Marcel Dettmann readies new Dekmantel compilation

Dekmantel has announced a third volume of its Selectors series, compiled by Berghain-mainstay Marcel Dettmann. The compilation focuses on Dettmann’s ‘pre-techno preferences’, featuring tracks by Front 242, Executive Slacks and Cabaret Voltaire.

Like the previous Selectors editions, the new Dekmantel compilation is not a mix CD, but a collection of tracks hand-picked by Dettmann from his own vinyl archives, remastered and occasionally reworked or re-edited by Dettmann himself, who dives deep into his musical past.

Dettmann: “It was a great opportunity to dig deeper into my own musical outlook. The tracks are from a time before I became a DJ. Music from my childhood that’s still relevant and still inspires me.”

‘Selectors 03’ is out on June 23rd through Dekmantel. Check out the tracklist below.

A1 Front 242 – Don’t Crash
