Ninetynine' was a record they made for themselves which they then doubled down on by giving it it's own remix album. An outing which saw Dejan doing a pair of mixes on his own while Architect and S'Apex provided ones for Daniel. Many other luminaries of the time jumped at the chance to revise these already challenging tracks: For a Space, Red Sparrow and Photic Sonar to name a few but I'm sure many others flat out refused. The 9 tracks consist of either instrumentals, female voice lyrics or male voice lyrics. They get mixed up and create a solid hour of music.

The further we watch haujobb's discography unfold, the more evident this album's brilliance becomes. It rejected all norms and propelled the genre forward by years. Since 2001's "Polarity", haujobb have relinquished the role of pioneers, falling back to what's easy, what sells a few thousand records a year, and what dodges fan criticism. ninetynine was not what people wanted, but it's what the genre needed. Is it really fifteen years. Much as I and a lot of others don't want to admit to this, that's how long it has been since Haujobb altered the musical landscape with 'Ninetynine'.

The remixes from that album, Ninety-nine Remixes, was released in late 1999. The long awaited return of the architects of sound, Haujobb has finally occurred. Polarity marks the end of a two year hiatus for Haujobb, who take this release to the edge of electronic extremes and beyond. Quite possibly their best album ever, Polarity is packed with electro break beats, ambient structures, and tweaked intricacies that deliver a wide spectrum of sound to fill the quietest void or largest chasm. Almost two years after the release of the album Vertical Theory, Haujobb returned with an album of remixed and reinvented tracks. Highly sought after for their legendary remixes, Haujobb now has the favor returned to them by their friends including well known acts such as Glis, Seabound, and This Morn’ Omina. In addition, Vertical Mixes contained two new tracks and mixes from Haujobb themselves.

This is the remix follow-up to "Ninety-Nine", in the tradition of Haujobb's on which other respected artists are invited to have a go with the originals. Technically this album is sheer genius. I hear sounds I've never heard before and unfortunately most of this album will be lost on lo-fi systems.

Haujobb is Daniel Myer (Architect, Destroid, Covenant) and Dejan Samardzic (Dots + Dashes). Albums such as ‘Freeze Frame Reality‘, ‘Solutions For A Small Planet‘, ‘Ninety-nine‘, and ‘Polarity‘ are considered classic works

Most artists in industrial music were hacks, angry white boys with samplers. You know them as Front Line Assembly, Wumpscut, Numb, etc. Interesting? Yes. Art? Not even close.There were a few -- Lassigue Bendthaus, haujobb, Covenant (at their peak) -- who were talented beyond the confines of the genre, and who, had they chosen a more commercial scene to operate within, could have become household names. Actual artists with vision. In 1999, when the genre was again homogenizing around EBM, haujobb blew it up as good artists feel a responsibility to do.The further we watch haujobb's discography unfold, the more evident this album's brilliance becomes. It rejected all norms and propelled the genre forward by years. Since 2001's "Polarity", haujobb have relinquished the role of pioneers, falling back to what's easy, what sells a few thousand records a year, and what dodges fan criticism.ninetynine was not what people wanted, but it's what the genre needed. It remains polarizing almost two decades later because it continues to discomfort those with expectations and assumptions of how things *should* sound. It is a classic album that destroys expectations to achieve a pureness of integrity and uniqueness that is desperately uncommon in electronic music. Today, it sounds just as good, if not better in the face of overly commercial dance music.

Spot on. Download's 'III' was similar in its effect. As someone well into what SP and Download were making previously, I found 'III', as well as '99' to be revelatory and was genuinely excited that these guys were listening to Autechre and Aphex and the like. Something needed to change. Unfortunately, that change didn't reach beyond the aformentioned albums. '99 remains a classic in a canon in flux - something in between but wholly relevant.

