The Golden Deer Of Schöneberg

The Golden Deer of Schöneberg

Between my fingers you can see the golden deer at Volkspark Schöneberg which was featured on the cover of the 2010 remixes of Marmion’s classic Schöneberg. Now 20 years after the original release of the track by Marcos López and myself on Superstition Records, it sounds fresh as ever.
