Music Worth Hearing


Breaque – Hausaufgabe 46



After digging through the old and dusty bits for a few episodes, it’s about time to get a bite of fresh produce again. And in a stunning display of straying off proven formulas, instead of 12 stellar tracks I’m bringing you.. 13 of them! Wild, huh? You can never tell what kind of wacky antics will ensue in this downright anarchistic podcast.

But I digress. Hope you’ll dig the music, which contains e.g. another quality outing from Oulu’s own Smok, dramatic disco flavours by Christian Prommer as well as Hard Ton indulging in retro jacking. All house, all good.

Disclaimer: 100% razor sharp mixing not guaranteed, as this was just a laid back unplanned spinning session on the spur of the moment. But with fine sounds like these, who cares? Pleasant listening!

Stand back and watch your step, as you’ve stumbled upon a massive excavation.. for tracks, in my Friedrichshain man cave. The sporadic release schedule of past months has resulted in a metric ton of unplayed house goodness in my backlog.

The lines of communication were cut for quite some time, but at last I can report from behind the lines that the mission of infiltrating into Berlin was a success. Hausaufgabe is back where it kicked off for the 20 first episodes. Different kiez, same beats. Here we go with excellent house music for 2014! As always, I hope you’ll enjoy the ride.

The meaning of life is.. Hausaufgabe 42? Perhaps not, but isn’t it nice to ring in the new year with house music hot enough to prematurely light up your fireworks? Heavy 909 use and early 90s UK hardcore references seem to be in right now, and I’m not complaining. I barely made it to release this on the side of 2013, but what can I say: moving abroad can keep one busy. That’s right, in a week from now it’s time for us to return to Berlin where this podcast got its start. Oulu will be missed but whatever the place, the music won’t stop.

Enjoy the tunes, have a fun new year’s eve and check back in 2014! Plenty of homework still ahead..

What’s this, Sunday homework? Obligations in the boring “real life” side of things have lately wreaked havoc on my podcasting schedule. For the next few months I’ll most likely be releasing new Hausaufgabe episodes quite randomly, but rest assured, I’ll be back to house you when you least expect it. To make up for this, here’s an extra long 82 minute installment with all flavours of stomping goodness. Maximum taste, zero remixes.

This week I’ve mostly been recovering from an extended Berlin clubbing weekend with Teemu “I’m not doing Roskooppi anymore” P, and a bout of flu on top of that. Are these hardships enough to keep me from mixing together the 40th hour of housy goodness for dR? Aww hell naw! The world of Hausaufgabe is once again full of wonder, from Kink remixing Jimpster to Joel Alter putting a bangin’ donk on it. Don’t take my word for it, take a listen and hear it all yourself.

01. Art of Tones – The Great Sgatmi [Local Talk]
02. Kyodai feat. Stee Downes – Music Rises Up (Simon Garcia the Real Health Dub) [Exploited]

Here is the last episode of Hausaufgabe ever.. before the next one! Gotcha. It’s grand alright, but it sure ain’t a finale. As long as tracks as fine as these 12 specimens keep getting released, there is mixing to be done and I’ll be here to do it.

In my hood we’re in full blown autumn mode already, and I believe that is audible in this set of sweet & sour tunes as well. Be sure to especially check out the two excellent remixes from Kyodai and HNNY, both proving they’re more than one hit wonders after their recent breakthroughs on the Swedish label Local Talk.

01. Chmara Winter – Kings of Zenon (HNNY Remix) [Pets]
02. Tone of Arc – White Spy [No.19 Music]
03. Matches – Two Strangers (Jamie Funk Remix) [Something Different]

So many grand tunes, precious few excuses not to record yet another episode of Hausaufgabe for your listening pleasure. It couldn’t be helped: the state of recent releases has again forced my sticky fingers on those turntables. Traps come and EDMs go, most likely by taking the night bus, but house music prevails.

