Singer Nick Klein and producer Ferdous Dehzad are based in Eindhoven in the Netherlands; together as KLYNE, the duo make mellow electronic pop that fizzes and glitches like a sunnier counterpart to Jai Paul’s harder sound.
Klyne first caught everyone’s attention with their critically-acclaimed debut EP ‘Paralyzed’ on Aesop, as well as their debut remix – a rework of Disclosure’s ‘Omen’ feat. Sam Smith – before signing to Because Music and going on to release their first two singles, ‘Don’t Stop’ & ‘Water Flow’. Both tracks hit the #1 spot on Hype Machine whilst garnering support from i-D, PIGEONS & PLANES, THE FADER and NOISEY as well as receiving airplay support from BBC R1, 6 Music and Beats1 as well as massively outperforming on Spotify, with ‘Water Flow’ racing to over 6 million streams and counting.
Their new single ‘Still Not Over You’ premiered with PIGEONS&PLANES and they revealed the video via DAZED&CONFUSED. Now coming with a gorgeous, lowkey remix courtesy of Mall Grab – himself already revered by Mixmag following releases on Hot Haus Recs and Hokkaido Dance Club and getting tapped up for a monthly show on Rinse FM. The track’s given a hefty dose of the Australian’s ‘mildly celestial’ take on house music to give a significantly blessed-out iteration.
Having supported Years & Years across Europe, Christine and the Queens and having made their debut trip to the US with shows in NYC and at SXSW, Klyne return to our shores to headline Pickle Factory on Monday 15 May.
Having released their hugely anticipated sophomore EP Well Worn back in August, today Kllo share Mall Grab’s rework of their single ‘Walls to Build’. Handpicked by Kllo, the up-and-coming Australian producer adds a driving bass beat while altering the pace of the original, injecting some space into the song to emphasize its depth. He’s effectively managed to turn Kllo’s smart pop into low light R&B, showcasing the duo’s wide, cross-genre appeal.
The duo is currently on their first ever world tour taking them across Europe with RÜFÜS DU SOL and NAO and North America with RÜFÜS DU SOL again later this month. To cap off the year, they’ll be playing a headline show in Los Angeles on December 4th at Multiply LA, and make their New York City live debut at Baby’s All Right on December 8th.
