Milk & Sugar In 5 Records
German house music producers and record label owners Milk & Sugar aka Mike ‘Milk’ Kronenberger and Steven ‘Sugar’ Harding, have enjoyed a fantastic career to date since their worldwide house classics ‘Let The Sun Shine’ and ‘Love Is In The Air’.
The two Munich based producers have been collaborating on music together for over 20 years, with their Milk & Sugar moniker and label kicking off in 1997. We sat down with Mike and Steven to discuss the key releases that really stand out for the label and why, as we learn about Milk & Sugar In 5 Records.
Robbie Rivera preents. Rhythm Bangers – Bang (Bini & Martini Remix)
This track was Miami’s hype track of the year 2000 and the first international breakthrough of our label. It might have been the last convention at the Fountainbleu Hotel before WMC moved to the National Hotel for more space. We will always remember that we signed the contract with Robbie in our hotel room and after that went out to the Cameo club dancing to an amazing DJ set from Knee Deep.
Bel Amour – Bel Amour (Milk & Sugar Remix)
Our Ibiza track of summer 2001. We visited Frank Keller from Bel Amour at La Suite in Paris where he played at that time and convinced him and his label to sign it with us. We were really happy to get the rights of this anthem track for our label.
Tim Deluxe feat Sam Obernik – It Just Won’t Do (Original Mix)
Ibiza track of summer 2002 and one of the biggest Space terrace crowd pleasers of that season. It’s one of our all-time favorite house classics.
Milk & Sugar – Higher & Higher (David Morales Remix)
Higher & Higher was the door opener to our international DJ career back in 1999. Flashback to Miami’s WMC in 1999 when all of our vinyl promos got stuck at customs awaiting clearance. Finally, at WMC’s last day, the package arrived at our hotel and there was no time to label the test pressings properly. We were a bit surprised as the supposed B-Side ‘Higher & Higher’ appeared in a couple of DJ charts – obviously due to the lack of labelling our promos! People just picked the track that they seemed to like most and that was this one.
Harry Choo Choo Romero – Mongobonix (Original Mix)
We licensed this track for our label in 2004, because we felt it needed a remix and the sound of the original vinyl pressing seemed a bit dull. This was at a time when the right pressing plant and the right mastering for vinyl could make the difference to have a hit or not. Luckily our set-up here in Germany proved to be excellent for this challenge.