Nobody expects a Finnish inquisition? They might as well, as this is hardly the first one for the podcast. In today’s domestic affairs, Roberto Rodriguez provides a bumping treatment of the #1 summer hit of 2012, Arttu puts his machines to good use on the notorious Snuff Crew’s label, and Sasse utterly destroys the 303-toting competition with his acid monster. But despite my praise for those fellow finns, the armada of foreign folk on the roster are likewise a force to be reckoned with.

01. Keinzweiter – A Never Ending Story [Mussen Project]
02. Project 01 – P01_01 [NSYDE]
03. Jazzuelle – Foot in the Groove [Cityscope]
04. Dragos Ungureanu – Last 29 [Souled Black]

303 basslines, vocoders and breakbeats, oh my! House music knows few limits, sonically or geographically. From Oulu to Berlin, from Florida to Bulgaria, Hausaufgabe once again scours the earth for the best of the best.

With his fine new EP on Phat Elephant, Smok keeps things happening here in the house city of Oulu. Back in my previous hometown, our fellow countrymen Freestyle Man and Sasse attempt to induce a last minute summer of love ’13 with pure unadulterated acid. As if that wasn’t old school enough, Kink and Rachel Row rave on by giving Mr. Watson a full-on ’92 UK hardcore treatment. Q-Burns and Dudley S also deviate a little from the usual four-on-the-floor beats while remaining housey. I don’t even know what’s going on with that massive Pezzner remix.

As always, I hope you’ll have a fun ride. Meanwhile, I’ll be up to my elbows digging up the finest buried treasures for the next one.

01. Rhythm Plate feat. Clyde – Bring It on Back (Q-Burns Abstract Message Remix) [Lost My Dog]
02. Dudley Strangeways – Fisher’s Price [Black Key]
03. Francis Inferno Orchestra – Amber Express [Drumpoet Community]

Attention kids, summer school is in session. Your vacation from Hausaufgabe was not a permanent one, as there are still many lessons to be taught on the subject of house music. Our third academic year starts with 12 fun and easy assignments.

The material in today’s lecture ranges from deep theories to practical dancefloor applications. With esteemed authors like Move D and Chateau Flight, we are definitely dealing with the state of the art. Prior experiences are studied in means of retro sounds by guest professors Steve and Id, while Mr. Hollyoaks brings up a topical issue: surely many of us have also asked “Detroit, what?” after witnessing certain recent news…

Hope to see you in class for the rest of the semester as well. The homework will be plentiful.

01. Zoo Look – The Sound of Someone [Morris Audio]
02. Chateau Flight – La Pregunta (Beau Dub Version) [Permanent Vacation]

It’s nearly June and my mind is already fixated on the upcoming weeks of serious vacationing. Alas, before I take off some equally serious house music business must be taken care of. With this mix in your boombox or related portable audio equipment of choice, you too ought to be all set for the summertime.

Sound-wise the session ranges from the low-key and dubby to the flamboyantly retro, closing up with a hint of early Hausaufgabe flavour for the long term listeners out there (if any). The remix count turned out to be remarkably high, but with names like Actual Proof (aka. Opolopo), Nick Nikolov and Finland’s own Mr. Rasi, you know the versions have been selected with care. In the “coming clean” department, it appears I’ve accidentally bitten a track off a recent Roskooppi from Teemu P. Can you spot it?

Enjoy, and catch you in a next one! A tiny break may occur while I’m AWOL somewhere in Europe, but fear not, I shall return.

01. Copy Paste Soul – Blink [Exploited]
02. Le Rubrique – Damn It (Actual Proof Remix) [Stupid Human Music]
03. Fjaak – Remember Me (Willie Burns Remix) [Klasse]
04. Combinator – Salvation (Asp_Jonas 306 Rämixy) [Absurde]

10. David Glass – I Wanna Know (Phil Weeks Ghetto Mix) [Midnight Music]
11. Tripmastaz – 37th Chamber [I’m a House Gangster]
12. Chanson E – Gitardrive [House Call]

Flirting with disco and techno while staying faithful to house music, that is the way of the 34th Hausaufgabe. While days are getting longer and warmer here in Oulu, the landscape still remains somewhat post-apocalyptic as all that green stuff is yet to surface. The music may just reflect that a bit, as around our parts this is no time for balearic summer anthems.

