The Bunker presents Marcel Dettmann, Tama Sumo, Spinoza, and Eric Cloutier at Public Assembly 70 North 6th Street 21+, 10p-6a
In 2010, we launched the Berghain and Panorama Bar residency at The Bunker, and tonight we present our sixth edition. For anyone who's been living under a rock for the past five years, Berlin's Berghain and Panorama Bar have established themselves as two of the world's greatest clubs (under one roof, no less). Known for having some of the best resident DJs in the world, an impeccable curation of guests, top-notch sound systems, and weekend-long debaucherous parties, they get everything right and throw what are arguably some the best parties in the world. For the sixth edition of this residency we are pleased to present the return of The Bunker crowd fave Marcel Dettmann alongside Tama Sumo, and The Bunker residents Spinoza and Eric Cloutier.
You can't really talk about what happened in techno in the past few years without mentioning Marcel Dettmann. His sound is deep, raw, uncompromising techno, with heavy nods to both the classic originators of the genre (Carl Craig, Juan Atkins, Basic Channel) and newer producers on the cutting edge of today's sound (T++, Sandwell District, Shed, Luke Hess). This sound is very well presented by Dettmann on his "Berghain 02" mix CD, which was named Compilation of the Year by Resident Advisor in 2008. Dettmann's real claim to fame is his residency at what many consider to be not only the best club in Berlin, but also the very best club in the world, Berghain. Dettmann's regular appearances in the debaucherous downstairs Berghain space (known for it's thundering sound system, dark corners and no-camera policy) have cemented his reputation as one of the best techno DJ's in the world. In the past few years, Marcel has also really come into his own as a producer, with amazing tracks on Berghain's Ostgut Ton (including his debut album last year), as well has his own label, MDR. Dettmann's previous four sets at The Bunker have rocked the club to it's foundation, with many special moments, and he has named The Bunker one of his top 5 party spots in the world.
Heart, emotion and passion instead of pure functionality ï these are Tama Sumoms dj characteristics in a nutshell. She started out in 1993 at the Drama bar in Berlin, one of the first bars to ever feature its own dj at the weekend and an important hang out for the scene before going to the clubs. The Drama was one of the few locations playing house music, when techno was dominating all the other clubs and bars in Berlin at that time. Tama Sumo used to play a lot of New York style vocal house and quickly became a regular DJ behind the decks at the gay saturdays at Caf Moskau. In the beginning of 1994 she started playing regulariy at the legendary Globus/Tresor and became a resident DJ there. Here she began to integrate different electronic-music-genres into her house sets, a mixtureshe constantly improved over the years. Since 2001 Tama Sumo played regularly at the "Dance With The Aliens" party at the old OstGut, the predecessor of Berghain, which eventually opened the door to a residency at the new Panoramabar. In the meantime, she developed a varied style ranging from House in all its colours, combined with reduced Techno, old Electro, Disco and Pop. Altogether her sets feature a lot of bass, sometimes melody, always deep, sexy, dirty, jacking, rough and funky.
