Tube + Berger
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 put out two acclaimed studio albums, released on an array of prestigious labels, played constant gigs around the world and now have over 100 million Spotify Streams and counting to their name.
After 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 Hyndeand shot straight to the top of the Billboard Dance Radio Chart. Since this early success, their output has evolved significantly by 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 dance floor punch essential for the modern-day DJ.
Tube & Berger have undoubtedly helped to shape the house genre, crafting several scene defining records in the last couple of years. Most notable 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. It tracked up a hefty 36 million streams on Spotify and has provided the soundtrack for festivals and dance floors for many years.
Last year, Tube & Berger and Junior Jack’s collaboration track ‘E Samba 2018′ was a No.1 in the Beatport House Chart for six weeks. In 2019, Tube & Berger’s remix for Samim – ‘Heater’ became a global dance floor hit and instantly rushed to the Beatport No.1 spot on the main chart before staying there for weeks.
Along with friend and fellow DJ Juliet Sikora, the duo run the Kittball Records and ZEHN Records labels. Next to releasing their own tracks, both labels have signed prominent artists like &ME, Andhim, Betoko, Dennis Cruz, Djuma Soundsystem, Ida Engberg, illyus & Barrientos, Purple Disco Machine, Township Rebellion and many more. On Kittball, Tube & Berger also released their debut studio album ‘Introlution’ back in 2012. Their second album ‘WE ARE ALL STARS’ was released in May 2017.
In terms of live performances, Tube & Berger never tire. Tube & Berger are proven Ibiza heavyweights with frequent shows at ANTS in Ushuaia and Hï Ibiza. Festival-wise, they’ve headlined at Tomorrowland, Loveweek Festival, Eastport Festival, Claptone’s Masquerade and played dates at ADE including ‘All Gone Pete Tong’ and multiple Toolroom Showcases.
