CLAUS BACHOR _ PSYCHO THRILL Cologne
PSYCHO THRILL Cologne - founder CLAUS BACHOR is one of the German long-term House and Techno DJs at all, however not standing still yet: The Psycho Thrill label run by him has just turned 20 and Bachor is still doing bookings all over Europe, the United States and beyond.

His long-term affiliations with Detroit techno music and also his journalistic involvement with the topic of Detroit Techno/ Electro/ Chicago-House as an author/editor over the years has made him a world renowned expert. This experience and vast knowledge of the techno genre has led him to appearing in many documentaries, the most noteable being 'High Tech Soul' [ http://www.myspace.com/hightechsoul ] which focused on the creation of Detroit techno music. Other film credits include being involved in the highly acclaimed 'We Call it Techno' [ http://www.wecallittechno.net/ ] documentary which focused on Germany's early techno scene and club culture.
Bachor has shared the stage with Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Blake Baxter, Eddie`Flashin´Fowlkes, Josh Wink, Ben Simms, James Ruskin, Dave Clarke, Mark Broom, Ryan Elliot, Norman Nodge and so very many more consistently. And he has been rocking venues and pummeling ear drums since the dawn of the infamous Cologne RAVE CLUB scene in 1988. He encompasses everything that electronic music is about, while never getting complacent with his sound. The original “waxmaster” always brings forth a stellar 100% vinyl performance that keeps his crowd both dancing and thirsty for the next drop. Without using the usual hype for trends, he has also managed to gain a position as multi-communicator in the German Techno and House scene, in which he is always convincing as a DJ till today.

One more night at RAVE CLUB _ fall' 89 _ another part of Claus Bachor's „LOST TAPES“.

Cologne’s legendary RAVE CLUB [ http://www.psychothrill.de/?page=item&post=339 ] had caused quite a stir as a club institution in the Dome city during the years 1988 and 1989, not only throughout Germany, but also on an European basis – e.g. via features in FACE and I-D, as well as through its monthly schedule and its bookings [et al. Marshall Jefferson, Kym Mazelle, EPMD, Todd Terry…] together with the residents. For the first time, there now were club nights in Cologne, which were solely dedicated to House and Acid without any compromise and these also became an example in many respects for anything substantial that has been going on in Cologne’s night life ever since, be it Space Club, Elevator, Warehouse, “PSYCHO THRILL” or “Total Confusion” and which laid a foundation for all kinds of sounds that any Psycho Thrill guest has been experiencing since 1991 on a regular basis: Get right on matey – there are no rules, fear is unknown and sleep is out of question!

“This rather techy sixth prime-time part from a mix series of myself- sorry here again for a few slight rumbles – was recorded during one of my rare solo nights without my partner Roland Casper sometime in November of 1989. It was done with a crappy RAIN mixer lacking gain control, only allowing semi-professional monitoring and I would kick any promoter’s ass for this today. The DJ booth also was exposed to some disturbances by visitors, which accounts for some of the skips during the mix. But the complete works of euphoric clubbers and the extraordinary atmosphere, which was created by the combination of a very good sound system, light and sound [two strobes, a fog machine, two flowers], made this club experience so absolutely valuable. That was the place, where we started the House and Techno “shit” first in Cologne.” [Claus Bachor about Rave Club Cologne]

This 7th mix part of Claus Bachor's RAVE CLUB Cologne mix series also features another special track collection of classic HOUSE music that conjures up the 4/4-class of '89, and its unpredicted blend of Deep-House/Garage, Acid, HipHouse, EBM including early Techno and Detroit Techno.

The mixwork went under sound restoration by Cologne's finest JEAN BARTH [ http://soundcloud.com/jean-h-u-i-barth ] from some TDK tapes (that were recorded on a Yamaha tape recorder, so the quality is poor at times, but it is an authentic sound document of Cologne’s club life in the late 80s on the other hand) and got finally re-mastered there.
