Haujobb is an international demo group, formed in 1994 and with their main sections in Germany and Finland. Active across all platforms, their world leader is XXX. The group was originally formed as an Amiga group in 1994, and their first release was the intro Peace Love Teddies. It is unclear exactly when this release was made, but it was around the middle of 1994. Black Raven (code) and SMT (music) joined from Infect, and announced their new group with the dentro Artcore in august. Just one day later, Black Raven released Byebye Scenelife, his farewell intro to the scene. Now, this is actually slightly confusing, since he contributed to productions released AFTER this date... though his last recorded code was in october. Perhaps these were pre-coded productions? SMT also contributed to the musicdisk Legalise It 2.5 at the Dooms Day Party 1994 in october, but this was his last production this year. Another Dooms Day Party release, the demo Jammin, announced Jailer as a new member.
SMT moved on to Artwork sometime between june and december of 1995.
French coders Darken and Unborn joined Haujobb in september of 1996, and released their first demo in early november; Harmony. It came with a complete memberlist, listing Dreamer, Fastjack, Darken, Unborn, Dust, Wave, Peachy, Seal, Owl, Jazz, Dascon, Kid Frost, WOTW, Howie Lamour, Noodle, Jailor (sic), Mash, Shawn, Wildthing and Melkor as members.
The text file accompanying the Haujobb 64k intro Awakening in june of 1997 announced Muffler had joined the group from Nah Kolor, that Kenny had joined but was also still in Paragon, and that Fuzzel had joined from Masque. Speedo joined from Tribute some time between june and august, when he contributed to his first production for Haujobb. Marc, Noname and JCS all joined the group from Sector 7 towards the end of the year.
The two graphicians Kidlove and Bay Tremore, both of whom worked on the great My Kingdom demo, left to join Scoopex in early 1998. Nevertheless, this proved to be a great year for Haujobb. At Mekka & Symposium 1998 in april they won the demo competition with Aphrodisiae. As an extra bonus, the demo announced Virgill had joined the group.
Voted #9 most popular group in Fleur 3 (may 1999).
Darkus was one of two main editors of the new Amiga diskmagazine Devotion 1, released under the Nah-Kolor label. The magazine also announced the group had been joined by Visualize (gfx) and Reptile (music). Optima joined from Scoopex two weeks before The Party 2000 in december, and his first production for Haujobb was the winner demo Megademo 2000.
Marc's audio cd "Basic Needs" was released early in the year, with cover art by JCS. Dutch writer Sane (previously worked for Seenpoint under Scoopex) decided to reenter the scene, working on Devotion! Nah Kolor announced the death of "Devotion" after a single issue, but Haujobb wanted it otherwise... Devotion 2 was released in june, with the bulk of articles for Devotion #2 was written by Sane and Wade, with some support from Ghandy and Fishwave.
