The techno veteran’s mix is described as a “lost and found story.”
According to !K7 Records, the mix sees the techno veteran taking the opportunity to craft a mix for home listening rather than the club, which shows his “more reflective side.”
Dettmann describes the mix as a “lost and found story” in a press release. “I can draw from 25 years of collecting records, digging deep, revisiting, researching,” he adds.
“When it came to the DJ-Kicks mix, I was sitting for weeks in my music room at home listening to records, sometimes together with the kids, editing, researching, playing games… it turned out as a good combination to be at home with the family whilst working on this music project.
“I was listening to a lot of music which is great, music that I hadn’t listened to for ages and certainly wouldn’t have played in a club set.”
As well as tracks from artists including Sterac, Dan Curtin, Orlando Voorn and even The Residents, the mix features a number of unreleased Dettmann remixes and productions. This release’s DJ-Kicks exclusive is a collaboration between Dettmann and Levon Vincent titled ‘Can You See’.
The most recent DJ-Kicks came from Jackmaster, who spoke to FACT about going back to his techno roots for the mix back in July.
