Das Boot

Juddering Teutonic techno for Tuesday, the theme tune of German film and TV series Das Boot by Klaus Doldinger, reworked in 1991 by U96. In your face keyboard stabs, robotic voices and bleepy sonar noises. Wunderbar.

U96 were a group of dance music producers from Hamburg. The single was followed in 1992 by an album with more Second World War submarine themed tracks- Der Kommandant, Sonar Sequences, Ambient Underworld among them- but I don’t think I’ve ever heard it, just this single. It was redone in 1993 and various times since.
