The fact that Eelke Kleijn DJs in his socks, and produces music while in a standing position, tells you a lot about what you need to know about him.
Three albums into an established, yet still rapidly ascending career, Kleijn is very much in his element. He’s an underground artist, but one who has effortlessly made the jump into the wider world when the opportunity arose. His remixes for the likes of John Legend, Pendulum, and James Newton Howard & Jennifer Lawrence are testament to his ability to reach wider audiences, without compromising on his core values.
With a background in playing piano, guitar and bass, and a healthy sideline composing for film and TV, his productions have a deep sense of musicality and emotion. His work scoring Hollywood blockbusters like Rush, Parker and This Means War has been met with great acclaim. His latest artist album “Moments Of Clarity” is the apex of his work so far, blending Progressive, Ambient, Breakbeat, Deep House and Melodic Techno in perfect harmony, to create an album that is as much at home on the dancefloor, as it is on the home stereo.
Eelke’s “Days Like Nights” radio show is an important part of what he does. Serving as a multi-faceted platform where he enjoys total creative control, it encompasses both a label and a radio show, and the show airs here on HFM Ibiza every Tuesday at 6pm GMT/7pm CET/1pm EST.
