Westbam – this name is normally associated with the Love Parade, the 90s, Mayday and strange raver outfits. However, one should not forget that Westbam was one of the most important pioneers in Techno music, not only in Germany, but globally. Now, the Berlin-based DJ celebrates his 30th anniversary on stage with a new album, which features collaborations with artists such Iggy Pop, Kayne West and Lil Wayne. It took me by surprise that the first single You need the drugs turned out that great. The video is also really worth seeing; it consists of pictures from West Berlin’s underground night life in the 70s and 80s. More after the jump.
