Celebrating 15 years of dub techno.
Kenneth Christiansen is a dance music all-rounder. He founded Copenhagen's top club, Culture Box, with Loke Busch and runs Echocord, a popular dub techno label that was launched in 2002. Christiansen has also been a DJ since the late '90s, spinning regularly at Tresor in Berlin and other European hotspots. A key name in the Danish scene, Christiansen has enjoyed a long career in electronic music, which stretches back to working in record shops in the '90s. He soon became a driving force in house and techno, thanks to his role at Culture Box and ongoing efforts to develop his home town's dance music scene. In light of his label's 15th anniversary celebrations, Christiansen visited our Berlin office for a chat with Matt Unicomb about his experiences so far, where he recounted his earliest memories of electronic music and the pressures of running a club in Copenhagen.
