Klingande at El Rey Theatre – September 6th
Klingande was formed in December of 2012 by Cédric and Edgar, two 24-year-olds from Croix in northern France, after being united by their love of electronic artists such as Klangkarussell, Bakermat and Nico Pusch.
Cédric studied music theory as a child, but later became immersed in electronic music as a teenager; initially a DJ, he soon also began to work on his own original productions. Edgar first started playing the piano at the age of sixteen and was so enamoured that he spent four years studying the instrument. The pair first met at school at the age of ten, but reconnected late in 2012 when Cédric returned from a spell in London and made fresh contact with his old friend.
Klingande have spent much of the year touring throughout all over Europe. The second single to be released in mainland Europe is ‘Punga’, another track which features his distinctive house-meets-saxophone sound and also earned a huge online following.
Klingande is now represented by Cedric, who spend much of his time between stages, planes and his studio in Lille (FR). New singles and EP are coming this year, with some surprises.
JackLNDN is a British disco producer with the ability to instantly capture the attention of anyone within listening range. The burgeoning artist spent his youth immersed in musical studies, training vigorously while perfecting his ability to sing, write music, and master instruments like piano and guitar. Now he translates these skills to unleashing visceral and cutting edge dance music upon the world, digger deeper into the craft he obsesses over with every waking moment. The 20-year old initially garnered traction by applying his Midas touch to songs from fellow electronic artists, successfully taking on Daft Punk, Porter Robinson, and a prize winning Cazzette remix while leaving behind a trail of blissful faces wherever his upbeat production ended up. In February he released his debut EP to massive praise from blogs (GottaDanceDirty, DancingAstronaut, The Untz, Thisongissick) and fans alike, proving he could make something from nothing with the best of them. The sky is undoubtedly the limit for LNDN, and it’s only a matter of time before the whole world is chanting his name.
