8/10 Ant Staff review, 13 September 2013

As the title indicates this is the second album from one of the Resident DJ's at Berlin techno mecca Berghain, on their in house label Ostgut Ton. I think in a lot of ways his productions mirror his tastes as a DJ and are mainly functional club tools although he does sometimes wander into dark ambient interlude territory.

'II' is a decent follow up but like his first album, entertains me but doesn't quite get "there" in the same way that the techno of some of his predecessors and contemporaries does. That's not to say there isn't plenty to enjoy here with it's steely palette, subtle dub washes, infectious grooves and hypnotic repetition. 'Lightworks' is straight from the Maurizio school but Dettmann takes it into a much creepier zone with whip cracking sounds and a seemingly endless tunnelling groove.

'Radar' certainly has that spaced out Berghain sound recalling Traversable Wormhole. While other tracks have a New York flavour recalling Steve Stoll and Damon Wild. Features contributions from Emika, Levon Vincent and a co-production with René Pawlowitz, closer ''Aim' which is an uplifting oldskool techno flavour to its dreamy groove. Nothing earth shatteringly mind blowing or innovative here but solid stuff nonetheless.
