"If 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 André 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.
André Hommen was introduced to the music he loves via the radio. Musically his hometown Nettetal in western Germany doesn't have much to offer at first glance, although more than a few world-famous producers started their career there in the mid nineties. The music at the parties of his young peers wasn’t interesting for André. Seminal radio-shows opened him the doors to a world of music, which was way more thrilling and intriguing to him. On one of these days he made his decision: House music with its warmth and its groove is the sound which shall become his musical home. André Hommen started mixing by himself; at first in his bedroom but soon at some underground parties in his home-region.
André Hommen's life script has always had house music at it's center. For over five 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, The Martinez Brothers, Loco Dice, Henrik Schwarz and more. In collaboration with the producer Gorge of the 8bit label, André Hommen's first release for Objektivity was created - his acclaimed debut title "Marashi" from 2009 was one of the most played tracks of that year, followed by his second Objektivity release in 2011 - 'No Difference', a collaboration with Dennis Ferrer.
After a lot touring from 2011 - 2014, André finally found the time to go back in the studio. Following his well received remix of Ane Brun’s 'To Let Myself Go' on Objektivity, it was finally time for his very own, first ever solo EP called "The Bottom Line" mid 2014. This groovy number consists of three tracks that are style-wise all very different, showing off Hommen's wide range as producer. EP's title track 'The Bottom Line' was first featured in André's Boiler Room NY set (February, 2014), receiving great response and a massive "Track ID?" -explosion on social media. 'Epiphany' and 'Reach Out' on the B side do not disappoint either - as groovy as they are energetic, they would fit well in different stages of any set.
The 2015 follow up EP on Objektivity, ‘Battery Park’ picked up where ‚The Bottom Line’ left off. Resident Advisor has charted ‘Battery Park’ at #8 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.
André 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 Tensnake’s ‚The Walk’, 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. If you see André perform in a club somewhere around the world, fear not for he is not homesick. André Hommen has found his home.
