During the past couple of years the now Copenhagen based Dane Rangleklods has created a following in the underground milieus of Berlin and Denmark through original and ambitious tracks paired with intense and ever-‐changing live performances.
Rangleklods' music captures its audience by seeing past conventions regarding genre and what's considered good and bad taste, simply giving in to the subconscious will of creative impulses while playfully utilizing the computer as a musical instrument of unreachable limits. The physically encouraging compositions unites a great sense of melody with sound experiments brought together by a charismatically deep but encompassing voice, thereby creating an absorbing universe that dares to speak directly to the emotions of the listener. About the rather nonsensical name Rangleklods says: “The name itself is to me an expression of the music’s playful, integrating and unbound nature. The emptiness of meaning in the word 'Rangleklods' -‐ cause there really isn't any -‐ has provided the space I needed to escape musical limitations and expectations, focusing on reaching an expression that binds together all the music, and sounds in general, that I care about.” The work was initially sketched out in home country Denmark, but became greatly colored by moving base to Berlin in early 2010 where routines were forgotten and the vast and eclectic scene sought out.
Rangleklods' sound consists of recorded instruments and analogue gear alongside purely digital and intensely programmed patterns intertwining into audioscapes ranging from Minimal Techno to 60's style 'Wall of Sound'. Both in that regard and composition-‐wise Rangleklods points just as much backwards towards David Bowie and The Doors as it does forwards, animated by such artists as James Holden and The Field.
