own thing michel be the

a journalist or did my political convictions i couldn't earn a high school let alone go to college so a career as a journalist was a total nonstarter. thanks but all that changed in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. whole then died and his mother had just been given permission to leave east germany when the berlin wall fell. there's some friends in hamburg a t.v. was on there was a news flash and we thought it must be some kind of. joke now my grandmother called back then she lived near beulah felt in the west and she said have you heard the news and were like no way. this is. the events come ficken fast less than a year after the fall of the berlin wall germany is reunited ben dyke moves to berlin and explores the city from it i want to name the many good companies that existed in east german our of course not economically compatible nothing worked so
all of a sudden there were all these empty promises no one was prepared to take responsibility for and if you innovative people came along and they brought a few beer crates and started their turntables on them have you got some loudspeakers sold on their turns and that's on the berlin club scene got started and not seen a virgin until here in berlin is called club because they want vandyke shapes the beginnings of the techno movement. there's a lot of looking back at this small subculture now basement somewhere and see how it turned into one of the biggest music scenes in the world a better future for the family with the could put a vegetable on the sabbath not them got some great memories of that time and i'm really glad i could be part of it all. music playing in two thousand and five he performed the song he isn't via which means we are us with singer paid to have not playing live at the ceremony for the fifteenth anniversary of german reunification it was paul van dyke's musical tribute to the historical event.
