Reaching the end to his US tour with an intimate performance this Saturday night @ HARLOT in San Francisco, the house legend Sander Kleinenberg took a minute to to tell us how the summer has been how he’s evolved with the scene…
GDD: You’re nearing the end of your US Summer Tour. How have the shows been so far? Bigger scale or more intimate performances?
SK: Shows have been great, mostly intimate clubs, 500 capacity hang outs, but also a festival in Chicago that really was fun to do.
GDD: Whats the difference you see in the US tour dates versus playing shows like your ibiza residency?
SK: Not a lot to be honest, house music is a universal thing you know ; )
GDD: You’ve been DJng and producing for over 15 years – how has the music scene shaped your sound from what it was to where it is now? Was there outside influence or have you always made your own path?
SK: I travel a path less travelled and took some chances that ended up being inspiring and exciting, its not always the easiest path but its the most rewarding in the end. i dont really have major influences but people like Larry Levan, Laurent Garnier, Diplo, Sasha etc are heroes to me. People that made and make a difference.
GDD: Who are some of your favorite producers right now?
SK: I love Sharam Jey, Kolombo, Botan, i like that low tempo funk disco thing they call Nu-Disco a lot.
GDD: You play HARLOT in San Francisco this Saturday. What’s so special about the city?
SK: San Francisco always has the wind of change blowing through its fundaments, thats a fact that is very exillerating.
Come out to Harlot SF tomorrow for an intimate DJ set from Sander, alongside our very own BONES!
