Dejan Klemenc is ‘kLEMENZ’ a Slovenian DJ / Producer, Radio host and record label owner. Dejan’s clever weaving of multiple genres is the trademark of his sets, sweeping soulful, disco-tinged house, blend effortlessly through deep tech and afro-house, accumulating in well thought out melodic tech.

Dejan set the bar higher taking his ‘kLEMENZ’ branding to the live stage. Clever combinations of his electronic rhythms, complimented with instrumental and vocal inserts add a new and exciting dimension to Dejan’s already impressive performance. Dejan has played in the majority of the established clubs across Slovenia and has also been booked as far away as South Africa with several tour dates across the country from Pretoria, Johannesburg to Durban, resoulting a recidency in Austrian posh night club "LUX" in Villach.

In less then a year the label gained recognition among artists, DJs and music producers, resoulting with chartings on various Beatport and Traxsource charts on top positions.

When asked of his motivation behind performing Dejan said: "Ever since I first heard an underground house tune in 90`s played by one of the first (if not the first) house DJ in Slovenia - BORU TI, I fell in love with those rhythms and sounds. That's why I began my DJ journey in the late 90's. I had a simple mixer, two tape recorders, and a basic PA system playing large private parties. Just to be able to present my music to people in a way that made them connect right through to their soul was the best feeling in the world! There is no better feeling in a world than that connection, to be able to FEEL that same special moment together is simply magical!!!"

Dejan has been co-promoting a successful brand and underground event "zYpper" throughout Slovenia, which has gained a loyal and trusting following wherever they go. In 2018 he got involved also in a project "OG - Oldies Goldies" in club Mansion -Celje (Si)".

Apart sharing stage at mayor open air event in Slovenia "Natur Sound Festival" with Marko Nastić and Uto Karem, he has also appeared with his long time idol Paolo Barbato, Aleksij, Dave Manali, Dj SIlvain, Veztax and South African stars such as Casper Nyovest, Dj Crooks, twin brothers duo "Major League Djs", Dyrho, Bouks, Gravity and First Lady to name a few...

Dejan has taken some time off playing out to focus on his own productions, with early success with clever bootlegs on a number of platforms and even releasing his remix on a compilation on the French record label "Disco Balls". It was soon time for Dejan to push out his own music. It quickly found a home on the established US independent record label "Next Dimension Music" home to the likes of legendary Eddie Amador, Doc Link, Megamen NYC, William Rosario and Robb Swinga, support for the label has grown with Todd Terry taking a keen interest in all releases. One of Dejan’s tracks was selected by the label to appear as part of a compilation HELP to HEAL, raising funds for the victims of hurricane 'Maria' in Puerto Rico.
Furter on he succesfuly colaborated with South African " Letuna International" with tracks "Thandaza" and "Ukhunkanya" - video for this song gained vast recognition in SA. Colaboration on the track "Kevo" with Botswanas emerging star NxOmS was released on Rotation Records Africa.

If Dejan hasn’t been busy enough he has also started a brand new project with artists from Slovenian renown new jazz band "Jazoo", inspired by the work of his longtime idol Louie Vega. They named them self KROMATIK and was immediately hired to produce music for the fashion show for one of the biggest Slovenian fashion designers - Stanka Blatnik. Project included live instruments mixed with electronic beats and sounds, expressing Dejan’s passion and inner feeling for ‘Live’ music.

Radio is his next big passion, after 6 consecutive years on London’s FM radio station ‘SOUNDWAVE RADIO" with ‘AfterDark House hosted by kLEMENZ’, he followed his afro house passion and joined London´s "DRUMS RADIO" crew and started the show "Afreeka".
