Ohrenschmaus Podcast #062 – Anaid

Our Podcasts

Our 62nd episode features Anaid. She is a passionate singer, producer and DJ from Bucharest and established herself well in the micro house scene over the last couple of years. She is releasing music since 2013 on labels like Ar.ctic, Defora Records, Micromood_rec, Plusar Recordings, Unfelde Records and Cimelde Records. We came in touch a couple of weeks ago while sharing songs and we asked her if she was kind enough to contribute when she‘s got some spare time. Thankfully she provided a deep and driving mix with a sublime selection of micro tracks and excellent mixing. We are very happy about this percussion-heavy mix that is located in-between micro house and minimal techno since it’s the first of its genre on our platform. She created a mesmerizing balance between energetic drum tracks and fluffy synth based house beauties. This interplay simply levels this podcast in great fashion. Due to this variety, this podcast holds a certain tension throughout and appeals to be a smooth roller coaster ride. Thanks for that, your Ohrenschmaus Podcast!

[Not] Hip Hop Selection #017 by Molinero


The summer slowly comes to an end and we wanted to bring some bright memories back. So we got in touch with Molinero, a fine selector from Nuremberg that has a strong taste in house music, but even more so in the fields of disco, funk, folk and foreign music. So we asked him to do a SLCTN for us and here we are. SLCTN #017 is the first one without any rap or beats in it. Positive vibes all the way and the unofficial title already says it all: Reflections of summer. It combines 16 records from 13 countries. But don’t call it world music. German fusion meets latin jazz from Martinique, Carribean dub and many other genres from the rest of the world. Take your chance and see him playing beautiful tracks at Blok, Nuremberg every now and then or head over to his Soundcloud account linked below. Thanks for this uplifting and positive recording, Marius. This is excellent!

FUEL – Basco [Ashore]


Basco from Ashore is not just a person that shares the enthusiasm for blogging with us. He also is a like-minded person speaking of his musical taste. Besides his love for elegant house and deep techno he also is deeply rooted in hip-hop and rap with all its influences, sample sources and everything else. For Basco golden era beats and modern, more pop related beats are no contradiction. He cherishes both equally and simply integrates a ridiculous amount of different styles and genres into his musical world. This openness and love for music truly follow our ideas and beliefs. You can hear this unique approach in our 16th Hip Hop Selection where he perfectly displayed his skills and talented ear. This list of favourites, however, is pretty much shaped through his brother’s influences. This list consists of selected works Basco was introduced to by his eight years older brother. Nowadays it is the other way around. Sascha forwards new music to his brother and tells him about readworthy literature. Although his brother isn’t an avid reader. What hasn’t changed over the last years is the importance of his brother’s hints and lead. Something we should all be thankful for.


Favourite book: Selim Özdogan – Nirgendwo & Hormone

I think I own almost every book by Selim Özdogan except one or two maybe – even though I don’t like every single one. I really like his early works. They still get me with their simplicity and light-footedness. Just like „Nirgendwo & Hormone“. He writes simply and clearly, but he doesn’t bore the reader. And to be honest, I often used some titles of his short stories for my mixes or used quotes for the inner cover of my mixtapes. „Nirgendwo & Hormone“ is a road movie in a book. You travel through the wasteland, bars and wild nights while love and friendship are put on a test. It’s almost like you could smell, taste and feel the desert while reading. „Nirgendwo & Hormone“ has a steady place in my favourites for eternity, although quite a few think that his debut is even better. (it is exceptional)

Selim Özdogan - Nirgendwo & Hormone

Favourite movie: Absolute Giganten

The amount of Hamburg visits I’ve done is quite negligible: I’ve been there once with my school class and visited St. Pauli, many years after I’ve been at DJ Koze’s apartment for an interview and then I’ve been there in winter one week before the Golem club closed to spin some records and my last trip is just a few weeks behind where I finally experienced the summer in the city for three days. But my fascination for Hamburg was born through „Absolute Giganten“. Way before „Victoria“ (I still didn’t see the movie by now. Damn!) Sebastian Schipper came up with a movie that is heavily quoted til now. I think you already know what I’m talking about, when it’s most beautiful, the record is jumping and so on. Regardless of how this scene and many others turned into a cliché „Absolute Giganten“ in its entity remains as one of the best and most beautiful movies about friendship – and Hamburg

