My Musical Influences: Tube & Berger
6th July 2018 saw house music stars Junior Jack and Tube & Berger team up to deliver an impressive update to one of dance music’s all-time much-loved anthems, ‘E Samba 2018’.
Originally released in 2003, ‘E Samba’ took clubland by storm, it was THE summer hit of that year and became a certified house classic. Fast forward 15 years and now Germany’s sought after DJ/producer duo Tube & Berger have put their own unique stamp on track by bringing it to bang up-to-date with their trademark production techniques whilst maintaining the beloved essence of the original – the perfect summer anthem all over again!
Tube & Berger explain: “In our early raving days we were huge fans of Junior Jack and always thought of remixing E Samba. But, being completely unknown and lacking studio skills we didn’t even ask for it. A couple of years and a few Beatport hits later we met Vito at Ibiza airport, took a selfie with him and Berger asked him if he was up for a collaboration. He loved the idea but again it took some time to send a rough demo of our E Samba interpretation. From that moment on, all three of us kept sending ideas to each other and testing them at clubs and festivals. It got better and better and here we are…”
Here they tell us about the music that has influenced them in their careers so far…
Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name
“Where’s the revolution gone?” “Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me” was our motto back in the day.
Tears For Fears – Mad World
It’s still a mad world, maybe even more than in times of Tears For Fears.
Mylo – Otto’s Journey
Destroy Rock & Roll is one of the greatest albums in dance history, we are big fans of Mylo.
Daft Punk – Rollin’ and Scratchin’
This song was one of the reasons why we switched from playing punk music in shady shacks to playing electronic music in shady shacks.
Mr X & Mr Y – New World Order
We’ve always been fans of Westbam and Africa Islam aka Mr X and Mr Y, this song, in particular, is dealing with one of our favourite topics.
Busta Rhymes – Gimme Some More
We’ve never been big experts of the hip-hop genre, but Busta Rhymes is just killing it.
The Shadows – Apache
Classic Western surf guitar music is a must on every trash party and in our car sound system.
Emanuel Top – Acid Phase
Probably no other track reminds us of our early raving days as good as this one. We remember when we heard the acid bassline and we had to laugh and danced like crazy.
Josh Wink – Higher State of Consciousness
What goes for Acid Phase also applies here. Got absolutely hammered to this one.
Supermax – It Ain’t Easy
When you grew up in the 80’s you loved music like this, even though this one’s from 1979.
