"Hagedorn is Wolfgang Hagedorn without Digital Jockey, i.e. outside his Computerjockeys' context. Wolfgang Hagedorn's musical background in terms of important influences stretches from Eastcoast HipHop to Jeff Mills and has lead him to combine rational and soulful elements, resulting in a mixture of abstract functionality and the simple challenge to move your body. Even though he digs deep into the various genres of his record collection to find the right little bits n' pieces for his way of sampling, the tracks remain surprisingly homogeneous and stick to the sound idea originally intended. Hagedorn's music offers a kind of synthesis between distant listening and raving affirmation. Homegrown is somewhat less club-orientated than its predecessor, an aspect that may have to do with the fact that Wolfgang has been on a sort of paternity leave for more than a year now. This doesn't necessarily mean, though, that Homegrown is meant to be exclusively for home listening. There are still quite a few dancefloor tracks that would fit without doubt into a club context, namely the 12" opener 'Funk Infection' which easily bears comparison with Thomas Brinkmann's hot SoulCenter stuff. Hagedorn's new album is really quite diverse, the range of his sound is definitely spread more widely this time. He himself suggests that he could have developed a number of different concept albums out of each single track -- very ambitious words, these, but oh so true."
