âIf I had to describe what house music means to me – it may sound vague – but all I can say is, house music is my motherland, my home… in the figurative sense, it’s like a place where I really feel at ease.” A strong statement from DJ AndrĂ© Hommen, who has probably seen hotel-rooms just as frequently as his own four walls of late since he has already traveled extensively with trips all over the world.
AndrĂ© Hommen’s life script has always had house music at it’s center. For over seven years now, he has played an important part within the creative and administrative team behind Dennis Ferrer’s New York City based Objektivity imprint and has had the opportunity to develop projects by artists including Ferrer, Ane Brun, Telepopmusik, The Martinez Brothers, Loco Dice, Henrik Schwarz and more.
From his debut release on Objektivity in 2009, âMarashiâ (a collab with Gorge of the 8bit label) to âNo Differenceâ two years later (a collab with Dennis Ferrer, Objektivity 2011) to his first ever solo EP “The Bottom Lineâ (Objektivity, 2014) and his most recent work such as Battery Park EP (Objektivity, 2015) and Introspectral EP (Poker Flat, 2015), Andre is committed to making quality productions and remixes, that resonate with both fans and toughest critics alike.
Looking back, there were probably two main releases that, in retrospect, could be considered pivotal for Andreâs career. First, there was his well received remix of Ane Brunâs ‘To Let Myself Go’ (Objektivity, 2014) that made it into the Top 20 Most played Tracks at ADE 2014. Then right after, ‘The Bottom Line EPâ, which dropped mid 2014. This groovy number consisted of three tracks that were, style-wise, all very different, showing off Hommen’s wide range as producer. EP’s title track ‘The Bottom Line’ was first featured in AndrĂ©’s Boiler Room NYC set (February, 2014), receiving great response and a massive “Track ID?” -explosion on social media.
The 2015 follow up EP on Objektivity, ‘Battery Park’ picked up where âThe Bottom Lineâ left off. Resident Advisor has currently charted âBattery Parkâ at #7 in RA Top 100 Tracks of 2015. ‘Introspectral’, his third solo-EP release, show-cases a producer who has fine-tuned his talents over a long period of time and – as the portmanteau title suggests – both reflected intensely and explored a broad spectrum of sounds.
AndrĂ© is currently dividing his time between touring and the studio, working on the next EP, while serving up some remixes in between. He has remixed Fritz Kalkbrenner on SUOL earlier in 2015, next up is his remix of Tensnakeâs âThe Walkâ, dropping on True Romance mid Dec 2015.
With a steady stream of releases and tour dates lined up for 2016, its safe to say he wont be seeing much of his home town Cologne. If you seeÂ AndrĂ©Â perform in a club somewhere around the world, fear not for he is not homesick. AndrĂ© Hommen has found his home.
