Lost On Earth


Gebrüder Teichmann's third album, Lost On Earth, merges transcultural collaborations and electronic music between 90 and 130bpm. The album was recorded in a multitude of cities and countries including Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Nigeria, Kenya, and Germany and features guest artists Abe Duque (NYC), MC Psychotek (Bulawayo), Wura Samba (Lagos), Santiago Rodrigues and Signal Deluxe (Mexico City), Sasha Perera (Berlin), Max Turner (Noland) and the Kibera based art collective Maasai Mbili. Crafted by jams and recording sessions round the globe, Lost On Earth captures the essence of a rough, pure, and direct mix, highlighting club, hip-hop, African influenced, and deep tracks. Brothers Andi and Hannes Teichmann, aka Gebrüder Teichmann, are electronic musicians, DJs, and cultural activists, and have been rooted in Berlin's techno underground and DIY-culture since the late nineties. The duo have performed at Berlin's premiere clubs including Berghain/Panorama Bar, WMF, Watergate, Bar25, and have hosted regular nights at Suicide Circus Berlin since 2009. Over the years the brothers have collaborated with numerous artists across a variety of genres. Collaborations have included hip hop, contemporary, traditional, and experimental music with collaborators including Ensemble Modern, Decoder Ensemble, Embryo, Joachim Irmler and Gudrun Gut, Foremost Poets, rRoxymore, Teknotika, Jahcoozi and Modeselektor, and their father, multi-instrumentalist Ulrich Teichmann. Andi and Hannes have put together several projects in cooperation with the Goethe-Institute, like Ten-Cities, BLNRB & Soundcamps in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Mexico, and established the intercultural electro ensembles Karachi Files (Pakistan/Europe), BLNRB (Nairobi/Berlin), and Mondmaschine (Mexican/Central America/Europe). With their label Noland they are compressing this diversity. Their musical activities, from DJing, giving workshops, and playing live sets, have taken them to over 60 countries as far as Afghanistan, Honduras, Sibiria, and Angola. Home in Berlin, they've been curating several festivals, such as the "From Inside To Way Out" at HAU Hebbel Am Ufer, the African Music Convention 2014, and parts of the Worldtronics Festival at Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Lost On Earth marks the first proper studio album Gebrüder Teichmann since 2011's They Made Us Do It (FEST 042CD). Lost On Earth also features: Amman Mushtaq, Eviltapes, Daniel Goldaracena, Ammara Brown, Flexxo, Maasai Mbili, Oren Gerlitz, and Fred Britzger.
