Artists Tube & Berger
Growing up in a small industrial town in Germany and confronted with the boredom that comes with it, Tube & Berger, aka Arndt Roerig and Marko Vidovic, found music at an early age. Then, age sixteen, the two found themselves performing stage shows in a punk band when the ‘90s House and Techno boom hit town. Driven by the challenge of giving electronic music an organic and “live character”, they made their breakthrough in 2004. The Song „Straight Ahead“ featuring new wave legend Chrissie Hynde climbed straight to the top of the US Billboard Dance Radio Charts and bookings from all over the world started to roll in. Wanting to have the freedom to pave their own musical path and not have to bow down to a major label dictatorship, or be lured by money-grabbing managers, the two decided to establish their own label “Kittball Records”, with their friend and colleague Dj Juliet Sikora. Kittball was an immediate success and soon found itself amongst the ranks of the top Tech and Deep house labels, with its tracks regularly played by the international Dj Elite. The three ‘Kittballers’ are also responsible for the „It Began In Africa“ charity project. The project, which helps young African musicians, has released two compilations and received massive support from artists such as Timo Maas, Ida Engberg, Format B and Pirupa. After “Free Tribe”, Tube & Berger reached the Beatport number 1 spot once again with the track “Lovebreak” Featuring Milan Euringer and their newest release “Pleasure Dip” on the Spanish label Suara can be found in many DJ and download charts. After 8 years of constant touring and gigs in some of the world’s renowned clubs (Cocoon Club-Frankfurt, Sankey’s-Manchester, Club A-Sao Paulo), Tube & Berger still found the time to release their first studio album titled “Introlution”, which was highly praised by both critics and fans alike. 2012 was definitely a busy year for the duo and 2013 is looking like it’s going to be their best year yet!
