Andhim: "We never said we had to become super DJ stars. We just did what we wanted"

Germany's Andhim (due this Friday, January 24, at Bar Standard) display a humility not often seen in the DJ world. Full grace and gratitude, the duo of Simon Haehnel and Tobias Müller create house music that's made "to uplift." They call it "superhouse," and although it's not new to the underground scene, it's being propelled to the top of the charts with help from acts like Andhim. We recently spoke with Haehnel about touring in the State, the idea of "superhouse" and growing up with hip-hop influences.
