Marcel Dettmann - Berghain 02: Mix CD
Berlin is having a resurgence of cutting-edge labels right now, and this latest offering from Berghain resident/Hard Wax man is top drawer. He’s a quality act, both as a DJ and as the man responsible for the MDR label. This latest mix blends new-school cuts from the likes of Samuli Kemppi and Radioslave, an exclusive from T++ and classic tracks from Planetary Assault Systems and Kevin Saunderson. What’s important here is Dettmann’s unflashy approach. The album is mixed in a simple, purist fashion that enhances what this scene is all about: quality organic techno music.
