With his initial release on Spinnin Records in 2015 “Ertesuppe”, the young DJ/Producer phenom from Amsterdam, Dante Klein burst onto the scene. The track was quickly featured in Pete Tong’s radio show along with those of Avicii, Watermat & The Magician. Collabs soon followed with Sam Feldt, along with remixes for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Kim Churchill.
For Dante (real name Max Krul), it was 2016 when the unexpected magic happened : “Let Me Hold You (Turn Me On)” with LA group Cheat Codes had been secretly gaining global traction on Spotify as an ID track, with more than 4.000.000 streams before its official “reveal”. Shortly thereafter it rocketed to over 200 million streams and achieving Gold status in various countries and was nestled in the Global Spotify Top 30 played tracks for months.
Following this success Dante was soon asked to make remixes for Yellow Claw’s “Invitation”, Bakermat’s “Living”, and Cheat Codes’ latest single “Queen Elizabeth”, making it a very busy time in the studio.
Now, still only 21 years old, Dante Klein is ready to make 2017 the best year yet with his brand new solo release “HARDER” – out on Spinnin’ Records January 13th. The track is punchy power pop with a great dance groove and hooky drop. It was written together with some of LA’s finest writers of the moment (Peter Hanna, Francesca Richard, Hailey Collier). It also features Hailey a.k.a. Hailz on the vocals and for sure will be penetrating global airwaves and streams for many months to come.
All this will be paving the way for Dante Klein to playing stages and festivals around the world throughout the upcoming summer, so keep an ear on the radio and an eye on your favorite party line-up to catch him in action.
