MAILING LIST

hell on earth
Followers of the German techno icon will know that he is fond of grand statements. And this time he's spot on: Teufelswerk - German for "Devil's Work" - is Hell's masterpiece. Across 16 exquisite tracks divided into two themes, "Night" and "Day", Hell weaves an intoxicating spell. The nocturnal side offers a contemporary interpretation of Chicago house and Detroit techno. It's sunnier sister disc finds Hell embracing the rich cosmic groove of his roots. A lush, narcotic odyssey, the album sounds unlike anything he's produced in the past. But at the same time, Hell has drawn on his wealth of experience and put everything he knows into Teufelswerk.

"The album is very personal," he says. "All my knowledge is there. I went back really far to the early-'70s. I don't think I can make a better record."

Coming from Hell, whose life mirrors his art, that's saying something. A cultural chameleon with an encyclopedic musical knowledge and a bold sense of style, Hell has carved a reputation as the Warhol - or should that be War-hell? - of our generation.

"Andy Warhol was a people's champion. He ruled the world in his way," says Hell, who once dressed as the pop artist for a photo shoot. "The Factory was pushing art, music, films and whatever you can think about every day. He was a rule breaker. He knew how to play and how to motivate people."

When Hell launched his International Deejay Gigolos Empire in 1996, his rebellious creative streak gave the label a punk DIY aesthetic. An open-ended techno imprint with a natural pop sensibility, Gigolo immediately stood out and attracted like-minded artists such as Fischerspooner, Vitalic, Miss Kittin & the Hacker, Tiga, even the Pet Shop Boys, Jeff Mills and Dopplereffekt. Today, Gigolo in Berlin is to Hell what the Factory in New York was to Warhol. Like Warhol, Hell is the man with the vision, whose enthusiasm and inspiration to this day is fueled by, and rubs off on, the close-knit family of musicians, fashion designers, photographers, film makers, video artists and actors who surround him. Fans of the label will remember the short-lived collaboration with Amanda La Pore, who can often be found in the Gigolo logo and on the Tiga & Zyntherius Video for "Sunglasses at Night." There are many examples of Gigolo and Hell blurring the lines between music and art, a popular aesthetic in Hell's arsenal and one that was celebrated in two gallery exhibitions; one in London, and one in Berlin both in 2007.

Hell - once, a long time ago, Helmut Geier - is 46 years old and has DJed for more than half those years. In 1985, he was one of the first in Germany to DJ house music, back when Steve ‘Silk' Hurley made the first Chicago house tracks. Later, through Gigolo, he put out lost classics by Chicago house legends Bobby Konders and DJ Pierre. He also re-released what's considered the first Detroit techno song, "Sharevari" by A Number of Names, and rekindled the career of new-wave heroes Tuxedomoon. One of Gigolo's key releases is Hell's compilation of early-'80s German post-punk, New Deutsch.

In 1992, Hell's haunting debut single, "My Definition of House Music" became a dancefloor hymn, selling 50,000 copies. Three years later, Hell recorded a live BBC John Peel Session in Munich, which came out as the "Original Street Techno" EP. As a producer, Hell has covered a lot of ground. He's one of the pioneers of German house and techno, and today, as Teufelswerk attests, he's in the finest form of his life.

Perhaps because he is so successful and does whatever he pleases, cutting a glamorous swathe through electronic music, the media tend to be kind to him. In the early days, they called Hell "das gute gewiessen des deutschen techno", which means "the good soul of German techno". No stranger to receiving awards for his prowess in the music business, in 2002, he was crowned Man of the Year by GQ magazine.

Those familiar with Hell's earlier albums, 1998's Munich Machine and 2004's NY Muscle, will recognize the "Night" half of this double-album. A raw mix of Chicago and Detroit influences combined with Hell's swashbuckling approach to electronics, this portion is for the dancefloor. Ten-minute jams such as "Wonderland" and "Electronic Germany" zoom and thrust with menacing intent. "The Disaster", the single produced by Hell and longstanding collaborators Mijk van Dijk and &Me, is the kind of labyrinthine techno trip that will disorientate any dancefloor.

