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!