This month I’m especially pleased to see Frankie J and John Mork being “friends again” and bringing back their old label to boot. This duo was among the producers who made house music fun again in the mid-to-late naughties, getting me back into it as well. Hence you can partially thank (or blame!) them for the existence of this podcast. If those guys fail to rock your boat, check out KDMS working their drums over Iron Curtis or Conan “Liquid People” Liquid laying down a plain silly bassline. Mike Dehnert gets to wrap things up, reminding us why he’s the real deal among legions of cookie-cutter Berghain wannabes.

01. Frankie J – When It Get Hot (Mörk’s Murder Rate Remix) [Spatula City]
02. Conan Liquid feat. SCSI – OK 48k Computer [Infusion]
03. Kolombo – Baby Move Ur Bud [OFF]
04. Martijn – No Way Out [Left Wing]
05. Moomin – I Whisper a Prayer [Smallville]

07. Iron Curtis – Horses (KDMS Drums of Love Remix) [Mirau Musik]
08. Alci – Within [Robsoul]
09. Don Nelson & Mill T – This Delay [A Deeper Groove]
10. Raw District – Breakaway (Pezzner Remix) [Homecoming]
11. Jordan Peak – Hanging by a Thread [Air London]
12. Mike Dehnert – Isolant [Fachwerk]

By the looks of it, producers of excellent house music have finished hibernating for the winter and crawled out of their holes in droves. With just two weeks since the previous Hausaufgabe, my cart’s been filling up so fast this episode practically mixed itself. Sunshine and hot tracks? Can’t complain.

Don’t be fooled by the deceitfully smooth opening remix by the great Sarp Yilmaz, as we’ll soon be setting the course towards straight up no-nonsense housin’. The sounds are served up by old favourites like Joshua Heath and Phil Weeks, well known cats the likes of MCDE and DJ W!ld, and several first timers to keep things fresh. Piano, sax, old school jacking, a bit of acid and the obligatory hip hop sample, got it all covered.

01. Rishi K – Transient Day (Sarp Yilmaz Remix) [Adaptation]
02. Sascha Satoschi – Rated X [Aux Audio]
03. Amine Edge & Dance – Gimme tha Fonky Ass [LouLou]
04. Random Soul feat. Joshua Heath – Time to Funk (Heath’s Milk Was a Bad Choice Dub) [Random Soul]
05. Motor City Drum Ensemble – The Stranger [MCDE]
06. Moodtrap – House Trippin [Tsuba]

09. Fredrik Stjärne – There You Go (Joel Alter Remix) [Bad Animal]
10. Jordan Peak – It’s Time [Air London]

The previous episode of Hausaufgabe was geared towards getting you all hot and bothered. To cool you down a bit and prevent any dangerous overheating, we now have a selection of slightly more chilled out sounds at hand. What’s better, I’m taking a break from following my pedantic 12 track formula and throwing in a little extra. Quantity and quality, together at last.

Highlights include Oulu’s own Smok keeping the House capital of Finland on the map, Cle’s piano house hit, a Move D oldie, plus a nasty remix from my old favourite Busy of RTHM. We begin somewhere near Downtempoville, but where does this ride end up? Lend the mix and ear and hear for yourself.

01. Keely Says – Get Hearted [Stranjjur]
02. Move D – Workshop 13 A1 [Workshop]
03. Youandevan – Disarray [Hypercolour]
04. Maribou State & Pedestrian – Mask [Pets]
05. Hohle – Ser Mi Dama (Martijn Remix) [Deep Edition]
