Techno Music Melbourne

BAD MANNERS 3 offers two club-enabled reworks of classic Marcel Dettmann material by legends Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir and Morphosis. Both remixes have been previously unreleased and date back many years. Recently resurfaced, the approach of each of the two techno innovators shows how music can survive time: sounding fresh and still way ahead of the curve.

The 12″ starts with motor city’s very own Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir. Knowing each other since the late 1990s and having shared decks many times, this Detroit-Berlin axis is manifested with the pioneering producer and DJ’s remix of “Eruq”. Here, Shake offers a both playful and fierce take on Dettmann’s unreleased original, turning it in a multi-layered gem of his that’s guaranteed to turn heads in sets.

“Works” on B features a deep, groovy 10-minute percussion and synth modulation study by interdisciplinary artist and Berlin-based producer Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis – now rhythmically compelling, then further expanding and stylistically free-floating.

BAD MANNERS is the new platform and label by DJ and musician Marcel Dettmann, offering artists close to him an undefined space for expression while encouraging unpredictability in format and sound.

The label is celebrating a first 20-hour showcase on October 18th at Amsterdam’s Shelter during ADE with the likes of DJ Stingray, Discwoman’s Umfang, Miss Kittin, live sets by Luke Slater as Planetary Assault Systems and Vril, BM’s first affiliated Exterminador and Dettmann himself, to name a few.
