DJ HELL TO RELEASE "THE ANGST" & "THE ANGST" PART 2



Listen to “The Angst” & “The Angst Pt. 2,” the lead single from DJ Hell’s forthcoming album Teufelswerk, and you’ll appreciate the direction Hell is taking. Here’s a teaser: Teufelswerk – the German for “Devil’s Work” – is Hell’s masterpiece. Across 16 exquisite tracks divided into two themes, “Night” and “Day”, Hell weaves an intoxicating spell. Celestial vocals cascade around an acoustic guitar figure as a motorik rhythm propels it ever skywards, sharing space, spiritually at least, with Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk and Can.




Hell, with his old friend Peter Kruder produced the "Day" half assisted by noted multi-instrumentalists Christian Prommer and Roberto Di Gioia. The “Night” album is raw mix of Chicago and Detroit influences combined with Hell’s swashbuckling approach to electronics, this portion is for the dance floor.




For this single release Hell invited Henrik Schwarz to bring a touch of the night to “The Angst Pt. 1 and Pt. 2.” As a stand-alone piece of music it’s as solid as the dance floors it will be played on, but immediately hints at the wealth of ideas that exist on this forthcoming album. Teufelswerk is a lush, narcotic odyssey, the album sounds unlike anything he’s produced in the past. “The album is very personal,” Hell says. “All my knowledge is there…I don’t think I can make a better record.”
