Amsterdam-based DJ/producer Lauhaus has been entrenched in the Dutch techno scene over a decade. Since co-founding and touring the live project Polder in 2004 with David Labeji, he’s been a mainstay on the local party scene. With releases on top-notch labels including Sushitech, Cocoon, Viva, Rejected and Circus Company to his credit, as well as co-running house label Soweso along with Kabale und Liebe since 2009, he recently joined forces with the OFF Recordings crew, often spinning back-to-back sets with label head Andre Crom.
Earlier this month OFF unveiled Lauhaus’ sublime Dyson Sphere EP featuring a remix by Detroit’s Anonym, and it wouldn’t be hyperbole to say it’s one of the summer’s best releases for those who favor dark, brooding techno. We caught up with the one-named phenom and asked him to share five tracks currently rocking his world.
Karim Sahraoui – “Prelude”
One of my favorites of this summer, it just keeps on building and building. Always a magical moment on the dance floor. It sounds modern but also very much influenced by the classic Transmat sound. Epic!
Mall Grab – “I’ve Always Liked Grime”
Such a fat sounding club track. Love what DJ Haus does with the label in general—really interesting stuff.
Lauhaus – “Dyson Sphere”
After playing some great gigs together with Andre Crom on OFF label nights, I’m happy to finally join the family with my debut EP for the label.
Adryiano – “Brykk”
His previous release “Down South” was my biggest tunes of last summer. Played it every set, and I still do sometimes. And ever since I’ve been a fan of Adryiano. “Brykk” is just a dirty acid banger that hits like a bomb. I love it.
Jark Prongo – “M-Tech”
I think it might be my favorite Dutch house record. I always bring it with me and 9 out of 10 times I play it as well. It’s such a trip, and I can’t get enough of it.
