Description

Qualm is the new album by Helena Hauff, released via Ninja Tune. The title has a duality that Hauff enjoys - the German word "Qualm" ( kvalm) translates as fumes or smoke, whilst the English meaning refers to an uneasy feeling of doubt, worry, or fear, especially about one's own conduct. True to form, the record is unapologetically raw and finds her returning to her original modus operandi - jamming on her machines - "trying to create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers."

A former resident of the Golden Pudel club in her hometown Hamburg, Helena's profile and global standing has grown exponentially since the release of Discreet Desires in 2015, purely on the strength of her authenticity and her expertly curated DJ sets spanning acid, electro, EBM, techno and post punk. Gigging incessantly (and still lugging a box of records across the world) Helena's reputation earned her an invitation to join the BBC Radio 1 Residency, she was the subject of cover features for Crack Magazine and DJ Mag, she played headline sets at Sonar and Dekmantel, and at the end of 2017 Crack Magazine declared Helena "The Most Exciting DJ In The World (Right Now)" and her ballistic BBC Essential Mix was voted the best of 2017.

Helena made her recording debut in 2013 on Werkdiscs / Ninja Tune. She has since partnered with PAN (as Black Sites alongside F#x), Lux Rec, Bunker sublabel Panzerkreuz, Texan cassette imprint Handmade Birds and established her own label Return To Disorder (2015). Most recently she released the 4-track EP Have You Been There, Have You Seen It (2017) via Ninja Tune that "pushed her machines to their breaking point...capturing the ironclad force she delivers in her DJ sets while further carving out her own space in the electro landscape" (Pitchfork).
