Mijk van plays “Schöneberg” live on German TV (1994)

schöneberglive1Marcos López and me were invited to disucss and perform in the music show Eurotops on East-German TV channel MDR. The topic was dance music and how people interact with it. Another guest was Frank Farian, producer of Boney M, Milli Vanilli, and others.
Riding high on the wave of success of our Marmion smasher Schöneberg and of Techno in general, we were very self-confident and with the same self-confidence I stepped into the ring and performed Schöneberg live, with no DAT or strings attached, just the way I would play live in a club or rave with my Ensoniq ASR-10. 
So why did I bring those fancy dancers? I actually did not bring them, they were hanging around at the entrance of the club, where the show was about to ve produced. When I unpacked my big equipment cases, they recognized us and asked, if they could dance a little, while I play. I told them to check with the TV crew and if staff would agree, I wouldn’t mind either.
Don’t know whatever happened to them after this show.
So now check some 90s Techno goodness on YouTube.
