artist biography

Starting out in 2006 and at the begining a duo, Citizen Kain soon found themselves catapulted into the midst of the international scene. Initially releasing on the Barcelona label Regular, they were signed for several EPs delivering a quality Electro Techno feel before releasing their first album «Body Bombshell » in 2007.

It wasn’t until 2008 when their style began to evolve and gravitate towards a techno vibe that they really began to make the headlines. With the release of their hit « Doppelgänger » on MBF, they enjoyed playlisting across the techno community with the single finding its way through dancefloors all over the world. This was followed by several EPs on labels such as Killabeat, Malatoid, and Harthouse.

In 2009, after several releases on MBF and Playmobil, Chris left the band for professional reasons and Bruno who still had been the leader of Citizen Kain continues alone the project. He left the studio with the first two releases on his own label under his belt and built its reputation rapidly by signing up remix talent from the likes of international artists such as Uto Karem, Pfirter, Pablo Bolivar, The Hacker, Mihalis Safras, Spartaque, Alex Di Stefano, Kiko or Dandi e Ugo, as well as the best of emerging talent including Leghau, Worakls, Hans Bouffmyhre or Angy Kore … His releases enjoy regular support from artists such as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Tomcraft, Len Faki, Monika Kruse, Dave Clarke, John Acquaviva, Felix krocher, Slam, Joseph Capriati, Ahmet Sendil, Mihalis Safras, Martin Eyerer, Agoria, Electric Rescue, etc... to named a few.

Today, Citizen Kain’s music consistently demonstrates a respect for purist techno with powerful, chunky beats carefully arranged with energetic percussion and haunting melodies. The entertaining performances and infectious energy during his sets leaves no dancefloor unturned !
