Pressure with Marcel Dettmann

Fri 31 Aug 2012 | 10.30pm-3am | £12

Pressure return to the Arches after a three month summer break to kick off their autumn season with one of Berlin’s foremost purveyors of dark, futuristic techno Marcel Dettmann.

Making rough, raw and reduced techno, Dettmann is an integral part of the Berlin sound, with his sets delicately referencing the genre’s history while keeping close to his future minimalist ideals – as anyone who’s seen him DJ at the infamous Berghain club will testify.

Having released his debut album in 2010 on Berghain’s label Ostgut Ton and remixed artists as diverse as Fever Ray, Junior Boys, Modeselektor and Scuba, Dettmann’s productions and remixes bring together the extremities of quality electronic music. Dettmann also runs his MDR label, releasing records by Norman Nodge, Wincent Kunth and, of course, himself.

Sitting at the top of their game, Slam have released two massive records for Drumcode (Vespula) and their Paragraph label (The RTM Project) in the last month, with two new EPs to follow in August – Campana, which comes out on Len Faki’s Figure label, and their new release on Soma, Old School Jams for the New Republic. Immediately after this night, the duo fly to Berlin to play with Len Faki in Berghain.
