Amsterdam based Keith Carnal has in recent years become seen as somewhat of a tastemaker in today’s world of techno. It might not then come as a big surprise to you that he has also become a favoured producer among many who are seen as “techno mainstay”, gaining support from numerous of his own musical inspiratons and champions. Carnal, who grew up in a very musical home in the northern part of Holland, found techno at an early age when he began sourcing and selectng on his own. Techno was, and very much is, the frst music that made a deep impression on Keith.
This feeling only went on to become more cemented afer a few years of composing on his own. It simply became clearer and clearer that Carnal is exactly where he belongs. Keith’s own style of techno always has a strong emphasis on melodies and groove – it is made for dancing no doubt. Ofen the melody creates a rather ominous feeling for the listener, but with a certain melancholy to it. This is weighed up expertly with Keith focusing on the tracks being driven forward by strong percussion elements.
His compositons contain a fresh vibe that immerses his audience as much as it does with his fellow producer and DJ colleagues. Carnal’s own productons very much goes hand in hand with the selectons he makes as a DJ. A set of Keith’s always focuses on keeping the tempo and the groove up and going. Classic productons are mixed confdently with more current ones. His sets fourish with tracks that are atmospheric and contain strong melodic segments – tracks where percussion and bass play a major part in why being selected. For Keith Carnal creatng the right groove is the main target.
This year (2018) will see Keith releasing several strong productons as well as contnuing his extensive internatonal touring schedule, where he is headlining many of the major festvals and clubs. Keith Carnal is a fresh wind in today’s techno climate.
