I first heard of Hamburg-based producer H.O.S.H. (a.k.a. Holger Behn)
through a mind-blowing 2008 release called "Radar" -- a collaboration
with esteemed producer and Diynamic labelmate Stimming. This insidious
little banger blends delectably nuanced and understated tribal rhythms
with weird distended pitch crescendos and a smiting climatic jazz organ
breakdown unlike anything else I've heard in techno before.
idiosyncratic signature sound embracing elements of minimal tech, dub and
world music, H.O.S.H. has emerged into 2010 as one of the most original artists
of the German EDM scene, while contributing to the
increasing renown of the Diynamic Music collective. H.O.S.H. will be
bringing his innovative dance grooves to the Electric Pickle on
Friday night, where he'll be joined on decks by DJ Andres Amadeus,
plus Will Renuart, Tomas of Aquabooty, Edwin Adams and Terrance Tabeau.
H.O.S.H. at Electric Pickle, Friday, January 8, 11 p.m.-5 a.m. 2826 N Miami Ave., Miami.
