DAS WASTELAND RECORDS
Wilde Zwanziger Klang
It was on those cruel and unusual Berlin evenings towards the end of 2020 when the lights remained off across the city that never usually sleeps that Das Wasteland Records eased into existence. Against a backdrop of calamity, curfew and confusion, it became clear that the venues, clubs and bars woven into the very fabric of the city wouldn’t be welcoming musicians and revellers for foreseeable.
So, with the help of a couple of friends, countless late nights and a few too many Spätburgunders, music photographer Martyn Goodacre conjured up an outlet and an opportunity to continue celebrating the amazing musicians and artists that call this freewheeling, free-spirited city home — both literally and spiritually — whilst encapsulating the vibrations of a new decade: the sound of the roaring twenties.
