Probably by our choice – tune of the year 2013 even though Daft Punk album is on the way. Sandy Rivera makes it big, bringing his coincidental case – meeting April while she was driving a bike and hearing her singing on the road. With “Fall For You” the magic is made. It’s just one of those tunes that make you fall in love again and again. Enjoy in this future classic!
One of the hottest tunes this year is for sure Hot Natured “Reverse Skydiving” that features incredible voice of Anabel Englund!
Enjoy the lovely tune and the lyrics:
“Flying, Climbing, this is what I feel when i’m reverse skydiving, Neptune, Shining, frying all the elements as they’re combining, Rewind Timing, This be the contract for sky i’ll be signing, no concern for wining or dining, wind so blue that it might be blindin’, all that i know is I won’t be minding!
You don’t have to jump to flyyyy with me, You don’t have to jump to fly with me, You don’t have to jump to flyyyy with me, You don’t have to jump to fly with me.”
Tune will be released on 6th of May 2013 on Hot Creations!
Retuning for its 8th annual outing, Defected In The House Miami 2013 is a collection of pure underground house music from three of the finest electronic acts in the world. Mixed by the Italian trio of Flashmob, Supernova and Pirupa, this 3CD and digital release includes tracks and remixes from the finest producers in the world, including Hot Chip, Kris Wadsworth, Todd Terje, Blaze and Matthias Tanzmann as well as new and exclusive tracks from Flashmob, Supernova and Pirupa themselves, marking the 50th release of the acclaimed In The House series.
It’s impossible to ignore the impact of Italian artists on the current electronic music landscape. In 2012, two of the biggest records of the year were produced by Italians – Pirupa’s Track of the Year-winning Party Non Stop and Flashmob’s instant classic Need In Me – while in Ibiza, the Italian invasion is a well-documented August phenomenon that leads to the busiest summer period on the White Isle.
It was also in 2012 that Marco Carola stepped away from his Cocoon brethren and struck out alone, taking his Music On night to Amnesia; a brave and ultimately highly successful move given the intensity of competition on the island. In short, it’s hard to imagine as thriving an electronic music scene without the influence of these Italian maestros.
Step forward three of the country’s finest exports in Supernova, Flashmob and Pirupa to deliver a mix each on Defected In The House Miami 2013.
After the ravenous response to singles ‘Brick House’, ‘Ninety Five’ and – most significantly – ‘Need In Me’, Flashmob have carved an indelible niche for themselves, crafting sublimely unpretentious house music, the widespread appeal of which has been near unprecedented. Their mix explores the deeper territories of house music, flitting between skipping, 90s-inspired beats and more acid-flavoured influences, and includes A Guy Called Gerald’s The Universe, the George Fitzgerald remix of Brawther’s Spaceman and their own brand new single Pieces feat. Laila Walker.
Perhaps best known for their acclaimed and much-discussed collaboration with Kevin Saunderson on 2010’s ‘Beat Me Back’, Supernova used the attention achieved to demonstrate this was far from a one off, and are now recognised as artists and performers of the upmost quality. Their mix ranges from the deep to the soulful, but always keeps the dancefloor firmly in the forefront of its mind, intricately weaving accapellas through tracks like Tapesh & Dyane S Your Love and Jimpster Can’t Stop Loving.
Completing the package is Pirupa, an artist who has built in a short period of time a reputation that takes most artists a lifetime to achieve. The runaway success of Party Non Stop (which won Ibiza Tune of the Year at the 2012 Pacha awards) perhaps exceeded everyone’s expectations, but far from resting on his laurels, Pirupa has pushed forward with his DJing and production, and currently holds an enviable position at the very top of his game. His mix is typically driving; an adrenaline-fuelled rolling take on house music that includes his brand new and exclusive remix of NICe 7’s Basslines Soldiers as well as the unsigned I Still Need You from Paolo Driver & Zoo Bof.
