Boomkat Product Review:
Whetting our whistles for the forthcoming Berghain 02 mix CD extravaganza from Marcel Dettmann, OstGut Ton drop a couple of super prime exclusives from Shed and Tobias Freund. Shed has consistently become one of our favourite neo Detroit producers over the last couple of years with a string of awesome releases for his hardwax affiliated Soloaction imprint alongside killer cuts for Delsin and Styrax, garnering huge levels of praise and plays from any self respecting deeper techno DJs. His 'warped mind' cut here is easily one of his best efforts, teasing out a brilliantly uplifting 313 riff over constantly shifting percussion with an undisputed finesse and style that he's made his own, proper dancing gear. Another Berlin techno superstar, Tobias Freund takes time out from his NSI collab with Max Loderbauer and various other projects to come forth with a rare production under his own name, cementing his upper class minimal credentials with a toned techno shift crafted from bubbling toms and perfectly processed bass heavy rhythms that easily warrant his inclusion on the Berghain 02 mix. Bring on part 2 and the mix!!!
