Claudio Fuentes, aka “Klaud” is a young, talented and innovative Electronic Dance Music DJ and Producer. Klaud was born in Mexico City, and following the footsteps of his father(an internationally renown vocalist) he began to explore and develop his musical sense at an early age. At 17, he began studying and producing tracks full-time and imprinted his lifelong inspirations into brilliant musical compositions.
After having moved to Miami, Florida in 2008, he could finally embark on his journey to follow his dreams. He quickly gained support and recognition from various Miami-based, and even international artists including Kryder, Native, Alex M & MASF, Luccio, and Sharkoffs who gave him more initiative to achieve his goals. Shortly after, Bash Music Group recognized Klaud’s undeniable dedication to the industry and signed him to their electronic dance record label. His production is truly unique. Finding deep inspiration and transforming beautiful melodies into mind-blowing dance floor masterpieces.
Klaud always prepares heavily and passionately to make every single one of his live sets unique.
Though there have been countless sources for his inspirations, he never fails to quote Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, and Daft Punk as being in the top of the list, among other young producers such as Arty, Porter Robinson, Avicii, Matisse & Sadko, Hardwell and Dyro, to keep the list short.
Having opened for acclaimed producers such as Steve Angello from Swedish House Mafia and Sander Van Doorn has inspired him further. He’s been featured in countless music blogs including EDM Insider, Bomb Beats, Bring The House Down. In September 2012, his productions will be brought overseas to London and he certainly won’t stop here. For only 18 years old, Klaud is only getting started, and the world has yet to experience the true potential of this up-and-coming producer.
