Microglobe: Easy Dance & Musichall, Frankfurt an der Oder

Dave Rimmer, MOJO, January 1994

IN THE CRAMPED LITTLE DJ BOOTH AT THE EASY DISCO, Frankfurt an der Oder – east Germany city of flatblocks and border posts – Berlin DJ Marcus Lopez is swivelling between two decks and box of records, cutting between fragments of rhythm. Some old electro drum pattern...something Latin-sounding...sequenced handclaps in the rhythm of the "we want you as a new recruit" bit from Village People's 'In The Navy'...none lasting more than a bar or two.