"The "Night" album is what people expect from a guy like me," says Hell, who spins three of four times most weekends around the world. "I choose a lot of producers in different studios with different sounds and put my flavor there. It is from a DJ for the other DJs"

"Bodyfarm", a sinister cut co-produced by Frankfurt's Antony Rother, was inspired by the unsettling images of Taryn Simon, an American photographer and fine artist specializing in uncovering rarely seen sites from the domains of science and government (please visit tarynsimon.com). For "Night", Hell hooked up once more with hip-hop superstar P. Diddy for freestyle jack-track and future single, "The DJ". The pair had worked before on "Let's Get Ill" and "Check This".

The most pleasant, eyebrow-raising moment here is the collaboration with Bryan Ferry, "U Can Dance". This serpentine disco burner, a smoldering highlight of Teufelswerk, finally unites two of modern pop's suavest outsiders.

"I am very proud to work with Bryan Ferry, of course," says Hell, who encountered the singer in London when he was asked to remix Roxy Music a couple of years ago. Hell pruned "U Can Dance" in Vienna with his old friend Peter Kruder, of Kruder and Dorfmeister fame. Here, in Kruder's G-Stone studio, assisted by noted multi-instrumentalists Christian Prommer and Roberto Di Gioia, Hell and Kruder wrote and produced the "Day" half of Teufelswerk. This is Hell's enchanting interpretation of Kosmische Musik, that style of '70s psychedelic experimental boogie played by Can and NEU! This is the music that inspired the beginning of Hell's career.

"I have done Kosmische Musik in a new way," he says. "This is where I come from, I grew up with the early German electronic pioneers of music, and this is why I went in this direction. Often it is called German electronic avant-garde, or psychedelic music. I went back to the '70s and tried to do it in my own way."

Listen to "The Angst", the lead single from Teufelswerk, and you'll appreciate the direction Hell is taking with Peter Kruder at the controls. Celestial vocals cascade around an acoustic guitar figure as a motorik rhythm propels it ever skywards, sharing space, spiritually at least, with Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk and Can.

On "Day", "Germania", "Hell's Kitchen" and "I Prefer Women to Men Anyway" unravel with sinuous grace, culminating in a cosmic reading of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine". Hell is no stranger to covers, having tackled Barry Manilow's "Copacabana," Throbbing Gristle's "Hot On The Heel's" and German No-Wave band No More's "Suicide Commando" on Munich Machine. Although Hell was born in 1962, he was too young to fully appreciate the likes of Tangerine Dream and Amon Duul in their mid-'70s prime. He was more into Slade and Sweet. "Pop and glam-rock was more appealing to me because these bands looked great and were all over the TV." By the time Hell was old enough to dig Kosmische Musik, punk had arrived and he was into the Damned, who sounded new, fresh and powerful.

For Hell, then, Teufelswerk rounds up his life's work so far - and he has already led a remarkable life. It is dramatic, beautiful, dark and soulful, a milestone in German electronic music. "Teufelswerk represents the music in the best way: it's the work of the devil," he says, "and it's the work of me, the work of Hell."

Prepare to be moved, deeply.

Westbam - You Need The Drugs (DJ Hell Remix)


You Need The Drugs is 100% Westbam, which sees him belie a widely spread tale, namely that drugs are a must at every good club night. Theres been practically no interview in the last 30 years in which I wasnt asked about drugs, says the dance pioneer. So the song You Need The Drugs, sung by Richard Butler, vocalist of new wave band Psychedelic Furs, is the first explicit electronic appeal AGAINST the use of drugs, with a clear message: drugs are a bore! Drugs destroy relationships! Drugs are always counterproductive! Probably the first anti-drugs anthem of all time.

'Teufelswerk House Remixes' - DIGITAL RELEASE July, 22


Out Now! 'Schöneberg' remixed by Hell, Abe Duque & Donnacha Costello Beatsmedia

 The original hit us for the first time in 1993, on Superstition records, and now we’re graced by this 12” featuring remixes by none other than DJ Hell, Abe Duque and Donnacha Costello.

