Get Klingande songs and albums from:
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 sublime melodies have earned him recognition from industry heavyweights Kygo, Bakermat, Robin Schulz and Klangkarussel to name just a few.
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 100 million views on YouTube, an additional 17 million plays across SoundCloud and a further 51 million on Spotify, as well as taking the #1 spot in 30 countries to become the most Shazamed track across Europe.
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. Called upon by Thomas Jack to provide the fourth volume of his revered Tropical House series, 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. Bringing his saxophone player 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.
Looking ahead to the end of 2015 and beyond, it's clear that Klingande has no intention of putting on the brakes. With the promise of an upcoming album, as well as a live tour in the works for 2016 that will see him bringing out musicians playing the guitar, violin, harmonica, drums, saxophone and even singers, Klingande is undoubtedly the one to watch.

Get Neelix songs and albums from:
Neelix /ˈniːlᵻks/ is a character in the science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager, played by actor Ethan Phillips. Neelix is an alien who has joined the crew of the "lost at sea" United Federation of Planets starship USS Voyager, appearing with mottled temple ridges and a blond "hair tube" on the top of his head.
The character of Neelix is from Rinax, a moon of the planet Talax, located in the Delta Quadrant of the show's fictional representation of the Milky Way galaxy. His entire family was killed in a conflict with the Haakonian race.
Neelix was introduced in "Caretaker", the pilot episode of the series, in which he is rescued from the violent Kazon, a species who will be recurring antagonists in the series. Through some subterfuge, he enlists the help of the Voyager crew to also rescue his partner Kes, a member of another alien species, the Ocampa. Previously a space trader, Neelix offers his services as a guide to the Delta Quadrant. Seeking further to make himself useful to the crew, he appoints himself "Chief Morale Officer" and becomes the ship's cook.
The captain of the ship, Kathryn Janeway, merely tolerates him at first, but later comes to respect and value Neelix as an important member of the crew. She eventually appoints him as unofficial ship's Ambassador. The character's relationship with Kes is later terminated by her, but the two characters are shown to remain good friends thereafter. During the course of the series, the ebullient Neelix develops an unlikely friendship with Tuvok, the ship's stoic Vulcan security chief.
Neelix exits the show in the final season episode "Homestead". The ship encounters a colony of exiled Talaxians, the last of his species that he is likely to see as the ship travels further from his home, and he chooses to stay with them. The character returns for a cameo in the series finale, "Endgame".

Get Pan-Pot songs and albums from:
Pan-Pot is the name of the Berlin-based techno duo, German DJs and music producers Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix.
Since their launch in 2005, Pan-Pot have established their presence in the modern techno scene, reaching popularity with the release of their debut album, Pan-O-Rama, on Anja Schneider's Mobilee label.
Their music repertoire is best defined as underground-oriented and yet independent of any existing genres of contemporary sounds, traversing techno and house but having experimental elements with strong IDM influences.
The duo are credited with producing live sets combined with vocals that are described as revealing a deep understanding of the dancefloor needs of clubs and festivals.
Tassilo and Thomas met in 2003 at Berlin's SAE Institute where they studied audio engineering. There the two producers completed their studies in sound production and design, which helped them in defining Pan-Pot's sound aesthetic when they started producing music together.
In 2005, the duo booked Anja Schneider for one of their events, which coincidentally gave them the opportunity to establish a favorable connection with her then nascent Mobilee imprint. After a few weeks the label launched their second release, which was Pan-Pot's official debut, "Copy and Paste". Since then a steady stream of tracks and remixes have been released on Mobilee and Einmaleins Musik.
The defining moment of Pan-Pot's career came in 2007, with the release of their debut artist album, Pan-O-Rama. Tracks such as "Charly" and "Captain My Captain" became hits, which made the artists known for their blend of melodic and plain techno and house.
In 2014, Pan-Pot launch their own imprint, Second State, moving into a new chapter of their career.

