The impetuous passion of a freaked out marching band finds its new order in the intricacy of electronic music production. Coming from Hamburg’s Schulterblatt street the self-styled techno marching band MEUTE have been catapulted to the top of the list of the most booked festival bands in Europe thanks to their combination of hypnotically rhythmic techno and expressive brass music.
"The techno genre is all grown up now. It’s time to acknowledge that with new interpretations and show a different side. Like classical music or jazz“, according to Thomas Burhorn, trumpeter and founder of MEUTE. “In my view techno is in any case descended from the marching band tradition. So we are taking electronic music back to its roots. And then if one day there’s no more electricity we’ll still be able to throw a techno party."
