Toolroom / Shanghaied
Having Pete Tong showcase HANNS' Toolroom Records debut release 'Kickdrum' on his famous BBC Radio 1 Show is undeniable proof that HANNS is not the average tech house musician. Add to this the support of Camelphat, Steve Lawler, Riva Starr, Joris Voorn, Dennis Ferrer, Prok & Fitch, Wally Lopez, Luigi Madonna, Felix da Housecat, Don Diablo, Chocolate Puma, Adrian Hour, Pezzner, and DJ S.K.T., and you are even further away from the norm.
Oddly, HANNS used to be the good kid: He finished university with three business degrees, thus scoring a promising corporate job. It all looked great on the outside! Then he went to obscure warehouse raves, fell in love… and quit!
HANNS is a man of contrast, a rebel who broke the shackles to follow his calling: creating an eclectic blend of tech house, techno, and house for the listener’s enjoyment. Trained in classical piano and producing since ten years, his sound is intense and ever-evolving with emotive, marginally melancholic yet abnormal breakdowns and raw back-stripped drops. Feeling saved and liberated by techno and house, HANNS is on a mission to bring what changed his life to the other rave-loving, longing souls out there.
Trusting deeply in his intuition and inspired by the likes of Jeremy Olander, Darius Syrossian, and Josh Butler, HANNS is crafting sets that take audiophiles on a musical voyage to odd sonic sensations. Dare to let go; HANNS will catch you.
