Review

H.O.S.H, aka Holger Behn, is something of a legend in the German house scene. An exceptional DJ, prolific producer and crucial part of Hamburg’s hugely influential Diynamic crew, H.O.S.H. has helped shape the contemporary house landscape like few others. ‘Ego’, his latest 12“ release on Poker Flat Recordings, demonstrates his absolute mastery of the dancefloor, a result of his vast experience behind the decks. ‘Don Arp’ kicks off this 12″ – a mid-tempo banger that works as perfectly early-on in a set as it would at a peak-time strobe-n-smoke moment. The vibe is pure heads down funk - from the irresistible groove to the ecstatic cut up vocals – but it’s the filthy, Funktion One-troubling bassline that fully detonates this basement bomb. Don Arp is going to tear up all sorts of dancefloors for a long time to come. The dub version of ‘Don Arp’ puts a new slant on the same growling groove, dispensing most of the vocals and letting the synths bubble and the clattering hats and snares dominate. Sharing the B side with the dub, comes ‘Facebook’. Way more fun than the social network, H.O.S.H drops another heavy-grooving bodymover. Clocking in at 114bpm, the track hints at that slightly deranged part of the night – a pitched down vocal, a neurotic melody and enough grit and attitude to rock any flagging feet. Poker Flat’s incredible run of recent releases goes on. Tracklist: A : Don Arp B1: Don Arp (Dub) B2: Facebook
