Hooj Choons

Hooj Choons

Profile:
One of the UK's largest progressive labels, founded in 1991 by Red Jerry and Phil Howells (who left soon thereafter). It released numerous #1 records to the world. Its changing styles throughout the years did much to guide the tastes of DJs and dance floors around the world. Probably best known for re-releasing the mid-90's dance floor hit "Café Del Mar" by Energy 52, which remains a dance floor classic. It specialized in progressive house and progressive trance, although later releases dabbled in breaks, deep house, electro and ambient flavours. It shut down in mid-2003 due to ongoing financial difficulties, but returned in 2006 under the same management as Lost Language. Only a few new releases appeared on the label, and the company Hooj Choons Ltd. that operated since 1993 was dissolved in 2010. After a few years in a dormant state, the Hooj name has again been restarted in January 2014, with an expected "sparse but high quality release schedule".

A classic label up to about 2001. 2002 and after the releases are extremely boring. Before then it was pretty much a surefire win with every release. Early releases in the mid 90's were excellent progressive then they released some top quality trance / progressive for a few years.

The big change came when the design changed on the sleeves, maybe Silvio Ecomo - Standing and Pilgrimage to Paradise were the exceptions but generally 2002 onwards it became quite lacklustre. Maybe this more 'bland' sound contributed to their demise. But then again, the trance / progressive scene had all but gone in 2002 and cheese took over so i suppose they had no choice. Still collected them all almost though.

Of all the music and labels that I have been collecting only Hooj Choons has had such a constant flow of excellence regarding their releases over the years they were active that I somehow feel forced to write something about them. I have been considering this writing a long time after all I have way over hundred releases from their catalog (and actually determined to seek the rest).

So what´s so special about this label? I was reading some conversation over forums where there was talked about the greatest electronic music labels of all time and someone mentioned Hooj Choons. Suddenly it was everyone fighting against this opinion and the conversation ended everyone laughing for their effort (this was some forum for IDM-stuff, so it was obvious there would be critical opinions ahead). Anyway, I think most of the arguments were kind of immature and showed unawareness of the history and development of the electronic music scene in the whole scale. Sure it´s a fact that there has been lots of labels that put out more experimental and forward thinking releases over the years (R&S, Warp, ...) but I think it´s a bit harsh to say that a label that worked over 15 years independent in slightly more commercial venues would be less effective and meaningfull, specially when they were able to move forward, change their sound in progressive manner and always keep their input high quality! I personally think that Hooj Choons shoul be regarded as one of the few special labels that changed the sound of electronic music for good!

The excellence behind their work lies down to one man: Rej Jerry (Jeremy Dickens)! Even though he was not alone making all it happen I believe that he was responsible for finding the talent and quality behind several artists. Hooj was always ahead of everyone seeking really good tracks to be signed for their label. Quality that really turned them genious was however the nose for talented producers to remix the signed tracks and turn them to Hooj Choons sound. The list is long but at least these names should be praised: Martin Freeland (Man With No Name), John Graham (from the Red Parrot label) and the rest of the Tilt posse, Matt Darey (Li Kwan, Bi Boy Action Squad, Lost Tribe), Jesse Skeens (Medway), Omid Nourizadeh, Nalin & Kane and several others!

Hooj was also able to surf the waves of evolving music scene. Their dramatic curve spanning over the years had at least three different noticeable stages. First one being melodic and almost happy house period (releases around 1-60), second one for the progessive and somewhat euphoric house and trance sound (up to around 100th release) with out forgetting some techno and breakbeat orientated releases and finally the matured and sophisticated progressive, electro and breakbeat influenced house and disco that dominated until the closure of the label in 2003. There was always hints for what was coming in the future in their releases, because the producers behind the remixes had their recognicable sound and I feel they had artistic liberacy to create their own path.

Of course the original material was good at it`s own (Greece 2000, Stage One, Sacred Cycles, Escape (Drivin to Heaven), Dont You Want Me, and so on...) and that proves the skills of Red Jerry to pick the cherries, to be outstanding. And when he found tracks that were too far out from the main label to sell they introduced some fine sublabels to do the job (Prolekult is one heck of a label for the acid and hardtrance heads)!

I haven´t found a single release from their catalog yet that I wouldn´t have liked. Every release is a winner and if the original track has dated somewhat badly, there is always some remixes that still sound fresh! My personal favourites are Billy Hendrix – Body Shine, 16B – Escape, Red Sun – This Love (Our House Remix), Jark Prongo – Moving Trough Your System, Katcha – Touched by God and naturally all the L.S.G, Space Manouevres, Nalin & Kane and Lost Tribe releases.

I strongly suggest that everyone who`s interested about evolution of (commercial) electronic music to listen at least the excellent compilations they released: Some of these were Hooj 1-3, Deeper Shades of Hooj 1-3, Nu-Progressive Era and specially if you can find Red Jerry`s Late Night Drive mix (for the Muzik mag) to sum up the late sound.

Hooj Choons always looked forward to bring quality music without searching for the unique style. Trance, house, progressive who cares ? Only music counts. Label is now history but definitely the most influenced label with artists from different sources.
Just buy all the releases from the very first one to the very last one and you'll see.
Also pay attention to the hoojman mate who appears on each release. By all accounts this started off as a roughly drawn makeshift logo by Phil Howells Girlfriend. In the early releases this was in crayon. The artwork developed and became more definted with each release. After the 30th or so release the Hooj Man cartoon on the back of each release was inspired by the title on the flip side. We can call this artwork "The Adventures of Hooj Man"

With more than two (or even four) handfulls of excellent releases, like Lustral's Everytime, Tilt, Space Manouvres Stage One, Greece 2000,Viper, and many other now classics, Hooj not only has defined music during the 90's and early 21st Century, and played in clubs around the world, Any respectable DJ still carries a Hooj Choons release in their crate.
But now with their reappearance in the scene, we are looking at another Era of excellent music from this label.
They are not only the spice of life, they are the Chef, with all the right ingredients for a superb musical feast.

In my opinion a label that represents all that trance should have remained. Hooj Choons always seemed to have a knack for releasing tracks that were deep, emotional and story-telling while avoiding the pop-like evolution of trance as a whole. Such artists as Solar Stone, Energy-52, Paragliders (Oliver Lieb), Nalin and Kane, Three Drives and many others released some of thier best works on this now defunct but timeless label. More than just "The Occasional Providers of Half Decent House", Hooj Choons was the epitome of what a label should be.

It appears that Hooj is no more - after ongoing finaincial difficulties, the label has finally closed down. Hooj.com will continue to trade, and all back-catalogue releases currently available will remain so for the time being.

Hooj has done more for the dance / electronic music industry than any other label, DJ or artist. They will be sorely missed.

Hooj is the spice of life.. there's so much variety here, from deep dark scary releases to breaks influenced house, to techno, to progressive house.. Hooj does it all, and they do it well.

This label produces some excellent progressive house that ranges from floor stomping to tribally tinged to deep fun. 16B produces so many remixes and makes great tracks like "The Game." Morel puts many musical elements together to produce some good tracks like the contemporary classic "Escape (driving to Heaven)". To top it off they have acts like LSG (great tracks), marmion (of five years and tomarrow!), and the makers of the "orange theme", Cygnus X. Hooj keeps Seb Fontaine in business!
