Born 11.11.77 up in the cold where the Baltic Sea eats Germany, Housemeister came to Berlin age 5, just got 12 when the wall came down. Times they were a-changin’, in fact times hit like a tsunami, and little Housemeister decided to ride that wave like a motherfucker. So by ’94, anarchy reigned. Punk and Rap, Turntables and Basement Parties, Love Parade und Mayday, Weed and Spray Cans, Fake IDs and 150bpm, E-Werk and Tresor, Walfish and Electric Ballroom. By ’95, he hits Kreuzberg, central Berlin, moving in with his best friend and legendary Hardwax Record Store right around the corner. He’s been mixing high-energy music ever since. By ’99, Housemeister was spinning all over the place, releasing 4 maxis with the BPitch collective, the first of which awkwardly been licenced by Karl Lagerfeld. By now most of europe knew what to get when entering the Housemeister Spacecraft: relentless, hardcore, dirty dancefloor ecstasy. Everybodys hands in the air, everbodys booties bouncing hard: techno in its total beauty. Housemeister kept riding the wave, spreading the rave, playing everywhere and every weekend, celebrating the living crap you can beat out of tools and crowds alike: the noize. So in 2005, he released his debut album „Enlarge your Dose“ on Boysnoize Records. You know that old proverb went “party like there’s no tomorrow“ after “Enlarge your Dose“, it was “party like there’s no too much“.
More releases on BNR followed, more gigs, more girls, more boys, more noize, so hyperactive Housemeister couldn’t help but set up his own label allyoucanbeat in 2006, releasing 10 more records leading up to the infamously acclaimed “Who’s that Noize?“ album of 2008. This shit hit the fan, and Housemeister started playing the world. So who is that Noize? A party-hard, no-bullshit bastard with a great sense of humor. A straight dog blend of city culture and animal instincts. A legend really. Housemeister never sleeps, they say. Producing and releasing, playing and partying all over the world, remixing and having stuff remixed by Boys Noize, Modeselektor, Bonaparte, Goose, Zombie Nation, Siriusmo, Alexander Kowalski, CLP, TokTok and many more, basically getting his dirty hands dirtier in any damn thing that’s music and loud.
In march 2011, he and Boys Noize released another full-length blow to the head: “Shizzo“. But Housemeister don’t stop. He’s mastered the wave, he’s survived the rave and he’s surely come out on his own two feet. The man is the message, and his new album is the shit. After all, if you can say it all in three words, who really needs a pussy ass biography?
