youANDme is a project of Martin and Daniel and both live in Berlin / Germany. They work as DJs and producers since 1995. Both love the deeper side of music with many funk and soul, but every time raw and kicking. The structure of a youANDme set is very different; they like to play several styles in one set like house, techno, dub or electronica.
Martin and Daniel have published their tracks and mixes at labels like ORNAMENTS, COCOON, REKIDS, COMPOST, PLATZHIRSCH, REBIRTH, 2020VISION and many others.
youANDme are well known for their remixes and edits. They did official works for artists like Moodymann, Radio Slave, Seth Troxler, Lawrence, Brothers Vibe, Robert Owens, Timo Maas, Paul Johnson, Mark Broom, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Johannes Heil, Florian Meindl, Pascal Feos or Pirupa.
A next step was the establishment of an own label and therefore youANDme created ROTARY COCKTAIL REC, POLYMORPH, CUTZ.ME and 3 other mysterious labels.
2009 was a successfull year because youANDme published some nice records and one highlight was the licencing of “Mind/Feeling” (youANDme Edit) to Sven Väth his “The Sound Of The 10th Season” live mix at Amnesia DVD (Cocoon Mix 027).
youANDme published their first official mix-cd “ORNAMENTS SYMPHONY” in 2010 and they got great reactions and press feedbacks like “ALBUM OF THE MONTH” or “DE:BUG 2010 – OUR RECORDS OF THE YEAR” at the important german “DE:BUG” magazine. The youANDme record “I LIKE” was also “SINGLE OF THE MONTH” at the “DE:BUG” magazine in June 2010.
2011 started with a release for the COCOON label of SVEN VÄTH, a remix for MOODYMANN on ORNAMENTS and 4 remixes for RADIO SLAVE on REKIDS & CUTZ.ME. The remix for Moodymann was “RECORD OF THE MONTH (HOUSE)” [05/11] and a remix for Rhauder was “RECORD OF THE MONTH (TECHNO)” [08/11] at the german RAVELINE magazine.
2012 was the year of the album production of Martin`s solo project youAND:THEMACHINES and he had spent every free minute in the studio to finish the “BEHIND” LP which will be published as ORNAMENTS 027 (06/2013). Furthermore youANDme did remixes for KOLLEKTIV TURMSTRASSE or JOHANNES HEIL and they released a record on the Detroit based label DEEPLABS.
The future is unwritten…
