Helena Hauff - Qualm

2LP | 2018 | UK | Original (Ninja Tune)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Helena Hauff cracks through the ice with Qualm, her new album for Ninja Tune. Titled after the German word “Qualm” (kvalm) which translates as fumes or smoke, this murky feeling runs through the album’s intended lo-fi production quality and translates Hauff’s sound as electro with an uneasy feeling of doubt, worry, and fear, especially about one's own conduct.Widely regarded as one of the leading lights within the darkened expanse of modern EBM DJs and producers, Helena Hauff has consistently throughout her DJ sets and records created an entire universe of dystopian electro, acid and post-punk techno. Having already racked up releases and mixes for PAN, Blackest Ever Black, Dark Entries, Bunker, and Werk, by this point in her career it would be easy for Helena Hauff to take a step back when locked in the studio and knock out ten or eleven tracks of crunchy loops and distorted acid b-lines. Yet Hauff does exactly the opposite, submerging herself in twelve tracks of raw electronics, that then emerge above ground to soundtrack your own street-level science fiction.Having spent some proper time with Qualm, we'd say it’s probably the most cohesive and enjoyable record Helena Hauff has put out yet. Treating her productions with the same vigour as her extensive DJ sets, Hauff lays the blueprint for each track with a crushing drum beat that plays on while she searches out new and inventive ways to build up vast blocks of tightly built acidic electro, all put right by her modus operandi of jamming on her collection of machines. In her own words, Qualm is about “trying to create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers”.Hypnotising yet cutting throughout, Qualm is like a nightmarish vision of the day to day ambience of the Kowloon walled city that is created after dark.

Have You Been There, Have You Seen It
12" | 2017 | UK | Original (Ninja Tune)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Die brandneue EP "Have You Been There, Have You Seen It", die nun bei Ninja Tune erscheint, findet eine Helena Hauff in atemberaubender Form vor, die vier geschmeidige, muskulöse und unverhohlen dunkle analoge Exkursionen präsentiert, die sie in ihrem Studio in Hamburg aufgenommen hat. Eine sehr respektierte Produzentin zum einen, besteht andererseits der Kern von Helena Hauffs Persönlichkeit aus ihrer Hingabe und ihrem offenbar angeborenen Talent für das DJ-Handwerk. Gefeiert für ihre Fähigkeiten und ihre einzigartige Auswahl, erlebte sie in den vergangenen zwei Jahren einen kometenhaften Aufstieg, u.a. mit einer BBC Radio 1 Residency, mit ihrem ersten BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix oder mit dem jetzt schon legendären B2B-Set auf dem diesjährigen Sónar mit Ben UFO. Zudem zierte sie u.a. das Cover von Crack Magazine, DJ Mag oder der zweiten Ausgabe des deutschen Bookazines Vinyl Stories.
Helena Hauff - A Tape
Helena Hauff
A Tape
2LP | 2017 | US | Original (Dark Entries)
26,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
We are honored to present ‘A Tape’, a double LP of early work by Helena Hauff, a DJ and record producer based in Hamburg, Germany. At university she studied fine art, physics, and systematic music science. She previously was a resident at Hamburg's Golden Pudel Club, where she hosted a night called Birds and Other Instruments. As a selector she weaves energetically between electro, new wave, and EBM. Her music, often recorded live in one take, has a raw intensity to it. She debuted with an EP on Werkdiscs back in 2013 followed by records for Lux_Rec and Bunker sublabel Panzerkreuz as well as two collaborative EPs for PAN, produced under the name Black Sites with fellow Pudel resident f#x. ‘A Tape’ is a compilation of Helena’s earliest recordings from 2011 and 2014, originally released on limited cassette by Handmade Birds in 2015. Clocking in at over 50 minutes, this collection spans Hauff’s musical universe, from jacking acid-techno to krautish zone-outs and scuzzy feedback interludes. It’s tempting to consider it Helena’s debut album, but she views these tracks as mostly forgotten sketches left on the cutting room floor. It a gripping collection of deep, sinister analog synth sequences, industrial dissonance, and heavy percussion. Her equipment set up was a Roland Alpha Juno 2, Juno 60, TB-303, TR-707 and TR-808. Both of the discs end with Hauff stepping outside of the intentionally stiff, robotic rhythms, instead showing her skill at crafting less conventional electronic sounds. All songs have been mastered by James Plotkin with vinyl EQ and lacquer cut by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is housed in a custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring a checkered graphic and black lines, highlighted by yellow and green for maximum visual tension. Each copy includes a double-sided postcard with notes.
