Meet the Saturday night headliner of BangOn! NYC’s 10th Anniversary celebration – Klingande [Q+A]

Meet the Saturday night headliner of BangOn! NYC’s 10th Anniversary celebration – Klingande [Q+A]Klingande 08 1

It’s that time again where costumed revelers come out to rave. A time where the best DJs take over venues and warehouses to host a gigantic costume party. BangOn! NYC stands out this spooky season as a key place to celebrate for 2018.  The brand is honoring its Warehouse of Horrors’ 10th Anniversary with a two-night Halloween bash, complete with full production and a haunted manor to amplify the mood.

Hosted at its usual location in Brooklyn, the weekend lineup does not disappoint, inviting guests like Gramatik and Walker + Royce on October 26, and Space Jesus and Klingande on October 27 to its signature Earth and Fire stages. Dancing Astronaut was able to sit down and speak with one of the Saturday headliners, Klingande, about collaborations, favorite plugins and of course, new music.

DJing at small, private, student parties made Klingande (real name, Cédric Steinmyller), dream about playing his own music during sets — this in turn sparked his interest in dance music production and performance. The French producer is known to incorporate piano and saxophone in his original mixes that create a “tropical feel” in his music. “Jubel” and his redemption of “Pumped Up Kicks” are only a couple singles that showcase Steinmyller’s raw talent when it comes to writing and producing music.

In the beginning of his career, Steinmyller experimented with all types of genres and was not specially drawn to “tropical house. But, he later found his sound, which would continue to evolve over the next few months. He branches out more than ever with his new single, “Wonders,” and is preparing to continue this motif while preparing for the release of his debut album sometime next year. He’s offered some details so far — like his Kygo collaboration, who is one of his artistic influences —along with Flume and pop rock bands such as Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Meet the Saturday night headliner of BangOn! NYC’s 10th Anniversary celebration – Klingande [Q+A]Klingande 06 1

 

What sparked your love for producing tropical dance music? 
I started producing after being a young DJ. I was playing in small parties, private and sometime student parties, and at some point, I wanted to play my own music. It naturally led me to learn production. I love producing all kinds of music. I wasn’t driven to tropical dance music from the beginning, and even if my music is often qualified as tropical I think it’s going further than that.

Who are your musical influences?
It’s very large from pop rock music like Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers, to progressive house and dance like SHM or Avicii and many more. In the past few years I’ve been impressed by artists like Flume and Kygo. I really value the quality and the melodies in music.

Who would you like to collaborate with?
Kygo would be great, right? As I’m working on my album I’m thinking more seriously about artists I’d love to do collabs with. I love voices like Julia Stone and Justin Jesso.

Congrats on the new single, “Wonders!” Any other projects coming up before the year’s over?
Yes, I just came back from 10 days in studio. I locked in with my team to develop my first album. It’s a work in progress but I’ve never been so close. New music will come in January and the album should come out next year as well!

What are you looking forward to most about BangOnNYC! 10th Anniversary at Warehouse of Horrors in Brooklyn?
A lot of things, the crowd from NYC is always amazing, the lineup is dope with Goldfish, Aston Shuffle. It will be a great party with everyone in costumes, I’m sure we will have a lot of fun!

Tell me about one of your favorite performances.
My favorite performance this year might have been Tomorrowland last summer. I played the new live stage, Organ of Symphony, with the band and we had singers Broken Back and Krishane come out. It was a very special one and once we started it was thrilling! Really gave me and the crew goosebumps.

What hardware/plugins are you loving right now?
I am a huge fan of UAD plugin for mixing my tracks and my favorite synths are Sylenth1, Spire and Omnisphere.

Do you have any favorite artists on the BangOnNYC! lineup?
I love Gramatik, Goldfish and FDVM are friends as well, and I love the sound of Aston Shuffle.

NMF Roundup: Sultan + Shepard take on Fatboy Slim, Klingande and Broken Back create ‘Wonders,’ BROHUG thrill in new Spinnin’ release, and moreOcaso Festival Tamarindo By Pablo Murillo 06 01 2018 0525

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


A groovy introduction transforms Kungs and Stargates’ newest release, “Be Right Here,” and added electronic elements give the catchy release a new twist thanks to remixer Wax Motif.

Swedish trio BROHUG is out with a release for Spinnin’ Records, “The Hunt.” With its intense energy and kicking chords, this new track’s eerie atmosphere is sure to thrill and excite.

Sofi Tukker have followed up their 2017 Portuguese Treehouse track “Energia” with a “Parte 2,” featuring Pabllo Vittar. “Energia- Parte 2” is an infectious track — also in Portuguese, like its predecessor — that can only be described as dance-inducing.

Roger Sanchez and Park & Sons transport listeners into the disco era with groovy new track featuring commanding vocals from Julie McKnight titled “This Feeling.”

Commercial house meets experimental soundscaping in this genre-bending release by Friend Within titled “The Truth.” Friend Within blends a groovy bassline and bright horns with catchy vocals in his new Toolroom release.

Instead of adding a hard drop and intense synth layers as many remixers do with radio-crossover releases, AmPm has lowered the BPM of Nicky Romero‘s collaboration with Taio Cruz, and added melodic moments to give the release a calming effect.

Klingande takes listeners on an indie-electronic journey with Broken Back. With its silky-smooth vocals and laid-back beat, “Wonders” proves summer never has to end.

Sultan + Shepard never cease to surprise with their experimentation across genres and sound design. Their take on Fatboy Slim‘s “Gangster Trippin” will keep a club going until the early hours of the morning, thanks to its high-energy house chords layered over the original 1998 vocals.

The Him have skewed pop with their latest, “Nothing On Us.” It opens with catchy harmonized vocals that lead into bright piano melodies and a cheery house drop.

VALENTINE and West1ne team up for “Backpack,” which effortlessly fuses calming energy with a sizable dose of bass.

While not the usual suspect for electronic music lovers, MOD SUN has infused polarizing future bass chords into the drop of new release, “Burning Up.”

Everyone seems to want a piece of the electronic music scene these days, and Disney certainly isn’t excluded. Last year, Disneyland Paris hosted its first ever electronic music festival called Electroland in celebration of the park’s 25th birthday. Although its quarter of a century birthday celebrations are over, the park has chosen to continue with the festival after a successful first event.

The 2017 rendition of Electroland featured Steve Aoki and Nervo as headliners, and Disneyland Paris just announced the 2018 lineup and details. This year, Disneyland Paris is bringing on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, and Robin Schulz as headliners in addition to Bob Sinclair and Klingande playing the open air festival. The Hollywood Tower Hotel will be outfitted with state of the art lights, screens, and special effects to match the DJs’ performances.

Fans can mark their calendars for June 29th and 30th, which are the official dates for the 2018 version of the Disneyland Paris event.

Autograf, Klingande & Dragonette – Hope For Tomorrow

This post was originally published on this site

Autograf

Autograf, Klingande, and Dragonette emerge as the exemplar of an electronic trifecta on “Hope For Tomorrow,” a single that delves into the deep end of the ‘tonal pool.’

Marked by low tones that make for a brooding aesthetic, plunging piano notes strike a harmony with the track’s moody and similarly low pitched vocal. “Hope For Tomorrow” exudes a drama of elemental arrangement that is fashioned in part by the single’s synth work, the grating synths affecting an edginess that duly demands acknowledgment, and enraptures.
