Berlin-based DJ, producer and label owner Oliver Deutschmann announces his debut album, ‘Out of the Dark‘. Released on Vidab Records on February 24, at Panorama Bar, Berlin, he is now undertaking a world tour to promote the album.

ODeutschmannOliver runs Vidab with label partner Stephan Hill, together curating an impressive catalogue of quality, raw and analog-infused house and techno. He also created the Falkplatz label as a further outlet for his energetic A&R tendencies.

Firmly established in the underground, Deutschmann has stood behind his unique brand of 4/4 beats for more than a decade; a permanent resident at Panorama Bar for over 4 years with his dubby, pulsing house vibes, old school drums, intense peaks and driving modern dramatics.

Developing a strong signature sound, Oliver translates real emotion and atmosphere into his productions, with bold, crisp and powerful drums, resonant, textural synthlines and a stylish talent for keeping things locked down to hypnotizing effect.

Oliver’s album tour will reach Hong Kong on Friday 12 April 2013 at Bassment Bar. Support from DJs Wendy Wenn and Miko Van Chong, as well as visuals by Casey Anderson of Humdrum Hong Kong. Presented by Deeper Sounds HK.

Fur Die Liebe
[All Day I Dream]
A duo who’ve produced some forward-thinking dancefloor material, and the strings on this track get me every time.

Ry Cumin & Frank Wiedermann
Howling (Âme Remix)
[Innervisions]
I don’t usually go for big vocal tracks, but there’s something quite stirring about this guy’s singing – plus the track comes to a pretty powerful conclusion.

Barnt
Geffen
[Cómeme]
It was always fun watching the crowd when dropping this weird little number. Geffen is really nothing more than a beat and a fun little octave-driven synth line, but it drove people crazy every single time.

Maetrik
The Poem
[Ellum Audio]
I still prefer the stuff Eric Estornel produces as Maetrik over his Maceo Plex guise, and this track really sums up why: rib-shaking beats and simple but devastating basslines. Massive.

Ian Pooley
CompuRhythm (Dixon 4/4 Treatment)
[Innervisions]
Have such good memories of catching Dixon at Barcelona in Sonar this year, and he’s fast become one of my favourites. This is his best remix yet, maybe after the 2011 Singing rerubs.

HUMDRUM HONG KONG – Underground House and Techno

INTERVIEW WITH HONG KONG’S FINEST DEEP HOUSE COLLECTIVE

 

TDJL: What is Humdrum Hongkong all about? How did you start? Who are the members?

Humdrum Hongkong started in August 2011 after realizing the three of us shared a love of deep house. We are OCEAN LAM (HK), CASEY ANDERSON (USA) and MIKO VAN CHONG (HK). In Hong Kong’s house and techno spectrum, our music is probably on the deepest and most dubby side, with the lowest BPMs and lots of room for weird tracks – but always fun!

 

TDJL: What parties have you done?

We do a monthly party called LOCO at this bar called Bassment. Most of the Hong Kong DJs that play dance music have always played really dark, intense tech house – we support those DJs too, but the Humdrum group came together over house music that’s subtler, deeper, more melodic – we play dark tracks too but we balance it out with pretty songs here and there. Until we started doing our monthlyLOCO night there weren’t many options for that kind of house. Luckily several other organizers started their own parties around the same time – people finally have a few options for house and techno in Hong Kong.

We hear from plenty of Europeans that our music and parties have more in common with little bars in Germany than the glitzy Hong Kong clubs, which has a lot to do with Ocean getting inspiration from touring there a couple times. For example, the room is dark except for a projector showing weird old films on the wall, there’s no bouncer checking out your clothes at the door and entrance to LOCO is free so we can try to bring fresh faces into our scene. We’ve brought DEETRON and I-ROBOTS to Bassment too and have some more international guests on the horizon. And oh, we have SATOSHI FUMI in November.
