Info 

Julius Steinhoff is far from being a stranger in the ever-expanding universe of deep house. As a Co-Founder and one of the steersmen behind Hamburg's Smallville empire (record store and label/ party curator around the globe), half of the dynamic duo Smallpeople as well as a producer and DJ in his own right, Steinhoff is closely associated with a group of like-minded people that unite fresh ideas and individualism with a certain sense of tradition.
That “Flocking Behaviour” was well embodied in Steinhoff's debut album by the same name, released in 2014. After a string of 12-inches and tracks for the likes of Live at Robert Johnson, Geography, White, Mule or his own Smallville brand, the very well-received Smallpeople long-player “Salty Days” and EPs on Running Back, Underground Quality as well as remixes for MCDE and others, Julius Steinhoff made a submission that was all his.

"Flocking Behaviour" is rooted in the elegiac variety of the big three (New York, Chicago & Detroit) and paints a romantic picture of house music that is at times utopian. It was one man's love letter to his musical passion. Julius' DJ-Sets are focused on a range between Deep House and Techno- always within the balance of atmospheric warmth and club suitability.

"Steinhoff invites us to imagine a new time for togetherness and perceive things from a different perspective: managing to petrify past, future and present of house music in one time to experiment, invoking our earthly joys as ‘the creatures of a moment’ as Rousseau once wrote. With this record, Steinhoff raises the bar and delivers one of the benchmark album releases of the year."

Smallville Records co-founder Julius Steinhoff will release his debut album, 'Flocking Behaviour', in July.

Steinhoff helped launch the Smallville record shop in Hamburg in 2005. Since then he's overseen Smallville's evolution into a celebrated record label (they also opened a second shop, in Paris, in 2007). To date he's released solo EPs on his own label as well as Live At Robert Johnson, White and Geography Records, becoming synonymous with subtle, considered deep house along the way. He's also one half of Smallpeople alongside Just Von Ahlefeld—the pair released an album called 'Salty Days' in 2012.

A press release written by Gerd Janson says 'Flocking Behaviour' is "rooted in the elegiac variety of the big three (New York, Chicago & Detroit) and a romantic concept of house music that is at times utopian." Janson adds that the album amounts to "one man's love letter to his musical passion."

The record will see release on double-vinyl, CD and digital formats. The CD version comes with a 12-page booklet by Stefan Marx, the artist behind Smallville's iconic sleeves.

You can listen to a 17-minute long sampler for 'Flocking Behaviour' on SoundCloud.
