Matej Končan (alias Kleemar) is an electronic composer and musician oriented towards analogue electronic sounds. Kleemar's music, commonly described as IDM or intelligent dance music, profoundly reaches beyond firm genre categorisation and varies between melodic post-rock and electronical dance sound expressions, usually produced with his old Fender Rhodes keyboard. Watching Kleemar's live act with his band (Sašo Benko and Ivor Knafelj, also members of Psycho-Path, Manul, Stekli psi, Werefox, Plueg) is a special experience, since all three members play and exchange their instruments, such as different old-school keyboards, synthesisers, bass and electric guitars. Kleemar's music is always live and therefore open for new and fresh experimentations.
