Growing up in the southernmost corner of Germany’s Allgäu area, it was his frst clubbing experiences at Munich’s Harry Klein that infected him with electronic music. Following his evolving passion for grooves and basslines, he moved to Berlin in 2012. Driven by the German capital's music and club variety, KlangKuenstler soon not only emerged as a DJ and live act, but also emphasised his multi-faceted personality by way of his initial singles: while „Barfuss auf Wolken“ was released in 2013 by the quality label Stil vor Talent and reached more than one million plays online, „Hand in Hand“ (Soundplate) was supported in the BBC Radio 1 show by Rob Da Bank.Only one year later, his debut album „That’s Me“ marked a milestone for the young newcomer, which soon resulted in him playing at renowned international clubs, as well as the big festival stages at Global Gathering, SonneMondSterne, Bestival, Dockville, Mystic Garden and Verknipt Amsterdam. With the increase in international gigs, Klangkuenstler also refned his sound, merging old-school vibes, funky hooks and - drum samples in an efective balance as proven by his hit „Jam Master Jack“ (Smiley Fingers), which climbed to #1 on Beatport’s Tech House charts in the spring of 2016 and was voted as #17 best track of 2016 in the highly respected Groove Magazine. Whether deep, booty or tech house – his sets and productions neither ft into a simple category nor do they follow popular trends. By focusing on an infectious blend of percussion and rhythm, Klangkuenstler stands for a strong characteristic sound with high memorability that can easily send every dance foor into a state of ecstasy. From his releases on Toolroom, Suara, Simma Black or Great Stuf to the numerous gigs such as Stil vor Talent’s label showcases – KlangKuenstler is always seeking for exciting variations within his style. The ambition of always reinventing himself not only explains his recent success but indicates a bright future ahead.
