Werk Discs/Ninja Tune
Helena Hauff released her solo album via Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune on 4th September 2015. Titled “Discreet Desires”, it’s the most in depth summation of the Golden Pudel resident DJ’s improvised one-take machine-funk to date.
Ten tracks deep, Discreet Desires is the embodiment of Helena’s deep-seated beliefs about music as a radical force and unifying movement. Something that is evident from her growing stature as a selector and her enthusiasm for musical subcultures from punk to nu wave, industrial, krautrock and avant garde electro – all of which were rooted in raw experimentation and existed in polar opposition to the perfect, polished mainstream.
“Perfection is pretty boring. It doesn’t really exist anyway… only in death. Death is perfect.”
