Hamburg undercover – these records shape the image of the city, or the other way around

© Blogbuzzter

The Hamburg music scene is very diverse. Since the 1990s, hip hop and German rap have had a fixed place here. And the same way the city has shaped the artists and texts, it has also provided inspiration and motifs for some record covers.

Blogbuzzter and Falk Schacht introduce a few motifs and show you the places they were taken.

Read, look, listen, be amazed

Yes, Hamburgs’ art is for sale – namely here: in the Hanseplatte

Between the districts Schanzenviertel and Karoviertel – more precisely next to the old abattoir Alter Schlachthof – you will find the Hanseplatte. Here, you will see “Kultur und Dönekens”, meaning: Music, books, posters, jewellery, clothes … all bearing the distinctive stamp of Hamburg. 

For example, the latest book by Heinz Strunk on the Hamburg serial killer Fritz Honka. Or records by DJ Koze’s label Pampa Records, or just jewellery from the Pudel collection.

It’s always worth visiting, because here, you will definitely find the best souvenirs or a present for yourself, which is better than even a Hamburger could give you.
