Substance presents youANDme (Poker Flat | Cocoon) Elysium Bar & Terrace Box Friday January 19
Substance kicks off its first party in 2018 with the return of youANDme (DE) Friday 19 January. With an upcoming album at Poker Flat, releases scheduled at Cocoon and more, Martin Muler is set to flame up the dancefloor again up at the Box on Level 32.
youANDme is deeply engrained in the German electronic music world and especially the international Berlin club scene. Not only are they in the heart of the bohemian capital for techno, they also serve a greater role as its artery, pumping blood through its veins with their labels as the valves. This has made them international transplants, playing gigs and festivals around the world in cultural hubs like New York, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Singapore, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul.
They have been in demand by top brands such as Space Ibiza, Sonar Festival in Barcelona, KaZantip Festival in Crimea, Panorama Bar / Berghain in Berlin, D-Edge in Sao Paulo and many more.
As the owners of Rotary Cocktail Recordings, Polymorph, CUTZ.ME, and three other mysterious imprints, they provide a steady flow of music and talent from Germany to the rest of the world. As DJs and producers, their music runs inherently deep, with a raw and kicking signature. The ideas of funk and soul serve as its backbone across styles like house, techno, dub, and electronica. Some of today's most recognized labels have taken note, with youANDme releases making their way onto Cocoon, Rekids, Pokerflat, Compost, Rebirth, and more bespoke efforts like Ornaments.
Apart from original productions, they're also well known for their remixes and edits, having done official work for original house music heroes like Moodymann, Robert Owens, and Paul Johnson or contemporary powerhouses such as Radio Slave, Seth Troxler, Steve Bug, and Lawrence. 2015 currently holds another release for Cocoon and a new outing on Desolat with a remix from the label boss himself, Loco Dice.
Whether through their productions, labels, or gigs, youANDme have proven that, with a little bit of heart, and a lot of soul, doors will open, crowds will come, dance floors will fill, and the speakers will pound for these ambassadors of their city, country, and the music as a whole.
