Tune Brothers

Great DJs always meet the same demands: with passion and love for the music they delight masses of people every weekend. They fly thousands of miles and project their tireless enthusiasm onto the public. During the week, as producers of club hits, as remixers, as record label operators and as radio broadcasters, they truly make their presence felt in the dance world … just like the Tune Brothers from Stuttgart.


The Tune Brothers, whose real names are Markus Hägele and Matthias Kraus, have overcome all obstacles with flying colours. The two DJs rapidly reached the top of the local Stuttgart scene shark tank in the 1990s.


From the start, their success has been based on a common appreciation of all the different types of house music combined with the right party vibe… always working intuitively and back to back the whole night.


In doing this, the Tune Brothers flawlessly create a multi-layered house set: this ranges from Vocal to Electro, from Deep to Tech and also includes Minimal-Style House music.

Their fans are grateful – in 2000 they receive the Prinz Nightlife Award in the category ‘Best DJ’. At around this time, the Tune Brothers set up the multi-medial platform ‘Housesession’: a network made up of a record label , a radio show and organized events.


They demonstrate their expertise at national and international gigs and work their way up to a place in the headliner circus.

As well as at the most important festivals (SonneMondSterne, Solar, Dance Sofia, Nature One, Love Parade), the Tune Brothers have been invited to play at all of the prestigious House Clubs in the world. Their steps have been getting bigger, the distances further and further apart.


Always on a tight schedule, they rush from one continent to the next and through the glittering and glamorous nightlife of international cities such as London, Moscow, Kiew, Zürich, Vienna, Ibiza, Caracas, Sofia and Berlin.


The Tune Brothers are resident DJs at the Munich hotspot ‘Pacha’ and are also an integral part of the ‘In Bed with Space’ party team on Ibiza. Since the millennium, the House-Mekka has been a fixed point in their itinerary every year. They also play in clubs, such as Space, Amnesia and Bora Bora.


By means of the Housesession network and running parallel to their DJ careers, over the last 10 years and beyond, the two Tune Brothers have worked their way up. They have a reputation around the world as authentic and highly-skilled label-owners, radio broadcasters, music producers and remixers. In their work, they are men of vision and act according to the motto ‘think globally’. It is important for them not only to consider the German scene – they focus on internationality.


The Housesession Radio Show, which was launched in the year 2000 on the Das Ding radio station for young people, is now broadcasted by 20 radio stations in 8 countries (Germany, England, Spain, Poland, Canada, Belgium, Rumania and Bulgaria). Guests such as David Guetta, Deep Dish or Bob Sinclair have been hosted on the show.


Due to the perfectly-executed A&R work of the Tune Brothers, Housesession Records was able to establish itself around the middle of this decade. In addition to releases by big names such as Armand van Helden, Michael Gray or DJ Sneak, they came across new rising stars all over the world like Ian Carey,Tv Rock, Micha Moor, John Dahlback and Patric La Funk who have given a new buzz to the world of House. Up till now, with far more than 30 releases (most of them accompanied by Tune Brothers remixes), Housesession Records has played its part in helping House music to constantly modify and further advance itself.


In their studio work with the experienced producer, Peter Hoff, the Tune Brothers combine the impressions they receive from a club night with their own experience as DJs. And the results are absolutely fit for prime-time audiences.


Since their debut single ‚Mr. Roboto’, the Tune Brothers have focussed strongly on producing and remixing. Releases which followed, such as ‘Sereneta’, ‘I like it’, ‘Dirty’, Nasty’ or ‘Make Your Body Pop’ , including collaborations with Tyree Cooper and MC Flipside or else remixes for Craig David, Crystal Method, Funkerman, Armand van Helden, John Dahlback, Eddie Thoneick, Michael Gray and DJ Sneak achieved the top positions in international dance charts.


And even more importantly, because of the continuous rotation in playlists of DJs, such as David Guetta, Laidback Luke, DJ Chus, Markus Schulz, Aaron Ross, Syke’n’Sugarstarr and many others, the Tune Brothers’ tracks have become club anthems all over the world. Support from radio shows like Defected Radio, Big City Beats, Fuck Me I’m Famous or Sunshine Live have accelerated this process.


In the meantime, the different musical phases of the Tune Brothers have been documented onto 9 mixed CD compilations (often double CDs).If you took the time to listen to all of the CDs one after the other, you wouldn’t find any sudden breaks or blatant alterations in style – on the contrary, there is a continuous flow which finds its own way. Thus, being an excellent DJ is NOT about copying others, but rather it involves constant further development. The Tune Brothers have always been faithful to this motto.
