On December 24 Christmas comes early for Hell fans as the legendary DJ unleashes the first single from his forthcoming fifth studio album “ZUKUNFTSMUSIK”. It´s arguably one of his deepest marriages of music and art to date… Collaborating with Tom Of Finland Foundation, the LA-based celebrants of queer culture`s most iconic illustrators, Hell´s gritty, grainy, sweaty single pays homage to electronic music`s deepest, longest standing roots. The era where Paradise Garage and The Warehouse and DJs such as Hardy and Levan threw down then-unclassifiable fusions to the most multicultural, multisexual dancefloors in history. Hell´s first single in well over a year, “I Want U” throbs and thrusts with in-the-moment physical tension. Unhurried and extensive in its 11+ minute arrangement, it`s every bit as deep and as long as you`d want such a session to be with its rush-riddled breakdown that dips deep under the skin with lavish emotional chord changes and peaked atmospherics. A celebration of gay culture, an homage to purist analog-driven proto techno, a statement for what`s shaping up to be yet another exceptional album from the hugely influential International Deejay Gigolos founder, “I Want U” comes complete with two startling remixes: the legend that is The Hacker accentuates the grit and crunchy EBM charm of the original with an all-out exercise in sonic horsepower while Hell`s selector kindred spirit and all-round robot-rustling icon Martin Matiske provides a whirlwind trip back to another foundation era for electronic music with b-boy-busting electro boogie spectacular. Trust us, you`re going to want all three. And thankfully you`ll get all three right here. Let us know what you think!
