Name: Hendrik Joerges
The Spoken Word
In a time when niche specificity has trumped over all, Hendrik as a monarch to his own imagination has stood tall. A humble KZN export with a very unique palate and profile is still far away from his peak to come and has been putting out some really versatile and edgy content as a producer. Hendrik Joerges is ultimately the new-age electronic push we will come to appreciate in the years to come and holds the possibility of becoming recognized in the most unexpected fields. Alongside the likes of artists like Syzo & Max Hurrel, Hendrik is going to become the household name we deserve and the rest of SA sees it too. We cant wait to see this journey first hand!
1) Describe Yourself In Three Words
Hendrik: Spontaneous, Diverse, Driven.
2) Your Fave Release Of All Time
Hendrik: I’d have to say, even now still, Porter Robinson’s “Divinity”.
3) Artist To Watch Out For?
Hendrik: There are far too many to mention. Locally, I’d say my top picks would be Jon Casey and Max Hurrell. They are making major international moves!
4) Advice For The Dreamers, Trendsetters & Up N’ Comers Out There?
Hendrik: Never stop. It is hard to foresee when your ‘big break’ moment will be, so if you decide to give up, you might be a millimeter away from the thing that will change it all. You’ll never know unless you persevere.
5) What does you have going on currently? What can we look forward to?
Hendrik: I’m currently working on a whole lot of stuff. I’m working on many songs where I’m producing behind the scenes, but also many under my own brand. I’m beginning to incorporate my own lyrics into my songs, and my first vocal release is coming out on an international label later on this year. I am also finishing off remixes for No Method, New Volume, and I just released my brand new remix of Haezer’s track “Brisket for my Valentine” Which was released on Mähtrasher records in Germany.
