new record out

Dear everyone, liebe Leute!

you may have heard of this via Shameless. I still wanted to take this opportunity and  shamelessly crosspost letting you know that I released a solo record called CLARK. If you feel like some new 180 gram vinyl in super beautiful packaging by Shameless design director Julian Gosper please swing over to www.shamelessrecords.rocks/records/clark and buy a copy. we’re selling it for 18e and are offering flat rate shipping worldwide for 4e. you get aiff and mp3 downloads with the vinyl.
The music was composed in 2005 and released as CDR on the UK label Sijis. We edited the tracks a little for the 2017 Shamless LP re-issue. Todd Carter who mastered the tracks originally in 2005 did an amazing job remastering the whole thing for vinyl.
I want to say a big thanks to all the writers, magazines and radiohosts who have given us so much love in the past months: Radio Nacional de España, Frans de Waard (Vital Weekly), Stuart Bruce (Chain D.L.K.), Riccardo Gorone (Carnage News), Roberto Mandolini (Rockerilla), Roland Torres (Silence and Sound), Robin Tomens (Include Me Out), Digital in Berlin, Acik radio in Istanbul, BBC, Eldoradio, ORF, Radio Libertaire, Radio Z, Radio Slovenija, The Parish News, Radio Fro.
Thanks also to OYE Records in Berlin for carrying the wax.
Interested folk in Chicago, please contact me. I have a private stash waiting there for you.
Patrick Pagel shot beautiful photos of the cover and Thomas Binder-Reisinger made an amazing video. You can find all that on www.shamelessrecords.rocks
thanks for your time,
Boris

REVIEWS:
“CLARK is full of semi-structured dangers, disco howls, cyborg jockeys and fusions of tiny percussion parts.”
Radio Nacional de España
“the re-issue on vinyl makes a lot of sense. It has a great quality and doesn’t sound dated at all, unlike some of the computer music that appeared a few years before that, the technoid music of Hauf still sounds remarkable fresh; to me it seems like a wise decision to re-issue this.”
Vital Weekly 1069 / Frans de Waard (2017)
“‘Clark’ is perhaps as far removed from techno as it’s possible to be whilst still being able to justify labelling it as techno, which I will, but this is an extremely deep, insular journey that benefits from focussed headphone listening. Releases like this have been appearing more frequently lately but for a 2005 release this was well ahead of the curve and its release is certainly justified.”
Chain D.L.K. / Stuart Bruce
“The Syncopated Molecules in Microwave Meals will Finally Understand”
Carnage News / Riccardo Gorone
“dry and cutting edge electronics, post-industrial techno and minimal”
Rockerilla / Roberto Mandolini 
“Clark makes wonderful use of intelligence and sensations. It’s a majestic EP of conciseness and relevance, combining the multiple facets of today’s music to propel them towards a future with exciting modulations.”
Silence and Sound / Roland Torres
“Clark is rising in my estimation with every play”
Include Me Out / Robin Tomens 
“post industrial minimal music”
Digital in Berlin / piradio 
“Minimal and elegant electronic music for Boris Hauf, everything is quasi essential during the listening. The sound choice is accurate and the mastering done by Todd Carter in Chicago pushes everything at the right place.”
Chain DLK / Andrea Ferraris (2005)
“a fine bunch of microsounding glitch ambient or whatever you call it, […] here on ‘Clark’ he comes up with something that sidesteps that: his own version of techno music. Stripped bare of all unnecessary elements, adding his own sometimes creepy sounds,”
Vital Weekly / Frans de Waard (2005)
“Fragments of techno juxtaposed with modernist contemporary experimentation make it liable to pique the interest of many an electronic music connoisseur.”
Furthernosie / Alex Young
 (2005)
