Helena Hauff is among the elite league of DJs welcomed into Apple Music’s Beats 1 Residency program for 2017, placing her alongside influencers such as Kölsch, Eats Everything, and deadmau5. Taking note of the Werkdiscs label regular’s broadcast mixing prowess, BBC Radio 1 recruited Hauff to provide the final Essential Mix of February.

The Essential Mix has had it’s share of transcendent and club-germane techno in 2017, with stellar outputs already from the likes of Adriatique and Pan-Pot. Helena Hauff, however, has disrupted this trend by dedicating much of her mix to techno’s harder, more driving edge. Over the course of her two-hour set, Hauff blends distorted, industrial techno with metallic electro, erratic breaks, and tinges of acid house and EBM.

Drawing from the likes of The Hacker and Dark Vektor, the German DJ puts forth a raw, cerebral endeavor that would please Boys Noize even in his most discerning mood.
