Hauff has come far since releasing her her debut three-track 'Actio Reacto' EP through Werkdiscs two years ago: releases for PAN, Lux Rec, and Panzerkreuz have followed, illustrating her darker, punkier take on hardware-driven electro and techno.
The 10 tracks on 'Discreet Desires' are, to quote the album's press release, "the embodiment of Helena’s deep-seated beliefs about music as a radical force and unifying movement", showing "her enthusiasm for musical subcultures from punk to nu wave, industrial, krautrock and avant garde electro – all of which were rooted in raw experimentation and existed in polar opposition to the perfect, polished mainstream."
You can hear a new track, Sworn To Secrecy Part II, right now.
