Back 2 Tape: Copenhagen

Back 2 Tape

The port and former merchant city of Copenhagen is considered one of the most expensive and at the same time most attractive metropolises in the world. In the annual rankings of the most livable cities on our planet, Copenhagen is always among the top 10. No wonder, after all, numerous green spaces, a high level of cleanliness, life on the waterfront and an extensive cultural programme characterise the Danish city.

A symbol for open-mindedness and battles in the middle of the crowd

You feel the mutual inspiration, the mutual respect - just like in hip-hop. Dancer Sune Pejtersen likes to be here. Christiania is the symbol of free thinking in Copenhagen and a real magnet, especially for young people. The hip-hop culture is extremely lively here, you can literally feel it pulsating, says Pejtersen, the Copenhagener by choice.

From B-Boys, for B-Boys

"Floor Wars" is a place of exchange and thus reflects what this culture can mean: "Hip-hop contributes more to international understanding and unification than politicians ever could," Pejtersen thinks.

The story of a beat

Without question, Copenhagen is a surprising mecca for all those interested in hip-hop. I meet my last guests in Copenhagen at the very place where they started their career.

The brothers Mads and Mathias are "Gebuhr". The Copenhageners' hip-hop career began at the age of just 12, and at 14 the first danceable sound emerged from producer Mathias' computer.

In 2018, [music__journalist__Niko__Hüls] embarked on a journey to the roots of hip-hop in Germany in "Back to Tape". In cooperation with the hip-hop magazine Backspin.de, the Porsche Newsroom project "Back to Tape" sheds light on cultural influences through the four central elements of hip-hop: rap, DJing, breakdance and graffiti. In Part 1, Niko Hüls visits Berlin.
