Eli & Fur
Since breaking onto the scene in 2012, Eli & Fur have been perfecting a sound built around electronic melodies and moody vocals. Their debut track, ‘You’re So High’ reached top 3 on Hype Machine & over 3 million plays on youtube. 2015 saw the rise and rise of Eli & Fur — tipped by Beatport & Pete Tong as the ones to watch. 2016 continues with great momentum and sees them collaborating with Danteiz Saunderson, Forrest, Uner & more.
The duo’s debut track, ‘You’re So High’ reached the top 3 on Hype Machine and has since picked up over 3 million plays. ‘Seeing is Believing’ saw the girls collaborate with Shadow Child and release on Defected, ‘Feel The Fire’ came on Anjunadeep and ‘Your Eyes’ saw the girls self-release on NYX Muisc and team up with Beatport in the first ever Artist Partnership on Beatport’s newly launched streaming platform. More recently Eli & Fur released the incredibly received ‘California Love’ EP which propelled them in the US and helped them gain their first ever performance on Coachella 2016.
2015 saw the rise and rise of Eli & Fur. Tipped by Beatport as 2015 Artists to Watch, they’e since been nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ in The DJ Awards, ‘Best Producer’ in the Bass Music Awards, ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ at DJ Magazine’s ‘Best of British’ and more recently ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ in the 2016 IDMA Awards. Their productions have been heavily supported by the champion of dance music, Pete Tong, and the girls are set to unleash their next wave of releases and a series of collaborations which have seen them pair up with Dantiez Saunderson, Tâches, Erick Morillo, Santé and more.
Eli & Fur rolled out 2015 with a Thelma & Louise inspired tour through North America. Documenting every step of their 13 city tour on Go-Pro, taking planes, train, automobiles and boats, dropping into radio stations, studio sessions, TV networks and clubs. It was an unusual way to approach the US market but a life time dream inspired by quite possibly the two coolest chics ever to grace the big screen. The end result is the self-made video for California Love.
So with an impressive 2015 in the bag it looks like 2016 will be a year of continued success.
Any progress requires the conviction to consistently pursue your own path. The Berlin-based DJ and producer KlangKuenstler is the best example that talent isn’t just a matter of luck. You also need the courage to believe in your own skills while steadily developing them. It's no coincidence that KlangKuenstler became one of the most promising house artists of the German scene within the last three years.
Growing up in the southernmost corner of Germany’s Allgäu area, it was his first clubbing experiences at Munich’s Harry Klein that infected him with electronic music. Following his evolving passion for grooves and bass lines, 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 clubs such as Watergate (Berlin), Egg (London), Razzmatazz (Barcelona), Hive (Zurich), Pratersauna (Vienna), or Live RCA (Bangkok), as well as the big festival stages at Global Gathering, SonneMondSterne, Bestival, Dockville, and Mystic Garden. With the increase in international gigs, KlangKuenstler also refined his sound, merging old-school vibes, funky hooks, and drum samples in an effective 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.
Whether deep, booty or tech house – his sets and productions neither fit 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 floor into a state of ecstasy. From his releases on Toolroom, Suara, Simma Black or Great Stuff 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.
