2001 : 01 "Chicky Boom" by Thomas Brinkmann

My favorite memory from college happened at a dance party. We're talking 1986, so techno and house were these amazingly new things. A German exchange student friend of mine stepped up to the turntables with his bag of records, and, to everybody’s surprise, turned in an excellent, seamless set. With his last record, he grabbed the mic and announced, "I was born in Germany, but my soul is pure funk." This song reminds me of him, and it was made by a funky German: Thomas Brinkmann.
