Biography

Germany (1993 – present)

Haujobb formed as a trio in 1993 in Germany, with B. Junemann being the third member to the current duo of Dejan and Daniel. Their first release was on cassette only, the now hopelessly out of print Drift Wheeler. This embryonic issue brought them to the attention of Off Beat records, who released their first CD, Homes and Gardens, later that same year. Haujobb’s first German tour occurred in 1994, along with the American release of Homes and Gardens and their first single, Eye Over You. They often use samples from the ALIEN Movie series.

Haujobb began distributing their music in North America via Pendragon Records.

1995 saw the departure of band mate Björn, and the lineup has consisted of Daniel and Dejan ever since. After Metropolis Records acquired Pendragon, the two musicians have been able to spread their music to a larger fanbase in North America, and have remained continuously popular in the European industrial music scene.

Over the course of their subsequent releases in the 1990s, they wove increasing amounts of drum’n’bass and IDM influence into their sound. 1999’s ‘NinetyNine’ was a sparse, downtempo collection of ambient electronic compositions. They have since reintroduced some of the more rhythmic elements back into their sound on their more recent albums, but have continued to experiment, drawing concepts from a wide variety of musical styles.

Haujobb stated that they were ending their musical career with a final concert at Amphi Festival (Cologne) 19/07/2008, although a recent blog post (dated May 22 2009) suggests that this is no longer the case and that the band is simply taking a break from music.

    I don't even like the remixes. Dead Market is alright but the rest of New World March is boring.

    Haujobb keeps sucking since Dead Market was released. The first version of Letting the Demons Sleep I saved my hope for another vertical stuff. No. This new "sound" reminds me experiments with a soviet synth. And now listening to We Must Wait, I'm completely dazed. That awful sample and vocal Richard Gotainer alike. Daniel, wake up! Return pitch black samples!

    To Bloodwerk: I could be to recommend you their last album "New World March" for best understanding the last points of their style development. However, such their early work, as "Solutions for a small planet", can give you the imagination of their first music style positions.

    Haujobb has a special music language.."endzeit" atmosphere and post-industrial music structures. Their music is mix of high-tech IDM and soft EBM&synth styles..It's a way to apocalyptic or other galactical worlds...It's very clever, intellectual, brain music for modern world.

    Futurepop? Not so much. MKDELTA is right, Vertical Theory had much more futurepop elements. NWM obviously lacks of progressing melodies to be called futurepop. Personally I've found more darkwave influences than futurepop's on New World March.
