the hamburg-based dj returns with a visceral selection of minimalist techno that perfectly balances concrete, tripping beats with softer, transcendent electronic textures.
The title has a duality that Hauff enjoys - the German word 'Qualm' (kvalm) translates as fumes or smoke, whilst the English meaning refers to an uneasy feeling of doubt, worry, or fear, especially about one's own conduct. True to form, the record is unapologetically raw and finds her returning to her original modus operandi - jamming on her machines - “trying to create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers”. fans of daf and kraftwerk, or xander harris, laurel halo and legowelt should check this out! “’Qualm’ sees Helena Hauff cement her reputation as a vital voice in contemporary dance music” 8/10 – line of best fit.
