Where are you currently based?
We are based in Frankfurt Germany.
How did Teenage Mutants form?
We have been friends for over 18 years now. We came together through early rave experiences in Frankfurt and started DJing around 2002 and some years later began to produce tracks. So 2010 we started the Project ‘Teenage Mutants’ with no idea where it was headed!
What’s been happening recently?
We are still in the pandemic so we are producing a lot of music and from time to time we have the luck to play a gig. Hopefully 2022 will be the change we need to get back to normal DJ Life.
Please tell us about your current projects:
End of 2020 we started our own label „TRAGEDIE“ a music and fashion brand. This takes most of the time at the moment. Beside this and Teenage Mutants we running an Event and Artist Agency called ‘Wir Sind Verboten’. We are running events in Germany, Europe and around the world.
What influences your sound and songwriting?
Mostly the 80’s. The melodies and baselines from that time are always a good inspiration to create something new. We don’t produce after rules. We make our own techno sound.
How do you usually go about writing music?
Mostly we start with a drum groove and just let it go. Synths and Sounds will be added step by step just how with the flow, how we will it.
How’s the overseas scene been treating you?
OZ was always a great experience. Actually one of the best countries to travel and to play. People are always smiling and having a good time. Really excited to come back.
You’re coming to Melbourne to play Shelter Festival, what do you have in store for this show?
We have 3 new EPs which are ready to be tested on the big floor. They will show the people our way of techno music.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
The Dream Academy – New Light
What do you like to do away from music?
Good Food and Good Wine.
What’s planned for 2022?
To play a lot of gigs and release our music and of course to play Shelter at Sea Works in Melbourne on 2 April!
