Dole & Kom
It is1993 when Dole meets Kom in Berlin’s Delirium record store, where both work as vinyl dealers. Complementary music taste and an evolving friendship are the basis for numerous mutual DJ gigs at all the mayor clubs around, like Tresor, E-Werk or WMF. Producing under the moniker Clubheroes, their first single ‘Dum Dum’ is released on Chicago’s prestigious Relief Records. Also, they join the artist roster of legendary Formaldehyd Records. The own label BCC Music is the next step in their artistic career. Founded in 1996, it is the creative launching pad for a massive output. The duo’s probably most famous project is Studio 45 with tracks being released on Azuli, Nervous Records and David Morales’ Definity Records. Under the name Studio 45, Dole & Kom play DJ and live sets all around the world, the title ‘Freak It’ even hits the Top 40 in the UK. In 2004 Dole & Kom start another label: Death By Disco.

Their refined productions raise more and more interest within the scene, various EPs are released on labels like Bondage Music, Tsuba, Force Tracks, Schatten, Ostwind, Superfancy and Session Deluxe. Just before the year 2011 comes to an end, ‘New Jack Nation’, featuring the vocals of Chicago’s House music legend Tyree Cooper, hits the clubs. With their unique and independent style Dole & Kom match the musical ideal of Acker Records perfectly. There, they release their EP "Trompetenkrähe". 2012 they become an inherent part of the 3000° ensemble, perform at the legendary Wanderzirkus, Fusion, the 3000°Festival, SOS U.Ground, Wannda Land, Thuishaven Festival (NL), Lethargie Festival (CH), Kee Club (HK), KB 18 (DK) and the successful 3000° Records Clubtour.
