Straight outta ‘Hamburg house city’, Adana Twins helped secure their home’s reputation for deep grooves with a series of early EPs that have made them among the most buzz-worthy acts to emerge from the German media capital. Placing repeatedly in the pole position on both Resident Advisor and Beatport charts, the duo of Take It Easy and Friso have found their way into the record bags and Traktor set-ups of the world’s top DJs, while comfortably establishing their own sound where sleek beats and clever sampling are only a small piece of a bigger musical vision that began to form during a previous era.
This appreciation for deeper beats soon found its way into the duo’s all-night DJs gigs, which allowed them to buck the trend of the times by playing all styles and tempos. They quickly established a residency at famed Reeperbahn club Baalsaal soon where they could incorporate the full range of dance music over eight to ten hour sets. These popular JEUDI (French for Thursday) nights inspired Take It Easy to launch a label of the same name with Doctor Dru, committed to providing music for DJs who, like the Twins themselves, wanted a fun-yet-sophisticated sound that would stand out, even amongst their Hamburg peers.
Perfectly poised to seize the opportunity, Adana Twins delivered their first hits, “Everyday” and “Strange”, on Exploited in 2012, to a global scene that was ready to look in Hamburg’s direction. The tracks would go international, being played by the likes of A-Trak, Pete Tong, Soul Clap, and Wolf+Lamb to name just a few, and would lead to remix requests for labels such as Get Physical, Noir Records and Kitsune.
