Online service of the week: NRJ Deutsch (Energy Deutsch) Pop music in German from Switzerland

June 16th, 2011 No comments

Pop music in German, a rising phenomenon for a long time gets a deluxe treatment in this commercial-free station based in Zurich.

Within the same hour you can appreciate both the classic and new, the rapping and the yapping, the sublime and the comic, from Falco to Peter Fox, from the Toten Hosen to Rammstein.  All tunes ooze a single thing in common: hip.

Granted, sometimes acts are clones of established groups in English (cue Fertig Los!), but most of the time you will see creativity bursting through the seams.

It has not been until recently that the station started to add IDs to their radio streams, so that any of those catchy lyrics are a couple of clicks away.

Additional stations in this website:
Energy 80s
Energy Swiss (for swiss-german and francophones alike)
Energy 90s

All stations are available from the Flash-based selector to the right of their home page.
