After playing on Listed’s boat party Ship of Fools during Miami Music Week, the German duo andhim has become somewhat of an obsession for those who love the deep and sexy sounds of the underground. Since Miami, their mixes and productions have been on repeat. Their speciality is “Super House,” a self-proclaimed genre comprised mostly of samples, alluding to their old-school sensibility that guarantees getting crowds moving.
Simon and Tobias don’t fit today’s typical DJ mold and neither do their sounds. They are a breath of fresh air, bringing a new and infectious energy to the dance floor that is nothing short of Super-Fun.
Well, first of all a big thanks to all the people who danced with us and the continuing awesome feedback on our set. Since it was our first time in Miami and we only had a time slot of 90 minutes we actually played 80% of our own productions. Some unreleased tracks as well. We wanted to present ourselves. This was our preparation.
The Ship Of Fools was actually the only party we went to, since we arrived on Saturday night, but we had a lot of fun the days after. We did a nice Everglades-Air Boar tour and wrestled some Alligators down as well as some hardcore beach activities like swimming and paragliding.
We met at Chat-Roulette!
[Editor’s note: Tobias and Simon live in different cities in Germany at the moment, Cologne and Berlin] [Berlin], It is all about the look: six-pack, shoulder-length hair, coming to the gigs with a Segway. Taste in music or own productions are irrelevant!
True, Super-House is our definition of our style. We thought we should end up with the ridiculous use of all these genre-types and give our style its own name. It is basically just super music which shall make the people feel super as well!
No, not at all! We think Berlin sounds completely different to what we’re doing. Wait a minute…so in the end maybe it had an influence after all.
We’re living in different cities. I’m [Simon] living in Berlin whereas Tobias still lives in our hometown Cologne. It’s mostly sending ideas in and out. If we’re both convinced of a song, we try to finish it together.
We are working with samples like 99% of the time. Old school!
Could be. Simon tells jokes from time to time during the sets, which is kind of a show. But maybe we’ll find a way to express ourselves in an appropriate way eventually. We don’t want to be the next laptop live act!
Festival summer is gonna be a bomb. Unfortunately we won’t play at any US festival but we’ll play Fusion Festival, MELT and Nature One in Germany as well as three shows for Get Physical Music at Privilege (Ibiza), Off Sonar (Barcelona) and a lot of other festivals you probably don’t know. In May there will be our first release on Get Physical named “The Wizard Of Us.” Watch out for that baby!
Hui, that’s tough…Simon: Probably Kriss Kross’ “Jump.” Tobi: Fettes Brot “Mitschnacker.”
