Name: Kilian Mutter
Company: Just Because
Title: National Promoter / Booking Agent
Based in: Zürich
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster? Just Because specializes in promoting and booking concerts within Switzerland and as such focuses on developing the careers of a wide range of international newcomers as well as established artists, and some promising Swiss talents. Thanks to its long-standing experience, large network and versatile interests, it ensures to provide one of the most varied artists rosters in Switzerland.
– and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? My personal Swiss roster includes artists just as Tash Sultana (AUS), Jacob Banks (UK), Crimer (CH), Pablo Nouvelle (CH), First Hate (DK) or Chinah (DK).
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? It must have been around the time when my childhood idol Manu Chao didn’t release any new music for a while and I started trawling through obscure forums and early music blogs to find bootlegs and radio recordings. This must have triggered my love for digging for artists and music flying under the radar.
What are your favourite Danish acts? First Hate, Iceage, Safri Duo 😉
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? Probably Swiss Experimental-Avant-Psych-Minimal wizards Schnellertollermeier at Bad Bonn Kilbi in 2017 or Arcade Fire at Open Air St. Gallen 2007.
