Summer in Berlin had a difficult standing on Alphaville’s 1984 album Forever Young next to the namesake hit and the unforgotten Big In Japan. But there was Christopher von Deylen, a teenager who absorbed the song.

Today, von Deylen is known as Schiller. “Back then, ‘Berlin’ sounded like the ultimate wanderlust to me,” he explains. The rework of the Alphaville song is the heart of a new Schiller album.

Adding the well-known Schiller sound, Summer in Berlin transpires to a contemporary electronic masterpiece without losing the unique 80s feeling.
