“When you see how Kline get’s down, it’s easy to understand why hundreds would get out before noon to take part in the action. Outragously themed parties aside, his approach to production is more akin to the energy of a punk or metal band, the sort of outfits in which he got his musical start. His tracks have a dark and heavy vibe; nasty, sexy bangers to drop once the crowd is nice and sweaty.” –

Chicago native Orville Kline is not just another DJ. When he’s not guest lecturing classes at Columbia College Chicago, mixing live visuals for acts like Steve Angelo, or engineering indie hip-hop tracks featuring Snoop, Orville somehow finds time to produce and perform his own unique style of cutting edge electronic dance music. He has played all of Chicago’s biggest venues as well as clubs, parties and festivals across the country in cities like Vegas, LA, Detroit, Miami, Denver, Tulsa, Seattle, and . Being a part of the Chicago-based Custom Vibes, he has shared the stage with DJs along the likes of Rusko, Skrillex, Afrojack, Felix Da Housecat, Tommy Lee & Dj Aero, JFK of MSTRKRFT, The Glitch Mob, LA Riots, Steve Aoki, 12th Planet, D.I.M., Le Castle Vania, Passion Pit, Mustard Pimp, Switch, Downlink, Kill The Noise, Ocelot, Designer Drugs, Kraddy, Bart B More, Tinie Tempah, Troble & Bass DJs, Figure, Utah Saints, Bird Peterson, Penquin Prison, Midnight Conspiracy + many more. He also played this year’s North Coast Festival with headliners like David Guetta, Bassnectar, Benny Benassi, & Major Lazer. His former band Fun Club has performed with acts like Mindless Self Indulgence, Local H, Kill Hanna, and Misson of Burma. Orville is also the music director and a resident DJ at Chicago’s original and infamous Porn & Chicken Dance Party. Aside from being voted the best dance party in Chicago, Porn & Chicken is also being hosted in other cities across the country like Vegas & Denver. Orville uses wireless MIDI controllers (like his Wii guitar and iPad) during his sets enabling him to leave the DJ booth and interact with the dance floor while still mixing.

Orville got the nickname “Orvtron” because his friends and colleagues described his work ethic and productivity to be non-human or robotic. His hard work and consistence with music has paid off as he is now living his dream. Orville got started with music playing in many indie, punk, & metal bands prior to DJing. This taught Orville how to entertain a crowd while putting on a show without sacrificing his musical integrity. Always being a forerunner of new music production and live performance technology, Orville is one of less than 50 Certified Ableton Live Instructors in the country. Orville is also a music production and DJ/live performance instructor at Chicago’s leading music technology and business school Music Industry Workshop. Orville does freelance recording and mix engineering at Chicago’s legendary Studio Chicago. You can find Orville Kline releases on Bit Riot Records and Invisibles with upcoming releases on Dirty Fabric Digital and Calamity of Noise Records. Orville is currently collaborating on new music with fellow PnC resident Jai Sephora, The Chaotic Good, & Paul Anthony. Be on the lookout for Orville Kline in 2012 as he will be coming to destroy a city near you!
