Helena Hauff (no website), who Actress asked to play the launch of his album ‘RIP’, is responsible for the ‘Birds And Other Instruments’ night at the Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg, Germany, and a while back she put together a rather sexy deep house mix for the Monday Edition website.
Hauff has also started producing her own tracks, as she told Petra Lundwerk of the WUKO Music blog: “I got a 303, an MPC and I try to save some money for some other gear. It’s big fun to fuck around with some machines and I simply don’t understand computers. That’s pretty much all I do at the moment, hanging out at home and playing out.”
Larry Heard, Moodymann, Mike Huckaby and Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir are among the heavyweights scattered across this mix, plus you get a track from Theo Parrish’s Rotating Assembly collective. Wallflowers will also enjoy the occasional moments of crowd chatter and clinking glasses – turn it up and pretend the party’s kicking off at your place.
