Love The Machines by Märtini Brös

A lot of water ran down the river Spree since DJ Clé and Mike Vamp resigned from their gym. Love The Machines is the adventure report of two Discopilots from Berlin, who moved out into the world to find their fortune and who returned into their studio with a bag full of gold, lipstick on their cheeks and a blistering hangover. How everything started (since '98): The combination of robot-romanticism, rock-appeal and metal sheet-processing was blowing like a warm fan through the undercooled Techno-cellars of Berlin. This was really necessary at that time as the drugs wouldn't last for another night of boredom, as people have been punished by the same loops over and over again. One was bethinking of the Märtini Brös - the new reason to hang out all night and one was spending even more time with the girlfriend. The songs were hearty, funny and cool as german-english lyrics can be. After their legendary live-performance at the Popkomm-fair the big media interest broke out. DJ Clé turned into DJ Clé and Mike Vamp turned into Mike Vamp. The two have been cool and well known before, but with their debut album Pläy under the pillow they slept more often in a hotel than at home. They have been visiting the entire club-equator and showed the people out there what it means to fläsh and that they do so the entire weekend and consequently everybody wanted to Dance Like It Is OK. The video has even been nominated for the German Dance Awards. Remixes by TokTok and DJ Koze were to follow and the whole Electro-world was grinning over to Germany. More remix requests followed by Tiga, Ivan Smagghe, Mr. Brooks and Detroit Grand Pubahs, who carried the sound further around the globe. The Märtini Brös became internationally demanded artists. It's been a ferocious time. The postcards they sent to friends and family at home had drink coupons attached instead of stamps. Then they returned to their backyard studio in Berlin. And they did it again. With their machines. The second album - the gröund shakes: The Märtini wine-cooler has become more fruity and consists of even more types of music and instruments. With Clé's musical multi-profession and Mike's programming-rage the two already eased out all demons of boredom while making the tracks. Here is the Märtini Brös orchestra playing and all DJs are deejaying at the same time. From all the Rock and Pop of the 80's in Traveller there's already nothing left in Smile when Clé is petting the guitar and everything sounds so unbelievably Sixties. Tracks like the first single out-take Love The Machine, Chicken Claw or High Risin' are referring to the old approved machinetactics to squeeze out the last sweatdrop out of the busiest dancers. Love The Machines works between bathroom, bed and dancefloor. The wise arrangement of mood oscilations lets you experience the album as a full romantic piece of art. This would have been rather difficult with german lyrics that's why the Brös. sing in english now, while german lyrics run for cover on a black, red and golden treadmill. After their second breaking of the voice they now sound more mature and international in all meanings. With their new album the Märtini Brös awake from yesterday and recall their journey to success track by track. At best they recall the Girl That Pulled The Plug who really pulled the plug during one of their shows at the Subway in Cologne. Instead of hiring her for further contributions to their performance they invited Eric D. Clark in their studio for the Finale Grande on track 13, which will travel from disco to disco shortly: Big And Dirty! PS: For the cover foto the boys went into the darkroom of the Connection club in Berlin.
