DHA Mix #249 By KlangKuenstler

Published On 05/12/2016 | DJ Mix

Talent isn’t just a matter of luck and Berlin’s KlangKuenstler embodies this idea to a tee.

Originally influenced through Munich’s renowned Harry Klein, it has been over the last three years that this DJ has become one of Germany’s most promising House artists. With a passion for groove and basslines, KlangKuenstler’s many talents include DJing, as well as live sets embodying a multi personality approach to music.

This approach has seen early career releases on Stil Vor Talent (where he returned this past November for the massive ‘Rise Against the Arp’) and Soundplate, with more recent releases coming by way of Toolroom, Suara, Simma Black, Smiley Fingers, and Great Stuff, while his DJing has seen him man the decks of Watergate, Egg, Razzmatazz, Hive, Pratersauna, and Live RCA with festival appearances at the likes of Global Gathering, SonneMondSterne, Bestival, Dockville, and Mystic Garden.

Within KlangKeunstler’s canon, wether the BBC radio 1 supports ‘Hand in Hand,’ his milestone debut album ‘That’s Me,’ or his recent Beatport Tech House #1 ‘Jam Master Jack,’ it is evident he is not afraid to experiment and step away from the common trends that so often define dance music, which is more evident than ever on today’s exclusive mix.

‘Rise Against The Arp’ is NOW AVAILABLE on Stil Vor Talent.
