Swedish producer Patrik Kindvall has had a truly impressive start to his career as an artist as Klur. Two years after his debut release, he has harnessed his gorgeous melodic/prog house sound on the ten tracks that make up his debut album Visions.
It’s this same sound that has earned him a loyal following with over a million monthly listeners on Spotify, millions of streams across all platforms, DJ support from Lane 8, Madeon, Tritonal, Above & Beyond and more, all while is recognized as the third most streamed artist on SiriusXM Chill in the past year.
Klur has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting artists in his lane and Visions sees him bring his immaculate sound to life on ten glowing tracks that come together in a cohesive and thoughtful way.
Most of the album sees him fly solo, though he brings in Swedish vocalist Hildur Ottilia for a soulful collaboration ‘Heart To Heart’, and enlists the efforts of Oslo-based songwriter Ole-Bjørn Talstad for a gorgeous reworking. from ‘Tangled’. It has grown from strength to strength and Visions is an impressive and exceptional project from an artist just starting out.
A remix version of Visions, featuring re-imaginings by artists including Fejka, Modera and Martin Rott, will be released in April 2023.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing Klur and this has been the result.
Thanks for talking to us. Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Hey my pleasure! Right now, I’m at home in my studio. My morning routine usually starts with 20 min meditation, breakfast. Running/training on some days.
When did the idea of starting a musical project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
It’s always been there in different forms. A few years I was a composer for media/films and before that I did several other club genres in music. 2019 was probably the year I decided to focus on Melodic deep house.
What are some of the key techniques behind your approach to DJing and live performance?
Always keep it interesting and new for me and the audience.
How much time do you tend to spend digging for new music?
It happens automatically but I would say a few hours per week.
What other artists are you interested in these days?
Right now we are releasing a remix album of my album “Visions” with some of my favorite artists that I listen to. It’s been so much fun to hear my tracks reinterpreted by such talents.
Can you tell us anything about your projects for 2023?
I’ve got more music in the pipe ready to be released. A few collabs coming up and a few live shows. It’s going to be an exciting year!
