K-Klass are responsible for some of the biggest dance tracks ever made. For over quarter of a century they have rocked dance floors and live gigs without fail, racking up no fewer than 5 UK top 40 hits and a GRAMMY Nomination along the way. That combined with a remix Hit List to die for, including Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lisa Stansfield, New Order, Bobby Brown, Rihanna and many, many more all adding up to millions of sales/Internet views world wide.
Meeting in 1988, in the Legendary Manchester club, the Hacienda, K-Klass soon teamed up with vocalist Bobbi Depasois (who they work with to this day). Hits such as “Rhythm is a Mystery” and “Let Me Show You” soon followed. In the early days the group were best known for their live performances, notching up over 300 full live shows. They cut their teeth playing live at huge raves as well as iconic clubs such as The Hacienda, Cream, Ministry of Sound and many others. Offers of remix and production work followed the hit records. In 1995 K-Klass won the International Dance Awards Remixer Of The Year Award, then followed that in 2002 with a GRAMMY Nomination. The 44th annual Grammy’s saw K-Klass nominated as the first UK artist ever in the best remix category.
To this day K-Klass continue to rock dance floors across the UK and world wide. Showcasing both upfront and classic house music in their sets. Alongside DJ ing live, K-Klass also syndicate a monthly “Klass Action” Radio show to over 100 fm/internet stations worldwide.
Klass Action, K-Klass’ record label was set up in 2012 alongside former Stealth records label manager Bas Jansen.
