Teenage Mutants lands on UMEK’s 1605


UMEK’s label 1605 kickstarts the new year with an EP from German duo Teenage Mutants who have previously released their techno tracks on the likes of Tronic, Terminal M, Senso Sounds and Noir Music.

Since it’s relaunch, 1605 has been focused exclusively towards UMEK’s own tracks. This release is a statement of intent showing what’s planned for 2020, as the label is also a platform that supports the artists played in the DJ sets of the label owner.

Teenage Mutants travel the world playing gigs across Europe, Asia, USA and South America. They have recently been taking their tracks down a darker more hard-hitting style, with a focus on the peak time style of techno showcased on this release. Alongside the two originals there is also a remix from Heerhorst, who is an up and coming German talent already making waves with his notable tracks and remixes on Octopus, Riot Recordings, Set About and Stil Vor Talent.

For our premiere via NUDE, Heerhorst reworks “Return”. Heerhorst adds bursts of acid and a bassline which tears out the speakers. Keeping the euphoric elements, but adding extra atmosphere to give the tracks a darker more menacing sound, this version is great for those who prefer things a little more sinister.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
