For many years the Manikin people have felt connected with the great music of the German electronic pioneers TANGERINE DREAM, KLAUS SCHULZE and ASHRA. Raised in the sixties and seventies in Berlin with the often unusual sounds of the so-called "Berlin School" Manikin Records dedicates itself to the maintenance and continuity of this music style.
Thus it was quite obvious to make these historic electronic sounds in a special BERLIN SCHOOL-Collection for the Memotron available to all fans of this musical genre. With the Tronexpert Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, whose collection amongst others contained two double manual Mk Vs of EDGAR FROESE and KLAUS SCHULZE as well as PETER BAUMANN's M 400, a big part of the original sounds of these heroes was available. Hajo Liese kindly lent his Arp Pro-Soloist synthesizer and the Elka Rhapsody 610 string machine for the synthetic TANGERINE DREAM noises.
