Andreas has an Interresting career so far. He started playing music late 90’s and played on the biggest festivals and clubs all around the Globe.

Leeuwarden (Holland) is his homebase for the music. Together with some close friends Andreas started a party organization in 2004 named ‘Arthouse’. This organization concentrates on deephouse, techhouse and techno. Or as we say it: ‘Cutting Edge House Music’. The monthly Nights at Doozo (Leeuwarden) are not only popular for the music but even more for the ambience Arthouse creates and were he became Resident Dj.

To bring his productions skills to the next level, Andreas locked himself up in the studio for some time. This resulted in a more techy, yet deep sound. In 2007 he joined the label Klopfgeist. He released a number of tr..

To bring his productions skills to the next level, Andreas locked himself up in the studio for some time. This resulted in a more techy, yet deep sound. In 2007 he joined the label Klopfgeist. He released a number of tracks like: ‘I Want To Buy A Dog (including a Lauhaus Remix), ‘Slippery When Wet’ or ‘The Big Hangover’ which gained lots of support with Artist like Richie Hawtin, Magda, Troy Pierce and many others.

Andreas Launched Moral Fiber, a record label on the love for electronic music, early 2012. What previously went under the name Progressive House, now evolved to Tech House and Deep Techno without losing its forwards thinking spirit. Moral Fiber and her artist will continue to create something meaningful for electronic music enthusiasts. It’s no wonder Moral Fiber means doing what is right, no matter what the circumstance..

Nowadays Andreas is Resident Dj of one of the best underground clubs in Holland called ‘Paradigm’ (www.paradigm050.com), and start his own Night called ‘Framed’.

Tzinah Records: To start with, please, recommend us something to listen to while we go through this interview. It can be anything.

Tzinah Records: Could you remember when and where have you felt it for the first time that you were to become a music artist?

Andreas Bergmann:At young age I visit school party’ s like every other young kid. I saw and learn how the dj connected with the people on the dancefloor and what influences It had playing certain tunes….The wrong or wright record. For me it was the moment to try it myself, see what the audience thought about my music!

Tzinah Records: Why did you choose to create and play this particular type of music? Are there any artists that touched you deeply while developing your own style?

Andreas Bergmann: The music I play and produce at the moment growed in years I guess. I mean I always had love for the deeper kind of house. Maybe more tribal/techno, but still it was deep.

Tzinah Records: Please, briefly, describe for us, the current state of the underground music scene in the place you come from. Is it any good?

Andreas Bergmann: Off course the scene in Groningen is amazing. ( I think Dan Primaru agrees J). Its Holland its one of a few city’s were this music is really apreciated. We invited dj’s like Rhadoo , Petre Insprescu and even had a Tzinah showcase….there I rest my case :P, No but serious , it has a great platform for big and talented artist.

Tzinah Records: Without giving out too much about your secret weapons, please tell us how does the magic work in your production routine. Software? Analog? What does your DJ set-up imply?

Andreas Bergmann: As a producer I work in Cubase , now and then I try some analog stuff. My favorite djsetup is 2 x technics, 2 x cdj2000 xone or pioneer, and monitor on right side J

Tzinah Records: What are the aspects of your daily life that are influencing the shape and sound of the music that you currently make?

Andreas Bergmann: For me is cooking as important for me as making music. If I don’t find creativity in music, I try it in making some proper food.

Tzinah Records: Which underground house DJ or producer would you love to take out for a summer picnic? With which artist (from any music genre) would you spend 24 hours stuck in an elevator?

Andreas Bergmann: Actually I was playing on Malta a couple of weeks ago , and I share a cab and Ferry with Valentino Kanzyani , he is a really nice guy, and like to talk more about music with him.

Tzinah Records: Have you already played in your most-dreamed about venue? Which one is that?

Andreas Bergmann: I am honoured that I’m resident dj in one of the best underground clubs in Holland called Paradigm. All ingredients of a true underground party are there.

Tzinah Records: What motivates you to be an active part of the underground movement?

Andreas Bergmann: That there is no pressure from the outside world…I mean, no fancy stuff , no advertising..just purist that are there to connect with other people that are there for the music.

Tzinah Records: What’s your favorite type of breakfast?

Andreas Bergmann: Breakfast Is very important for me. I grew up with that my mother was screaming me out of bed on Sunday morning BREAKFAAAAAAST…hangover or not, I was there. A boiled egg, some fresh orange juice, roastbeef and cheese was my perfect breakfast

What do you do when the music is not playing?

Andreas Bergmann: I’m busy running my own label Called Moral Fiber, I work a few days for a mobile company, I fitness 2, 3 times a week, spend some time with my girlfriend or friends and like I said before…I love to cook. J

Tzinah Records: What’s the story behind your Tzinah Family Podcast? How did you record it and are there released or unreleased tracks?

Andreas Bergmann:  Some months ago Dan asked me to do a remix for He Did, off course I couldn’t refuse. I’m glad he asked me to do a podcast as well, its a mix of a few unreleased tracks , some vinyl’s and classic tracks!

Tzinah Records: Are there any of your plans/upcoming projects that you would like to share with us? Where can we see you play next?

Andreas Bergmann: In October you can catch me at ADE or the 25th of October in London. Or stop by at Paradigm anytime ;)

Tzinah Records: Supposing you come back reading this interview in 10 years from now; could you try saying something to your future-self?
