Canblaster is the pseudonym of French DJ and producer Cédric Steffens, and one fourth of French dance music clique Club Cheval.[1]

Since his first major release in 2010, Steffens has remixed tracks by Erol Alkan, Drop the Lime and Rusko.

Biography[edit]

Steffens grew up in Douai, in the North of France. He began his music career as a teenager, by producing tracks for the In The Groove video game series.

Steffens' breakthrough as a dance music producer came through with his first release called "Jetpack". Jetpack was heavily supported by British DJ Sinden, of whom Steffens would later go to remix.

His second EP, "Master of Complications", was released on Nightshifters in 2011, with a third EP - "Totem" - on Marble.
