Double LP version. The impetuous passion of a freaked out marching band finds its new order in the intricacy of electronic music production. Two years after their inception on Hamburg's Schulterblatt street, the self-styled techno marching band Meute release its long-awaited debut album Tumult. A video of their first guerilla gig has won the band more than 60,000 Facebook fans up to now and catapulted them to the top of the list of the most booked festival bands in Europe. Between what now amount to 150 gigs (Lollapalooza, MS Dockville, Trans Musicales, Dour, Ozora, Paléo, YEAH!, Fusion etc.) the musicians have still found time to go into the studio and record their combination of hypnotically rhythmic techno and expressive brass music. The 2016 tracks already released provide a taster of the style of the album. "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."
