Helena Hauff has confirmed her new album, 'Qualm', will be released on 3rd August through Ninja Tune.
We first reported on news of an email between the Hamburg-based producer and DJ and the label last week, in which she described the work as 'raw', since going on to state via press release that her intention is to "create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers". It's her first album since 2015's 'Discreet Desires'.
'Qualm', which means smoke fume in German or a feeling of unease in English, and 'No Qualms' are the first samples from the forthcoming full length— take a listen to both below, and don't be too surprised to hear more during her set at Berlin's Atonal this year.
