This is the video for German techno legend Westbam’s new single. featuring the vocals of Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs fame. You Need The Drugs is a moody and beautiful electronic soundscape, driven by metronome military beats, toped with Butler’s impassioned lament.
The video is actually part of a documentary being but together by Joerg Hoppe. Titled B-Movie, the film will portray West Berlin in the 80s using found footage from the period and our friend Mark Reeder’s point-of-view, that of a Brit living in cold war Berlin.
You Need The Drugs is taken from Westbam’s forthoming new album God’s Road, with features more collaboration with the likes of New Order’s Bernard Sumner, Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers and Iggy Pop.
