11.30am – Trans-Hamburg Express
So at last, after covering as much of the city and its amazing sounds as we could, it’s time to head home, which means one last S-bahn journey up to the airport – a one-way ticket, direct shot from the heart of Hamburg to its airport on the outskirts. Passing through Ohlsdorf, we take one last recording of the metro to remind us of our journey home.
London-based Alan Bleay has taken this one on, and with his rapid-fire, rhythmic remix he propels us back to the airport with a sense of urgency and compulsion. He’s composed this remix, just like his previous Cities and Memory mix, by making every single element, drums included, from the original source recording – quite a feat!
