Behind you is a canal. In front of you is an intimate gathering of 200 people anticipating the return of one of Berlin’s staples of electronic music. There’s been a two year Covid hiatus. During that time, Bruno has finished an album with Kool Keith and another album for Perlon. Nobody is sure what will happen…and then it does.
What we hear is, perhaps, a continuation of the Live at Contact in Tokyo: the stripped backed accessibility of Bruno’s live sound. But this one is fresher and bigger. The things we loved about his live sets are still intact – the spontaneity, groviness and sexiness. Shakers and snares galore. Bruno’s flow keeps you on the dance floor like always. However, With Live at Club Der Visionäre there are newer elements: stronger sound, bigger bass lines. What stands out the most here may be the frequent use of his vocals. It seems like they have always been there, but now they are more pronounced, full and warm. This is new, but oddly familiar.
