Andreas Kleerup, known professionally by his last name, is a Swedish record producer, drummer,[1] and member of the Swedish group The Meat Boys, from Stockholm, Sweden.[2] His first mainstream collaboration was as the producer of fellow Swedish artist Robyn's #1 UK single, "With Every Heartbeat", also included on Kleerup's self titled debut album.[3] He is currently in his own band called Me and My Army which in 2011 released their debut album Thank God for Sending Me Demons.

He wrote and produced the song "Lay Me Down" with Cyndi Lauper for her 2008 album Bring Ya to the Brink. An instrumental version of the song appears on Kleerup's album under the title "Thank You for Nothing". The title was believed to be inspired by Kleerup's anger with Cyndi Lauper for not allowing her version to appear on his album, but this was later confirmed as a false rumor in an interview.[4] Turns out the song was originally made before he gave it to Cyndi Lauper, and he decided to use the original version on his album instead.

His song, "Until We Bleed" featuring Lykke Li, was featured in the British television show, Misfits.

Kleerup composed and recorded the music for the interval act at the first semifinal on May 14 of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö, titled "Northern Light".
