"DJ Jauche & Karat - Der blaue Planet" is a remarkable reimagining of a classic. In 1982, the band Karat released their iconic album "The Blue Planet," which included the equally famous single of the same name. This single achieved gold status in both East and West Germany at the time and has since become a beloved cult song, especially in the former East of the country.

Now, 40 years later, the lyrics and music of "Der blaue Planet" have lost none of their relevance and continue to resonate with audiences. Berlin-based artist Oliver Marquardt, also known as DJ Jauche, collaborated with members of the original band to recreate and record "Der blaue Planet" once more. Every element of the song was meticulously re-recorded, reconstructed, and reassembled to breathe new life into this timeless piece of music.

Marquardt's first step was to reconstruct a version of the song that stayed true to the original, serving as the foundation for producing additional mixes. As a result, there is now a new recording of "Der blaue Planet," featuring Claudius Dreilich as the vocalist. Claudius has taken on the role of frontman and singer for "Karat" for many years, following in his father's footsteps.

The primary goal throughout this project was to preserve the character and essence of the original, making this reissue a tribute to the enduring legacy of "Der blaue Planet."

"DJ Jauche & Karat - Der blaue Planet" on Kaskadeur Records (KR 07) is a remarkable journey that bridges the past and present, breathing new life into a beloved classic for a new generation of listeners. Discover the timeless allure of "Der blaue Planet" and experience the continuation of its musical legacy.
