Music of the 21st century, firmly rooted in musical history, but with new glimpses into its future.

No, this is not music you let play in the background at dinner with the family. Nor is it intended to be.

Claus Volke, hören und fühlen

It’s a very wide field that you encompass, from very clear song-structures to total freedom, openness, in which nobody knows from the beginning where it will lead, but in the end you come together

Ulf Drechsel, rbbKultur

USINE brings together 4 berlin based soloists into a disruptive, dark and energetic body. Improvisations are collaboratively reworked into pieces which form the basis of song structures and worlds from which they spring forth. USINE commissions new texts from writers worldwide and presents original anti-conservative rants with punk energy, with a freedom and relentlessness at the forefront of their sound. They will release their second album how it will be after on KLAENG Records in 2022.

“James Banner’s USINE is 45 minutes of unobvious and unpredictable music, created thanks to artists connected by an invisible but at the same time noticeable thread of unbounded agreement”

Robert Ratajczak [LongPlay]

“Musically it’s a very wide field that you encompass… from very clear song-structures to total freedom, openness, in which nobody knows from the beginning where it will lead, but in the end you come together…”

Ulf Drechsel, rbbKultur

“If you can throw past preferences overboard, USINE rewards you with a unique sound experience”
