DescriptionTheir debut Dogs took the Beatport Deep House Charts by storm. With their second EP Jack the Vienna-based duo HVOB fuel the anticipation for their forthcoming debut album.
In 2012, a young duo from Vienna proved to be one of the great success stories of Europes electronic music landscape: HVOB (short for Her Voice over Boys) only uploaded initial snippets on Soundcloud last April, reached number 4 in the Beatport Deep House Charts with their debut EP Dogs, number 10 in the Top Live Acts of the Year and number 11 in the Best Singles of 2012 in DE:BUGs readers' poll, while performing live at festivals such as Germanys Melt!. Moreover, the year was concluded by a particular honour: the leading Lebanese-French fashion designer Elie Saab chose HVOBs sound for his new collection video.
With their inaugural release, Anna Müller (composition, production, vocals) and Paul Wallner (composition and final production) managed to create an entirely new and unique world of sound: HVOB represent intelligent and sophisticated electronic music that is equally emotive and melodic.
2013 kicks off with the release of HVOBs second EP: Jack will be available on vinyl and Beatport on February 22. Here, the duo presents two new original tracks in the form of Jack and Moon, while one will also find two prominent remixes of Jack. The Berliner DJs Niconé & Sascha Braemer weave the originals driving beats and Anna Müllers hypnotic voice into their own sound aesthetic, and Valencias Edu Imbernon transforms Jack into a dark and forceful deep house track.
Especially Edu Imbernons contribution highlights HVOBs current standing within Europes scene: the Spaniard, who recently remixed The Reunion by The XX among others, was so impressed by HVOBs sound that it led him to approach the young Viennese pair and offer a collaboration.
Jack is the precursor to HVOBs debut LP, set to be released March 8. After the album release, HVOB, who on stage perform live and with a drummer, are going to embark on a European tour. Some stops include: Paris (as part of Paris Fashion Week), Berlin, Zurich more infos: www.hvob-music.com.
