  1. Kleerup can certainly be accused of repeating the same tricks over and over, but at least he has some remarkably effective (if not immensely distinctive) tricks — essentially, moderately paced and genially thumping robo-disco beats wedded to majestically buoyant chord progressions, played on synths that somehow manage to sound lush and punchy at the same time, with some bonus keyboard flutters for icing.
  2. This one is as strong and consistent as it is makes it all the more special.
  3. Yep, it's the face of a guy who just recorded an accomplished, cohesive debut, one that should please fans of "blog house" and Swedish pop alike. Now if only he owned a razor.
  4. Q Magazine
    Seemingly made with the camper kind of dancefloors in mind is the self-titled first album of surging Euro synth-pop from Sweden writer/producer, Kleerup. [Jun 2009, p.134]
  5. 'With Every Heartbeat' is evidence enough that this man has talent. He just needs to use that Rolodex a bit more.
  6. It's a much cleaner, subtle, more uplifting sound, but one which, ultimately, is a little devoid of personality.
  7. In listening to Kleerup all the way through, it’s obvious that he has the potential to be one of the best dance producers alive: he just has to learn how to grow first.
