Following his debut in the Top 100 DJs poll in 2022, German DJ and producer Cuebrick returns for the second year running — rising six places. Since breaking out in 2014 with the hit ‘Watch Out’ with The Disco Boys, which nabbed the top spot in the German Dance Charts for seven weeks, the evolving producer has released his proggy sounds on labels like Smash The House, Spinnin’ Records, Revealed Recordings, Enhanced Recordings, Ultra and Armada Music. On the cusp of summer this year, Cuebrick collaborated with rising star Isaac Palmer on ‘Higher’, fusing EDM flavours and catchy tech-house grooves — primed for festival season. Released on Maxximize (a sub-label of Spinnin’ Records), the track reached a vast audience, and rightly so.
2023 was a busy year for Cuebrick. Milestone moments include his UK debut at Creamfields, touring China and helming a summer residency at Noa Beach Club in Zrce, Croatia. Additionally, he played packed-out club shows in Wave in Taipei, House Manila, Warp in Tokyo and many more. When he’s not touring or holed up in the studio, find Cuebrick on bigFM’s nitroX show, aka the most prominent radio platform for electronic music in Germany, for all things big room, prog and beyond.
