Hours seeks input from a broad range of music to inspire his own twisted and progressive creations. His unique style and taste range across groovy ambient sounds, house tunes right into heavy techno. Still, the biggest impact on his vision for electronic music was the hell hole called Club Prag on the outskirts of the German city Stuttgart, where he started clubbing in his late teens, started DJing in 2009 and and is now known as the infamous “Lehmann Club”, located at the heart of South German Motor City, where he has been a resident since 2010.

Releasing hardcore punk records back in 2010 and 2011, the German producer looked forward to expand his musical horizon and started HOURS in 2012, a project dedicated to atmospheric electronic music with plenty of raw textures and grooves. Throughout this time he produced, mixed and mastered countless underground records for various German bands and artists, ranging from Hip-Hop to Death Metal.

After refining his sound for over two years, he finally released his debut on Driving Forces Recordings and followed it up with an EP for London based 2651 Records in 2014. Right now this ambitious young fellow is preparing even more material to be released in 2015. Asked if this broad in- and output of such diverse musical influence could have any adverse effects on his own material, his usual answer will be: “I don’t think so. For me, it’s just music. There is a time and place for anything. If I showed you the parallels between a great techno tune and a really underground sludge metal record, you’d be more than surprised…”.
