wenn zwei titanen aufeinander treffen, entsteht nicht selten ein geborener klassiker. wie in diesem fall, wenn marcel dettmann, der ende der 90er im berghain-vorgänger ostgut anfing und bis heute diesem signifikanten berliner clubkollektiv treu blieb, der fabric-serie in ihrer 77. ausgabe seinen stempel aufdrückt. wie hören eine ausbalancierte selektion aus purem techno. mit unveröffentlichten tracks seines eigenen mdr labels, raren und ungehörten marcel dettmann remixes und top-protagonisten wie terence fixmer und robert hood. straight wie kaltes, klares wasser. und dennoch werden die lebendigkeit, die würze und die reichweite dieses meisterlichen mixsets viele hörer positiv überraschen.
