Berlin house mainstay Thabo launches his new label Home Again with a dynamic four-track EP. A natural extension of Thabo’s creative vision, the label comes four years after the start of the Home Again event series – a concept embodying his ‘ideal’ house party.
With previous bookings including Borrowed Identity, Sweely, Sally C, Meggy, Eli Escobar and Adryiano, all of whom played alongside Thabo at venues Watergate, Prince Charles and IPSE, the Home Again events quickly became a meeting point for Berlin’s house heads and music enthusiasts.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic putting the party on hold, it has allowed Thabo to pause and re-examine the event’s primary sound, further developing the concept to kick off a record label. Designed as a collective of like-minded artists, the label’s roster includes Home Again party regulars Thalo Santana, Sandilé, Meggy and Szafran, alongside the label boss himself.
In addition, Home Again will be dedicated to club-ready music, ranging from house to breakbeat and beyond, with a focus on exploring the sounds of Berlin’s burgeoning house scene.
“I started Home Again as my version of the perfect house party. My favourite artists in my favourite clubs and all my favourite people around. I think this is the reason this project is so special to me and I wanted to make it more then (just) a party, especially in these times in which we cannot promote events. When you take the setting and people away, what remains is the music. The idea to start a label existed for quite some time, but actually this challenging pandemic gave us the time to sit down and start what has been in our heads for so long” –THABO
Channeling original Berlin house scene vibes, Home Again’s inaugural release is a dynamic take on sunny house, reminiscent of the carefree pre-pandemic dance marathons.
The release features three originals from Thabo and a remix from Australian house stalwart Subjoi. All four tracks remain true to the Home Again aesthetic, offering a slice of the Berlin house music hedonism that gives us much needed optimism and ethereal bliss in these strange times.
