French melodic house pioneer Klingande released a remix package of his successful single ‘Somewhere New’ featuring M-22 via Ultra Music.
Led by a soulful female vocal and a gentle guitar melody, a soft bassline and upbeat piano chords make the original a danceable yet relaxed summery track. Unsurprisingly, it’s been a hit since it’s release, already having hit Gold status in Sweden and reaching millions of streams on Spotify.
After the original and extended mixes, the package kicks off with a remix from Solidisco. Upping the tempo with stomping drums and catchy keys, it’s a solid output from the New York duo. Austrian duo Naxxos put in a more relaxed remix full of glitchy synth chords, whilst fellow French producer Epic Empire introduces brass chords to his slowed-down take on the record. Original collaborator M-22 rounds off the package with a club-focused edit.
The single was accompanied by the first ever Facebook live streamed music video. Aside from the rehearsals, there were no edits – the whole video was filmed in one single, live shot, in a game-changing move for the future of music videos. You can watch it back on Klingande’s Facebook here.
Despite the enormous success of his breakthrough track ‘Jubel’ – with over 72 million streams on Spotify and 144M views on Youtube and counting – Klingande is not one to rest on his laurels. Having already built momentum with ‘Riva’ (with 36M Spotify streams), ‘Losing U’ amassed over two million views on Youtube and nearly 8.5 million streams on Spotify in two months. With the promise of lots of new music, as well as a live tour which features musicians playing the guitar, violin, harmonica, drums, saxophone and even singers, Klingande shows absolutely no signs of putting on the brakes. Klingangde brings his special performance to Exchange LA this Friday 03/24! Buy tickets here.
