REVIEW: Klingande feat. M22 - Somewhere New incl remixes out on Universal Germany

The French pioneer of house music Klingande is back with another hit: "Somewhere New" in collaboration with DJ and producer duo M-22. The track is on the label Ultra (and EGO in Italy, Universal in GSA, Sony / Jive Epic France and Family Tree in Scandinavia).

The combination of female soul voice, guitar melody, soft bass and calm piano make the single a perfect and danceable summer hit.

Klingande biggest hit "Cheers" has to date over 72 million streams on Spotify and 144 million views on YouTube. Despite this enormous success, the French DJ rests in no way but works diligently in 2016 to turn it into his most successful year. With the track "Riva" he laid in 2015 the foundation stone for this successful year. "Losing U" followed in February 2016 and reached more than 2 million views on YouTube and almost 8.5 million streams on Spotify. And this year he not only promises many more hits but also a very special live tour: He has secured support by various musicians playing to his beats live guitar, violin, harmonica, drums or even saxophone. Thus Klingande is clearly on the fast track for 2016 and we are anxious to see what there is still to come!

 [item value="10"]Klingande feat. M22 - Somewhere New[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The excellent Klingande is back with another instant anthem this time with the support of M22. The track Somewhere New is a beautiful electronic pop deep house production with balearic guitar riffs, funky deep basslines, chunky driving grooves and uplifting piano chords along with cinematic strings and warm atmosphere that keep you swinging and dancing. The female vocals are just ace with that romantic sweet nostalgic tone that adds that great folk music touch to the superb hit that makes you wanna simply feel it from head to toe. The summer is coming slowly to an end and this top track will make you remember it for ever. The remix package will bring more happiness as well. M22 Club edit is the mainstage future house version with pumping basslines, thumping grooves and great atmosphere with acoustic guitar riff in the breakdown that will mesmerize your ears. Solidisco remix moves in the tropical house direction with relaxing grooves, driving basslines, xylophone melodies and sunkissed atmosphere. Epic Empire remix is moving in the trap style with that slow jamming sexy trap groove. Lastly for those chill out moments Naxxos remix is smooth dreamy relaxing and absolutely mesmerising. #PureGold Love It[/content]
