Just in time for the one-year anniversary of Hounah’s first album „Broken Land“ he releases three remixes from friends. With their organic but also electronic style AFAR take us on their very own journey to their interpretation of „Reflections“. Mexico-City resident Thomass Jackson shows us once again how much depth Slow-Disco can unfold without losing the reference to „Hounah“. Daniela La Luz surprises us with her voice and with an unbelievable free-spinning acid trip – so that you can still dream at 136 BPM.

With „Broken Land“ Daniel Nitsch presents the first album of his latest project Hounah – and thus grants a deep look into his feelings and thoughts. Pieces like „Sorrow“, „Fairbanks“ or „Norton Bay“, which invite you trace inside, are accompanied by those that present Daniel’s personal views on very political and generally relevant issues, presented in songs like „Revolution“, „Guilty State“ or „Cash For Your Home“. They cover topics like racism and gentrification, deal with the burden that imperialism places on us. Ask for what a future could look like – and how it could successfully happen at all. Thus, Hounah is not a feel-good project, „Broken Land“, the title suggests it, a profound, here and there even painful inventory, which wants to stimulate reflection and further thinking.
Very diverse, thematically as well as musically – and created with great attention to detail. Listening closely allows light bulb effects in terms of content, but also in terms of sound, lets us walk in the footsteps of downbeat, hip-hop, trip-hop, ambient, electronica and jazz. Hounah quickly reveals here that they are not afraid of breaks, but are also capable of soulful fusions in sound collages.
The circle of friends behind Hounah, consisting of producer Daniel Nitsch, pianist Johann Blanchard, singer Lena Schmidt and guitarist Marten Pankow, came together for the album „Broken Land“ in order to immediately try out further alliances: two of the songs on the album were created in creative cooperation with A-F-R-O, infamous rapper from Los Angeles. And so it is little surprise that each song creates a new world of sounds and thoughts – and one suspects already after the first tracks that there is more waiting for us, that „Broken Land“ will not remain Hounah’s last work.
Revolution feat. A-F-R-O is the second single from Daniel Nitsch’s first album Broken Land of his latest project Hounah. For this song Daniel worked in a creative cooperation with A-F-R-O, the internationally known rapper from Los Angeles. Influenced by thoughts about the Black-Lives-Matter-Movement they declare thinking politically and questioning critically could be the first step for a change. Not only as a musician, but also as a human being. Rise up!
Remixes by Dave DK and Twit One.
