Ohrenschmaus Podcast #066 – Wiska

Our Podcasts

Spring is here and we continue our uplifting output with Ohrenschmaus Podcast #066 by Wiska from Curitiba, Brazil. Those bright and warm days have been a real treat to our spiritual and physical well-being. The soundtrack for those days definitely came from Wiska aka William Machado who got in touch with us back in 2018 when cloudy skies dominated and turned everything into a grey and sad veneer. Since his mix was so positive and energetic we decided to delay it into a brighter future. So here we are now showcasing this absolute beauty of a house mix. Warm and jazzy vibes lay a calm foundation which evolves during the set with some help of agile vocals and disco burners. This one really is a movie and we want to watch it a couple of times. We hope you do, too. Thanks, William for this superb podcast. Xoxo, Ohrenschmaus Podcast!

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #065 – Pastel Autumn

Our Podcasts

After enjoying the last summery and bright days of February we somehow lost the focus with our podcast series. Due to this our 65th instalment comes in a bit late. But, the delay is definitely worth it. The latest addition to our series comes from Pastel Autumn from Sydney, Australia. We first noticed him when he mixed Smile for a While’s thirtieth episode. Soon after that, he contacted us and it was clear that we wanted to save him a spot. Although it took us quite a while. However, now everything is put in place and his excellent selection is up and running. With a sensitive arrangement that makes its way through some deep house tunes, dub techno gems and tribal house all the way to classic and soulful house music it’s just a beautiful trip. Combined with his silky soft mixing this one is a flawless display of house music in all colours. Please enjoy his work and give him a follow!

Interview: Mr. Fonk – „Well, I wanna be a mentor, that’s for sure.“

DJsInterviewsProducer

Mr Fonk is a true DJ and very enthusiastic about it. You not only experience it through his well-selected mixes and gigs. Also talking to him and his love for certain tracks, eras and labels clearly transports his love. Living in Franconia as a kid, he made some of his first steps in the area around Nuremberg when it comes to clubbing. After living in Frankfurt and now Berlin for a time he experienced many different club cultures. All of them, but more so the people made an impact on him and his label S4AW. Smile for a while is not just a name it’s a mindset. What he wants to do with his label as well as his beliefs are just some of the topics we went through during our conversation. Keep reading

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.

Favourite album: Massive Töne – Kopfnicker

It’s a rap album that heavily influenced me and still does. There’s not much to say about it. Just great beats and rhymes from Stuttgart.

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!
