Fritz Kalkbrenner (Born 1981 in Berlin) is a German DJ and music producer.

Life and career[edit]

Since 2002, Kalkbrenner has worked as a culture and music journalist for TV stations including MDR, MTV and Deutsche Welle.

In 2008, he produced the soundtrack for the motion picture Berlin Calling with his brother Paul Kalkbrenner. The track Sky and Sand was his breakthrough in the music business.

Unlike compositions by his brother, Paul, Fritz’s music is warmer – his cold electro-beats are influenced by warm soul-sounds and is a distinguishing characteristic from other electronic artists. His music is more deep with the use of low bass drums and tangos.

Family connection[edit]

Fritz Kalkbrenner is a grandson of the East German artist Fritz Eisel[1] and younger brother of Paul Kalkbrenner.
