Jack The Box are Berlin-based House music producers and DJs Tyree Cooper and Bobby Starrr. Cooper’s and Starrr’s undeniable charisma and enthusiasm for deep, Chicago inspired yet contemporary house music and their flawless track record of successful parties as a DJ duo has garnered them a distinguished reputation among a remarkably high caliber of crowd-pleasers. With Jack The Box they now fuse their long-term collaboration into one sound that reflects each of the artists’ background: Chicago inspired traditional House music with a fresh and contemporary Berlin vibe. The charismatic duo met in 2007 and soon realized that despite each artist owning a strong identity, they perfectly complement each other’s style. It was soon decided to convey this into one sound collage of House. With the success of their party franchises in Berlin, the natural progression was to produce together. The project’s name, Jack The Box, an homage to the Chicago house scene, was found shortly after. Collaborations with the likes of Bam of the Jungle Brothers and Lady Blacktronika on their debut album “Side A” (Moodmusic), are evidence that the duo has been given a warm welcome from the underground House scene. Already “The Way We Walk”, feature track of their first single collaboration: “Jack the Box presents: The Tyree Cooper and Bobby Starrr E.P.”, was greeted with kudos by the house scene in September 2012 and is followed by a four pack remix EP of the track in February 2014. “Pon de Underground (Dingeman Remix)” on the second single output was selected for Defected Records’ hit summer compilation “Loco Dice in the House”. With their underground club night franchise ‘Lunar Phase’, DJ Tyree Cooper and DJ Bobby Starrr celebrate the evolution of a musical genre and provoke such inspiration and shifting of the paradigm. For Lunar Phase, the two artists seek out talent who inspire the evolution of the genre and the very specific and ever evolving taste buds of Berlin’s underground scene. The franchise aims to select guest DJs that inspire the duo’s personal artistic vision. It held residency at Kater Holzig, Loftus Hall and Kleine Reise before its voluntary hiatus in 2013 due to the heavy promotion and tour schedule surrounding the album release. Lunar Phase is planned to return in form of one-off events at different locations in 2014. As DJ Bobby Starrr and DJ Tyree Cooper, they are bringing back House to Berlin’s legendary Techno club Tresor with their monthly residency ‘e·man·ci·pate’. The franchise has seen a variety of guest artists that have left a distinctive mark in the history of House music or whose current work is so extraordinary, that they are bound to become classics in the future, such as Lil Louis, Terrence Parker, Tom Trago, Nicholas and Farley Jackmaster Funk. In 2009 Bobby Starrr and Tyree Cooper were approached by Sweatlodge Radio to host a weekly radio show which Bobby Starrr continued to curate until early in 2014. Regular pan-European co-hosts of the show were Tyree Cooper broadcasting from Yuma Bar; Joost Dulac, broadcasting from Soundfreax in Amsterdam; and DJ Upi, broadcasting from various clubs, bars and even saunas in Helsinki. Featured in-house guests included Mandel Turner (New York, Paris), Red Rack’em (Nottingham), Joe Babylon (San Jose), DJ Toh (Tokyo), and Bryan Agent Pepper (Paris). Further highlights invited by the duo to perform at their various events were DJ Yellow (Paris), K’Alexi Shelby (Chicago), Dole and Kom (Berlin), Peter Power (Dublin), Terry Farley (London), Filippo ‘Naughty’ Moscatello (Berlin), Charles Webster (Nottingham), Frankie Valentine (London), and Dan Curtain (Cleveland).
