Housemeister started releasing records in 2001 on BPitch Control where Karl Lagerfeld once took a track from his 1st record ever for his Lagerfeld compilation CD.

Never caring about style or trends, he always does what he wants bringing his very own interpretation of Techno with him. His gigs still have a 90’s ghetto vibe, with as much energy as a punk band, sometimes softer, sometimes harder always creating his own vibe.

Back in the days, he even played live shows only with a PlayStation portable and a Kaosspad. The OP-1 project-album (2014) on BNR was produced in transit, in hotels & plane, using only one instrument. This album inspired Matthew Herbert to became a fan and include a Housemeister remix on the 2018 release of his Accidental JNR record.
