Like fellow Berliners Modeselektor, Housemeister has always kept the early spirit of post-wall Berlin alive. Working off the back of a free-spirited punk attitude, his genre transgressing work draws heavily on techno and electro but as latest single ‘Weird Friends’ (out now on Boysnoize Records) shows, he’s adept at any tempo.
Featuring the vocal talents of US rapper P.O.S, ‘Weird Friends’ throws indie hip-hop together with popping beats and lo-fi bass for a uniquely leftfield party piece. Based on the track ‘Hirschkeule’ from his latest album ‘Music Is Awesome’, Housemeister has kindly given as an exclusive ‘Funky Cold Housi’ remix to download.
The single features remixes from the awesome TWR72, who delivers a techy house version for faster floors, Obi Blanche, who we recently caught rocking East End ravebox Trailer Trash, and Brazilian noise experts Mixhell.
