There are hundreds of record labels, and then there are recognizable musical collectives–brotherhoods of sorts, working together to make electronic music rise to its undermined potential. One such crew is based proudly in Hamburg and goes by the name of Diynamic, a little great idea thought up by German producer Holger Behn aka H.O.S.H. The Diynamic label was built around a solid foundation of DJs and producers that pride themselves in the art of mixing records and sequencing journeys. The usual tale of musical genes being handed down the family line or yonder years spent taking music lessons does not apply here; H.O.S.H. got into production simply because he wanted to know how the beloved records he was playing came to exist. Once he mastered that, a Diynamic discovery was made.
We all had dreams when we were young of what we wanted to be, and H.O.S.H. believes it´s never too late to live them. On July 1, the Diynamic frontman released part 1 of the Forever Young Series, the first of peeks into what could have been and what could still be. With slinky synths, a funky, minimal 116 bpm, and carefree vocal snippets, H.O.S.H. makes you think life as a Lifeguard is easy breezy because “the sun is always shining.” Where do I sign up? If you didn’t care much for water growing up, perhaps you wanted to be a Cowboy. H.O.S.H. collaborates with fellow Diynamic friend, Stimming–together they layer terrestrial echoes and an edgier groove, making cowboy boots seem a little more exciting. Pick up Forever Young Part 1 here.
On Aug 5, H.O.S.H. released part two for the daredevils. Dive a little deeper into the fires of life with electrifying synths and a piercing bassline, for those that ever dreamed of being a Fireman. Or perhaps your mind was forever found daydreaming of extraterrestrial lifeforms and otherworldly dimensions. H.O.S.H. and Wayan create a paradigm of swerving synths and celestial sounds, bringing us back to our dreams of becoming an Astronaut. Drift away into part two here.
Too outdoorsy for ya? Come Sept 16, H.O.S.H. releases part three for the nightlife dreamers. A subtle blend of electrifying tempo, tones, and a very dance-able bassline sums up the life of a nightclub Dancer. And who never dreamed of being the creator behind it all, the honorable DiscJockey putting out palatable grooves for the world’s dancefloors? H.O.S.H. has created something for everyone, and he’s not done yet.
The Forever Young Series will consist of four releases, bringing together eight dream-worthy tracks. Here’s the kicker–a limited 500 copies of 10″ Vinyls will be released for each part of the series, four different covers that when brought together make a puzzle and form together one big picture of the ultimate childhood dream. Stay tuned for part four coming soon. Also, each release will come with a special video clearly connected with the “Forever Young” theme and the chosen character. Upon completion, there will be one complete Album CD released with all the tracks. This project is more than just an album; it’s aimed for collectors, dreamers, and lovers of the art of music.
