Marcel Dettmann "Shelter"
Released earlier this month on Berlin imprint Ostgut Ton, Fünf (German for "five") celebrates five years of Ostgut Ton as one of the world's premiere techno labels. Not unlike London club Fabric's double-life as a record label, Ostgut Ton is owned by some of the resident DJs of fabled Berlin nightspots Berghain and Panorama Bar. Fünf puts those venues front-and-center with a unique field-recording concept that finds many of the compilation's producers capturing the pedestrian noises of both clubs, either in spirit or in actual live recordings. The album features 26 tracks made exclusively for the release, one of which is Marcel Dettmann's "Shelter," a highly compressed and white-noise-laden slice of techno that chugs along with machine-like efficiency.