Rocking the A side, Hell’s staccato-tronic, urgent re-think fuses solid state drums, classic wild-pitching sentiments and tonnes of energy in a frenetic yet reduced electronic jam! Opening up and freaking out into a skipping, bass driven funk tool the unmistakable tones of the original pulse through as an emotional climax awaits!



'U CAN DANCE' FEAT. BRYAN FERRY AVAILABLE IN 7 DIFERRENT VERSIONS

It was only a matter of time. Two genre-defining artists together - pop music and dance music's most famous arbiters of taste, collaborating at last. HELL's 'U Can Dance' is an interpretation of an unreleased Bryan Ferry song, but it's one that reflects a perfect melding of two distinct personalities, a record that sounds as if the voice and music were made for each other.

HELL's highly anticipated new single featuring Bryan Ferry 'U Can Dance' is finally released on 8th, February in a powerful package with remixes from Carl Craig, Simian Mobile Disco, Tim Goldsworthy and Kikumot Allstars. 'U Can Dance' has already been named one of the top 10 club music of 2009 by New York Times Magazine before its release, and massive reviews include:

DJ MAG
A DJ Hell/Bryan Ferry collaboration is never going to be mundane, but this surpasses expectations. 'U Can Dance' is a lost Roxy Music track rendered into a contemporary club classic by the visionary hands of HELL. Add into this conspiracy of talent remixes from Carl Craig (who creates two strokes of pure genius), DFA's effortless helms-man Tim Goldsworthy and Simian Mobile Disco on their most on-point form, and you hardly need us to tell you: you need this. 5 stars.

CLASH MAGAZINE
Here we get glammed up techno, the likes of which we've not heard for a while. It's dated romantic vocals are its charm. Driving nocturnal bass keeps heads down on this tip whilst a standout remix from Sir Carl Craig sees him up the narcotic synth stabs to epic proportions. Robert Hood would be proud. A great single delivered by a triptych of true, if disparate legends.

DMC ZZUB CHART
The stunning fashionista anthem from 'Teufelswerk'. In it’s original form 'U Can Dance' features the iconic Bryan Ferry doing his distinctive crooning over percolating sophisticated Moroder-esque disco rhythms, and it works like a marriage made in heaven. With remixes from Carl Craig, Tim Goldsworthy and Simian Mobile Disco who round off the package with roof raising spaced out electronics and a hypnotic driving groove. Massive. No.1 for 2 weeks

'THE DJ' FEAT. P. DIDDY OUT NOW!

"‘The DJ' on which P Diddy (yes, him again) shouts a lot about how "motherfuckers" should play the 13-minute versions of tracks is one of the most ridiculous, brilliant things you will have heard in a long time." Tony Naylor in The Guardian

The latest single taken from the much lauded ‘Teufelswerk’ long player sees Hell “hooking-up” once more with hip-hop superstar P. Diddy for the freestyle jack-track “The DJ”. The pair worked together before on “Let’s Get Ill” and “Check This,” creating two classic dance floor hits. But for ‘The DJ’ these two masters wanted to set the techno world straight and send a very clear message ‘to the mother fucker plays a 4 minute version.’ That you ‘can’t get even get into your thing with a 4 minute version.’ With this in mind Hell is very pleased to present his latest single 'The DJ' feat. P. Diddy; one original track, four remixes, over one hour of music! So yes, “This goes out to all the mother fuckers that like 15-20 minute versions of a mother fucking record.”

As an internationally revered performer Hell knows a thing or two about DJing and with his recent releases we see a definite shift towards lengthy mixes. But nothing prepared Gigolo for the package we have here, 5 tracks, 60+ minutes of music with the Radio Slave mix weighing in at a colossal 28 minutes.

