Ohrenschmaus Podcast #063 – Fred Buddah

Our Podcasts

Fred Buddah from South Africa is trying to push the South African deep house scene with his own sound. Incorporating mother earth’s sounds and African originals into his own interpretation of deep house and techno. It’s not just ending up in a unique sound it also brings the sound of his surroundings to people all over the world. Exactly this combination is what struck is in 2014 as he released the Mystical Arts EP on Roots Go Deep with Ofuren. Since those days we knew he had to be on our show and finally, he’s here. The founder of Roots Go Deep was immediately down with the idea of featuring him in our podcast series and now closes 2018 in a perfect manner. Earthy deep house spiced with some strong rhythms and energetic pads blast away winter’s grey sadness.

Christmas Candies: Elpierro – Space Travel

Specials
Space Travel by Elpierro

Pierre from Erlangen is not just a stable uploader on Soundcloud we also consider him a close friend. Due to his presence on Soundcloud and in the club scene of Nuremberg almost 10 years ago, we immediately clicked. We always discussed tracks and sent projects back and forth so both sides were able to grow as producers, DJs and first and foremost as humans. While we took back from producing and focused on DJing and our podcast he always kept going. With Space Travel he proves that hard work and just going for it makes a difference. In contrast to his older tracks that already offered a glimpse of what he’s capable of, he now created a true dance floor powerhouse. The agile synth just keeps you locked in the zone with his elegant energy. Together with the strong drum elements and those deep, long strings, it’s just working beautifully. Space Travel by Elpierro cleary is his best work so far. That’s why we are so happy to feature this excellent production in our Christmas Candies series. As always it is free to download on Soundcloud. Thank you, Pierre, we really appreciate your music and friendship!

Christmas Candies

Christmas Candies is our second December series or compilation. Some years ago we had the idea to gather some tracks by friends of Ohrenschmaus Podcast and upload them during the Christmas time as a gift for our listeners and readers. The first series was called Candle Tracks and followed the same rules. Music that is free to download for everyone on Soundcloud with only one thing in common: quality! And that’s where we continue in 2018 with the Christmas Candies series. This compilations sound is located in or somewhere around the house genre and simply wants to display music from our circle of friends. When the series comes to an end we will produce a tape compilation with all of the tracks that will feature a nice design. The tape will be 100% handmade and comes in limited numbers. So if you’re a tape fan or simply want to support us just order yourself a quality tape. It will be sold at a reasonable price that only covers our production costs. But for now, stay tuned for the upcoming pieces of music and enjoy your Christmas gift. One love, Ohrenschmaus Podcast.

Base Pilot - Life Is Rhythm EP - Neighbour Recordings

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

HouseReviewsTechno

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 Wasi

FUEL – WASI [PIKNIK]

FUEL

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.

Johannes Albert - Plus 1 - Frank Music Header

Review: Johannes Albert – Plus 1 – Frank Music

HouseReviews

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]

FUEL

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.

FUEL – Mr. Fonk [Smile for a While]

FUEL

Mr. Fonk not just recorded the latest edition of Ohrenschmaus Podcast, he also answered some questions. As we told him about FUEL and that we wanted to establish a format that is quick to read he immediately was down for it. 3 Questions, 3 Answers and not only about music? Yes, there’s more than music. Especially when it comes to creativity and artistry. It’s important to step back from music and participate in other spaces or simply enjoy other things. Mr. Fonk told us a bit about things he enjoys besides spinning records and managing his label Smile for a While. He told us about his favourite books, yeah he broke the rules and told us about two. He also explains why he had to and it totally makes sense. On top, he also came along with a movie he really likes and a certain track that sticks with him and why he still loves this gem ever since he heard it for the first time. If you already checked out Drei Farben House’s FUEL edition, you might think those two are brothers. It’s more than disco for both, trust me. So here we go.

Favourite books: Mel Cheren – My life and the Paradise Garage & Andrew Holleran – Dancer from the dance

I read those books more or less simultaneously, so that’s why I nominate two. Both have brought me to tears. I had read a ton of books about Disco before, but only those two really made me feel the daily life of clubbers, DJs and other protagonists of the scene. One is a memoir, the other is more or less fictitious. One is post-AIDS, one pre-AIDS. Both suck you in and never let you go until the last page.

Mel Cheren – My life and the Paradise Garage

Andrew Holleran – Dancer from the dance

Favourite Movie: Studio 54

I saw this movie when I was 19 and starting to go clubbing and it played a major role in honing my musical tastes. Back then I felt like being that Shane 54 guy. Coming from the outskirts of Nuremberg, delving into these whole new things: Nightlife and Dance Music. Even though I have enjoyed dance music since around 1989, it was only around 1998 when I could start to go dancing myself. This was a major part of my early soundtrack.