Favourite Album: The Van Pelt – Sultans of Sentiment

Already in third or fourth grade, my brother made tapes with his favourite music for me. They mostly contained so-called emo from 1994 to 1998, besides hardcore. The second emo wave, or however you will call it. I’m talking about bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Jimmy Eat World, The Promise Ring and others. And of course about The Van Pelt. They already were unique back in the days and more so today. Their music is detached from genres, categories and scenes extremely timeless, that’s because of the songs themselves – I love every song on this album -, but also due to Chris Leo’s singing. Which isn’t really singing, it’s almost storytelling. The Sound they’ve created remains unique until this very moment to me, only Reiziger from Belgium and Marr came close to it in some time and some sort. A few months ago both LPs were re-released on vinyl. Lucky me! Because my copy I’ve got from my brother already had some scratches and wasn’t out there for a reasonable price until now. There’s no second album I own so many times on CD or as a vinyl record.

Base Pilot - Life Is Rhythm EP - Neighbour Recordings

Review: Base Pilot – Life Is Rhythm EP – Neighbour Recordings


Base Pilot is a newly found collaborative project by Quantec and Birke TM. They not just share the passion for music, but also a long-lasting friendship and finally combined these two things. With their Life Is Rhythm EP on their own Neighbour Recordings imprint both start into a new chapter. Quantec should be a name for most of us, due to his almost endless stream of quality dub techno releases on labels like Echocord, Styrax, Silent Season and more. Birke TM also is a true music aficionado and produces beats for many years. A superb EP on London’s very own Feelharmonic Records marked his debut. Under Base Pilot, they join forces and craft everything they like. From deep house cuts to stomping dub techno. Everything is possible. With their first release as partners, they deliver a smooth package of four original tracks from the before mentioned fields of club music. This mixture of dub, house and hip-hop clearly unifies the influences of both artists and leads to a unique EP that is not missing any remix. Keep reading


FUEL – Jannick Baal


Jannick Baal is a local DJ from the Nuremberg area. As a friend of the team and a person with strong beliefs, it was clear that we had to feature him. Sound-wise he might be located in a more modern part of club music. His sound reflects his spirituality and love for clean productions. His sets transport a decent energy and steadily offer a flow that makes it easy to follow along and enjoy the night. He displayed those qualities in and around Nuremberg in locations like Haus 33, E-Werk and more.


Favourite book: Hermann Hesse – Siddhartha

The book that impressed me the most is Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. It takes care of beauty, focus and some sort of disciplined freedom in a unique way. All of this is required to understand the concept of integrity and get a closer look.

Hermann Hesse – Siddhartha

Favourite movie or series: Too many

I really love tons of movies and series. I really care about the concept of it and the development throughout the series or the movie. The concept needs to feature exceptional characters and a storyline that is exciting. There’s nothing worse than an ending that is predictable.

Favourite track, mix or album: Too many

There’s no certain mix, album or track that I can place in the limelight so to speak. I could start a list about music that I really love and would never come to an end. To be totally honest I’m fascinated by the future and its endless possibilities. Technology is evolving so fast and always brings up new capabilities. Thanks to this evolution there are so many ways to sample, generate or reproduce sounds and create new ones. All of this can be interpreted, combined and added in several ways. It’s just an endless playground.

Hip Hop Selection #016 by Basco


Sascha Uhlig aka Basco from ashore is a music aficionado we follow for a long time. His musical taste is close to ours regardless of the genre. For this reason, it was clear that we need him to join our roster. Since his love for and taste in hip-hop satisfies us, whether it is classic rap or more modern and pop orientated stuff. He was the number one pick for our SLCTN series. With his mix for episode 16 the Hip Hop Selection series is back after a 2-year long break. After a year now it finally worked out for both sides and it was really worth the wait. His podcast simply reflects and depicts what we’ve hoped for. German underground rap, experimental beats and US heavyweights from the past and present. The ashore member mixed artists like DJ Sotofett with Ghostface Killah, Pusha T, Eloquent and more with ease.

