A month ago, I put down a few mixes by Marcel Dettmann and promised that we'd be having him in Boston soon.

A week ago I named his mix Berghain 02 as the best/most important mix of 2008 in Boston's Weekly Dig.

2008 has been a huge year for Dettmann. His tracks for Ostgut Ton, his own imprint MDR and remixes for artists like Ellen Allien and labels like Rekids are the perfect example of what's being called the Berghain sound: bass-heavy and hard-hitting, but with thoughtful density and layered influences of old-school house.

No club in Boston is like his resident Berghain in Berlin, but on January 8th, Middlesex will host the party and with him at the helm it will be dark, rough and totally packed! The cover is just $5.

    Dettman. Someone needs to pick him up from the airport. Yipes.

    Just out of curiosity, was Dettmann playing Middlesex never really mentioned anywhere? I had no idea he was coming, and am really kicking myself that I missed him and Martyn in one weekend.
