Helena Hauff is more than capable of writing and producing her own music to a very high standard but this DJ set bangs on another level.
Really great DJs, at least the ones I like, have the decency to hide their egos in the mix and let the music tell its own story. That’s exactly what happens here where the pacing and intensity of the set is nigh on perfect. I advise the CD purchase as flipping vinyl every 20 minutes would be tiresome. Interestingly the tracks tend to be either super contemporary or from around the turn of the century which is a great treat for those who can remember when clubbing was really cutting edge recreation with or without assistance. My personal highlight on first playing was when Nasenbluten kicked in for the stormer that’s 'Intellectual Killer'.
By then my speakers were really thumping and my teenage son anxiously enquired if I was going to turn it down before the neighbours complained. I didn’t and neither did they.
