‘Follow’ is another marvelous collaboration that brings together the producer duo Klangkarussell and Toronto-based vocalist and songwriter GIVVEN. The early spring and summer releases ‘Ghostkeeper‘ and ‘Glue,’ of Klangkarussell & GIVVEN, are a solid omen and an exciting ride. However, ‘Follow’ is starkly distinct from the prior releases. Issued via Bias Beach Records, Klangkarussell – Follow combines the strong foothold of symphonic melodies and GIVVEN’s alluring vocals. The track is a superb play of artistic strengths that bring forth an outstanding product that is applause-worthy.
‘Follow’ is the third collaboration between Klangkarussell & GIVVEN that features elegant vocals and eloquent percussion. The song has a beautiful melody as the richly layered synths, and resonating basslines are propelled forward by the gleaming vocals. This uplifting Melodic House & Techno track is loaded with Klangkarussell’s signature style moving from deep tones to high notes, making it hard to resist. The depth and wit of the vocals and musical arrangements corroborate that the collaborating artists have honed their craft well.
This track’s zealous melody and driving beats drop in under the escalating synths and whistling motifs, which is flawlessly captivating. Klangkarussell – Follow with GIVVEN has elements of reverberance and pulsating energy synonymous with the Melodic House & Techno groove. The distinct vocal flow accentuates the assertive, shiny vibe of the song. The beat provides a nice balance in the track, driving the tune forward in a style that compliments the rhythm. The melody is unapologetically memorable, showing sharp stylistic impressions of the artists. This Bias Beach Records production feels like a welcoming breath of fresh air in an overcrowded atmosphere.
Klangkarussell – Follow with GIVVEN transmits confidence and thoughtful vocals making the flow tight, with the top-notch production, which transforms the track into a delightful sonic experience to cherish. The song feels like a modern take on tempestuous melodies that fit into a sleek and immersive vibe. However, the track never skids away from its elegant groove. The song is just as mesmeric as the duo’s previous tunes, ‘Shipwreck’ and ‘My World’ if not more. Issued on Bias Beach Records, ‘Follow’ is effortlessly delicious.

More About Klangkarussell:
Klangkarussell returned last September with ‘Comoros’, their first new music in over 2 years, and the debut release on their new label, Bias Beach. ‘Comoros’ followed a summer of standout festival performances and sold out headline shows that saw them play to crowds in the UK (sold out Night Tales London), Europe (including taking the Saturday night honours at Benicassim), Beirut and South America.
This January, Tobi and Adrian played another sold out headline show at Night Tales London (which saw queues around the block), with further DJ dates in Europe and beyond. 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 respected producers 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 it’s 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, going on to become one of the biggest dance records of this decade (despite the pair shunning all publicity).
Following the success of ‘Sonnentanz’, the duo then released their second single, ‘Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)’, featuring vocalist Tom Havelock, and which also became a hit. Klangkarussell’s debut album, ‘Netzwerk’, appeared soon after and sporting the singles ‘Hey Maria’ and ‘In the Crowd Alone’ appeared in 2016, followed by ‘Time’, ‘Circuits’, and ‘Good to Go’ in 2017.
After spending the last two years on the road, the duo’s second album is now within their sights. Musically, and with the type of creative freedom they had during their initial rise to fame, both Tobi and Adrian have entered a new decade exactly where they want to be.
