Who Is Klaas? 

Klaas Gerling (born January 3, 1981), simply known as Klaas. He has remixed songs for Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike (2016), DJ AntoineStromaeArmand Van Helden and Eric Morillo. He is best known for his remix of "Infinity" by Guru Josh, which peaked 1st on the Belgian chart and 2nd on the Dutch chart in 2008. Producing Infinity 2008 (Klaas Vocal Edit) resulted in Gold, Silver and Platinum records in many countries.

 

Early Career:

Raised inCologne, Klaas was exposed to music at a young age. He first played drums in various local bands. His early passion for electro dance music turned out to become the foundation for Klaas’ career that encouraged him doing remixes, first with “Micha Moors – Space”. Klaas’ remixes became famous all over the world and weren’t just highly successful within the German Dance Charts and Beatport during several weeks, he was also supported by well-known DJs such as Tiesto, David Guetta and Moby.

 

The 2007 released Klaas single „The Way” was a great opportunity for him to show his diversity in production innovation in the electro house scene. It climbed from 0 to #2 of the German Dance Charts within the first week and stayed in top 10 for several weeks of all relevant dance charts. The ensuing release „Klaas meets Haddaway – What Is Love 2K9” stormed the top 10 of numerous Dance Charts. His own release "Our Own Way" reached in 2009 the top 10 inFrance.

 

After he released series of sensational instrumental EPs like „Wild Beast“ he strikes in 2013 again with the hit-singles „Hold This Moment”, „Flight To Paris, „Night To Remember“ and „Heartbeat“. Klaas also generates buzz with his remix of R.I.O.’s (feat. U-Jean) summer hit „Ready Or Not”. Tying up with his long range of productions a year later, Klaas dropped “Party Like We’re Animals”.

End of 2014, Klaas would then team up with the Swiss newcomer Mazza and present his single „Here We Go“, which made it in the first week in the podcasts and sets of famous DJs such as Hardwell and Showtek, that took on Klaas’ production at the “Tomorrow Land“ festival.

Since 2016 Klaas is collaborating with Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and MATTN to produce remakes of past club hits such as "Ocarina", "CafeDel Mar" and "Universal Nation".

 

Gold, Silver and Platinum: 

“Infinity 2008” resulted in Gold, Silver and Platinum records inGermany,United Kingdom,DenmarkandNorway. And yes, he did it again! Ten years after his world hit remix of Infinity 2008 his remake "Sean Finn X Guru Josh - Infinity 2018 (Klaas Remix)" reached high positions in the iTunes charts of 5 countries (#9 inGermany). This time however, with the worldwide support of well-known DJs, such as DJs like Dimity Vegas & Like Mike, R3hab, Blasterjaxx, W&W, Mike Candys, Fedde Le Grand and David Guetta! So we look forward to true EDM sound a’ la Klaas´ style! The high demand of world-class DJs for collaboration with talented Klaas resulted in the production of his single “Calavera” reaching the top 4 of the German DJ Playlist, and of course - the famous „DVLM vs Klaas Edit“ of „Cafe Del Mar“ was released in an amazing video on Smash The House Records.

 

Klaas turned into a 'Youtube Sensation': 

The official music video to his 2008 remix of „Guru Josh’s- Infinity”, counts over 100.000.000 views on YouTube, making it one of the most watched videos worldwide.

In a collaboration with the Bodybangers he landed two more hit singles „Freak“ and „I Like“ which made it not just to the top of all Dance Charts, but also to the German and Austrian Single Charts. Furthermore both of the official music videos clocked over 10 million views on YouTube.

Due to its high output of successful own releases and remixes Klaas cracked in March 2019 Spotify the 2 million mark in the monthly listeners.