Get Dubfire songs and albums from:
Ali Shirazinia, commonly known by his stage name Dubfire, is an Iranian American house and techno DJ and producer. Prior to his solo career, Dubfire was one-half of the four-time nominated and Grammy Award-winning duo Deep Dish. Dubfire's style is noticeably different from that of Deep Dish, consisting of techno instead of progressive house.BiographyDuring his youth he listened to mostly classic Hip-Hop, jazz/rare groove, dub reggae, new wave and industrial and was also influenced by the local punk scene and the music of Washington DC-based bands including Fugazi and Minor Threat. Shirazinia frequented a local record store called Yesterday And Today Records, where he became acquainted with the sounds of artists like Kraftwerk, Ministry, Jesus & Mary Chain, Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, Adrian Sherwood of On-U Sound and Einstürzende Neubauten.In 1991, Shirazinia and fellow DC resident Sharam Tayebi formed Deep Dish, a DJ and production duo that became notable for their productions and DJ sets. Deep Dish released acclaimed dance classics beginning with the 1995 remix of De'Lacy 'Hideaway,' and went on to work with an eclectic array of names in pop, rock and electronica. Shirazinia and Tayebi established Deep Dish Records, and they went on to win a Grammy in 2002 for their remix of Dido's "Thank You" along with many other high-profile awards. Following their successes as Deep Dish, both Shirazinia and Tayebi began to produce and DJ individually.Shirazinia used his long-time stage name "Dubfire" for his solo productions. Shirazinia's solo sound differs noticeably from that of Deep Dish, consisting of minimal, techno, and house instead of the predominantly progressive house sound of Deep Dish. His production I Feel Speed, which is a cover of an obscure Love & Rockets song, features his own vocals. The track symbolically and sonically marked a crossroads in Shirazinia's music career, fusing Deep Dish's vocal-driven progressive house with darker, edgier sounds. Shirazinia also sings in In Love With a Friend on Deep Dish's debut album. I Feel Speed has appeared in the advertisement of the Volkswagen Eos.In 2007, Shirazinia announced the launch of his new record label, Science + Technology Digital Audio, also known simply as SCI + TEC. He set the label up as an outlet to release his new music and began quietly unleashing a string of remarkable tracks. 2007's electro-tech track 'Roadkill' edged Dubfire ever closer to a techno sensibility, while the stripped-back 'RibCage' became the first ever release on Loco Dice's heralded Desolat label, becoming an instant classic.Dubfire followed up with an onslaught of dancefloor-igniting releases, landing on some of electronic music's leading labels. Richie Hawtin, who signed Dubfire's 'Emissions' to his highly respected Minus label, also released Dubfire's rework of 'Spastik' (the classic track that Hawtin produced in 1993 under his Plastikman alias) as an official re-work. Soon thereafter, Sven Vath's Cocoon Records took notice and released some of Dubfire's music, cementing his extraordinary reinvention.With each release, Dubfire's profile soared higher. Two top 10 tracks in Resident Advisor's 100 Most Charted Records of 2007, IDJ Magazine's Player of the Year in 2008, nominations for Beatport's Best Minimal Artist and Best Techno Artist in 2008 and 2009, covers on countless music magazines, mixes for Mixmag, BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix, and DJ Magazine - the accolades and achievements came thick and fast.In 2009, Dubfire produced a remix on Danton Eeprom and Radio Slave's 'Grindhouse' which encapsulated everything that Dubfire stands for today: dark rhythms, superior audio, and technological brilliance. It crossed nearly every genre and was the apex of a unique sound that DJ Magazine called "jet-black, polished chrome techno." Groove and Raveline Magazine named it the Best Remix of the Year.Dubfire's recent work has seen him co-produce tracks with celebrated British electronic music act Underworld, release a two-disc compilation with Loco Dice for Cocoon, additional remixes of Plastikman material, and a collaborative project with respected producer Oliver Huntemann. Throughout his remarkable journey, Dubfire's SCI+TEC label has continued to grow and is now home to a roster of globally based artists.Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubfire

Get Ben Klock songs and albums from:
Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock is without a doubt one of the most significant characters in techno's recent history. A resident at Berghain since its opening in 2004, he has been able to leave his mark on the club's unique sound, in turn the special space influenced Klock's approach as a DJ and producer as well. Playing techno sets full of hypnotic, deep and heavy grooves, releasing records on Ostgut Ton and last but not least the aesthetics of his own label Klockworks (founded in 2006), have earned him an excellent international reputation over the last few years. Supported by stringent and enthralling tracks, remixes for such diverse artists as Kerri Chandler, Martyn or Depeche Mode, the revered debut album "One" on Ostgut Ton and his Berghain mix, Ben Klock's name is synonymous with the vitalization of an essential definition of techno. His music is free of crippling nostalgia and rather wins you over with consistency, tension, and dynamics and time and time again with a sensibility, one would usually expect from house music. In this vein, Klock pursues an unexacting fusion of quantum jumps and tradition - including effortless melodies or hook lines. Being able to harmonize this method of industrial austerity, natural musicality and an impressive physicality is Ben Klock's great art and skill. And of course his monthly marathon sets at Berghain that escort all what's being said with pure sound and consistently motivate Ben Klock to skip the trapdoor called routine.

