LABELS: Lauter Unfug, A tarnish Moth, Konsep Records
“Haste Midi” is a project created by Alex Heide & Matthias Horn.
They first met each at a Festival in Croatia, and soon, they discovered that they have more in common than just their love for Festivals: their love for punchy drums, repetetive loops, dark basslines, fancy vocals and analogue machines.
Their live project “Haste Midi ?” was born.
Living in different cities, Luxembourg and Berlin, they’re jamming together as many times as possible.
Their first upcoming EP is the best proof of what they want —> Going forward.
And 2016 will be a good year for them.
- Hello guys! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Good morning. We ́re fine, thanks for having us! We ́re about to finish a new Ep, 2 laid back „Deep Acid“ tunes. I’m now working on another remix as my solo project later on tonight i ́m going out. Alex is playing a gig in Saarbrücken tonight.
Does your Pseudonym “Haste Midi” have a deeper meaning?
Yes, it has. This came up during our production sessions which were at the beginning.. hm let’s say there has been some chaos around 🙂 One of the most recurrent questions was „Haste Midi?“ when were looking for a way to sync a midi device. Later on we saw that it contains all letters of our names mashed up, so it fits pretty well..
Plase tell us a bit about your latest releases!
Well, we ́re a newly formed duo as you might know, we haven ́t a big discography yet. Our latest release „ Fool „ on Lauter Unfug could be understood as a homage to the powerful House music of the 90 ́s – simple, fast, driving. The 2 songs are love songs, in fact!
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned in 2016?
There’s another track coming out soon on Konsep Records called „POW“- then we have to finish a couple of remixes till the end of this month and we are also working on our first album.
What was your funniest or craziest experience while touring?
Once, we ́ve played a gig in a small venue in Luxembourg, called Rocas, when somebody drunk hit a candle situated next to the Turntable. The whole Turntable was full of Wax and was not able to turn anymore – so we had to clean it. This was ́t funny at all, but crazy as fuck.
