Emerging from the city of Mozart’s birth, Salzburg, Adrian Held and Tobias Rieser have made global waves so far as Klangkarussell – ‘Sonnentanz’ (video below) will have snuck into your earholes whether you liked it or not.
With the concert and the club linking arms more than ever these days, crossover dance acts are greatly in demand, and so the duo is doing a top job of fulfilling this brief.
The festival crowds are so close you can almost smell the Budweiser and Batiste, yet the gargantuan EDM-style synth rises are made less offensive by an array of live-sounding percussion and powerful vocal hits.
Fun, lifting, but not a whole lot more, ‘Netzwerk’ is clear in its mission, but doesn’t claim to be anything it’s not.
