All good music should tell a story. Tales of experience. Tales of joy. Tales of love lost and won. A Tale of Us.

Tale of Us are Berlin-based DJ and production partnership Karm and Matteo who are currently re-writing the rulebook for deeply moving, emotional electronic music. Together they share a sonic vision that pulls together elements of house and techno with influences from pop, nu-disco and even rock music. While all of their productions are instantly recognisable as Tale Of Us, these range from straight-up dance floor jams to low-slung ambient tracks and more abstract compositions. Already regular fixtures at clubs like Watergate and Weekend in Berlin, Tenax in Florence, Barraca In Valencia and DC10 in Ibiza they have grown up throwing secret loft parties called ‘Just This’, in their hometown of Milan. While both originally hail from North America, Karm was born in Toronto and Matteo in New York, they moved to Italy as children, which is where they met and formed the close working bond that they now share.

At present they are based in Berlin, an inspirational frontier, which has given them numerous opportunities to build relationships with fellow musicians who share their unique musical outlook. At the forefront of these like-minded visionaries are Seth Troxler, Shaun Reeves, Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss, who have been passionate supporters of Tale of Us since they first heard their music; so much so that they released Tale Of Us’ debut EP release on their new ‘Visionquest’ label this spring.

Prior to this, Karm and Matteo had already released tracks on labels such as 'Barraca Music' and 'Life & Death' and had put out various remix collaborations with fellow 'Visionquest' label mates Shaun Reeves & Ryan Crosson. In particular the Tale Of Us remix of Thugfucker ‘Disco Gnome’ on 'Life and Death' was hailed by Mixmag as one best records of 2010. Their next remix on the horizon sees the duo try their hand at something totally different, with a standout remix of a track from the upcoming album of the rock band 'Who Made Who' which fuses together both rock and techno, managing to create something incredibly raw and poignant.

Upcoming events will see them perform both live & DJ sets at locations around the world including the Visionquest showcase at the Shelborne in Miami during WMC, the Detroit Movement Festival (DEMF) and Sonar in Barcelona. They are also booked to play at Klubber's Day in Madrid, Fiesta Privada in Rome, Elita Festival in Milan and many other quality venues throughout Europe.

Guy Gerber has always been comfortable as an outsider. From being the rock kid at the rave, to the Israeli DJ on the European club circuit, to the electronic producer with a fetish for live instruments, he tends to skirt the edge of whatever scene he's in. It's a position that suits him well-so far it has led to dozens of lush, melodic records, an ever- evolving live act and his own label, Supplement Facts. This nonconformist attitude, combined with the emotional content of his art (so rare in today's electronic music), explains how Gerber keeps his audience locked in, be it on record or on stage.

Before he was fiddling with drum machines and synths, Gerber was all about groups like Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine. These influences still echo clearly in his music today, especially in his use of harmony, contemplative moods and trippy, shoegaze- inspired sounds. It's a style that's anything but conventional, yet one that quickly drew in some of Europe's most popular labels; three years after his recording debut, Gerber released the first of several records on John Digweed's Bedrock imprint. A couple of years later, Sven Väth signed him to Cocoon, eventually releasing his album Late Bloomers. All the while, he was building Supplement Facts from the ground up, showcasing his own productions alongside those by likeminded artists, and illustrating each record sleeve by hand, so each release embodied his distinct creative panache.

These days Gerber has the kind of artistic freedom he's always wanted, and it shows. Supplement Facts is more adventurous than ever, melding organic with electronic sounds. Meanwhile, he's embarked on his most unexpected project yet: an album with P Diddy, who hired him for some remixes and took him on more permanently after hearing the results. Now the hip-hop icon flies Gerber out to his studio in LA to work, where he gives him “2000% artistic freedom." The experience has been transformative. ”Something opened my mind out there," says Gerber, noting how his approach to music has changed. For one, his rock roots are seeping back in; despite being named one of RA's top 10 acts of the year, he's scrapping his laptop for something more “live,” playing bass guitar over drum machines, and remembering the importance of lyrics. It's impossible to say where all of this is headed, but with a talent as bold and unorthodox as Gerber's, it couldn't happen any other way.
Tickets also available at Beatstreet Records [439 Hastings St] and Zulu Records [1972 W 4th Ave]
