In the beginning there was the funk. A magical power source of unknown origin. Myth upholds that Michal Ho once showered his limbs in this fountain of creativity, and thus earned him his fantastic powers. A more traditional accounting would perhaps uphold that Michal Ho was initiated to electronic club music by the likes of Photek and Moritz von Oswald. His bass-bouncy and sampladelic techno style certainly has earned him a community of fans across the globe. And his quirky collaborations with Samim have positioned him comfortably in the hall of fame of Swiss electronic music heroes. He is, as Resident Advisor once tagged him, "not your average minimal techno guy". Returning from his 2011 album "A Minute for Everyone" for Jay Haze's Tuning Spork label, Mr. Ho has produced a downright slammer for Zurich imprint Nice Try Records. The somewhat ironically titled "Don't Rush" is a bass-driven hypnotic monster, topped by jumbling vocals. Contexterrior boss and long-time musical friend Jay Haze delivers a remix that offers a likewise punchy version of this minimal funk gem. On the flip side, Michal grows into the sampler kid he was and always will be. On and on. Yeah, we're mesmerized.
