Paul meets two legendary Brits who’ve made Berlin their special place. Daniel Miller, founder of Mute Records, and the man behind the original electro-erotic classic Warm Leatherette, talks about how Berlin inspired him and Mute artists such as The Birthday Party and Depeche Mode in the 80s to his first DJ set at Berghain. Then, Paul heads to Kreuzberg to meet Mancunian legend, label boss Mark Reeder, who came here forty years ago to buy some records, never left, and how he helped organise illegal punk gigs in East Berlin under the noses of the Stasi.
