Sander Kleinenberg

Sander Kleinenberg will play at Akureyri Dance Festival on Friday, June 15th 2018

Sander Kleinenberg is a true pillar of the global dance music community. As a remixer, DJ and producer he has long been leading the pack with his own distinctive sound and after two decades in the game remains as vital and vibrant as ever. Part of the first wave of truly global DJ super stars, Sander started out playing urban music as a teen but soon graduated to dance styles. He mixes up them all into his own fresh DJ sets and tunes and can do anything from quirky disco, psychedelia, Detroit techno, straight up soul and raw industrialism.

Always remaining two steps ahead of the crowd, Sander is an Award winning DJ and producer who never performs the same trick twice. Always evolving and shifting his styles, he has remixed pop icons like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Daft Punk, N*E*R*D*, Janet Jackson and many more. At the same time, original tracks of his like ‘My Lexicon’ and ‘The Fruit’ have made lasting impacts on the scene, while several tracks and remixes in 2015 mean Sander is still a valid player in the ‘house 2.0’ movement. Helping that be the case is the fact Sander runs his own influential label THIS IS Recordings and it is a great home to his own work and fresh sounds from the best of the rest. It is labels like Fools Gold and Spinnin Records that put out his material, and with more than 30 EPs, 2 albums and 190 plus remix credits, this Dutchman is truly prolific and always exciting.
