Hamburg, Germany has become a serious hotbed for electronic dance music in recent years. It's home to house and techno luminaries such as Tensake, Stimming, and Lovebirds, as well as esteemed labels like Diynamic and Liebe*Detail.
Another pair of Hamburg residents, Florian Kruse and Nils Nürnberg, have been making major waves in the international deep house scene since the turn of the decade.
Kruse, who happens to be the brother of celebrated DJ-producer Vincenzo, has been releasing records since the late '00s on top house labels like OM and Urbantorque. Meanwhile, Nϋrnberg's work has graced the catalogs of Liebe*Detail and 8bit. Some of their most incendiary releases, though, have been in collaboration, even scoring them a spot on Milton Jackson and Shur-I-Kan's Dark Energy imprint and Nick Warren's 2008 Global Underground compilation mix.
Don't miss out on the Hamburg power duo's Miami debut at Electric Pickle this Sunday night, where they'll be throwing down with an all-star cast of local house DJs including Danny Daze, Will Renuart, Brad Strickland, and Inbal.
