Oliver Gehrmann and Xaver Hirsch, better known as OUER, will be dropping The First Detour EP through Detroit Swindle’s Heist Recordings on April 4.
For the past couple of months, the label has had back-to-back releases from artists such as Frits Wentink, Fouk, Nachtbraker, and M.ono, not to mention the In reverse EP that the label bosses released back in January.
The Berlin duo have honed their signature approach and “band-inspired jam sessions”, as they put it in their Facebook bio, which is what makes them a tour de force for Chicago house and Detroit techno. With one release on their self-titled label and a handful of tracks and mixes on Soundcloud, they have crafted a 4-track EP that defines OUER to their very skill of fusing the analog and digital world.
They aptly describe their live act so,”OUER is sharing. OUER is Live. OUER is passion. OUER is collaborative. Be a part of OUER.”
You can preview the four tracks below and catch OUER at their EP release party at Farbfernseher in Berlin on April 7. You can preorder The First Detour EP at Juno, Decks, and Clone.
