So who are Homework?

Homework

Homework consists of Zip, the rebel without a cause, and Tom, the dandy from beyond time.

Your ‘Pleister’ just went out on Dirt Crew’s Deep Love 15 VA, tell us about the track?

Homework

In their recent Comp Of The Month review DJ Mag called it a ‘jazzual groover’. That’s pretty spot on (hopefully). It’s a very dirty, muddy track. Built around a dizzying percussion sample, the rhodes, wurlitzers and arp pours trickle it. We wanted to go for an amalgam between the analog vibes of our latest EP on Let’s Play House and the warm, groovy material we released on Wolf Music.

And how did it feel getting the call from Dirt Crew?

Homework

We had been in talks with Dirt Crew for a long, long time. It just never really panned out. Sometimes their schedule was full or we didn’t have the right material. But it was clear that some day we’d make it happen. That day seems to have arrived now. Really happy we can work with this respected imprint!

Is there a favourite on the album that you can’t stop rinsing?

Homework

Oh man, this might sound like an evasive, politically incorrect answer, but it’s just too hard to pick one. The strength of this compilation is that there are so many good, yet different tracks on it and still the entire thing feels like a whole. There’s a wonderful consistency on the record, both in quality and in sound. It shows you that Dirt Crew really knows how to select and where to get those special ones.

What’s the coolest thing in your house?

Homework

An extensive collection of butterflies and cactuses. And a lot of strange stuff we picked up while touring in Asia…

What’s the future hold for Homework?

Homework

We’re working on a lot of new material at the moment so it’s just a matter of time till a couple of new EP’s from us will hit. We’ve always had a bit of a curse when it comes to releases. Scheduling conflicts or pressing plants slowing down the process. Hopefully we can finally get rid of that curse and start releasing in a more consistent way.

Anything to add?

Homework

Go watch Rick and Morty. You might feel to old for cartoons, but this one is not for kids and it will certainly blow your mind!