Radio Slave presented this version at ‘We Love…’ at Space in Ibiza, in the presence of one Pete Tong - So impressed was Tongy that he played it the following week on his BBC Radio 1 ‘In New Music We Trust' show in the Big Three section. But this is not the first time the record has been played on Pete Tong’s Radio 1show. In fact the original was played by the man himself and also guest DJ Laurent Garnier for the Essential Mix. So it is fair to say that this record is already pretty Hot with most big name DJ’s!



"All I can say is FFFWWAAAARRRGGGHHHHH ......!!!!!!! The remix of mister Radio Slave and the Deetron ones are STUNNNNNNNING! Many thanks again for all this pleasure for my hears and hips!!!" - Laurent Garnier

"Love this." - Tom Findlay / Groove Armada

"Insane!!" - Sasha

"Cannot go any wrong and this Remix makes no exception. Solid beats as usual, and pure fun on the dancefloor! Full support." - Radio Slave

"Yeah! Very oldschool sound, I always liked the excellent loop of the bass on Sandée´s 'Notice me' track... Deetron and Paul Woolford are my fav remixers, even it´s very hard to decide amongst this nice collection of versions." - Angel Molina

"Like it!" - Yousef

"Maybe a bit long? ;) 5/5" - Dopamine

"Absolutely first rate, despite Diddy blathering all over it. Radio Slave at the top his game." - Ewan Pearson

"Love it, great!" - Ian Pooley

"Deetron remix is super!" - Kiki

"Been waiting for this, sounds great!!!" - Gregor Tresher

WENDY&JIM & HELL: UNDERWEAR LINE LAUNCH

 

Helmut Geier, aka DJ Hell of International DJ Gigolos, has long been a part of the fashion scene. He plays often for couture and prêt-à-porter shows and even produced a mix compilation for Chanel.

Recently, Geier has been exploring the fashion world from a different angle, as a designer. After providing the music for one of their runway shows, he developed a relationship with Austrian label Wendy&Jim and has since collaborated on a line of underwear for the team—now “Wendy&Jim & Hell.”

The line, consisting of three different styles in varying fabrics—pure organic cotton, lightweight mesh and lace will be available later this year in select boutiques around the world, and was featured at Berlin’s SS10 Fashion Week at Designer Showrooms.

HELL RELEASES THE ANGST (CAT# GIGOLO231)

"This first cut, 'The Angst Pt. 1,' we're guessing is a "night" piece, with a sort of Radiohead "Everything Is In The Right Place" vibe downing in ambient acid ectoplasma." - URB.com

"Hell has a better crack than most at playing the pop star and because of that there's an aura of plastic and white leather around him. That's going to change with 'The Angst' and it's sister 'The Angst Pt. 2'. The first section sees Kruder & Dorfmeister meet Aphex Twin in the Barbican (due in part to Peter Kruder's production role) but then it builds into an Uber-cool acid 'n' glitch chugger. Epic - Hell's best in ages." - DJ MAGAZINE

"You'd be forgiven for suspecting DJ Hell's tracks are a miasma of clanging techno beats at face melting tempos -- his back catalog wouldn't prove you wrong. But his latest album, Teufelswerk, and "The Angst Pt. 1" which precedes it, is much more inviting and nuanced. With only a gentle kick drum and oscillating synth to connect "The Angst" to the dance floor (that's where a Henrik Schwarz remix compes in), it's the overcast electric piano, mournful strums and shredded vocals that usher in the moody atmosphere. It's almost as if Hell is setting the stage for a dramatic dual set in Germany's Black Forest. His album will reveal what comes next." - RCRDLBL

DJ HELL CREATES DANCE MUSIC HEAVEN AT LAST!

Teufelswerk - German for "Devil's Work" - is Hell's masterpiece. Across 16 exquisite tracks divided into two themes, "Night" and "Day" , Hell weaves an intoxicating spell. The nocturnal side offers a contemporary interpretation of Chicago house and Detroit techno. It's sunnier sister disc finds Hell embracing the rich cosmic groove of his roots. A lush, narcotic odyssey, the album sounds unlike anything he's produced in the past. But at the same time, Hell has drawn on his wealth of experience and put everything he knows into Teufelswerk.
