There’s a hint of childhood nostalgia when hearing the words, Teenage Mutants; however, the one man show from Mainz (Germany) has established himself as a serious force in the deep house scene. On October 9th, 2015 Teenage Mutants released his newest single Take Me Higher.
Take Me Higher kicks off with an echoing wave of percussive instruments, which propels into a sexy bassline, entrapping you into curious groove and melody. Deep house rhythms are paired with chanting vocals, taking you to a higher state of consciousness. Twinkling keys fade out as the bassline dominates, and Teenage Mutants does it again. Take Me Higher is the kind of record you want to hear while dancing with your best friends, as the sun comes up on the terrace, and smiling faces surround you.
Since then, Teenage Mutants has proven he’s no one trick pony, as releases on Suara, Stil vor Talent, Light my Fire, Kittball, Katermukke and Nervous have cemented his position in the underground. While People, together with Purple Disco Machine, kicked 2014 off with a bang, another collaboration with his good buddy took the summer by storm – The Path, a seriously feel-good flute anthem, has been inescapable during the season.
The next step? A debut album, of course. Set to be released in 2015 on Oliver Koletzki’s Stil vor Talent label, Teenage Mutants’ first long-player will be the fruit of hard labour – and a massive achievement, bearing his hectic gig schedule in mind. For as a DJ, he has traveled the world: from Johannesburg to Moscow, Miami to Berlin, the name Teenage Mutants stands for quality DJ sets, always built around a solid groove and a desire to narrate. Cowabunga!
