RENEGAT, born in Hamburg, had a deep relationship with subcultural music at an early age. Already in the mid 80' he discovered his love for rap and hip hop, whereas scratch-mad Dj`s caused a special fascination in him.At the beginning of the 90's he noticed this new, different sound, repetitive beats, spoken or sung words merely used as a rhythm elements, dragging him onto the dance floors of burgeoning underground clubs. It quickly became clear that he wanted to become an active part of this new music, so turntables and mixers were acquired. Since the early 2000s, RENEGAT, at that time releasing online Dj Mixes under the stage name `ReeGee`, has meanwhile ombined several decades rave experiences and mixing into a creative bundle; records are no longer cut but mixed in interweaving patterns.After an almost 15-years 'paternity leave', accompanied by first attempts as a producer, the compulsion back to decks and dance floors can no longer be tamed, and RENEGAT enters the subcultural public again with a new, current sound between psy-tech and minimal, playful, trippy and as driving as it is still for him dance floors. Now, in 2020, he has found his creative environment within the Sinus-HH collective.

Meto, born in Schwerin in 1988, is one of Hamburg's insider tips. Through his older sisters, he experienced first-hand the high phase of the techno explosion of the 90s, since then the love of electronic music had its heart beat in four-quarter time. After finally arriving in Hamburg, he quickly discovered the pulsating underground techno scene, which at that time was largely influenced by artists such as Jonas Wahrlich and 2Toon, and whose party series Plux, to this day, are among his favorite artists.In this environment, Martin Gruen crossed metos way, an encounter that should not be without consequences. Through the influence of Martin, interest in the active side of this scene grew, and it wasn't long before Meto found himself on the mixer. Meto is a rather shy being, so he never had the urge to focus on what he does, something like career plans he just doesn't have, the more the joy when someone appreciates his sound!As a DJ, his base was and is Hamburg and its surroundings, so over the years he enchanted one or the other dance floor, Fundbureau, South Pole, Rote Flora, the Bollwerk in Lübeck, as well as many illegal open airs in Hamburg.Since 2016, Meto has had his place in the DJ collective Sinus, founded by Martin Gruen and Reduzida, and shared the desk with artists such as AudioPunx, Insect Elektrika, Rausch & Metrik.
In 2007, the two long-time mates Flo and Simon brought their first music project to life called rausch&metrik. After a few months of searching for a common ground, they found a mutual musical base in deep and dark Techno. Their productions are remarkably influenced by underground parties, the varied club scene in Hamburg and also by many techno and electronic events like the Fusion Festival, Nation of Gondwana, or even the Indian Spirit Festival. By combining their different production skills in perfect harmony, they found the key to develope a very own style, which makes them now well known in Hamburg. Soon after founding rausch&metrik, they decided to create special kinds of sets by using only self made music. With a huge music portfolio, they create very unique and powerful sets, ranging from dry minimal up to progressive Techno.