WASI is a person we regularly exchange tracks, opinions and ideas with. Always offering a nice outside view and an honest opinion helps us to grow. WASI’s love for house music in all its facets is a thing we deeply share and also proper techno is a thing we click with. As one of the founders of Würzburg’s infamous PIKNIK parties and open airs he clearly left his mark. In the beginning, he played live sets with his own tracks that are as diverse as his musical taste. Nowadays he still produces music but replaced his controller with turntables and usually DJs at his gigs. Always combining deep and minimalistic tracks with disco, synth loaded weapons and some techno if needed. Above all, this guy simply never lets you down. Music-wise and as a friend. The best thing might be his extreme interest in pop culture. Due to his love for it, he connects exciting influences in a positive manner. As a result, he comes up with unique sketches and ideas. So, be prepared for his short answers for our next edition of FUEL.

Favourite book: Ernest Cline – Ready Player One

It is a great homage to all the stuff that had a strong influence on myself while growing up in the 80s and 90s, which boils down to skating, music and computer games basically. Some call it the holy grail of pop culture. That resonates really well with my perception, but beyond that, it also perfectly sketches out how we will interact with technology in a not too distant future. In case you have not watched the movie yet, read the book first as it is such a different experience!

Ernest Cline – Ready Player One

Favourite movie: Dumb and Dumber

I am totally into road movies and Jim Carrey as an actor. This is probably the one I have watched more than 50 times. Some may call it a ridiculous b-movie, but there is also a deeper narrative to it if you watch it more than one time.

Favourite track: Francois K – Road of Life

This track has influenced me in many ways. It was an often played track in 2008 at a time when I seriously got into clubbing as a dancer at the Monopark parties during my time in Muenster. Later in 2010, I found a 2nd hand record of this track at Amoeba Music in San Francisco. I simply kept this as a souvenir even though I was not a DJ at that time. Today you can still catch me playing this record. To some extent, it reflects my personal „road of life“ which is straightforward.

FUEL Yannick Dixken

FUEL – Yannick Dixken [Native Instruments]


Longtime friend Yannick Dixken answered our 3 questions for another edition of FUEL. He’s known for his straight and clean techno sound. Not just as a DJ, but also as a producer. For many years he hosted some club nights in his hometown Erlangen and was a vital part of the scene in Franconia. By now he’s residing in Berlin and working for Native Instruments. That’s a perfect fit since he really loves to get lost with his synths. To be more precise he’s some kind of a tech nerd. Of course, we mean that in a positive way. Steadily working on his craft and DJ sets he’s constantly displaying progress and also finds his place in the capital city.

Favourite book, comic or manga: None

None. I never liked stuff printed on dead trees that much and I’m reading a lot throughout the day as I’m working as a System Engineer at Native Instruments here in Berlin. So my eyes need some rest in the evening.

Favourite movie: Oh Boy

Tom Schilling is a great actor and struggling through a coffeeless day can be horror!

Johannes Albert - Plus 1 - Frank Music Header

Review: Johannes Albert – Plus 1 – Frank Music


Frank Music celebrates its 25th release. Johannes Albert’s music imprint utilizes the summer break to release a nice mini sampler so to say. Plus 1 focuses on collaborative works. For this release, Johannes Albert produced some fine house with artists like Mr. Fonk and D.Y.A. The main track Turbo Basmati once again delivers one of the best track titles to date and also got remixed by his good friend and house stable Iron Curtis. The common theme of the release is fluffy and uplifting house with lots of pianos to match the summer vibes. It’s not just hot outside, it’s also hot music that can be found on release number 25 from the Franconian label. Keep reading


FUEL – Der Klient [Deep Afterhour]


Our dear friend Der Klient is mostly known for his superb podcast Deep Afterhour. Based in Rostock he gives a nice platform to known and unknown DJs. As a DJ and podcaster, he focuses on music he really enjoys. Mostly dub techno, deep house, minimal techno and everything related with enough groove and drive. With more than 300 episodes his podcast might be one of the most influential podcast for us and it inspired us to do shows with the same quality. If you don’t know his stuff just check him out, we will link everything below. But for now, enjoy his answers about literature, moving image and music. It’s another episode of FUEL.

Favourite manga: Dragonball

In my youth, I was very interested and fascinated by the Dragonball manga. It was so easy to read, it was extremely exciting and pretty funny as well. Also, they had a cliffhanger at the end of each episode or book and you simply had to get the next one.

Favourite documentary: Feiern

The documentary Feiern really inspired me. I watched it 4-5 times I guess. It just motivated me to create something new so many times and it just worked out perfectly most of the time and it still does.
