With his German heritage, creative roots in Spain and a resolutely global outlook, HOSH has made a melodic mark in the scene, conjuring countless smiles along the way. The energy of a HOSH set is that of a collapsing star: intense building pressure that explodes in a frenzy of electronic fireworks. Eclectic and rousing, his music firmly grounds your body to the present and skyrockets your mind to space.
