DHA & The Boom Room Present: Homework – ‘The Farewell Selection’
Photo credits: Timo Steenvoorden Photography
Last month, Amsterdam DJ/producer duo Homework, an act that we have held dear for the last few years, announced that they had decided to split up and go their separate ways, to fully focus on their solo careers. But in proper Homework fashion, the boys aren’t going out with anything less than a bang. So for the occasion they have put together a special mix that rounds up their rollercoaster career, which spans a full decade now. The mix features solely original material by Homework – see it as a trip down memory lane.
To sum up their experiences of the last ten years we’re letting Tom and Zip do the talking:
“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”
Today we have to bring you some sad news. After ten amazing years together we have decided to stop. As of next year Homework will be no more. It’s been one heck of a rollercoaster with releases on some top labels, shows in awesome clubs like Berghain/PanoramaBar, ageHa, Studio 80, Le Bain at The Standard, High Line (just to name a few) and adventurous tours through Europe, Australia, Asia and USA. We sincerely thank you for all your support through the years. Our fans and friends, the promoters, our agents, fellow artists, you have all been so great to us! You didn’t make this an easy decision to make.
Homework may cease to exist, but we are alive and kicking and will be pursuing music careers as solo artists. Tom continuing as Tom Waist. Zip working on his Zip Løi project. We both hope you will continue to follow our work, because we are very excited about what the future will bring. We leave this project with a lot of positive energy and are actually still available for bookings until February next year. If you want to have us over for one last time do get in touch with our agent(s).
Lots of love and see you around the bend,
Tom & Zip
Wishing you all the best on your future musical endeavours gents!
