So who is Hans Bouffmyhre?

Hans Bouffmyhre

I’m a 28 year old DJ, producer & label manager from Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve been playing for almost 10 years now and i’m still learning all the time. I’m enjoying working with music on a daily basis and feel very grateful!

Your Distant Memories LP recently came out under the Secluded monikor, tell us how the album came to be?

Hans Bouffmyhre

I started the Secluded alias 3 years ago and after successful releases on EarToGround, Enemy, Soma Records & Sleaze, I decided the time was right to create an album. It has taken me around 6 months to produce the album and i’m very happy with the final product.

What was the reason for a second production project?

Hans Bouffmyhre

I noticed I was starting to produce tracks that were a bit different to my typical Hans Bouffmyhre style. They were deeper, with chords and a bit more atmosphere.

I thought it would be a good idea to start something new! At the time I was playing frequently in Berlin, mainly Berghain & Tresor. This heavily inspired me and I feel it came through in my music.

I’d say my Secluded sound is an inspired mix of modern Berlin techno and the classic Detroit sound.

Your Sleaze imprint is also doing very well, can you share any plans you have for the label in 2016?

Hans Bouffmyhre

Yes i’m very happy with how the label is going! 2016 is looking strong. I already have a few EP’s lined up from artists that we’ve been working with recently.

One I can tell you about is a special Sleaze Remix Project coming on vinyl at the start of the year. It’s featuring new remixes of successful tracks from our back catalog, which have never been previously remixed. Including remixes by Marco Bailey, Luigi Madonna, Petter B & Nikola Gala. Keep an eye out for that one!

Hans Bouffmyhre

That’s a tough one, but i’d have to say my dog Lucy, who is a beagle. She’s definitely the coolest dog ever!

Tell us something we shouldn’t know about you?

Hans Bouffmyhre

When i’m not travelling or working on music I like to keep fit! I play a lot of sports like football, tennis, boxing and i’m at the gym regularly. I think it’s important to keep fit and eat healthy.