Who are YOU to determine what's art, beyond YOUR own opinion lol? It's inaccurate to say "99 is what the genre needed." 99 is NOT the same genre as ANY of its predecessors. That's why it wasn't well received. Haujobb went from Electro-Industrial(Homes & Gardens), to EBM(FFR), to a techno/IDM infused EBM/future-pop precursor (SFASP). And This(99) takes that, and puts it into the downtempo/minimalist category. I'll agree, this is NOT what people wanted and expected (nor was SFASP). I'll also agree it's what the Rivethead crowd needed back then(myself included) to be exposed to to expand their horizons beyond simple dance electro-industrial/EBM. BUT, Haujobb made some poor decisions on how to expose people to this stuff. Myer & Co. had a plethora of side projects at the time, they really should have used a different moniker and labels to release this stuff. It would have been better received.

Is it really fifteen years. Much as I and a lot of others don't want to admit to this, that's how long it has been since Haujobb altered the musical landscape with 'Ninetynine'. This wasn't a gentle, gradual re-shaping of things either; a more violent break from what had come before I can't think of. Hints were offered on the record which Myer and Tehanu (of Forma Tadre) put out as NEWT in 1997 but no one had the vaguest inkling this was coming. For two years we'd been getting reports about the follow up to 'Solutions For a Small Planet', apparently the band were hard at work on it but there was no further information about it beyond a vague "in progress". After the incredible shift in style we'd had with their remix album 'Matrix', the smugger ones amongst us projected a further push into drum 'n' bass. Having heard some of their side projects of that time I couldn't agree. They'd ironed out the styles played with on 'Solutions...' via S'Apex, Dots & Dashes, Architect and Myer's own solo singles. So where next, boys? Where next.We got our answer in the spring when the single 'Less' appeared. Stripped back arrangements, lowered tempo and what was this? Someone named Vanessa was singing. Well I can tell you how much this one was played by the fans: it wasn't. Amongst the old guard there were the beginnings of anger, they'd barely tolerated the breaks of 'Solutions...' and for many of them this proved the final straw. I began to hear a lot of grumbling, more than a few parties degenerated into two separate camps: those who embraced this change and the ones who had had enough. If this was just the opening chapter of the band's new era then what would the rest of the book contain? There were, and are, quite a few who never even bothered to find out. You can still hear them even now, lamenting that things just wouldn't stay in 1995 forever. On message boards, in emails and chat rooms the internet over the snide dismissals continue to this day.If there is one thing which 'Ninetynine' taught me as a listener it was to never ever take Haujobb for granted. In the summer when it was at last in my hands, a friend of mine and I went back to my apartment to give it a spin. The look on both our faces by the time it was through did not resemble what they'd been an hour or so earlier. This was not the record so many had been anticipating, for one thing it didn't even have the same name which has become a favorite theoretical topic for Haujobb fans: what ever did become of 'Cut Copy Cycle'. To return to a previous point about public perceptions and the credibility of blinded men: 'Ninetynine' just about did them in. In the history of backlashes against new and challenging artistic works, this pair place high on the list. Fan sites were shuttered, club playlists began omitting Haujobb, so-called friends of mine threw out their entire collection; there was no end to the ridicule, rejection and outright hostility directed at them for having dared to have done this. Bear in mind, the late 90s was where the seeds of the foul genre of "future pop" were sown. After years of toiling in the underground, bands suddenly realized that if they would only compromise their principles and address adolescent lyrical topics then they, too, could earn the adoration of the masses and feast on whatever scraps NIN had let fall from his table.And so it began, the endless remixes and coattail riding theatrics of the day; but from within their sturdy fortress of magnificent atmospheres and icy terrain Haujobb said little. It's all too easy to let 'Ninetynine' gather dust on your shelf, but don't be tempted. As I've said before, this era taught me never to take them for granted and here's why: in interviews of the time you can see that all the desertions surprised them, Daniel Myer estimated that the record cost them 3/4 of their fan base. He went on to state further "most were not willing to take these rhythmic adventures with us" and that's quite true. Most weren't. I'd play this and watch the expectations and expressions crumble, Haujobb hadn't made a record but a movie. It sounded sparse coming out of the speakers but through headphones there was no end to what was going on.The individual sound was king here, how much could be wrung out of it became the goal.This was an experiment in dub, techno and jazz. Not the sort of things the crowd were prone to liking or even admit to owning but Haujobb went ahead and did it anyway. 'Ninetynine' was a record they made for themselves which they then doubled down on by giving it it's own remix album. An outing which saw Dejan doing a pair of mixes on his own while Architect and S'Apex provided ones for Daniel. Many other luminaries of the time jumped at the chance to revise these already challenging tracks: For a Space, Red Sparrow and Photic Sonar to name a few but I'm sure many others flat out refused. Kind of par for the course, I suppose, no one wants it too innovative just enough to look the part. Those magazines won't just sell themselves.Most surprisingly, this period of the band's history has become something of an apologist's field day. Many who shunned them then now recant, the truly impressive ones, however, merely modify their stance with what I hear time and again these days: they should have done this under another name. But they didn't, and bless them for that, they would not bend or break. Their recent album 'New World March' carried on in spirit with 'Ninetynine' and while it didn't get as far out there it clearly shows that the will to do so remains. All we must do now is wait, you can rest assured it will come around again and when it does it won't be anything anyone could ever have expected.

