Dutch producer Eelke Kleijn drops the second track of his highly anticipated fourth studio album out on September 25th. Just a month after announcing his comeback with bassline-heavy track ‘The Magician’, Eelke reveals even more of his genius production skills with ‘The Hierophant’.
Just after the track starts off a heavy bass kicks in and electrifying snare sounds start spinning around. Melodic and transcending notes come in, revealing a softer side of the production. A drum drop shortly pauses the reeling rhythm, only to kick off the track stronger again. Sharp and structural synths bring the track to an extraordinary whirlwind of sounds, guaranteed to transport the listener into ethereal dimensions.
“The Hierophant for me is a track that was influenced by the 80s vibe and growing up in that era. I especially wanted to write something in major key and I was experimenting with slightly out of tune instruments. I think those pads and the main synth give this track its very recognisable feel”says Eelke.
‘The Hierophant’ is part of Eelke Kleijn’s fourth studio album out on September 25th!
‘The Hierophant’ is out now on DAYS like NIGHTS

In the grand scheme of things, he’s an underground artist, but one who has effortlessly made the jump into the wider world when the time and opportunity have felt right. With a background playing piano, guitar, and bass and a healthy sideline in composing for film and TV, his productions are imbued with a deep sense of musicality and emotion. Remixing for the likes of John Legend, Pendulum, James Newton Howard & Jennifer Lawrence, and scoring Hollywood blockbusters like Rush, Parker, and This Means War, Eelke Kleijn really excels in everything he sets his mind to. His latest artist album ‘Moments Of Clarity’ is the apex of his work so far, combining deep house and techno in perfect harmony. His multi-faceted platform ‘DAYS like NIGHTS’ emcompasses a label, a radio show, a podcast, and spectacular parties, firmly establishing him as one of the scene’s most creative and pioneering producers.