Defected In The House Miami 2013 is the 50th release in the acclaimed In The House series, marking another impressive milestone for the label. As well as the long-running Ibiza and Miami releases, over the years the series has also championed the likes of Masters at Work, Tensnake, Gilles Peterson, Joey Negro and Sandy Rivera during the course of its 10-year history.

The feedback from the night has been incredible; the show was a huge success and we couldn’t have imagined a better was to see in 2013.
Produced and directed by our own Maik Diederen, this video hopefully encapsulates the incredible atmosphere of the night, and looks back at some of the highlights from the previous year; hope you enjoy it.

^1 Hey guys, how are you?
T&B: Hi, All good here! We are constantly on our Introlution album tour and had much fun and great gigs the last weeks.
^2 We heard a sneak peek preview of upcoming release on Kittball Records, must say it sounds great! What is the inspiration behind the song “Lovebreak”?
T&B: There was this crazy girl who talked to us at a party in Munich. She said we gotta check out a young newcomer artist called Milan Euringer. We did and fell in love with his stuff instantly! We invited him and produced the track “Lovebreak” together. It was one of those magical studio moments and after a 2 days session we knew that “Lovebreak” is something special!
^3 Talking of producing, what’s your studio like and what’s the most precious gear part? Do you use a lot of hardware in your studio?
T&B: We still use hardware in our studio. Beside some ancient keyboards and fx boards we love to use “real” instruments like accustic guitars and drums. But most of our work we do with virtual studio technology. The stuff gets better and better and it’s really cool and comfortable to work with. It’s still computer music that we’re making…
^4 Which track that comes from your kitchen you played the most?
T&B Well.. We think that must be “Free Tribe” which was number one on Beatport in 2011. Every night there are people who ask for the track and it feels good to see the crowd going crazy to your “biggest hit”. We also played “Lovebreak” on every summe festival we’ve been to and the reactions were amazing. We’re happy when the crowd accepts new, unheard stuff. It’s like an approval to release it
^5 What influenced you musically whilst growing up, and how has that shaped the sound of what you produce today? What was the first record you ever bought?
T&B: We both have been influenced by The Beatles, The Doors and let’s say Hippie-Music from our parents. The first electronic music that really flashed us when we were kids was The KLF and of course Snap. We founded a punk band in the early 90ies and than got hit by the Techno Wave in 96. Daft Punk, Westbam and The Chemical Brothers became true heroes for us and all these different kinds of music still influence our sound until today..
^6 Is there any new producer that occupies your attention? And what are the biggest barriers that new producers face?
T&B: In the past years producing music, having a label and also DJing became much easier. So there are a lot of new artists, thousands of new releases and many new digital labels. It’s hard to find a way through this ever growing jungle. There are good new acts out there and many many more that maybe shouldn’t make music at all. But that’s just our opinion. We think it’s important to have an idea in your track. Something that catches you. Producing a copy of a copy of a copy might work on the dance floor but is nothing that will really kick ass!
^7 What’s been your best party this year? Any plans for the next year?
T&B: The open air season was great! We had a very nice gig in Barcelona with like 80% girls in the audience and we played in Croatia for the first time which was off the hook! But the winner is our Kittball Records floor at the Juicy Beats Festival in Dortmund. It’s so great to see that people giving you so much love and literally go mad on the floor! Can’t wait for next year!
Also really looking forward to the Soul Tech Festival in Mexico. Never been there before and on Facebook it looks like they are waiting for us…
^8 What advice can you offer to production newbies.
T&B: As mentioned above, it’s important to have an idea. Like a cool vocal, a nice melody or something that grabs your attention. We’re getting loads of demos that have a good sound and nice beats but there’s nothing in it that forces us to release or play it. Everything get’s recycled and copying someone is not a crime. Music ha always been like that but there’s a difference between copying ideas from others like a robot without soul or doing some kind of homage that has your own creativity in it!
But if you really want it the most important issue is to never never never give up!
Big thanks to Tube & Berger for taking their time off to answer our questions! We hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to check their Introlution album which just came out in remixed version!
