Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records is entering 2019 rocking with a massive new compilation, This Is Toolroom, stacked with 20 of the label’s brightest talents. Featuring names like Secondcity, Eli Brown, Amine Edge & Dance, Adrian Hour and Kinnerman, there is a whole lot of quality house to go around. German house duo Tube & Berger deliver one of the best cuts on the entire compilation with “Bierchen.”
Tube & Berger don’t just lay down a nasty groove with a thumping bass line, they also provide an infectious melody as fx flutter in the background and organs float in the air. A reverbed voice saying “beer” echoes throughout the mix, getting caught up in your veins and warming you up like a good stout.
The duo explain the inspiration behind the track (hint its booze, but not too much).
“The idea for our track "Bierchen" arose in a foggy autumn night in the mid west of Germany. We were having a long studio day, but did not reach our desired sound yet. Hunting down a range of musical ideas did not prove to be successful,” explain tube & Berger. “After calling it a day, we decided to drink a small bottle of the German nation-juice called beer. Soon after, we found ourselves back on track, creating this very tune. We dedicated it the German word "Bierchen," which means small beer.”
The compilation is a small snapshot of house music today. You will hear a lot of snares flying during off beats and Tube & Berger are no exception.
