Tube & Berger, DE (Kittball, Suara, Great Stuff)

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. Tube & Bergers Free Tribe single from the project reached the top of the Beatport charts, where it stayed for several weeks and went on to become an international club hit. At the moment, their track Soulgood is charted in various Dj and download charts, plus video rotation on MTV Europe.After 8 years of constant touring and gigs in some of the worlds renowned clubs (Cocoon Club-Frankfurt, Sankeys-Manchester, Club A-Sao Paulo),

Tube & Berger released their first studio album titled Introlution. Introlution is being released on Kittball Records at the end of June 2012. On the album, the duo hooks up with Chicago House legend Robert Owens, the trumpeter Thalstroem, Berlins Meggy, Kittball newcomer PAJI and of course their label partner Juliet Sikora.Introlution is a fresh new approach to the club sound and has a touch of the duos punk rock attitude mixed in for good measure. The overall feeling is a clubby album that will surely define the sound of 2012 and 2013.
The Worker, Austin TX (White Label, Fiction)

Recently relocated to Austin from San Francisco, The Worker (Michael Kelly) has been DJing and promoting house and techno events since 2007, starting with the rowdy monthly party Fiction, co-produced with DJs André Lucero and Christian Blaafjell (MFYRS). Hosted at Vertigo, with a healthy pinch of unruliness seeping in from SF's rather vivid Polk Street, the night consistently delivered a dizzying dose of techno, electro and mutant disco for a few bleary-eyed years before making it's way to SF's tiny underground dance music gem, 222 Hyde. In addition to hosting local talent such as Sammy D. (PillowTalk), Anthony Mansfield and Tal M. Klein, Fiction also welcomed Lee Foss, John Selway and Rob Rives for special one night events. Outside of Fiction, The Worker regularly played throughout SF, opening for artists such as Stacey Pullen, Claude Von Stroke, Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Morgan Geist, Tom Middleton and Worthy. During the last couple years The Worker focused his energies on producing and playing the Friday night underground house and techno happy hour White Label, held at Sixth St.'s Showdown with residents Michael Perry (x2) and Matt Wilder. Special guests included Jonah Sharp, Dave Aju, Eric Cloutier, Michael Tello (PillowTalk), Mr. White, Kevin Knapp and numerous other talented DJs from SF and beyond.

Over the years The Worker has found a sound that moves from funk-driven deep house to swirling mutant disco to chunky rolling techno with it's gaze slightly tilted upwards. Just settling into Austin, a city with it's own rich musical history, The Worker joins a growing electronic music scene and continues to actively DJ and promote events while developing new musical projects.
