Biografie: Having brewed on the underground for the better part of five years, the DJ/live outfit Session Victim is no strangers to house heads.
One part Berliner, one part Hamburger, Session Victim constitutes of Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling, and derives from over two decades of friendship built on an unyielding black wax mentality. A mentality that has seen them put out records on labels of such calibre as Delusions Of Grandeur, Permanent Vacation, Morris/Audio and Wolf Music, along with Freer’s vinyl-only label Retreat that he helms alongside fellow Berliner Quarion, garnering accolades from peers and aficionados along the way.
The duo’s melodic yet groovy synthesis of deep house and nu-disco deftly references all the vintage goodness in soul, funk and jazz, igniting afterhours parties and finding its way into record crates on an international scale. Making an unabashed entry at #21 in Resident Advisor’s end of year ‘Top 50 tracks’ poll last year, their exceptionally feel-good underground hit ‘Good Intentions’ moved a whole electronic nation with what could best be described as ‘the closing track of 2011’.
This spring, Session Victim promise to bounce into the spotlight, courtesy of a highly anticipated debut long-player ‘The Haunted House of House’, which will be released on Delusions Of Grandeur.
Comprised of 11 shimmering tracks, which are all stand-alone single material in their own right, the LP delves into past times, showcasing Session Victim’s meticulous sampling finesse and production technique, transmitting a generally good times vibe assured to resonate with the great and good of the electronic community.
Spending last year perfecting the details of their intricate live show, all the strands of Session Victim come together as the summer months of 2012 unfold – expect all eyes on them.
