Originally finding fame with a cover of Âme’s classic track “REJ”, MEUTE is now a worldwide phenomenon.
MEUTE is a unique concept that blends techno with a brass band to in their own words “fills in a gap you never knew existed”. Originally finding fame on the streets of Hamburg St. Pauli, the eleven full-blooded musicians in their iconic red jackets have managed to spread their love for hand-made electronic music all over Europe, and become one of the continent’s most booked festival bands.
Recently MEUTE dropped a remix pack of their album PULS which features reworks of their tracks from people like Kölsch and Boris Brejcha. Having gone full circle with electronic artists now reworking their band tracks, we asked them if you could return to your roots and perform an impromptu performance anywhere in the world, where would you pick, and why?
Thomas Burhorn (MEUTE – Band Conductor): The nice thing is – we can do impromptu performances anywhere already. And we do it. Our experience is, that our music is so universal, that almost everybody finds a connection to it. Be it the punk or the agency guy, the grandmother or the little kid, in Poland or in South Africa. We overcome boundaries and that’s beautiful. So we are looking very much forward all our impromptu gigs in the future!
We would love to play in the Headquarters of the United Nations to rave with all the presidents of every nation, and then ask everybody… why it is so difficult with this world peace thing?
MEUTE is soon to start their PULS Tour 2020, and for those looking to see them live you can find tickets HERE