Favourite Track: Ten City – That’s the way love is (Deep House Mix)

I heard this first around 2000 when I was checking tons of House Music CDs at Nuremberg’s only proper record store at the time: Laser Sound. This track has guided me through the ups and downs of love and life and its omnipotent meaning for me has never changed over time. I always liked Vocals in House Music. Vocals that mean something. This never changed either, not during the Techno heydays, not during minimal House or any other short-lived trend. The essence of House will prevail!

FUEL – Drei Farben House [Tenderpark Records]

FUEL

FUEL is a new category here at Ohrenschmaus Podcast. This quick to read format gives you a short but intense behind the scenes look. It’s full of content you might have been interested in for ages. What really touches a DJ or producer besides music? That’s what we are taking care of here. What really inspires or influences those musicians, label owner and radio hosts? How do they stay creative? What matters to them? What left them speechless or had an ongoing impact and why? Here they will answer what print media had an impact, which piece of music or audio touched them and what full-video touched their soul. For the first one, we start with Drei Farben House. Tenderpark’s label head is around for many years and always displays a great sense for uplifting house and disco music. Also, a musician that names himself after a movie perfectly fits our requirements. With his musical background, it is no surprise that he came up with disco related answers.

Favourite book: Hot Stuff – Disco and the remaking of American Culture

My favourite book is Hot Stuff – Disco and the remaking of American Culture by Alice Echols because the author makes clear how much the 1970s Disco revolution is linked to the gay liberation movement, feminism and the black freedom struggle. She shows that without the intervention of these marginalised groups Disco would not have been possible. At the same time, these countercultural actors lay the ground for everything we nowadays consider underground club culture. It all started back then, folks! This fantastic book has been given to me by my premier Disco friend Vina Yun who not only works in the field of feminist journalism but who is also a great Disco DJ herself and a great friend.

Hot Stuff: Disco and the Remaking of American Culture

Most seen movie: The Bodyguard

I’ve seen the kitsch movie The Bodyguard so many times that I’ve lost count of it. I mainly keep watching it because Whitney Houston to me is the greatest vocalist of the last 100 years and I just love to watch and hear her sing in the movie. And of course, the movie soundtrack consists of mainly her power songs. By the way: The soundtrack of The Bodyguard is until today the best selling movie soundtrack of all times! Only Whitney has the power to achieve that!

Favourite mix: Roy Thode live at Paradise Garage, New York 20th of Octobre 1979

I would like to direct you to this fantastic mix from Disco pioneer Roy Thode who played this marvellous set at the historic Paradise Garage in late 1979 – shortly after the so-called Disco backlash. But as you can hear from his set as well as from the performances of countless other DJs at that time Disco was not dead at all. And so did all the club hosts, dancers, promoters and activists think and kept on dancing.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #061 – Mr. Fonk

Our Podcasts

With number 61 in our small series we warmly welcome Mr. Fonk from Berlin. As many others he also has a Franconian background and shares our love for house. He clearly focuses on warm and sample based house as you can hear in his mix. Additionally he’s an expert when it comes to disco music which explains his love for disco infused house. Besides his musical taste he also is a very active person and manages three labels. Those go by the name of Smile For A While, All That Jelly and Edits For The Common Man. Some little background information we first met in May this year when we played at Paloma Bar in Berlin and only said hi to each other because we were kind of busy with so many friends of us that showed up. Afterwards we got in touch and immediately clicked. Since then we are in constant exchange and we came up with some ideas, one of them was a podcast for us. Few weeks later and here we are showcasing almost 2 hours of fine selected and mixed house that founds on house in all its facettes, colors and grooves. You will find some proper deep house, as well as disco influences and energetic, almost technoid stuff in there. It’s a real treat!

Stefanos Skifos – Kiss Klub Afterhour 11.11.17

Podcasts We Love

INTRO

Stefanos Skifos is one of the Die Rakete residents. His sound is minimalistic, but still energetic and diverse. It ranges from house tunes that really dive deep. More minimalistic and Romanian sounds. All the way to energetic, but still deep and melodic techno. This mix was recorded in November 2017 at the Kiss Klub party at Die Rakete. Kiss Klub is one of the longest running parties in town and also one of the best when it comes to deep and driving house or techno. Stefanos filled those 2 hours and 22 minutes with grooving minimal techno which we really enjoyed listening to. Always energetic, always on point and never too hard or banging. We can perfectly imagine how well this sound has fit into to early morning hours after the main booking. The mix is simply perfect for running sessions, cooking or to listen to at work. Excellent job!
