Exclusive footage: Marcel Dettmann at Berghain/Panorama Bar, Berlin, Germany

Fri 17.10.2008

It is nearly impossible to get cameras into Berghain/Panorama Bar, as they have a strict no-camera policy, reported DJsounds’ German division. So kudos to the crew for managing to come up with this clip: an interview with Berghain resident DJ Marcel Dettmann and a rare peak inside Berlin’s uber-cool techno club! Stalwart of the Berghain sound, select selector Marcel has been spinning at the venue (formerly known as Ostgut) since 1999. Here he talks about DJing, the Berghain/Panorama Bar combo, and Berghain 02, his debut mix compilation, which was released earlier this year on Ostgut Ton, Berghain’s label arm. Production-wise, Marcel has previously released material on his own Marcel Dettmann Records imprint and remixed for the likes of Rekids, and in this interview he chats openly about his recent production work, including ‘Plain’ on Berlin label Beatstreet.
