Interview: Tube & Berger

By Alex Brown - 25.5.17

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell.

This is the supporting quote that recapitulates Tube & Berger’s new politically charged single ‘International Corporate Motherfuckers,’ taken from their upcoming album We Are All Stars, which will be released on May 19th via Embassy One.

The press release for this track sums it up beautifully: “A seven minute number squarely aimed at both the dance floor and the politicians, investment bankers, businesses, large pharmaceuticals, lobbyists etc, that are simply messing it up for the rest of us and as such, is a much needed response to the current global crises from the otherwise supine dance scene.”

The revenues from this single are all being donated to children’s charity ‘IT BEGAN IN AFRICA’ – a testament to Tube & Berger’s commitment to their cause. Of the single, the duo aptly state:

“There was a time when music artists spoke truth to power, it was kind of our job, but it seems those days are over, nobody says anything about anything to anybody and especially in the dance scene. Well, in these times of trouble, we are as mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore! Our lawyers told us we cannot explicitly name and shame those responsible – but we all know who they are. So, are you with us or against us? Do you also feel it is time that us dance people made our feelings known? If you do, you know what to do. Be part of The solution, not the Problem.”

Now comes the release of their full album, We Are All Stars, a twelve track collection which features an array of collaborations including post-punk band White Lies, Richard Judge, and Kyle Pearce. Described as their most accomplished work to date, this high profile project once again affirms the reputation of Arndt Rörig and Marco Vidoviz, AKA Tube & Berger as “a prominent and respected name within the international underground house music scene for over a decade.”
