Blending jazz with house and techno: the Munich-based big band is getting ready to raise the roof of the Elbphilharmonie.

They are probably the only big band to have a residency in a techno club: Jazzrausch play regularly at Harry Klein in Munich. The 20-strong band is all about musical rapture, getting hundreds of people dancing in the club to their ecstasy-inducing live sets. But does combining jazz and techno even work? You bet it does! With a blend of powerful brass passages and the groove of techno, hip-hop and soul, they produce an electrifying sound that gets rave reviews from even the most die-hard jazz fans.
