WET® Deck up at W Kuala Lumpur kick off their first Wet Sessions series for 2020 on 7 February with Eelke Kleijn an underground artist, but one who has effortlessly made the jump into the wider world when the time and opportunity have felt right.
Three albums into a well established yet still rapidly ascending career, Kleijn is very much in his element. His latest artist album, Moments Of Clarity, is the apex of his work so far, blending progressive, ambient, epic breakbeat, deep house and melodic techno in perfect harmony to create an album that is as at home on the dance floor as it is on the home stereo.
His remixes for the likes of John Legend, Pendulum and James Newton Howard and Jennifer Lawrence are also testament to his ability to reach wider audiences without giving up on his core values.
With a background playing piano, guitar and bass and a healthy sideline in composing for film and TV, his productions are imbued with a deep sense of musicality and emotion, always engendering a strong sense of space, place and occasion. His work scoring Hollywood blockbusters like Rush, Parker and This Means War has been met with great acclaim.
Local progressive stalwart Terence C takes on support duties as does W resident Adam Khan.
