Arndt Roerig and Marko Vidovic – known as Tube & Berger – started their musical journey over a decade ago. Since then the house producers and in-demand remixers have two acclaimed studio albums, releases on an array of prestigious labels, constant gigs around the world and over 50 million YouTube plays to their name.
From early experiments in the world of Punk music, the German duo’s first breakthrough came with their 2004 hit ‘Straight Ahead’, which featured the vocals of Chrissie Hynde and shot straight to the top of the Billboard Dance Radio Chart. Since this early success, their output has evolved significantly, through incorporating real-life recordings and samples into their music. Their intricate, emotion-laden production style creates records that are organic and evocative, without losing that dancefloor punch essential for the modern-day DJ.
Tube & Berger have undoubtedly shaped the Deep House genre, crafting several scene defining records in the last couple of years. More notably is ‘Imprint of Pleasure’, a heart-wrenchingly poignant dance floor anthem released on Suara Records that was named Beatport’s 9th Top Selling Track of All Time, racked up a hefty 30 million streams on Spotify and has provided the soundtrack for festivals and dance floors for over many years.
Last year, Tube & Berger and Junior Jack’s collaboration track “E Samba 2018” peaked at No.2 on the Beatport main chart and was Beatport’s 4th Top Selling Track of 2018 in the House genre, gaining huge DJ support from the likes of Pete Tong, Erick Morillo, Claptone, Fisher, Flashmob and Nora En Pure. A remix edition of E Samba 2018 with reinterpretations from Josh Butler and Kellerkind was released soon after.
Along with friend and fellow DJ Juliet Sikora, the Duo run Kittball Records. As well as releasing their own music, Kittball have signed prominent artists like &ME, Andhim, Dennis Cruz, Ida Engberg, illyus & Barrientos, Purple Disco Machine, Township Rebellion and many more.
On Kittball, Tube & Berger released their debut studio album ‘Introlution’ back in 2012. Their second album ‘WE ARE ALL STARS’ was released in May 2017, of which two remix editions were released in 2018.
In terms of live performances – Tube & Berger never tire. The guys are proven Ibiza heavyweights with frequent shows at ANTS in Ushuaia and Booom! Ibiza. Festival-wise they had sets at Tomorrowland, Loveweek Festival, Eastport Festival, Claptone’s Masquerade and played dates at ADE including ‘All Gone Pete Tong’ and multiple Toolroom Showcases.
