2022 has been a blowout for French DJ and production duo Ofenbach. This year has seen the pair juggle a packed summer tour of more than 60 performances and a US tour with studio time, they told German outlet BigFM: “We feel it in our heads, shoulders, knees and toes”. After the pandemic they were welcomed back to touring with a mighty invitation to play the mainstage at Tomorrowland which, needless to say, was a huge honour for them.
In the studio, Ofenbach have been building up to their debut album ‘I’, which drops on the November 4th via Warner Music. Singles ‘Love Me Now feat. FAST BOY’ and ‘4U’ were well received by their fan-base. Aside from album prep, Ofenbach couldn’t resist the chance to put their twist on a tune from two of the world’s pop treasures, Coldplay and Selena Gomez. Their rolling remix of ‘Let Somebody Go’ dropped back in April, just in time for festival season. Now all eyes are on the album.