Get Dirty Doering songs and albums from:
Dirty Doering (* 1978 in Leipzig, bürgerlich Velten Döring) ist ein deutscher DJ und Betreiber des Berliner House-Labels Katermukke.
Leben und Werk
In den 1980ern wanderte Doering mit seiner Mutter aus der DDR in den Westen aus und wuchs in Baden-Baden auf. Mit 15 fing er nach eigenen Angaben an, in Clubs zu gehen, LPs zu kaufen und mit einem Freund zu Hause mit zwei Plattenspielern aufzulegen. Es folgten schon als Jugendlicher Auftritte in kleineren Clubs in Baden-Baden oder Karlsruhe. Gleichzeitig absolvierte er eine Ausbildung als Sport- und Gymnastiklehrer. Nachdem Doering schon als Jugendlicher regelmäßig in Berlin war, zog er 1999 endgültig in die Hauptstadt um. Weil die Partys in den einschlägigen Techno-Clubs wie Ostgut oder Sternradio nach seinen Worten damals noch nicht so lange gingen, wie heutzutage, veranstaltete er in seiner Wohnung sogenannte Afterhours, wo er einerseits selber auflegte, andererseits viele Persönlichkeiten aus der Techno-Szene kennenlernte. Er wurde schließlich Resident-DJ im Sternradio und verdiente ab 2004 mit dem Auflegen seinen Lebensunterhalt. In den folgenden Jahren und bis heute legte und legt er in zahlreichen Berliner Clubs auf, wie beispielsweise im Sisyphos, Tresor, Golden Gate, Watergate, Club der Visionäre, Wilde Renate, Ritter Butzke, auch als Resident in der mittlerweile geschlossenen Bar 25, dem ebenfalls geschlossenen Nachfolgeclub Kater Holzig und heute im Kater Blau.
Es folgten Bookings in zahlreichen weiteren Clubs in aller Welt und Auftritte auf Festivals wie der Fusion oder dem Melt, international beispielsweise auf dem Sónar.
Doering gründete und managt mehrere Labels, so z. B. Katermukke, für das er 2013 auf seinen Namen eine Wortmarke angemeldet hat, oder zusammen mit Housemeister das Label Allyoucanbeat. Seine Musik wurde auch über Rauschenbach Music vertrieben. Zu seinen bekannten Produktionen gehören I Would, Dr. Nagel (Christopher Schwarzwälder Remix), El Matematico (Dirty Doering Remix) oder Été Pluvieux oder Sommer (Dirty Doering Remix). Sein Stil als DJ deckt dabei eine breite Palette von im weitesten Sinne Techno ab, von Tech House und Deep House bis Minimal Techno. Privat hört er gerne zahlreiche andere Musikstile wie Jazz, Reggae, Dubstep, aber auch New Wave, was ihn nach eigenen Angaben auch bei seinen Produktionen beeinflusst.
Die österreichische Kleine Zeitung bezeichnet ihn als „eine der einflussreichsten Personen der Berliner Clubszene" sowie sein Label Katermukke als eines der „wichtigsten Electronic Labels".

Get Monika Kruse songs and albums from:
Monika Kruse (born 23 July 1971) is a German techno DJ/producer and record label owner, with a career in electronic music spanning more than 25 years. She played an influential role in the early Munich rave scene during the early 1990s and was among the first wave of German techno artists to tour internationally, before moving to Berlin at the end of the decade where she founded her Terminal M record label.
Kruse remains a prominent fixture on the international house and techno scene, with regular appearances at major European events like Awakenings and Time Warp, and is also known for her long-term commitment to social justice via her No Historical Backspin charity that she founded in 2000.
