About 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. 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 world’s renowned clubs (Cocoon Club-Frankfurt, Sankey’s-Manchester, Club A-Sao Paulo), Tube & Berger are about to release 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, Berlin’s 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 duo’s punk rock attitude mixed in for good measure. 2012 was definitely a busy year for the duo and 2013 is looking like it’s going to be their best year yet!
