Rey & Kjavik, known for his smooth tunes that take you on a delightful journey not only in your mind but in your soul and physical being. Sundaze welcomes Rey & Kjavik to their beloved little terrace for a Funday Sunday 11 February at Elysium Bar & Terrace KL. Think super small scale Burning Man vibes. Let your body groove to the melodic rhythms before you start your week, music is always the answer.
Rey & Kjavik was introduced to electronic music in Frankfurt's seminal techno scene, contributing to the scene as a booker, and organizing his own events as well. He chose the alias Rey & Kjavik because he wanted people to react to his music in an unbiased fashion.
His first songs were released on Berlin's Kindlich, followed by releases and remixes on Compost Black Label, Get Physical, KingStreet, Exploited and Katermukke. For his heavy basslines and the elaborate breaks of the past five years, Rey & Kjavik was cherished everywhere. For the right reasons, these numbers are direct and effective, yet sophisticated and credible.
With his debut album though, Rey & Kjavik begins the second chapter in his work. There was no external motivation for this break. So how did this new impulse come about? By travelling. Traveling to places like Istanbul, New York and San Francisco, as well as countries like Ukraine or Georgia changed his perspective on his own life and taught him a new modesty.
By travelling he understood that he is able to reach his fans on another, rather profound level. The first, formative experience in this direction was his appearance at Burning Man in 2015 at "The Kazbah". Traveling back to Germany he processed what happened to him in this incomparable place in the desert, composing the first piece of music, "Playa Sunset", which is one of the highlights of the album.
Sunday’s line-up will also feature Sundaze resident OtherKind as well as Obadius..
