In 2008, Marcel Dettmann has seen his stock rise exponentially. He has done a handful of remixes (Scuba, Substance, Deetron, Len Faki, etc.), produced the moody MDR04 EP and shared record space with Pigon on their dual release Kamm/Plain (on Beatstreet). It's not that these accomplishments are prolific, it's that they are prophetic. Outside of the studio, Dettmann is a resident at Berghain, possibly the best club in Berlin. He is part of OstGut Ton Records, presently one of the most widely admired in technoland. He is best friends with Shed. Basically, he is homecoming king and we admire his crazy-square jawline from a distance...a distance especially expansive for those of us in the USA, for whom the internet is our best chance to get close to whatever revolution in electronic sound is happening in Berlin, the now (I can't exactly say new) hub of techno. That having been said, Dettmann is not shy to name classic Detroit house and techno among his influences; his particular brand is dark, jacking and with powerful restraint. The Berghain 02 Mix was huge this summer and was called "a defining moment in techno" by Resident Advisor. The newer Bodytonic mix is more jacking techno and I added the I Love Techno Mix from Belgium for the sake of comparison.

Finally, we got word that Shed had a good time at his US debut in Boston, and so Dettmann is being booked in Boston early next year. Look forward to THAT, why doncha ;)
