Dettmann is one of the definitive figures of contemporary German Techno. One of the most iconic performers to grapple with the current standing of Techno music, one needs to review all of the experiences that have placed Dettmann in this position as the spokesperson for the German dance scene. From his first experiences as a record seller in the former East Germany of the late 1990s, to being the go-to representative of Berlin’s legendary Hard Wax record shop, he was also resident DJ at the famed club, Berghain. Dettmann has been there at every key moment in the history of German Techno.
Crude, hard, and with no sense of the taboo, Dettmann’s mystique is still always shrouded. A living force of the vertical, direct, brutal aesthetic that’s proved transcendent around the world, he’s been chosen to remix Moderat, Junior Boys, Fever Ray, Ellen Allien, Clark and even the emblematic Laibach in the era after industrial music. His mixes for labels like Fabric, Music Man, and Berghain, are proof of the versatility that always arrives and crushes, upward, with an authentic aesthetic that’s timeless and guided by a practical intuition flowing ever forward.
