I.T. Radio: Thomas Fehlmann

A key figure in the dialogue between Berlin and Detroit, the Orb member tells BMG and Erika about his musical passions.

From his own solo work to his studio collaboration with Moritz von Oswald as 3MB, where they recorded with a bunch of Detroit techno heroes – the highlight being “Jazz is the Teacher” with Juan Atkins – not to mention his contributions to Sun Electric and the Orb, Thomas Fehlmann is kind of a musical superhero. He’s in town right now because he’s collaborating in the studio with Terrence Dixon, and they’re performing together this Saturday night at the Tresor party we’re throwing as part of our event series at Tangent Gallery. On the radio show, I’m looking forward to exploring his inspirations and hearing about what excites him in music now.
