1994

This was the year Techno really took off in Germany and commercialisation of techno (music and culture) started. Marusha's Somewhere over the rainbow stayed 30 weeks in the German charts, 23 weeks in the Swiss charts and 8 weeks in the Austrian charts. This track opened the gates to easy to digest electronic music for the rest of the decade.

The Loveparade 1994 in Berlin had between 110'000 and 120'000 visitors.

In the Steve Mason Experience show acid lines are almost everywhere in 1994. Steve went for faster sounds with Techno and (Hard)Trance being the predominant genre. About 50% of the records Steve played have a German (artis or label) background.
