Single Review: “Aurora” – MEUTE

A mix of electronica and a brass band?

From Germany you say?

Go ahead.

I’m listening!

This track fuses horns and drums with electronic sounds on the bed of a steady beat… there’s a marimba too. The percussion mixed in is down so well, shakers highlighting the hi hats… this is a banger!

The thing that really caught my ear is the way that sonically, it melts together so well. You can’t really tell the difference between the EDM elements and the acoustic instruments, and sometimes that’s a good thing especially in this case. 

This is from their forthcoming album “Empor”. Quite frankly I can’t wait to hear the rest of it!

From their Spotify: 

When the bass drops and the confetti blows up: MEUTE breaks the code. The Techno Marching Band combines hypnotic driving techno and expressive brass band music, freeing electronic music from the DJ desk and overhauling the image of marching bands. They started as an experiment and evolved to a world-acclaimed phenomenon in a minimum of time. Just drums and brass, no computers involved, this is all they need to revolutionize techno music and bring it back to its roots at the same time. The eleven musicians in their iconic red jackets have managed to spread their love for hand-made electronic music all over the planet. The videos of their impromptu street gigs regularly attract millions of views.
