The Red Bull Academy Blog translated interesting documents about the German electronic scene during the communist era (1981-1989).

Interviewed a few years ago, the east german pioneers recall live performances, the crowd at that time and how difficult it was to get their hands on gears such as synthesizers. All the producers and musicians mentioned have tracks featured on the compilation Mandarinen Träume: Electronic Escapes from the Deutsche Demokraktische Republik 1981-1989

Read this interesting piece of history here or just listen to one of their track below.
