OK so here’s how it went- we were dished an hour’s worth of hardcore kicks and breaks from X&Trick, then were pulverized for an hour 15 by VSnares, and then Enduser reduced us to quivering piles of goo by playing over an hour and a half himself. So not only did Enduser play the tunes in his normal set, but he also threw in some unreleased stuff as well as some older tracks that rarely find their way into the live sets anymore.
Footnote #1: When I go out to these clubs to make these recordings, the vast majority of the time I am more or less left to my own devices and as long as I stay out of the way of the people who work there, everything proceeds swimmingly. Well, this was not one of those nights, and I would require about a day and a half to relay the story of everything that transpired this night, but suffice to say I simply would not have gotten this recording if not for the heroic efforts of Nicolas from Ad Noiseam, who was busy djing this show but still made time to help me out. That guy rules. A million thanks to him.
Footnote #2: Berghain is one of the best clubs on the planet. It’s in a renovated industrial building and has a super large performance area with sound system that could power a stadium. Go there and hear it for yourself.
Enduser live at Berghain, Berlin, 14 May 2010.
