"I'm ready to unleash the second phase of my career and come up with something interesting," says Sander Kleinenberg.
Exciting news, but in truth the Dutch don has already made such a massive impact on DJing that it's difficult to imagine where he's gonna go next. Known for his next-level mastery of DVJing, fusing chopped and blended visuals with journeys into electronic dance music of all shades, he's got the next level audio-visual skills down pat.
This year he's had some memorable gigs all over, with show-stopping sets at Club Kristal, Bucharest, and some particular faves in Ibiza and Russia.
"I really enjoyed Pacha this year and I had an amazing gig in Moscow as well," recalls Sander.
This year's also seen the release of a new mix album from the DJ, 'This Is Sander Kleinenberg', with two CDs focusing on a deeper sound than what many may associate with the progressive house purveyor.
"This time I wanted to do something a bit more mature. I tried to capture some music that was relevant. It's something a little more classic, a little more timeless."
The next step for Kleinenberg is to move further in the direction of DVJing, which DJmag can exclusively reveal will take the form of an audiovisual album.
"I'm going to do a video album," confirms Sander. "I've finally finished developing it and I'm ready to take it to the next level, which involves original production combined with video and making that into a rolling movie document, hopefully filled with my personality and what I want to get across."
