Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin's techno figurehead launches his highly anticipated debut album for Ostgut Ton. Ever since his deadly MDR001 release, Marcel Dettmann has become a name to keep a close eye on within techno/house circles and beyond. We remember hearing that early transmission during a deluge of classic dubstep tracks and tepid techno minimalism in 2006 and were simply astounded at how much his music stood out from the crowd. His sound concentrates the physicality and dark drive of Industrial/EBM techno or efficient Dubstep into sleek arrangements reminding of Rob Hood or the grey scapes and shapes of Sleeparchive, a typically dry and functional style that's cast a shadow of influence over large parts of the techno community. 'Dettmann' is his note from the edge of the current dancefloor, a dryly observed comment of drowning techno, strafing dub-tech and slowly oxidised atmospheric tones that's about as thrilling as an asphyxiwank in the darkrooms. His set unfurls at a well judged clip, from expansive beatless intro and the garage techno subduction of 'Argon' we're plunged into Vainio-esque bleepism on 'Screen' and steered through frozen jackers like 'Drawing', the Basic Channel-debted sub-throb of 'Reticle' and the folded flex of 'Irritant'. As the sweat begins to dry in the closing stages the relentlessly push of 'Silex' starts to smirk at your under-exercised cardiovascular system, while the sit-down and space-out moment of 'Home' signals that you should be heading off before 'Viscous' demands that you stick around for one more, kicking out salted bass vibes and monotone melodics to keep you pounding the same spot you've been on for the last 12 hours. If that sounds like your idea of fun, this is a must.
