Teutonic Kaboom, live at Detatched 05.06.2010

Here’s a recent set recording (well recentish it is August at the time of writing) from Mantis Radio favourite Teutonic Kaboom, direct from her set at Leeds night Detatched back in early June.

Full of some personal faves, including Mad-Tek, Loops Haunt, Molez and Planetary Assault Systems. Her mix on Mantis Radio from back in 2008 still gets played around these parts.

“Within the UK any Midlands-residing purveyor of electronic music will endlessly extol the virtues of nights like Atomic Jam and House of God. After all, what better way to cut your teeth and gain inspiration by checking the likes of Neil Landstrumm and Surgeon on a regular basis? Add to this a more ‘localised’ free party scene and it becomes clear as day why Teutonic Kaboom does what she does.

Descriptive analysis of anyone’s compositions is always subject to opinion. Rude, bass-heavy manoeuvres oscillating somewhere between electro, 2-step and breakbeat is a pretty safe bet. Just check the labels on an ever-growing discography: Data-Trace, Bass Gun, Wide, Digital Distortions, some of the most respected, forward thinking electronic labels around.

And when someone cites the likes of Rag and Bone, Monolake and Trent Reznor as inspiration, you know they’re worth a listen. It’s a no-brainer. Whilst a full page of influences alone could be added, it’s safe to say that everyone from the likes of Dave Clarke, Speedy J through to Depeche Mode have all left their mark.

As one of the founding members of the Electrode crew, you can catch Charl on a regular basis either at their Manchester parties, or up and down the country at some of the most-respected nights around. “Breaks, electro, techno, ghettotech, wonk. For me it’s all about the party”. Damn right.