Kruse was born in 1971 in West Berlin, but grew up in the Bavarian capital of Munich after her parents moved there when she was a baby. She began classical training in piano at the age of four*, and during her teens began accumulating a record collection that saw her cultivating a love of music that spanned funk, soul, hip-hop and house.
After her final exams she took various apprenticeships in the music industry, before later commencing a role as a product manager for Chrysalis Records, working with bands including Gang Starr and Monie Love.
Kruse's involvement with the Munich scene began in 1991 when she began DJing for the Babalu Bar in Munich. While her early sets featured hip hop and funk, she was also influenced by the early emerging sounds of Detroit Techno and Chicago House. Her first residency in the Parkcafé Club followed next, and her involvement with the blossoming techno scene deepened at the end of 1993 when she became a member of the Ultraworld Crew which began organising techno events in Munich and opened up Munich's iconic Ultraschall techno club in 1994. Kruse was a Resident DJ at Ultraschall from the start.
The middle of the decade saw Kruse performing alongside Sven Väth regularly at his iconic club Omen in Frankfurt. It also marked the commencement of her career as an international touring artist, seeing her DJing alongside Carl Cox at Global Gathering in the UK, Limelight alongside DJ Pierre in NYC and Chicago as well as her residency at Belgium's iconic Fuse nightclub later in the decade.
At the end of 1997 Kruse moved to the German capital of Berlin to join the city's renowned techno scene, where she begun her Terminal M record label in 2000. The label has played host to early releases from artists like Stimming and andhim as well as prominent artists like Patrick Lindsey, DJ Rush, Miss Kitten, Gregor Tresher, ANNA, Pig&Dan, Paride Saraceni, Noir, Victor Ruiz, as well as supporting the music of emerging talent like Skober, Metodi Hristov, Kydus, Drunken Kong and Ilija Djokovic.
In 2000 she played at Berlin's Loveparade in front of 1.5 million people In the same year Kruse founded No Historical Backspin, a project founded to assist those suffering from racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism and anti-immigrant attacks*. These charity parties have been widely supported by her peers, with names such as Cassy, Tama Sumo and Gaiser playing over the years. Her benefit charity party at Berghain in March 2015 brought DJs like andhim, Anja Schneider, &ME and Ellen Alien together and raised over 20,000 Euros for Amadeu Antonio Stiftung. Amadau Antonio Stiftung is one of Germany's foremost, independent non-governmental organizations working to strengthen democratic civic society and eliminate neo-Nazism, right-wing extremism, and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry and hate in Germany. Kruse's most recent Refugees Welcome party later that year in October raised money for those fleeing violence and persecution. Raising awareness and funds for these causes is important to Kruse who believes "No one should be discriminated against, hindered or hurt because of their personal background, race, gender, belief, physical challenges or sexual orientation – be it in Germany or elsewhere. We're against all forms of discrimination – be it sexism, homophobia, or anti-Semitism. 70 years after the National Socialist tyranny in Germany we'd like to celebrate society's diversity through music, joy and togetherness and set an example for tolerance, which should go without saying for a mutual, peaceful future."
Kruse first DJed at the popular Time Warp event in Mannheim, Germany in 1999 and she remains a fixture on the line-up to this day. She also appears regularly at prominent European festivals such as Awakenings in the Netherlands, and her DJ schedule for 2017 sees her appearing weekly in nightclubs across Germany and the rest of Europe
She began DJing annually in Ibiza in 2001 when she played alongside Sven Väth at his Cocoon residency at club Amnesia. In 2016 she performed at Carl Cox's final residency at Space Ibiza, and for the 2017 Ibiza season she is scheduled for several appearances at the Hyte Wednesday night residency at Amnesia in Ibiza
Kruse has also performed at the Burning Man Festival that takes place at Black Rock City, a temporary city erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. Her first appearance was in 2011, and she described the festival as a "spiritual thing" for her. "I went there for the first time after my mum passed and I visited the temple where you can really relieve your sadness and just get in touch with yourself and write nice letters to the ones you have lost."
She's been a regular at Berghain/Panorama Bar since the early days, playing in both clubs/rooms.
