Tube & Berger
Never ones to follow in others footsteps, the duo inject spontaneity into their lives wherever they can; travelling to unusual destinations on a whim and deeply contemplating the end of the world are just two of the ways Tube & Berger gain creative inspiration
Perhaps one of the greatest strings to their bow has been the success of their own label Kittball Records, which they run along with friend and fellow DJ Juliet Sikora. As well as releasing their own music, Kittball has helped nurture the careers of Milan Euringer (alongside whom they wrote the huge underground hit 'Lovebreak'), Jerome Robbins and Kolombo to name but a few
Tube & Berger's first release in 2014 proved to be an astonishing success. Produced alongside long-term friend and label partner Juliet Sikora, 'Set It Off' was labelled an 'Essential New Tune' by Pete Tong before going on to reach the dizzy heights of #1 and #2 on the Beatport Deep House and overall chart respectively, and amassed 3 million plays after just 9 months. The track was quickly signed to Pete Tong's FFRR with a full commercial releases in the UK, Germany, France and US later on last year. Their remix of Daniel Steinberg on Defected was also named an Essential New Tune, making it two in the same year, and made it to number 2 on Beatport
Tube & Berger are currently working on their follow up LP due in the next year, the release will pick up where 'Introlution' left off: a combination of their big club records to date, some vocal tracks featuring some very cool names and some more thoughtful electronica pieces
Until then, Tube & Berger will continue doing what they do best; creating thoughtful, considered house music that pulls just as incessantly at the heart as it does the feet. And with the quality and consistency they've shown to date, there's no limit to what they might achieve
Rather than waste words, Marek Hemmann has always preferred to let his music speak for itself. Groovy House, minimalist Techno, sonic sensitivity and an unbridled joy in melody unite to speak of restless days and magical nights, tearing holes in the cloud cover and carrying sun beams to the deepest cellar.
Today Marek Hemmann lives in Berlin and from there tours the clubs and festivals of the world. Like his studio productions, his live shows direct the focus first and foremost to the floor, but are always augmented by a very particular, musically sensitive ease. A sound not only difficult to resist, but which tells us more about Marek Hemmann than words ever could.
