Tube & Berger started their musical journey over a decade ago. Since then, the house producers released two acclaimed studio albums, played gigs around the world and have over 60 million YouTube plays to their name – and of course, they have frequented many Zurich clubs, including The Penthouse!
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 The Pretender’s 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.
