You already know Sander Kleinenberg's music, although you may not be aware of that fact. You probably first heard it at a certain Park West nightclub at 8 a.m. while rolling so hard that you actually thought you were in Ibiza. But you weren't in Ibiza — Kleinenberg's track came on to save the day, reminding you, "This Is Miami!" He may have scored his biggest club hit to date with that 2006 track, but the Dutch DJ has been a familiar name to tranceheads across the globe since the early '90s. With his latest Ultra Records release, This Is Sander Kleinenberg 2, he mixes tracks by familiar names like Phonique, Stimming, and Mason and even throws in an original track, "This Is Our Night," for good measure. The track doesn't stray too far from what made "This Is Miami" so popular. It lets listeners know, "This is our sound/This is our truth/Our religion/Our youth." Cheesy lyrics aside, Kleinenberg is skillful behind the decks, and he'll surely prove it to a likely more sober South Beach crowd.
