Hits like «Back Home» made Fritz Kalkbrenner famous all around the world. He inspires fans with his distinctive voice combined with techno beats and melodic elements. He likes to use guitar samples or elements from funk, jazz and hip hop which gives his electronic music a very special touch.
At the end of the 1990s Fritz Kalkbrenner was blown away by techno and turned into a devotee of the clubbing scene as did many others of his generation. Legendary clubs in Berlin such as WMF, Tresor and Suicide Circus became his haunts for doing a new kind of research. Partying feverishly, Fritz decided to start making music himself. One thing he knew for sure – his voice would be featured on the tracks. With the release of Forms & Shapes in 2003, a plaintive piece appearing on Sascha Funke’s debut album Bravo, his very first step as a singer immediately landed him a veritable club hit. Further collaborations followed with artists such as Alexander Kowalski, DJ Zky and Monika Kruse.
With the 2010 release of his debut album «Here Today Gone Tomorrow», Fritz is celebrated for a soul sound made on all his own. Something akin to Balearic guitar riffs meet warm house beats hover over a cinematic and melancholic sound. And rising above it all is Fritz’s voice. Since then, he’s been jetting non-stop from one club and festival to the next.
