Teenage Mutants perform at El Chiringuito, Dubai exclusively for Taste The Punch at Aztec Garden, Thursday 6th September.
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 divers 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 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.
