Harthouse

Harthouse

Profil:
Label Code: LC 5305 / LC 6450.
Harthouse was founded in 1992 by Heinz Roth (and Matthias Hoffmann (Brainchild) & Sven Väth) in Frankfurt.
It was distributed via "WEA Musik GmbH" and "Eye Q Musikproduktion GmbH".
In 1997 Sven Väth and Matthias Hoffmann left Harthouse and the label moved to Berlin in early February. On June 9th 1997 Harthouse had to declare insolvency.

The UK office continued operating and released a couple of records during the rest of 1997 with a totally different logo.
In 1998 UCMG Germany bought the licences to some Harthouse releases and the rights for the use of the label's trademark. Oliver Bondzio of Hardfloor became the new A&R and the "Retrospective"-compilation along with some new releases were published. After the bankruptcy of the UCMG Germany in 2003, Harthouse was discontinued for the second time.
In 2004 Daredo Music took over the rights of the Harthouse brand. The label is now called Harthouse Mannheim, but the old design is kept intact. Since November 2017, the label Harthouse, now just called "Harthouse" belongs to UCM.One.

Before Eye Q Music opened an office in London they had a licensing deal with Rising High. Releases with a catalog numbering scheme using HARTUK should be put under Harthouse U.K.

Label profile taken from Various - Eye Q:
In its present state, HARTHOUSE has a strong affiliation towards the feelings and instincts of a whole generation. Within the EYE Q family, it plays the role of an "idea tank" for new, unknown talents. With its 12" releases, it is mainly aimed at the DJs and clubs in the musical underground. Acts like HARDFLOOR, RESISTANCE D, THE AMBUSH, PULSE or SPICELAB have released 12" singles on HARTHOUSE for years and have grown beyond the club/rave scene. The HARTHOUSE albums of these acts, however, demonstrate different aesthetics in their way of working with sounds and sequences that are also effective outside of the clubs. Here we also find ALTER EGO whose goals are the production of "advanced home listening music". HARTHOUSE offers open-minded young artists a playing-field for creativity and experiments that do not necessarily originate from the Techno/House scene.

The golden age of HartHouse was 1992-1994, by 1995 the sound du jour was turning away from hard trance to trip-hop and jungle.The label had a massive output, over hundred 12 inchers released in less than five years, 1992-1996.

Good resume by the man like Frankie B. Don't forget that Harthouse were basically the platform for the very first forays into dance music by (now very well known artists, such as) Cari Lekebusch (as "Braincell", by the way if you haven't got "Man of Many Theories LP", I urge you to seek it out, a must for any techno collector) as well as the great Oliver Leib (as "Spicelab" and "The Ambush", apart from his early ZYX releases).

Unfortunately, the label tends to be overlooked these days with the advent of digitally-produced dance music and the (in my opinion, boring) in-vogue "minimal" sound that everyone's raving about these days...

A truly great label that trance, acid and techno heads alike will hold dear forever...

With the recent passing of Casper Pound, many will not know that from the single digit releases of Harthouse, Casper began a joint venture between Rising High & Harthouse, known as Harthouse U.K. The U.K. imprint was short-lived but was the sole factor of the later deal that became Harthouse U.S. through Moonshine. The actual German Harthouse label is responsible for jump-starting the trance genre and the formula of the big break-down, snare-roll effect found on 'Acperience' by Hardfloor. Hardfloor made the 303 sound become popular and also started an acid-house revival while Sven Vath became Germany's first high-profile DJ. At its high point Harthouse was an all around High-Profile label, releasing both techno, house & trance, sometimes fusing them together. Even when the label folded in the late nineties, Intergroove had a short run into the Millenium with good material, but by then the label's reputation had become history.
