Trick & Kubic are Frank Hermann aka Trick and Lars Niekisch aka Kubic. These two Berlin boys know how to move you with their trademark sound born out of a mix from electro, minimal house and funky basslicks. Riding high on the peak of “New German Dubby Electronic Dirt” (Mixmag), which began its worldwide popularity in 2005 through releases on labels such as Get Physical and Great Stuff Recordings.
Trick & Kubic published their 1st maxi “Can’t Stop,” in the Autunm of 2004 on GSR. This 1st release showed their special and unique talent for production and basslines with more gear changes than a formula one driver. Their 2nd release “Orbital Dance Machine” only confirmed them as truly international players. Fatboy Slims frantic feedback of “YES YES YES, Hurt me baby! Hits the spot big time” still rings in our ears. As a result, Orbital Dance Machine found its way, among other places, on to Fat Boy Slims international mix compilation and was licensed worldwide.
With their 3rd release on GSR, “Easy” managed to break the final international crossover borders. The British dance magazine Mixmag immediately smashed the tune into their top 10 favorite relaeases, which for a German record was still a new feat.
Further releases appeared on the labels PM Music and Sunday Music with the guys releasing under Niekisch & Hermann.
As DJ’s the two started out playing in 2002 at Berlin hotspots like Tresor and Casino, meanwhile the two tour the world playing international dates.
In May 2007, shortly before their next EP “Believe/Container” on GSR, came their first mix compilation on the well known Berlin label Kiddaz FM. And finally, in Autumn 2007, after far too long in the waiting, comes their first studio album to be released on Great Stuff – these exceptionally talented boys from Berlin deliver yet again!
