The Parisian duo is consisted by Dorian Lo and César de Rummel, two childhood friends whose musical adventures were reignited when they delved into the world of deep house in 2014. Since then, their tracks have been rich with laidback, feel-good vibes as demonstrated by ‘You Don’t Know Me’ (with Brodie Barclay), ‘What I Want’ (with KarlK) and ‘Around the Fire’, which featured on the ‘Crosswalk, Vol. 1’ compilation alongside the likes of Kungs and Nicolas Haelg.
OFENBACH quickly developed a reputation as one of their nation’s hottest new electronic artists. They were nominated for Best New Talent by DJ Mag in France and picked for Spotify France’s New Talent 2017 playlist. Their remixing skills have been called upon by everyone from Bob Sinclair to James Bay, and “Katch”i, a collaboration with the r’n’b, blues and soul star, Nick Waterhouse, is their most-watched video on YouTube.
Building on the initial momentum, OFENBACH dropped their first track for Big Beat Paris with ‘Be Mine’. After already impacting in charts back home – including a #4 position on the iTunes Electronic Chart and a Top 10 entry on Shazam’s Futurs Hits – ‘Be Mine’ was discovered by a wider international audience.
With ‘Be Mine’, OFENBACH present a sound that unites two often contradictory sounds as their chilled electro is boosted with flourishes of live instrumentation drawn from their love of rock and blues. Already immediately insistent, ‘Be Mine’ is completed by a coolly understated lead vocal.
OFENBACH can now boast with more than 250 million views on YouTube, and their series of remixes, Monthly Delights, attracted a cult following for their carefully made playlists with new tracks, remixes and old favourites.
