3Beat present Kungs Vs. Cookin On 3 Burners "This Girl"
Saturday 9th April 2016
Kungs (pronounced Koongs), a 19 years old Dj / producer also known as Valentin Brunel, started his musical career with a djembe gifted by his parents to him at the age of five. From these early days Valentin could spend entire afternoons listening to Rock’n’Roll classics with his father. From The Who to The Kooks with many in-between, this essential listening forged the first steps to Kungs inspiration as an artist.
Discovering a passion for electronic music in his teenaged years, Kungsbecame infused with interest for melodic sounds and crafted timbres always lead by a dominant vocal. By the age of seventeen his interests had evolved, and creating melodies utilising his own instruments became a passion.
Shortly after his first experiences with a digital production software, Valentin was sharing remixes across the board of online social networks. His remix of Bob Marley - ‘Jammin’ and Lana Del Rey ft Molly - ‘West Coast’ both boast several million plays on Soundcloud & YouTube.
After a few unofficial remixes, official remixes requests were around the corner. From Axwell & Ingrosso to Lost Frequencies, Kungs quickly became a key remixer for ye other DJ producers. Kungs’s remix of « Are you with me » counts now more than 16 million views on Youtube and almost 65.000 fans are following his Soundcloud page.
Simoultaneously, many original tracks became available from Kungs. Tracks such as his collaboration with Mozambo featuring Molly - ’To Describe you’ close to instantaneously hit one million plays on Soundcloud.
With early support slots with significant acts from many aspects of the melodic house landscape such as Kygo and Klingande, Kungs has quickly formed into a well established artist in the scene today with a tendency to provide driven and impressive production and live sets.
In January 2016, Kungs will travel the European continent alongsideDavid Guetta in order to ensure seven times the warm-up of his Listen Tour. On the music side, his last remix for the singer Julian Perretta will be release before the end of the year.
His first single is a killer house track based on a sample by COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS. The soulful vocal & the trumpet massive hook should haunt you (and the dancefloors) this spring. Until the summer !
