After Office Recordings 10th release by Iron Curtis and his „Maple EP“ Baaz is back on his own Imprint. Office Recordings 11th release, again, shows a very different side. The Berlin based dj and producer showed his broad musical taste throughout recent releases. Dub techno under his Eric Miller moniker. Sharp house sounds on the latest Idealistmusic. Techno on this very record we are reviewing. The sound ranges from dub techno to ambient and into playful techno. Another side added, another one which is way above average.
For our 48th edition we stumbled across Barbara Boeing from Curitiba, Brasil. The 31 year old regularly plays as a resident at Alter Disco and Discoteca Odara. We really like her style when it comes to music. She treats everything equally, Brazilian music, disco, house, techno or anything in-between. She really has a passion for many different styles. You usual can’t know what she’s playing due to her versatility. But one thing is for certain, she never lets you down. Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 is no exception. Quality disco tracks bring the sunshine and are combined with sample-based house and some minor techno. A very unique mixture, but all those different tracks end up in a very powerful mix. We really hope you guys and girls enjoy her contribution as much as we do, your Ohrenschmaus Podcast!
Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 comes straight from Brazil. Curitiba to be more exact. Barbara Boeing took care of the selection and mix this time and delivers a perfect mixture of house, disco and techno. Lovely sunshine music for the great weather in Nuremberg right now, but also very energetic and dark in certain passages.
After we had some delays the last couple of times, we are now speeding up a little. Three weeks after Marc FM’s extraordinary ambient podcast, we are now back on track. Alessandro Crimi took care of our 47th edition. The „Waehlscheibe“ head honcho is on our list for a really long time. His outrageously good podcasts caught our attention a while ago and now he joins the series, finally. Besides his superb taste in house and techno music he also knows the hip-hop goodies. (Maybe we have to ask for a hip-hop podcast as well?!) Alessandro sent us this nice journey through different styles of contemporary club music, combining modern and classic house sounds. Perfect for these sunny days or your pre-drinking session on the weekend. Make sure to check this spectacular 90 minutes, your Ohrenschmaus Podcast.
After our last podcast by Marc FM who took us on a journey through ambient stuff we now warmly welcome Alessandro Crimi. We know him for quite a while with his fine Waehlscheibe label and of course his great taste in music.
Johannes and Johannes team up again. We are speaking about Johannes Paluka, better known as Iron Curtis and Frank Music head honcho Johannes Albert. The Berlin residents joined forces again to craft their first album as Moon. „Industrie & Zärtlichkeit“ is the final product out of this collaboration and it surely depicts the musical influences both have, but somehow it offers much more. „Industrie & Zärtlichkeit“ is not simply filled with Johannes Albert’s rough and cheesy house sound and it’s not only Iron Curtis‘ melodies and exciting chord progression. It’s more of a journey through different decades, times and styles of electronic music developed so far, merged into their very own sound that somewhat pays tribute to everything from the past and also gives us a vision of what could come next. The vinyl LP consists of nine exciting originals and two remixes. Lerosa and Black Spuma took care of the remixes and twisted the original material into their own understanding of electronic music.
Interview: Tilman – „Creativity comes and goes, sometimes I end up with something great and work on it, or it’s nothing I like and just let it go.“
Tilman from Mainz is a busy person right now. After running his great klamauk label for quite a while already in a successful way he now also takes care of Fine, the label he runs with Johannes Albert. If you know Johannes and Tilman you definitely get why they get along so well and run the label with great effort. Tilman is positive all the way, not just regards his music, but as well as a person. You feel his warmth and his enthusiasm for music and life from the very beginning, even before he says something. Coming from the hip hop background, making his way through house, soul, disco and funk he now is where he is. Displpaying a huge variety of sounds and styles, how he got there and what happened on the way is just one facet we talked about.
Iron Curtis makes his return to Office Recordings from Berlin with his „Maple EP“ marking the 10th release by Baaz’s imprint. After reminiscing on his „The K.M.S. Years EP“, which was the fourth release by Office Recordings, he now shows his more dubby and minimalistic side. After several releases on labels like Morris Audio, Jackoff Records, Boe Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Retreat, Polytone and his album „Soft Wide Waist Band“ on Mirau, he now highlights some dub influences. While we all followed Iron’s progress from beautiful and warm house with focus on chords and strings over to melodic and emotional club music with a more synthetic and modern approach, he secretly crafted some real beauties from the fields of dub techno and ambient, that are now offered to the public as the tenth release on Office.

We open things up with the return of Markus „Mutze“ Mutzenbacher in 2017. The Würzburg based resident of MS Zufriedenheit, Piknik and Kontur offered us a nice trip through ambient, house, techno and break beat. It is so good we had to bring him and his outstanding taste back to Ohrenschmaus Podcast. So here it is 71 minutes of well selected and precisely mixed tracks for the cold January. His great abilities are not just notable in his wonderful mixes, Markus also has the knowledge and understands the craft like no other when it comes to smooth warm ups and danceable closing sets. To put it in a nutshell he is a hell of a dj! Thanks for the second contribution to the series, we are delighted!
Markus „Mutze“ Mutzenbacher:
The second release from Olympos is called „Apollo“ and once again delivers a nice variety of contemporary club tracks from the fields of house and techno. Apollo is the god of light, cure and spring in Greek mythology to bring you the title a bit closer. As usual the artist behind this EP stays unknown for now, nevertheless it’s obvious that whoever it is really has some great sense for crafting sharp and powerful rhythms. After the strong first release the label from Greek keeps up his great effort and shapes his profile once more. Keep reading
The 9th release on Office Recordings not only provides four sexy house tracks by label honcho Baaz, it also comes with a nice cover that was again designed by Super Quiet. Before Office Recordings celebrates its 10th release Baaz once again puts out some fresh music on his very own label from Berlin. Four minimalistic and yet playful tracks made it onto the record with great artwork. Just a very nice record that not just sounds good on your record player, it also looks awesome on your wall.

Baaz once again offers a neat little package on his own Office Recordings Imprint. The „Untitled“ EP is the 8th release on his Berlin based house and techno label. A very enjoyable set of house cuts and ambient works came out at the end of the productional process, again he shows his fine sense for deep house. On top he added some nice ambient vibes and shows his progress when it comes to producing different genres of club music, as you can also hear on his new project which goes by the name Eric Miller with already 2 releases on the sublime Sushitech label where he takes care of dub techno and darker sounds.
