The Berlin based Gebrüder Teichmann are the two brothers Andi and Hannes Teichmann who work as musicians, DJs and producers and cultural activists.
Their work is not limited by style or genre borders. With their musical and cultural projects they always search for new ways to build bridges.
Gebrüder Teichmann started getting into music in 1989 at the age of 9 and 12 years with their punk band Totalschaden before they discovered electronic music.
They´ve been an active part of the Berlin underground scene since the late 90s and have been playing all relevant Berlin clubs from Berghain/Panorama Bar, WMF to Bar25.
Since 2009 they are hosting regular nights at Suicide Circus Berlin.
Together and solo they have released on various labels, such as Kompakt, Ladomat, Killekill, Staubgold, Outhere or Disko B and their own electro label Festplatten.
Various collaborations from hip hop to new music, from traditional to experimental music followed.
In the field of contemporary music they´ve worked with ensembles as Ensemble Modern or Ensemble Decoder and composers as Moritz Eggert or Leopold Hurt.
Beside that they perform with their father Uli Teichmann as Teichmann & Söhne.
The improvisation trio not only brings together two generations of german avantgarde musicians, but combines elements of world, freejazz, ambient, techno and krautrock.
As networkers they brothers developed intercultural projects in cooperation with Goethe-Institutes around the world.
Since 2009 they have put together the project BLNRB with the Goethe-Institut Kenya including artists like Modeselektor, Jahcoozi, Just a Band, Ukoo Flani beside others and have been part of the TEN CITIES project management, a research and collaboration project, focusing on history and present of the underground club scenes in the European cities of Berlin, Bristol, Kyiv, Lisbon and Naples and the African cities of Johannesburg, Cairo, Luanda, Lagos and Nairobi.
They’ve developed the project format Soundcamp, that brings musicians from different countries together. Soundcamps have been hosted in collaboration with the Goethe-Institute so far in Colombo Sri Lanka, Malinalco Mexico & Karachi Pakistan.
In Berlin they curated several nights at Worldtronic Festival at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, the Africa Music Convention 2014 as part of the Berlin Music Week and initiated and curated the interdisciplinary festival “From Inside To Way Out – Perspectives From Contemporary Pakistan” in collaboration with HAU, Hebbel am Ufer 2015.
Their diverse musical activities DJing, giving workshops and playing live have taken them to over 60 countries as far as Afghanistan, Angola or Honduras.
Since 2016 they started the label NOLAND.
NOLAND grows from the Gebrüder Teichmann’s deep roots in the Techno Underground and DIY culture of the 90s, has been nurtured by recent fertile intercultural projects and collaborations and extends outwards towards a constellation of ongoing and future projects.
NOLAND is about electronic urban world music, which has no map, no grid and no rules and leads from the underground into the interground.
