Nothing says summertime like a #TropicalHouse sunset cruise on the Harbor! Please welcome Klingande and Saint Wknd to the Boat Cruise Summer Series lineup on Friday, June 30th!
Champion of the melodic house genre, Cedric Steinmyller – best known as Klingande – has been breathing new life into the electronic music world with his impeccable productions and uplifting sound, cementing his reputation as one of the most refreshing and original producers around today.
A welcome departure from the big room house sound that has been dominating the scene of late, Klingande’s presence of sublime melodies has made him one of the leading figureheads within his field. Releasing standout music alongside fellow tropical house founders Kygo, Bakermat and Robin Schulz, his refreshing and innovative sound has influenced the likes of Lost Frenquencies, Kungs, Ofenbach and many more; cementing him as a pioneer of the tropical and melodic house genre.
Hailing from Croix, Northern France, Cedric began studying music theory as a child before later becoming immersed in electronic music as a teenager, learning to DJ and subsequently working on his own original productions. Discovering his passion for electronic music, his immense appreciation for Sweden’s booming dance music culture inspired him to eventually settle on the moniker Klingande, taken from the Swedish word for sounding – something that continues to cause confusion as to his origins to this day! Committed to furthering his vocation, Cedric moved to London where he spent a year studying at the famed Point Blank Music College, learning every facet of music production and experiencing multiple genres, a testament to his drive and determination to reach the top of his game.
Returning to his hometown back in 2012, Klingande holed himself up in the studio, honing his now signature sound to unveil his delightful debut single ‘Punga’. However, it was his follow up ‘Jubel’ in 2013 that rightfully propelled the young producer into the spotlight. Truly embodying the Swedish word it was named after, ‘Jubel’ instantly captivated listeners with its joyous and uplifting sound, becoming one of the first standout tracks of its genre. Since then, the record has amassed over 150 million views on YouTube, an additional 21 million plays across SoundCloud and a further 176 million on Spotify, as well as taking the #1 spot in 30 countries to become the most Shazamed track across Europe.
After 3 years on tour, Klingande released his short documentary ‘3 years of Music & Love’ on MTV to celebrate and tell the story of his success ‘Jubel’ which introduced his follow up single ‘Losing U’. Alongside this, he is now the host of his own radio show in the ‘House of Chill’ series on Sirius FM. Aired monthly; the show brings in millions of listeners every month from around the globe.
Unsurprisingly, it was not long before the burgeoning star caught the attention of talent scouts and tastemakers around the globe, and as the praise rolled in thick and fast, so too did the requests. His guest mixes have been applauded by the likes of Billboard and Dancing Astronaut and he has been called upon for remix treatments by everyone from Avicii & Wyclef Jean to Parov Stelar.
A musician in the truest sense of the word, what sets Klingande apart from the rest is his dedication to producing unusual and mesmerizing soundscapes. Constantly introducing instruments not usually encountered in typical electronic music, his third official single ‘RIVA (Restart The Game)’ – released earlier in 2015 and featuring French singer Broken Back – even saw him experiment with the harmonica to almighty applause. He followed up with the brilliant ‘Losing U’ introducing a quartet of chords. Bringing his saxophone player, and Violin player since end of 2016, to every show he plays, Klingande ensures this experimental attitude resonates throughout his live performances and it is therefore no surprise that he has been called upon to play at major festivals, from Ultra Music Festival in Miami to Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld.
2016 was one of Klingande’s most prolific years to date. He released ‘Losing U’ in February and ‘Somewhere New’ in August, which amassed over 23 million streams on Spotify alone and reached Platinum status in Sweden. Known for his innovative productions, Klingande even further by producing the first facebook live stream music video in history for this single, alongside At Night Studios. The video impressively went according to plan as 40 people came together to tell a wonderful story through 11 different environments.
Over the past year, Klingande has been working on his live tour where he brings out musicians playing the guitar, violin, drums and of course saxophone – creating a truly immersive live experience. With this new concept, Klingande played a monumental live show last year at the Roundhouse, London with Kungs and Felix Jaehn, and brought it to festivals like Lollapalooza. 2017 sees Klingande keep his busy tour schedule up across the US, South America and Europe with already announced dates at Tomorrowland, Parookaville, Mysteryland and returning to Ibiza in the summer. All whilst he continues to find new creative ways to express himself in the studio and on stage.
Deep in the hub of Germany, the raw sounds of 20 year old Maximilian Seethaler’s tycoon SAINT WKND is fusing danceable mixture of deep, tech and house beats with a subtle tropical-like inspired round of evocative chilled indie sounds.
