Both Klingande and ‘Jubel’ are named after Swedish words due to Klingande’s love of the nation’s house music: ‘Jubel’ meaning joy, and ‘Klingande’ taken from the word for sounding.
Klingande was formed in December of 2012 by Cédric and Edgar, two 24-year-olds from Croix in northern France, after being united by their love of electronic artists such as Klangkarussell, Bakermat and Nico Pusch.
Cédric studied music theory as a child, but later became immersed in electronic music as a teenager; initially a DJ, he soon also began to work on his own original productions. Edgar first started playing the piano at the age of sixteen and was so enamoured that he spent four years studying the instrument. The pair first met at school at the age of ten, but reconnected late in 2012 when Cédric returned from a spell in London and made fresh contact with his old friend.
Klingande have spent much of the year touring throughout all over Europe. The second single to be released in mainland Europe is ‘Punga’, another track which features his distinctive house-meets-saxophone sound and also earned a huge online following.
Klingande is now represented by Cedric, who spend much of his time between stages, planes and his studio in Lille (FR). New singles and EP are coming this year, with some surprises.
Stay tuned, this is only the beginning!
Air Zaire (DJ Set)
In May of 2012, Florida native Air Zaire traded in the warmth and waves of the south for the busy streets of New York City. In just over a year, the Brooklyn-based DJ/producer has amassed a loyal following with his infectious nu disco edits featuring velvet-y R&B vocals by the likes of Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Avant.
Any listener will agree his previously released tracks reveal Air Zaire’s constant muse–his hometown. Despite his new area code, it’s obvious he’s never lost touch with the hedonistic lifestyle Florida so often conveys. Nowhere is his inspiration more obvious than his first original single, “Sanibel,” named after a barrier island off the west coast of Florida with white sandy beaches, clear blue waters and a breathtaking abundance of seashells.
Almost immediately, guest singer Patrick Baker’s whisper-like vocals hypnotize, suggesting “We could lost / Fly away, girl / We could slow it down / On an island for just me and you.”
Earlier this year, the infectious track made a brief debut as the opener in a recent podcast for The Vibe Guide. Today, fans everywhere can rejoice in its official release as they daydream about whisking that special someone to a far away destination.
