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.
They have published their tracks and mixes at labels like Rotary Cocktail Recordings, Ornaments, Cocoon, Rekids, Pokerflat, Desolat, 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, Steve Bug, Timo Maas, Robert Owens, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Brothers Vibe, Paul Johnson, Mark Broom, 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 2 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 VÃ¤th 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 VÃ„TH, 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 it. Furthermore youANDme did remixes for KOLLEKTIV TURMSTRASSE or JOHANNES HEIL and they released a record on the Detroit based label DEEPLABS.
In June 2013 ORNAMENTS released the album youAND:THEMACHINES - "BEHIND". Martin’s debut LP was received with tremendous appreciation as a laudable achievement in brooding and physical machine music from all over the world. There was also a remix request for Timo Maas his new album and the youANDme remix was the best sold track of Timo's label ROCKETS & PONIES in 2013.
A year after the release of Martin's "Behind" LP youAND:THEMACHINES presented a collection of selected edits, interpretations and remixes courtesy of a prestigious roster of distinguished producers including Matthew Herbert, Steve Bug, XDB, Boo Williams, Sascha Dive, Legowelt, Marko Fürstenberg & Luke Hess and Basic Soul Unit amongst many more. Steve Bug asked the guys if they want to remix his track "Pelican Glide" for the 150 anniversary release of POKERFLAT RECORDINGS which was released in June 2014. youANDme's label Rotary Cocktail Recordings celebrated their TEN YRS birthday in August 2014 and therefore they have created the compilation "youANDme presents: BEST OF TEN YRS ROTARY COCKTAIL RECORDINGS" where you can find many of their personal favourites.
The future is unwritten...
