MEUTE release latest single ‘PLACES’, taken from forthcoming TAUMEL album

Stream now:

FTechno marching band MEUTE delivers the next brand-new single on in-house label TUMULT. Out now, ‘PLACES’ is a MEUTE rework of the same name by French duo ‘The Blaze’.

Compared to previous MEUTE singles, ‘PLACES’ has a slightly softer touch and more of a tropical vibe. Exceptional for the band are vocals by MEUTE’s bass saxophone player Philip Morton Andernach. In this setting, MEUTE again finds new ways between the characteristic live techno sound and a more receivable house vibe, ready for the next summer rave.

This unique band has been making worldwide waves since 2016. The 11 musicians from Hamburg wear their iconic red jackets and love to break the rules and defy boundaries. What started as a small experiment on the streets of St. Pauli quickly became a globally acclaimed phenomenon. The band revolutionises techno and redefines the concept of a brass band using only acoustic instruments. They have crafted viral hits, sold-out clubs, had props from Dixon, Laurent Garnier and BBC Radio 1 amongst many more, and generate real excitement every time they play.

The new single shows the versatility of the upcoming album TAUMEL, out on November 18th. After finishing their second North America tour at the legendary Coachella Festival, MEUTE is embraced to unveil a world of electronic indulgence on Europe’s Festival stages.

Rampage returns to Open Air for an XXL edition this year


3 days instead of two, 6 stages total and more than 250 artists from all over the world, including the biggest dubstep line-up in EU history, plus swimming pools, skate ramps, big screen cinema, pre and after parties, silent disco… Rampage is pulling out all the stops!


July 1, 2 and 3, Rampage returns to Kristalpark in Lommel (Belgium), a pristine spot away from everyone and everything, to set up a Walhalla for drum & bass and dubstep fans. After a first, very successful edition in 2019, this second editions of the biggest drum & bass and dubstep party in the world is set to be of the highest possible level. With over 250 acts from all corners of the world, including the likes of turntable don Andy C, studio wizards Camo & Krooked, crowd favourites Macky Gee, Koven and Kanine, recent sensation Luude and bass music heroes like Nero and Modestep, the line-up is looking tastier than ever. Add to that hostings by Star Warz, for the deep end, and Invaderz, for the classic jump-up sound, as well as acts representing every possible flavour of drum&bass, every fan of the genre will be spoiled in abundance.

For the neuro fans, Rampage has the likes of Audio, The Upbeats, Pythius, Teddy Killerz, Ed Rush and Neonlight. For the jump-up gang, there’s acts like Original Sin, Upgrade, Hedex, Turno, Problem Central and Annix. Artists like Metrik, Rene LaVice, Maduk, The Prototypes, Danny Byrd and Tantrum Desire can be expected to play across the board, while Etherwood or Edlan will surely bring the smoothness. Taking care of the rollers are leading performers such as Enei, Levela, S.P.Y., AC13 and Born On Road, while the likes of Bryan Gee and Dillinja can take it back to the old school properly.


With 150 drum&bass artists on the bill, Rampage Open Air ticks every box of the genre, bit it’s also a resurrection of dubstep of sorts, with the biggest dubstep line-up in European history. With loads of new acts from Australia and the US popping up in recent years, plus a renewed intrest for the UK producers, the genre is getting its second wind. From old school heroes like Nero, Modestep and Caspa, to new school favourites like Virtual Riot (who recently made it into DJMag’s top 100 out of the blue), FuntCase, Riot Ten, PhaseOne, Herobust and Spag Heddy, dubstep is taking over an entire stage for 3 days, with extra acts sprinkled out on other stages too.

Add to that a standout live performance of Canadian masterminds Black Tiger Sex Machine and Uk bass house flavours from Holy Goof and Skepsis & Darkzy, this line-up truly brings together all flavours of bass music.


Next to adding absolutely top notch production, with lights, LEDs and lasers as far as the eye can see, Rampage prides itself in offering the best possible experience for its visitors and the festival site will be set up in away to provide the most comfortable circumstances to enjoy the music and the sideshow entertainment. Because next to the biggest line-up a mass music festival ever brought together, there are free swimming pools on the campsite, a skateramp on site with demos every day, there are free bumper cars and other carnival rides, a festival market, big screen cinema to chill out, silent disco afterparty’s and loads more.

After a gruesome 2 years of postponing the annual indoor event, Rampage finally returned to Sportpaleis in March with stellar performances by Noisia, Pendulum, Modestep, Koven, Camo & Krooked & Mefjus, Eptic, Virtual Riot and Murdock, and the team is amped and ready to produce an even more amazing Open Air festival this summer.
