Marcel Dettmann's MDR label has revealed plans to issue an eight-track compilation next month featuring new tracks from a number of artists the seasoned German producer/DJ keeps in his inner circle. Amongst those who are set to contribute to the simply titled MDR Compilation are NYC-based selector and recent XLR8R podcast contributor Anthony Parasole, Ostgut Ton affiliate Answer Code Request, and longtime Berghain resident Norman Nodge.
"What all of these producers have in common is not just a techno sound that challenges the genre's norms," a press release states, "but an artistic affinity and genuine friendship with the man whose initials appear on the record sleeve." Set to drop both as a double-vinyl pack and in digital form, the MDR Compilation will see its official release on March 20.
Coinciding with the record's arrival, Dettmann and a number of his cohorts will take their talents around the globe, stopping in Berlin, London, Paris, and NYC, amongst other locations. The full MDR tour schedule can be peeped below, where the artwork and complete tracklist for the label's forthcoming compilation can also be found.
