About WATERGATE >
Watergate is a split-level, two-room club overlooking the River Spree in Berlin's Kreuzberg neighborhoods. Located on the river's edge with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, it offers a panoramic view of the Spree with curtains that can let the daylight in as the club night winds down. Known for its LED lighting panel that spans the entire length of the top floor of the club, Watergate mostly plays host to house and techno parties. In 2008, it started a record label: Watergate Records.
Tiefschwarz are a German house group consisting of brothers, Alexander "Ali" (June 7, 1967-) and Sebastian "Basti" (December 28, 1969-) Schwarz, which formed in Stuttgart in 1996. Peter Hoff, who runs the Benztown studios in Stuttgart, joined later, and completed the first Tiefschwarz production team. Their name means "deep black" in German, and is a combination of the brothers' surnames, and their love of deep house.
Their sound is considered, at least by those who have followed them from their Classic days, to have changed somewhat over the last few years. Instead of their original deep, mellow house, Tiefschwarz now represent a gritty and edgy electro house sound, their more recent tracks gaining recognition from the likes of Ivan Smagghe, Touché, Sasha and Danny Howells.
Ali and Basti Schwarz have been traveling Europe as DJs since 1995, playing at major events and popular clubs all over Germany and Switzerland, as well as making appearances in Ibiza. They've performed in cities as far afield as Miami, New York, Melbourne, Sydney, Amsterdam, Sarajevo, London, Antwerp, and Stockholm.
Tiefschwarz has composed remixes for Madonna's Get Together, Missy Elliott's Teary Eyed and Depeche Mode's single, John the Revelator.
