Marcel Dettmann fabric 77

FABRIC 77 - MARCEL DETTMANNGerman producer and DJ, Marcel Dettmann takes the helm for the 77th part of the fabric mix series.

Growing up in Fürstenwalde in the former German Democratic Republic, Dettmann has been influenced by various music styles since he was a child. His grandmother worked as a music teacher and inspired Marcel and his family to play instruments. In addition the radio at Marcel ́s home was always on if there was already no record playing.

Little by little he discovered the likes of Depeche Mode,The Cure or DAF, then later Detroit techno and Chicago house.As they only had a record player at home he obviously just bought vinyls. His passion led him to start recording mix tapes for himself and his friends, and he also began to organise parties in his hometown. When school and apprenticeships didn’t seem to work out he ran a small record store in the house of his mother. It was with this job that he financed the beginning of his own elaborate record collection.

Dettmann was DJing at the club Ostgut from the late 90s – the forerunner to Berghain. For a decade he’s been a resident DJ of the world renowned club in Berlin. Even though Marcel is involved with several labels such as Ostgut Ton, for the fabric mix he prefered to pick mostly unreleased material from his own imprint, Marcel Dettmann Recordings (MDR).

I mixed it at home with 2 CD players, as most of the tracks are not available on vinyl yet.The mix is mostly based on unreleased MDR demo tracks, which I’ve carried around with me for the last few years. For example the ROD track, I’ve had this one for at least 3 years. Now it is finally a good opportunity to release those tracks and they will all come out on MDR.” – Marcel Dettmann

Recondite Hinterland

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on September 12, 2013 by E.N.

hinterlandA year on from his acclaimed excursions with the 303 for Acid Test, Recondite arrives on Ghostly International for a full-length album of startling maturity. Set for release on November 11th, it shows the artist looking towards his homeland of Lower Bavaria for inspiration, seeking to capture “the area’s mentality and natural environment” within the 10-track LP.

Utilising local field recordings taken during a number of stints in the German region, he depicts the “emotions of the four seasons” and “characteristics of people’s minds” throughout the record, an approach that finds him exploring the celestial angles of a sound that has been developed throughout a recording career still shy of half a decade.

That said the Berlin-based producer has already amassed a covetable discography, with releases on the likes of Hotflush, Dystopian and his own Plangent Records imprint garnering him a formidable reputation amongst the most discerning of music lovers, and seeing his tracks being championed by everyone from Dixon to Marcel Dettmann.
Never one to rest on his laurels, his debut for Ghostly International finds him at his most arresting, exhibiting a refined palette that masterfully adheres to the concept he’s devised for himself. Notably coherent, the harrowing timbres of ‘Floe’, punishing weight of ‘Stems’ and rousing motifs of the Pitchfork premiered ‘Abscondence’ display the full breadth of his imagination, earning himself a distinct place on the established roster whilst chronicling what looks to have been a remarkably personal journey.

Artist: Recondite
Label: Ghostly International

Planetary Assault Systems- Function 4 (Remixes Episode 2 )

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2012 by E.N.

Mote030 is the second remix package to reinterpret Planetary Assault Systems’ seminal record ‘Function 4’. Originally released on the influential Peacefrog label in 2000, Luke Slater now hosts ‘Function 4’ on his Mote-Evolver imprint and invites three of the finest minds in electronic music to tease the original apart and reconfigure it anew: Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted.

Lucy opens the record with a structural re-imagination of ‘Function 4’ where the beats become broken and the layers dense. Amid hisses and snarls Lucy skilfully reweights the elements and splinters the vocal, giving rise to a stunning, hypnotic atmosphere.

Marcel Dettmann, who appeared on the first episode of the remix package, is back with a new agenda. His ‘Base Dub Remix’ revels in swung beats, taking the material and submerging it into a space that is deep and aqueous, with euphoric results.

In Shifted’s hands ‘Function 4’ becomes galvanised. Shifted takes it hard, ratcheting the pace up-a-gear and accelerating into industrial terrain. Persistent and pernicious, this track sounds less like it was made by human hands and more like the product of a complex industrial process.

The record closes with Lucy once again rethinking ‘Function 4’. He mines the twisted beats of the original and moves them into hybrid dub territory. And in spite of the pounding bass line, the track manages to reach out into the realms of ecstatic ambience.

This package sees Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted highlighting the disparate facets of ‘Function 4’. The EP contains industrial, broken beat, dub and ambient elements; a multiplicity of ideas to move not just the body but also to provoke the mind.

Sigha – Abstractions I-IV [HF031](Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2012 by E.N.

Hotflush  presents the return of Sigha with a new EP entitled“Abstractions I-IV”, his sixth on the label. On this release he reaches into darker territory, beginning with a beatless, ambient suspension, drawing the listener in his submerged sonic sphere before dropping into a series of chilling compositions that seem to seethe and smolder at sub-zero temperatures, adorned with haunting electronic blips and synthetic machinations throughout.
