Review: O/V/R – Post-Traumatic Son – Marcel Dettmann Mixes

Label: Blueprint
Catalog#: BP030.3


A: Construction 1

B1: Construction 2

B2: MDR Version


After seeing Ben Klock doing his own remix EP for the ‘Post-Traumatic Son’ release by O/V/R, as well as Robert Hood and DVS1 doing the previous one, Marcel Dettmann gets a chance to interpet the track in his own style, spanning over three tracks with different approaches.

For the first mix, the ‘Construction 1’, Dettmann goes into a submerged state where the beat drives the hypnotizing track into a state of total confusion—similar to Dettmann’s previous experiments with beat structure and flow, the energy in this track is something special.

‘Construction 2’, the second of three mixes is closer to the more established sound of his residency, touching a little bit to a more broken sound. For a concept of three remixes, this version stands out as it takes the elements from the first mix but combines them in an excellent way.

Dettmann displays his most tripping side with the ‘MDR Version’, where the stripped sound feels more natural coming from him, as it pursues a more experimental and not so steady sound as for the other mixes.

The vinyl version will be out 28th of March.

Thanks to Marcel Dettmann and Addy for this release.

    Heard Marcel play the MDR mix at the Bunker in NYC this month. Massive. It’s probably my favorite of the three with the second coming in, well, second. Thanks for keeping me up to date on the latest wax! Hope all is well, Noah.

    Hey Noah,

    Do you happen to know if this is a digital only release? It would be a shame if it was not released on vinyl.
