HOMEWORK | CUTTING AGAINST THE GRAIN MIXTAPE
Made To Play/Exploited
After years of hunting for only the freshest and most innovative sounds, these two boys from Amsterdam really found their path when, in 2009, they hooked up with their friends The Heykids ("the kings of the Amsterdam underground scene") to organise what is now considered as one of the most original and revered club nights in Amsterdam: TAFKAF; the first party to present Amsterdam to the 'Midget' sound.
Much of their evolution as artists can be seen in their ever-changing production work. After long and hard work on a varied oeuvre of different material, the boys got catapulted into the International house scene through the release of their widely supported 'Fissa Tune EP' on Shir Khan’s label Exploited, and the accompanying hype surrounding the title track 'Fissa Tune', which, through consistent appraisal from the likes of Brodinski and Jesse Rose, found its way to many a chart and DJ set.
Homework pricked up the ears of ‘Made To Play’ boss Jesse Rose with their Trumpet Express demo whilst he was visiting Amsterdam earlier in the year; a hypnotic trumpet line combined with the duoʼs sampling style and underpinned by beautifully simple, yet pounding house beats.
Now with increasing popularity, and snowballing quality to their productions; Homework are set to achieve great things.
