Sander Kleinenberg has spent much of his career trying to evade the typical trappings of the superstar DJ. Maintaining a humble appearance and giving his tracks titles like "Frog Dancing" and "Slipper Sleaze," Kleinenberg has succeeded in not taking himself too seriously. His stock in the world market has risen steadily over the past five years based on his abilities as a remixer, most notably in the case of Justin Timberlake's "Rock Your Body." Live, he sticks primarily to progressive and traditional house, with some experimental dance music from artists like Royksopp thrown in for good measure. As is fitting for this globe-trotting DJ, you can never tell where his sets will take you. Catch him this Friday, November 18, at the Church.
