MAR­CEL DETTMANN

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

Techno fans will know Mar­cel Dettmann as one of the Berghain king­pins, a DJ and pro­ducer who has seen his res­i­dency at the Ber­lin club turn him into one of the big­gest names in techno. How­ever, those ex­pect­ing the boom and thump of prime­time techno may be wait­ing some time. For Dettmann, this was about gath­er­ing more re­flec­tive set of tracks he hadn’t played in a while, and which he would not nor­mally fea­ture in a club set­ting. This doesn’t mean wall-to-wall Chris de Burgh or Cold­play; Dettmann’s home lis­ten­ing pulls in sem­i­nal wonky pop movers The Res­i­dents, long­stand­ing Dutch techno pro­duc­ers the Psy­chick War­riors ov Gaia and pi­o­neer­ing left­field pro­ducer Dan Curtin. Amidst the pre­vi­ously un­re­leased mixes , the pick of this bunch is Can You See, a strongly drilled Dettmann col­lab­o­ra­tion with Levon Vincent. face­book.com/marceldettman­nof­fi­cial JIM CAR­ROLL
