Dante Klein has been working his way up through the scene over the last few years with some high quality tracks and a number of high profile collaborations. He has collaborated with the likes of Cheat Codes and Sam Feldt, while also remixing Bakemat and many others. With this, he has just released his new track ‘Coke & Hennessy’. Dante Klein now opens up about a number of topics including his new track, so check it all out below.

It has been an exciting few years for Dante Klein with many memorable moments to date. Can you tell us how it has been for you? Do you have a favourite stand out moment to date?

Hi! Yeah the last few years felt like a rollercoaster. I had some ups and downs but the best moment will be hitting over 250 million plays on spotify and receiving several platinums. I feel like thats a big appreciation for your work where you worked very hard for.

Tracks have arrived alongside the likes of Cheat Codes and Sam Feldt while also remixing Bakermat and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. What’s it like to know you collaborated with such artists and in some cases, added your sound to others tracks?

I’ve always wanted to work with such big artists, so it’s like a dream becoming reality.

New music has arrived from Dante Klein with a collaboration alongside The 87’s and Bone Thugs. Tell us a little about how ‘Coke & Hennessy’ came about?

Well I work a lot in Los Angeles to write and make music. I wrote the track together with the 87’s on a sketch I made earlier. And we got a lot of inspiration from the LA vibe so that’s why we chose to write about the old school vibe you had in LA back in the 90’s. After that we really wanted old school rappers on the track so we contacted the guys from bone thugs and they really loved the track. They recorded their verses right away actually.

What was it like to work with both The 87’s and Bone Thugs on the track? Do you have to look at the track in a different perspective?

I think it became a very cool crossover track. It consists of multiple genres like: R&B, Hip Hop, Future bass and overall pop.

In terms of the track, it has a different sound to it, hitting those Future Bass sounds as well as touching on those Hip-Hop crossover vibes. Is this a sound we can expect to hear from Dante Klein in the future?

Oh yes, you can absolutely expect this sound in the future.

The last few months have been extremely busy in terms of touring as well. Performances have taken place at Mysteryland, Tomorrowland and Ushuaia Ibiza. Has there been a favorite performance from the Summer?

That will be Sunrise Festival in Poland I think. Such an insane stage and the people went nuts!!

In terms of touring, have you ever struggled with the pressure of long flights, lack of sleep and other such elements which DJs suffer?

Actually, I like to fly so I never really struggle with that problem. So far, I maybe had one show this summer where I was really tired and didn’t felt like doing anything but yeah the show must go on!

While still being a rather young artist on the scene, do you ever feel that you will get to a point where you may fall out of love with the music industry?

I loved music all my life and I don’t see that day coming. Music became such a big part of my life now that I don’t think it will fade.

Looking towards the future, what can fans look forward to hearing from Dante Klein over the next few months and towards the end of the year?

A lot of new Dante music is coming soon!

On an overall note, is there anything we should be looking forward to?

I’m doing some cool shows at the end of this year and next year plus the music that’s coming out is just overall fire! Really excited to show you all what I made recently!
