Paul Kalkbrenner is a German techno-musician and electronic music producer born in 1977. He released his debut album Superimpose in 2001. Following the release of his third album Self in 2004, Kalkbrenner was approached by the German film director Hannes Stöhr. He wanted to cooperate with Paul for the creation of a movie soundtrack for a film that Stöhr was planning to direct. The film was about a Berlin DJ during the 2000s. Paul Kalkbrenner then ended up with the leading role in the film. The soundtrack also included the song ”Sky and Sand” featuring the vocals of his brother Fritz Kalkbrenner. Since then Kalkbrenner has recorded four more studio albums and performed at many festivals around the world including Mad Cool and Coachella.
