You may have witnessed a therapy session (or two) with Above & Beyond during one of their next level performances, but electronica newcomers Tube & Berger are taking the live music experience to a whole new level with their latest compilation ‘Deeper Sessions.’
Just dropped on Armada, the esoterically techno charged collection will go on the road when the duo treks across the US starting tomorrow, pit stops in D.C., Miami, New York and Los Angeles and more.
Luckily DJ Mag USA didn’t get just a sad slice of cheese when we sat down with Tube & Berger recently, but rather a huge plate of deep dish about their tour essentials and buzz kills. Read below to get a huge helping of the hippie house insider details.
DJ Mag: Three essential tour items you don’t leave home without?
Tube & Berger: Sunglasses, phones and a good book.
Three tracks you’re most looking to dropping?
‘Greyjoy’ by Tube & Berger vs. P.A.C.O., ‘If’ by Few Nolder, and a super secret bootleg you can ONLY hear at our gigs.

Choice of on tour refreshment?
Water (sometimes mixed with vodka).
Party into the night or back to the hotel?
Depends on a few factors. People, our moods, enough sleep the night before…

Be late and in a hurry.
Most memorable tour experience?
Missing a connection flight and...
What one thing would you love on your rider but are too afraid/polite to ask for?
