Marcel Dettmann has mixed the latest edition of the highly respected DJ-Kicks compilation series.

Marcel Dettmann is a Berlin icon who can claim as much responsibility as anyone for the state of modern techno. He has worked closely with many of the genre’s gatekeepers and torch bearers, including Berghain, Ostgut Ton, and Hard Wax.
