Gebrüder Teichmann on Disko B! Subsequent to the outstanding succes of the Yesternight EP (ranked 25 in the Groove Charts; Hot Shots DCC), the Berlin based exile-Bavarians, “Festplatten” label runners and musical globetrotters  finally bless us with their first album “The Number Of The Beat”. For over eight years they have been effectually operating their label Festplatten and exploring the world (Europe, Sibiria, Japan, South America and Middle East) in order to perform and to spin records. They moved from Regensburg to Berlin, released on Kompakt and as beigeGt members on L’Age D’or. Now they’ve spotted a new home in their old homeland. Finding Upstart as their new label boss meant meeting somebody whom they had known for over ten years at that time. During the old days at Munichs legendary Ultraschall, where Andi and Hannes went to as young ravers and became residents later,  they had experienced a lot together. For this reason they put their phenomenal debut album in the hands of Disko B. During their versatile rocking DJ- and live-sets, the passion and enthusiasm for music can always be felt. As their father is a jazz saxophonist, “handmade” music had always been a serious influence on their music.But which number is the one of the beat now? According to the Teichmanns point of view there are many. On the one side the number is a result of analogue drum machines and on the other it’s the consequence of  unwarped music making. And therefore quite differing facettes can be heared on their album. Let’s take the collaborations with Chanteuse Alice Clement, who figures out a glitch in the matrix (“Un Bug”) with unbending energy, only to battle the uninspired Berlin minimal hype with the bone dry track “Minimal Scheißegal” and at least suggests the audience to dance to death with the poppy “So Dance”, or the already released rave monster “Dance & More” on Speicher, which obtains an even bigger brother with “Karacho”. Of course beigeGT singer Martin Haygis can’t be missed, even if he would rather be Alain Delon on the joyfully clicking and roaring “Romy”. “Offset” provides even more deepness and the title track claims very funky and discoesquely that 606 is meant to be “The Number Of The Beat”. Still the beat exhibits a whole lotta different numbers, smoother and less per minute.: “Nick” brings the waltz back to electronic music, “Whateverman” gets delighted by the sun shining on his belly and swims on fat bass beats, accompanied by cello and guitar on the waves of tape delays. “Inviolata” is truly based on a motette of Guilaume de Machant from the 14th century. Nevertheless everything matches perfectly…
