About original release "Hi-Hat Club Vol.6":
DJ Adlib is bringing the Hi-Hat Club back to Cologne. "Haus & Garten" is the sixth installment of our producer series and were taking things to the next level with this one. Not only because Adlib has choosen to share the spotlight with Black Spade, Declaime, Frank Nitt and Planet Asia but simply enough for the music the turntablist turned producer has cooked up in his "Haus & Garten"("House & Garden"). Since 1999, Adlib has been a member of the Noisy Stylus crew, who won trailorloads of turntablist competitions and released their fully scratches album "Table Manners" in 2005. As a producer, Adlib dropped his first solo effort (Adlibertine EP) under UK's exotica drum & bass pioneer Danny Breaks' own imprint Alphabet Zoo. Ever since Adlib has laced production for various hip hop outfits including Stones Throw's MED and Rawkus' Dynas. By no means a beat tape "Haus & Garten" is a complete album by one of Europe's most complete hip-hop producers. One could cite influences ranging from early electronic to prog, from miami to UK bass and still wouldn't do justice. Give it a listen and you'll know what we mean... MC's aside, the album also features Colognes beatsmith Hubert Daviz and long-time Fat Freddy's Drop side-kick Adi Dick. Mixed & mastered by engineer extraordinaire Erik Breuer at Brewery Studios Cologne. Cover photos by Robert Winter.