Kruse is held in the highest regard by her peers. When speaking of Kruse, Adam Beyer has said "Monika has a very special place in my heart. She was one of the very first international DJs I ever saw in my life. She played in Stockholm a couple of times in the early 90s - as early as 93/94 and I was there a young Adam Beyer in his best form, partying and [I] really enjoyed it back then and I have done that ever since for over 20 years now. She's been a long stay on the German scene and the international scene. She runs her own label Terminal M which is one of my favourite labels as well. She's a great person and a great DJ, one of the true spirits of this scene and I can't say enough good things about her really."
In 2017 Kruse made her debut on the Essential Mix weekly radio show broadcast on BBC Radio 1, where host Pete Tong described her as "techno royalty".
At the end of 1997, Kruse released her first solo production on a compilation and moved to Berlin, where she released her first mix CD. Around this time she met Patrick Lindsey, and together they collaborated as producers over several years under the name Monika Kruse @ Voodooamt. Their first release came in 1998. In 2000, Kruse founded her first label Terminal M.
2001 saw the release of the first Monika Kruse @ Voodooamt album, Panorama, with Patrick Lindsey.
In 2003 she founded another record label, Electric Avenue Recordings. In summer she had a hit in Europe with her track "Latin Lovers", which reached #1 in the Dutch dance charts the top 20 in the Spanish sales charts. Passengers, her second LP, was released in autumn 2003.
In 2007 Monika Kruse began a productive cooperation with Worms-based Gregor Tresher. Their first production "GTMK - and more..." came out in July 2007 - followed by another 12" GTMK - Panchakarma on Dutch label Intacto.
In 2008 Kruse released her acclaimed debut solo longplayer, 'Changes of Perception' – which clocked in at number 2 on Raveline Magazine*'s 'Best Album of the year 2008'
Kruse's follow up album 'Traces' came four years after 'Changes of Perception' and is an expression of Kruse's personal and musical influences over the years – "It's a combinations of different electronic styles which have all had a big impact on me"
Though she began working on 'Traces' in February 2011, she took a break during the course of creating the album due to the death of her mother. She returned to the studio in the autumn and completed it in February 2012, finding catharsis in her love for music - "When my mother was sick and died, that was not easy, but when I start to spin I immediately – when the first record is playing – I forget everything about me and I just hear the music".
2017 sees the release of a 'Get Me On', a new EP from Kruse and her long-time collaborators Pig&Dan, with whom she's made four EP's with. Talking about her relationship with the duo, Kruse says "I'm always happy to spend time with my brothers in the studio because we have so much fun and it just flows."
Monika says she bonded with Pig&Dan in Ibiza more than ten years ago: "I remember clicking with them from the first moment and we've been great friends ever since. Even at that early point we had the idea to go into the studio together, but it took years until it actually happened for the first EP".
Monika believes 'Get Me On' to be one of her most emotional production works – "It was extra special because it was during my time-out moment where I was doing a lot of meditation and I think that reflects in the EP".

Get Boris Brejcha songs and albums from:
Boris Brejcha (* 26. November 1981 in Ludwigshafen am Rhein) ist ein deutscher DJ und Musikproduzent. Er selbst beschreibt seinen Musikstil als „High-Tech Minimal".
Seit seiner Kindheit spielt Brejcha Schlagzeug und Keyboard und war als Schüler auch ein halbes Jahr lang Schlagzeuger in einer Band. Kurze Zeit später brachte ihm ein Klassenkamerad eine CD der niederländischen Techno-Veranstaltung Thunderdome, was seine erste Erfahrung mit dem Genre darstellte. Im Alter von zwölf Jahren begann er dann selbst hobbymäßig elektronische Musik zu produzieren, war jedoch noch bei keinem Label.
2006 startete er schließlich mit seinen beiden Singles Monster und Yellow Kitchen seine Karriere als Techno-Produzent bei dem Label Autist Records. Noch im selben Jahr hatte er auch seinen ersten Auftritt als DJ beim Universo Parallelo-Festival in Brasilien. Ein Jahr später wurde er nach mehreren weiteren veröffentlichten Tracks von der Zeitschrift Raveline zum „Ausnahmetalent 2007" ernannt.
Im Jahr 2015 gründete Brejcha nach mehreren Jahren der erfolgreichen Zusammenarbeit mit dem Plattenlabel Harthouse sein eigenes Musiklabel, welches er Fckng Serious nannte. Außer ihm sind noch die Musiker Deniz Bul, Ann Clue und das Duo Theydream bei dem Label unter Vertrag.
