Teenage Mutants "Le Voyage"
Teenage Mutants sets sail in a new journey into deep tech, shaping up a mosaic comprising of two original tracks and three collaborations with newcomer Heerhorst.
Palais kicks off proceedings with a revving lead and ascending melody. The journey theme becomes evident from the outset, as the track marches along, gradually building up into an upbeat construction. Dub vibes aplenty come about in Couer, as tribal drums create a heavy-hitting yet pensive start. Anchored in sweeping synths and subtle elements, the percussion remains prominent throughout the cut, making it a great dancefloor weapon.
Concorde, a term near-synonymous with aircrafts, one of three collaboration tracks with newcomer Heerhorst. It swiftly unveils dark and brooding atmospheres. With the help of an initial heavy kick drum doubled by percussive elements and an electricity-tinged lead, it conveys an intense ambiance. A male vocal chanting French lyrics kicks in, ultimately unveiling the reason for the overall morose mood: it’s all centered around love.
Opera is a string-heavy arrangement where distorted loops reign supreme. Yet another slice of melancholy in the form of a moody lead makes its presence, instilling tension and dynamism. Breaking out into an array of synths at peak time, confusion intertwines with darkness, mixing together in the end.
Jour plays upon a parallel sequence of loops, garnering complementary tones in a constant zig-zagging motion. Strobing noises and hellish melodies occupy opposing corners, mediated by a playful bassline.
Biography Township Rebellion
Teenage Mutants revive as a duo.Welcome to this exciting second chapter after 5 years of Christian holding this musical adventure as a solo project. The most important thing now is that the Mainz based guys are back in the game with more enthusiasm and energy than ever before. Keep that!
It’s time to discover and enjoy their new path into a more inspired-techno sound. Hey, don’t panic! Teenage Mutants are of course keeping that remarkable wall of positive vibes. A solid reputation is a solid reputation. The worldwide clubbing scene has surrendered to TM’s haunting grooves, skills and a praiseworthy attitude during all these last years. Talent never falls on deaf ears, for this very reason TM have published great stuff on labels such as Sony Music, Ultra, Suara, Stil Vor Talent, Bunny Tiger, Hedkandi, Incorrect, Click Records, Nervous, Katermukke, Definition Music or Light My Fire. It is on one of these labels, Stil Von Talent, where the duo is preparing an album due to be released at the end of 2017. Before doing that, TM is releasing a good bunch of EPs, “Chapter Two” for example. An unstoppable journey into rolling grooves, foamy synths, bouncing basslines and laid back atmospheres. Perfect stuff for hitting the floor and not only that, but great weapons to once again conquer a pole position on the Beatport Charts. Some time ago, “Hanging On”, collaboration with OFF founder Andre Crom, went straight to #1.
TM also garnered top positions in the charts working alongside respected artists such as Purple Disco Machine, Moonbootica, Laura Welsh, Betoko, Jonas Saalbach, Lars Moston, etc. If we start talking about remixes: Nervo (“The Other Boys” feat. Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears & Nile Rodgers), Autograf (“Metaphysical”), Sailor & I, Third Son (“Alaska”), Niiche, EdOne, Edouard!, Simion, etc.
As a DJ-team, TM has travelled the entire world: from Johannesburg to Moscow, Paris to Hollywood, Miami to Berlin, and Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur… But the duo will be never tired of gigging all over the planet; new gigs in Asia, USA, South America, etc. We will see them touring non-stop.
These two dance-floor-fighters are totally on duty grinding.
Biography Stil vor Talent
Since it was founded in 2006, STIL VOR TALENT has continuously striven to evolve, to enable and further numerous artistic careers. Niconé, Sascha Braemer, KlangKuenstler, Teenage Mutants, HVOB are just a few of many names that inextricably link to the label. Next to commercial success in popular culture, embodied by hits like ‘Hypnotized’ or ‘3 Tage Wach’, STIL VOR TALENT is particularly known for its DIY-attitude, graphic realisation, booking agency, connected fashion label and musical variety, spanning from dreamy house to complex electronica and floor-shaking techno. Apart from EPs, released on a monthly basis and aimed directly at the dance floor, the past years have seen an increased focus on the long-player format. While "10 Years Stil vor Talent presented by Oliver Koletzki" was a recent milestone, artists like Niko Schwind, Kellerkind and HVOB have explored the joys of a longer format with particularly impressive results. This colourful mix of music has obviously created many magic moments at countless parties – one of STIL VOR TALENT’s main driving forces and motivations. Thus, clubs all around the world know: the name STIL VOR TALENT stands for great artists, long nights and quality music. With showcases at Amsterdam's ADE or Barcelona's Sonar, as well as at MELT! Festival or SonneMondSterne, STIL VOR TALENT is a constant presence at electronic music's most influential events.
The country’s capital can obviously not fall short, which is why Berlin is the backdrop to many legendary STIL VOR TALENT nights. After stopping off at several different locations, the label has settled at three of the city’s most loved venues: Watergate, Ritter Butzke, and the beach location Rummelsburg. The latter's bi-annual Stil vor Talent Festival serves as the blueprint for SVT's openair events throughout Germany. Whether it's Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt or Oliver Koletzki's hometown Brunswick – STIL VOR TALENT has become synonymous with high quality outdoor productions, nationwide. A few summers ago, the STIL VOR TALENT headquarters moved to the heart of Kreuzberg, where the SVT Store couples workspace and shop, in order to be more accessible to the fans. Music may inform everything, but STIL VOR TALENT is not just a record label. “It’s a lifestyle choice,” Oliver Koletzki notes with a hint of irony. Hence, sounds lead to skirts and beats to blouses: there’s a fashion output in the form of STIL VOR TALENT FASHION that has several collections under its belt, all designed by young newcomer designers. This year STIL VOR TALENT is going to stay true to its successful roots: there will be LPs by Reinier Zonneveld and Null & Void. Paired with new EP material by Teenage Mutants, Several Definitions and Niko Schwind, as well as lots of unforgettable parties, everyone should get their money’s worth.
