If one element of Daniel Oskar Offermann’s background in hip-hop shines through in his career as house producer and label owner, it’s that genre’s relentless hustle. In 2007 he founded the cheekily named, graphically focused White label as a hub for his own productions, as well those by his friends including Edward, Nu, Martin Zadak, and Tristen. A second label followed in 2011, Rimini, which puts a premium on being vinyl-only and has offered eccentric edits from a varied crowd. But it was his tracks with an old Frankfurt pal, Moomin, that really caught our attention: Hardmood/Joe MacDaddy launched the Aim imprint in spectacular fashion and landed in our top 25 tracks of 2010. Its follow-up, “Nasty Nate,” further refined their restrained, sample-led sound to include traces of soul and was a highlight of the first Aim compilation. He’s provided us with our 98th exclusive podcast, an hour of deeply groove-focused house music with some unexpected treats along the way.
