LABELS: Katermukke / Suara / Heinz Music
What initially just started as the idea of spending a weekend together in the studio, has already, after almost 2 years, become a successful 2-men-project with releases on well-known labels such as KATERMUKKE, Heinz Music and Suara, RA’s most charted Label.
With their first EP on Katermukke the two guys from Mainz were already able to place their first track in the Beatport Top 100. Followed by further relases and remixes they have become a permanent member of the Katermukke family.
With the track „good hands feat. Erica Dee“ in collaboration with Lars Moston, they gained further success on Beatport, in the German Club Charts and support from all over the world.
After having played gigs all over Germany and in Switzerland, they played at the infamous Sonne Mond Sterne Festival in 2014. Further gigs in the U.S and Italy followed.
Watch out for those guys because they are just getting started- lots of new releases are coming up on Suara, Katermukke, Hive, Stil vor Talent and many more in 2015!
Hello guys! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hey, We are pretty much fine but there is no schedule for today cuz we just came home from Sonne Mond Sterne Festival, so there is just watching bad movies eat junkfood and sleep on our schedule.
Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
Well, we just had a release on Katermukke´s 100 Compilation. This is really cool cuz Katermukke is somekind of our homelabel and we are really honoured to be a part of this amazing compilation.
On this way we also want to thank Dirty Doering & Sascha Cawafor all of his support, they aren´t just the heads of Katermukke but also became friends with us.
There were also releases on smaller labels and labels which are owned by friends of us such as Incroyable Music, Indiana Tones or Endless Music.
Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
This is hard to say. We think that all of our Releases on Katermukke helped us a lot, also the release on Suara was a great success.
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned till end of the year?
Yeah, we are really happy that we can say we will be back on Suara in October.
There will be a release on Stil vor Talent in September as well as a remix for the German techno legend Housemeister on Katermukke.
As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience around the globe. What is your favourite city or country and why?
This is again hard to tell, it was a blast to fly to the United States to play in Los Angeles and New York but we think that every city has their pros & cons. So we really can´t tell what is our fav. City or country.. we like them all 😉
Such a long time as a Duo. A lot of collabs and DJ Teams are coming and going. You are standing tall with massively success! How would you describe your relationship and how do you manage 2 individuals with having a mind of one´s own?
Well there isn´t much to describe, we are just two friends who are making music and having fun playing our stuff out loud! 🙂
What was your funniest or craziest experience while touring?
Maybe that one time we played at KaterBlau / Berlin where we enjoyed the sets of the Dj´s after us that much that we stayed there way to long so that we missed our flight back home and had to go by Carsharing.
