Definitely surprising, Klingande comes back with an unexpected collaboration with US Trio AUTOGRAF and DRAGONETTE’s singer. Long time friends, Autograf and Klingande did a lot of shows together in US, Autograf used to be the opening act on a Klingande tour back in 2015/2016 and they were direct support in Klingande’s annual pool party in Miami.

Featuring warm synths and soothing chords, ‘Hope For Tomorrow’ showcases the perfect blend of all three artists’ unique styles.

Alongside the Frenchman on the track are US trio Autograf, who played London’s Ministry of Sound, Coachella, and EDC Las Vegas as part of a hectic 2017 touring schedule. They’re joined by Canadian trio Dragonette, who have amassed over 45 million Spotify streams on their Martin Solveig and Mike Mago collaborations ‘Hello’ and ‘Outlines’.

‘Hope For Tomorrow’ is the latest in a long-line of huge anthems for the French producer, who broke through with ‘Jubel – surpassing over 100 million streams on Spotify to date. Acting as an aural embodiment of all three artist’s melodic-pop styles, ‘Hope For Tomorrow’ serves as Klingande’s follow up to his previous single, ‘Pumped Up’ a clever rendition of Foster The People’s infectious original version. Set to add to the Frenchman’s thrilling year ahead, it’s certain that ‘Hope For Tomorrow’ will add to the excitement surrounding Klingande.

NAXXOS first EP and new set-up

A year ago, after months of reflexion and meetings, we decided to start a project that would go through 2017. The purpose here was to release several singles in a few months and their debut EP.

After teasing with singles: Thief, Paper Tiger and Not Alone. They finally released the Animal EP on December 1st, a six tracks project with five different collaborators (M.Maggie, Raphaella, Young Animal Hearts, Dionne Bromfield and Kate Garné).

But the main challenge on this timeline was to make their sound evolve from their tropical house debut to this new electronic future bass / trap sound. The remaining touch of Naxxos being the melodic vibe that they kept in all their tracks.

We started Naxxos as a project to vent creativity and ended up being limited by new borders. In the very first place, long before Naxxos, we used to produce more heavy hitting stuff like Drum and Bass and tried our own style by emulating early days Major Lazer/Diplo kinda stuff. Future Bass is like a good mix between our roots and how we’ve evolved over the years. In a way it’s like going one step back, but two forth. We’ve also learned from that experience and made it our prime rule to always evolve our music without thinking about how people will react.” Naxxos

Following on this renewal, we created a common element in order to fit the new artworks. That’s when we designed the double XX idea with the help of their new independent label “Le Sofa” and graphic designer Valentin Fillet.

Finally, we developped a new way to present the tracks for promo and future events, switching from a standard dj set to a live orientated performance. A year after recording Animal with singer Dionne Bromfield in London, they came back to the same studios with her to record a new live version for the online US media: Uproxx.

Keep an eye on Naxxos newest set-up, as they promised more singles to come in 2018!

KLINGANDE came back to his hometown in a stadium

One very particular gig was part of Klingande’s worldwide summer tour, the first edition of the North Summer Festival. Unique for a lot of reasons, including that he was playing before the international star acts Martin Garrix and Justin Bieber, but also special because it was held in one of the biggest indoor venue in France, the Pierre Mauroy stadium, in Lille the hometown of the artist, where the first steps of his career begun.

This event was full of emotions for the artist and Unity Group’s team as it symbolizes the journey and work that has led Klingande from a bedroom producer to an international act, from a 500 people first gig to a 30 000 capacity stadium.
