School buses aren’t the usual catalysts for great musical achievements, but this was where Arndt Roerig and Marko Vidovic – now known around the globe as Tube & Berger – first started their musical journey. Now 15 or so years later they are two of the most seasoned house producers and in-demand remixers around, with an acclaimed studio album, releases on an array of prestigious labels, gigs at the world’s finest venues and over 25 million YouTube plays to their name. One of the biggest selling acts on Beatport in 2013 and 2014, Tube & Berger is already one of the hottest duos in the world; but this is only the beginning.
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.
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.
2014 also saw the release of their ‘Entourage’ EP that has acquired over 400,000 streams on Soundcloud since it’s release in October, as well as ‘Deeper Sessions’ on Armada – a compilation with 16 of the greatest tracks they’ve played on their monthly radio show on Sirius XM.
2016 will be a pivotal year for the Tube & Berger.
It will see them finish and release their second Album in the Autumn – the release picking up where ‘Introlution’ left off with a combination of their big club records to date, and much more electronica flecked vocal tracks featuring some very cool names from Ghost Loft, Dark Half and J.U.D.G.E. amongst others
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.
