The mix, which will be available for free in late January, was taken from a recording of a recent Berghain set, and features tracks from the likes of Dopplereffekt, Steffi and Hodge.
Fiedel's contribution to the series comes from a recording of a set he played last month at Berghain, where he's a longtime resident, and he says he used a separate microphone to "capture the atmosphere in the space." According to the label, the mix highlights an "off-kilter and bass-heavy techno sensibility" across its 140-minute runtime. While a full tracklist is still TBA, we're told it includes material from artists like Dopplereffekt, DJ Hell, Steffi, Substance, Hodge, Fiedel's MMM collaborator Errorsmith and Noncompliant, along with four exclusives—from Electric Indigo, Stefan Rein and rRoxymore, and a partnership between Fiedel and fellow Berghain resident Boris—that'll feature on an accompanying 12-inch sampler.
Both the mix, which is free, and the record are due out on January 26th.
Berghain 08 follows Fiedel's debut solo release on Ostgut Ton, the Substance B 12-inch, from earlier this year. Function handled the mix series' last installment back in 2015.
