Berghain’s own Marcel Dettmann has mixed the next DJ-Kicks
iK7’s esteemed DJ-Kicks series continues its 2016 hot streak next month with a new mix from Berlin techno heavyweight Marcel Dettmann. The Berghain resident will release his edition of DJ-Kicks on 14 October, and it comes stocked with 19 tracks from his all-killer collection.
Dettmann selected a few of his favourite records from the past three decades for this mix, working them in alongside his own productions, remixes, edits and collaborations with the likes of Levon Vincent and Wincent Kunth. He closes it out with a previously unreleased remix by Detroit don Rolando of Dettmann’s own Let’s Do It.
As the DJ writes on iK7’s website, the mix “comes out of my personal music history, which could be described with the terms Berlin, Berghain and Hard Wax. It’s music that has accompanied me for decades…it is not a mix of brand-new tracks, it’s a mixture of of all the music that shaped me over the years and of all the things that still move me today, aesthetically and acoustically.”
The Berliner’s DJ-Kicks follows editions this year from Moodymann, Dâm-Funk and Jackmaster. Dettmann is no stranger to the commercial mix game, either, having already delivered entries in both Berghain and Fabric London’s compilation series.
