Genre: Progressive

Khen makes his Anjunadeep debut with his primal double cut ‘Closing Doors / Burgundy’. Much like the coveted club dancefloors he has toured around the world, Khen’s production is inimitably deep, dark, and intense.

Deep, dark, and intense, ‘Closing Doors’ weaves dreamlike synths amongst animalistic drums, whilst ‘Burgundy’ sees the Israeli producer bounce a seductive bassline off of a punchy percussion mix, masterfully showcasing his command of tension and release.

A modern stalwart of the Tel Aviv underground house scene, Khen attributes his place in the industry to his rich history of music. Khen immersed himself in the world of dance music at an early age under the tutelage of his older brother. When not busy learning how to play the piano, 6-year-old Khen mixed records using two cassette decks. When he stood before a set of Technics 1210s for the first time, he was yet to blow out the candles on the day of his 9th birthday.

After years of honing his skills both in the studio and behind the decks, his music hit the ears of Guy Mantzur in 2011, who promptly signed him to his Plattenbank imprint. Proving to become a catalyst event, the then 22-year-old Khen regained his determination to pursue music. He saw his international breakthrough in 2016 when he released his critically acclaimed debut album ‘One Day of Independence’ on Guy J’s Lost & Found. The LP saw support from the likes of Pete Tong, Noir, Dubfire, Joris Voorn, Hernan Cattaneo, Jeremy Olander, Paco Osuna and made the coveted number 1 spot on the overall releases chart in mere days.

Going from strength to strength in 2018 with a lot more to bring to the table, all signs point to 2019 becoming an even bigger year for Khen.
