By honing a uniquely catchy and inspired sound, the past years have seen the German techno duo Teenage Mutants tirelessly forge their place on the map of outstanding, timeless electronic music hailing from the heart of Europe.
At the very core of Teenage Mutants’ mission lays one simple goal: to spread their remarkably feel-good, energy-driven style of techno to a global audience. And, by now, their reputation speaks for itself: the scene has long been enamoured with the authentic pair from Mainz, as they refreshingly let their skills do the talking, both in the booth and in the studio. Releases on a diverse set of labels such as Sony Music, Ultra, Stil vor Talent, Suara, Octopus, Hed Kandi, Kitball, Click Records or Katermukke are evidence of Teenage Mutants’ versatility and impact. While an album for Stil vor Talent is in the pipeline, the boys wisely take their time with and good care of each project they embark on. In the meantime, they won’t leave you hanging, thanks to brilliant EPs like their recent deep-tech journey ‘Le Voyage’ on Stil vor Talent or the giant rave anthems ‘Kratos’ (with Heerhost) and ‘Nola’ (with Sezer Uysal) on Sian’s Octopus Recordings.
In short: perfect stuff for the floor. A fact clearly reflected in Teenage Mutants’ presence in the charts of leading music platforms such as Beatport. Here, the duo scored a first big break with ‘Hanging On’, produced in collaboration with Andre Crom back in 2012: without hesitation the track went straight to #1 in the overall charts. Since then, Teenage Mutants have collaborated with an impressive collection of respected artists – Purple Disco Machine, Moonbootica, Laura Welsh, Betoko and Jonas Saalbach are just a few of the names they have shared a studio with, while remixes for Nervo feat. Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears & Nile Rogers, Autograf, Sailor & I, Third Son or Ed One further shows just how extensive their network is.
Naturally, Teenage Mutants’ endless passion for electronic music translates to their DJ-performances. Next to a former residency at La Terrrazza in Barcelona and the current night Verboten in their hometown Mainz, the guys are a regular fixture at key clubs and festivals on the underground circuit, performing multiple gigs a week all over the world. In recent years Teenage Mutants have thus travelled from Johannesburg to Moscow, Paris to Hollywood, Miami to Berlin, Rome to São Paulo or Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur. No journey is ever too far to spread the word.
They are named after superheroes, after all.