Polarity was absolutely an apology and you're quite right in stating it didn't feel like any kind of development. Perhaps this is why there was neither a single or remix album to accompany it; they probably just wanted to get it over with. Ninetynine is definitely a peak, -it isn't for everyone- to term it challenging is an understatement. I think they're on course to exceed it, personally. Now that all of this pop-dustrial has been shown for what it is, the balance is being restored.

Very accurate history lesson. I never wrote them off myself, but this (much more than SFASP) took some time away, and a revisit with a much more open mind, to fully appreciate. Now, in some ways, I like this more than the follow up Polarity (GASP!, LOL). I guess because Polarity is the first album Haujobb did that didn't feel like a new development of their sound. It felt like more of an apology album to everyone who said WTF to 99. But to me, Polarity sounded like SFASP part 2 (but, except for a couple of tracks, not nearly as good). It also didn't help that all the main tracks from Polarity found their way to P2P networks before the actual release date. (I know somebody(s) had to have been really pissed about that leak

Ninetynine is a classic in the minimal electronica world. While the rest of Haujobb's catelog is bouncy EBM/industrial, Ninetynine is a quiet, relaxing album. The 9 tracks consist of either instrumentals, female voice lyrics or male voice lyrics. They get mixed up and create a solid hour of music. The drum beat in Doubleyou is one of the most memorable sounds i've ever heard in a CD. If you're a fan of quiet electronic music, this may be worth checking out.

A very interesting release. First off, let me start by mentioning that i'm not exactly a Haujobb fan. I've heard the other albums, and this one is by far different. To me, all of Haujobb's work is pretty boring EBM with annoying lyrics. Infact, Daniel Myer's other projects don't really interest me either. But Ninetynine.. is the exception. This album is truly a classic. 9 tracks that consist of minimal beats and sounds. Everything is cool, calm and quiet. Some tracks have Daniel speaking a few words, and some have a guest female vocalist, Vanessa Briggs, singing. This is Daniel's masterpiece in my view. If he ever releases something like this again, i'll definitely be getting it.

When I first got this CD I hated it with a passion. Of course after hearing such a great work as Solutions For A Small Planet, I of course expected more of the same hypnotic drum n bass-ey EBM. I also hadnt truly opened my mind to other styles of electronic music at that point. It has been literally years since I have heard this album and upon hearing it again for the first time since it came out, I have a newfound appreciation for it. Admittedly, Daniel Meyer should have released this under a different moniker than Haujobb, but nonetheless this is actually an excellent release. Very fluid and relaxing, yet will make you twitch and move your shoulders e'er so slightly. I must say that the only downfall to this release is the addition of the female vocals-they only serve to water the music down in my humble opinion. Overall a wonderful little gem, just stick to the non-Vanessa Briggs tracks and you'll do just fine.
