You may not be familiar with Germany’s Stefan Helmke and Steffen Neuhaus, together known as Hanne & Lore—but if you’re at all into high-grade electronic house that pays tribute to its Chicago roots while looking towards the future, chances are you will be soon. Last year, the pair launched the Heulsuse label—but Helmke and Neuhaus have actually been moving dance floors with their rock-solid rhythms for a while now, via a series of hot productions and remixes for Monaberry (home of Andhim, Super Flu, Monkey Safari et.al.), My Best Friend, Sunset Handjob and similarly groovy imprints. The pair have never deejayed in NYC, but that’ll change on Saturday, March 1, when the pair play the Bespoke Musik bash at a secret Brooklyn location, with support coming from the Audiolith label’s talented Rampue, who’ll be laying down a live set. Still not sure? Check out this recent DJ set of Hanne & Lore’s subtle yet strapping sonics, culled from the Bespoke Musik Radio series of mixes; we think it’ll convince you.
Bespoke Musik: Hanne & Lore is Saturday, March 1.
