Klangkarussell’s new single ‘Shipwreck’ is the follow-up to the Austrian electronic music duo’s recent track, ‘Ghostkeeper’. Available now via their Bias Beach imprint, ‘Shipwreck’ is a vocal-led track with the melodic touches that have been Klangkarussell’s style since their tracks ‘Sonnentanz’ and ‘Time’. An extended version of the single will be released on 11 June, alongside, ‘My World’, a 10-minute long club cut featuring a vocal from Kyle Pearce.
Their last single, ‘Ghostkeeper’, the collaboration with singer/songwriter, GIVVEN, has now hit over three million streams, hitting No.1 and No.8 in the Austrian and German iTunes Electronic charts). The track was the second release on Bias Beach, and saw them head into downtempo territory. Adrian and Tobi also directed the video for the single.
The duo returned last September with ‘Comoros’, their first new music in over two years, and the debut release on their new label, Bias Beach. ‘Comoros’ followed a summer of festival performances and shows that saw them play to crowds in the UK, Europe, Beirut and South America.
Forthcoming shows have been cancelled and rescheduled where possible due to coronavirus. They’ll join Booka Shade at London’s Electric Brixton on 9 October for their next UK performance.
Klangkarussell, which translates to English as "Sound Carousel" -- were formed in Salzburg, Austria by Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held. Both roducers in their own right, they first broke through with the jazz-tinged instrumental club record ‘Sonnentanz’, which reached the Top 10 singles chart in 6 different countries, including No.1 in The Netherlands.
Like many dance artists faced with unexpected success, a record they’d written for their own DJ sets had taken on a life of its own, and when a vocal version - retitled ‘Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine)’ and featuring British soul singer Will Heard - was released the following summer, the track charted in both the UK and Ireland, apparently going on to become one of the biggest dance records of this decade..
