DJ, producer and ex-resident of Hamburg's Golden Pudel Club, Helena Hauff has released a compilation of her earliest recordings from 2011 and 2014 via Dark Entries Records.
The compilation titled, A Tape, was originally released on limited run cassette tape by Handmade Birds in 2015. The collection spans Hauff’s musical universe, from jacking acid-techno to krautish zone-outs and scuzzy feedback interludes. Featuring deep, sinister analog synth sequences, industrial dissonance, and heavy percussion.
All tracks on the vinyl was mastered by James Plotkin with vinyl EQ and lacquer cut by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in a custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring a checkered graphic and black lines, highlighted by yellow and green for maximum visual tension. Also included is a double-sided postcard with notes.
