Lunchtime with its infectious, restrained, inexorable upward trajectory is a masterpiece that bides its time. Nothing is rushed, the pace is perfect, the arrangement sublime. The complex interplay of percussive parts becomes an integral melodic element, underpinned with the rising swell of deep bass pads, steadily building towards a euphoric breakdown before re-launching into a heavenly final movement of blissful magnificence.
It is no wonder that Lunchtime is such a master-class of musical brilliance, because H.O.S.H. is a DJ who values the art of mixing records and sequencing journeys - preferably long ones - over anything else. Anyone who has been witness to his DJ sets played during his gigs on every continent over the last few years would be unlikely to disagree. His lengthy sessions behind the decks have afforded him an exceptional, invaluable insight into exactly what works best on the worlds finest dancefloors.
"When it comes to producing, making music for me is like cooking - the meal / track gets better the more love you put in." H.O.S.H.
Since 2006, H.O.S.H. has been an integral cog in the Diynamic wheel (alongside sometime flatmate and label boss Solomun and frequent collaborator Stimming) and, as a result, has helped steer house music into highly adventurous, uncharted waters. His enthusiasm to drive electronic music ever forward is a perfect match with John Digweed and his Bedrock labels aim to always continue to push musical boundaries further.
