German Magazine De:Bug Announce “Final Issue”



We’ve long been fans of cult Berlin based electronic music magazine De:Bug here at DT and with a heavy heart report today that next months print issue may very well be the outlets last with the magazine posting on its blog “The next edition of De:Bug will probably be the last. No, not a joke. Time to say goodbye.”

No further reasons have yet been given as to why they have taken the decision to close down the print arm of the magazine other than a general reference to “the dramas experienced currently in print.” So what next for De:Bug? Well there is plenty of hope that the mag founded in 1997 by Sascha Kösch, Benjamin Weiss and Riley Reinhold to cover “elektronischen Lebensaspekten,” or “the electronic aspects of life” will continue in a digital format not dissimilar in design to our own pages here at DT with the De:Bug crew commenting “Will [De:Bug] continue online? We really hope so. We ask for your patience until we know how and if [the magazine] will continue.” .

Whatever their decision we’d like to thank them for the memories and wish everyone over in Berlin the very best for the future.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
