Since 2007, Berlin native Mike Dehnert has co-run raw techno label Fachwerk. The imprint's mission is simple: to release their own take on raw, floor techno. And so they have done, on 15 different occasions, earning both the label and the artists behind it the respect of in-the-know, serious techno fans the world over.
Dehnert’s own productions (often informed by his grubby, dub infused and textured live and dj techno sets at institutions like Berghain and Tresor) have also been unleashed on the world via other respected imprints including Clone Basement Series, Echochord Colour and Deeply Rooted House.
The culminations of Dehnert's musical experiences so far are laid out for all to see on his unashamedly dancefloor first artist album, Framework on Delsin Records. It is a self proclaimed ''collection of tracks'' on long running and high quality label, Delsin, and continues in Dehnert’s traditional vein of crafting engaging electronic music imbued with a range of moods and emotions.
As you can tell from his dark, dirty techno sound, Mike Dehnert is not interested in making a name for himself, but rather just in expressing himself. As well as continuing to DJ and perform accomplished live sets (both alone and part of a series of Fachwerk nights with friends and fellow label founders, Roman Lindau and Sascha Rydell), Dehnert is touring with Delsin later in 2011 to celebrate the release of his album.
