Kevin Christen and Benno Leuenberger are taking the electronic music world by storm with their remarkable back-to-back project Double Impact. The Swiss production and DJ duo enjoyed years of success working individually under the monikers Precious Kay and Sin Gin Smythe respectively, but their destinies intertwined and set the spark to form Double Impact. It was a 2-day intensive DJ workshop at the Ministry of Sound Academy in 2013 that led to their coincidental meeting, and upon the renowned DJ Tutor Ellaskins’ and Jamie Lewis’s encouragement the two joined their musical vision into what has now become a solid 2-year collaboration. Inspired by other back-to-back acts such as: Dusky, Daft Punk, Disclosure, Knife Party, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nervo, and Art Department amongst other, Double Impact are in the business to offer a diverse and original alternative to the lone soldier behind the decks.
Their 28-year age gap is an unprecedented strong point for the duo, bringing together the vast experience and deep understanding of timeless musical movements of Benno together with the hunger and modern outlook on music of Kevin. Their productions are predominantly House orientated, drawing their inspirations mainly from Deep and Tech House, however they uniquely blend in some Electro, Progressive and EDM elements that help shape their signature sound. Double Impact’s creative thinking and processing is as original as the tracks themselves. According to their musical creed, their music has to be memorable, instinctive, revolutionary, and inspired from their inner state, whilst always keeping true to their roots and most importantly project enjoyment onto whoever is listening.
The same concepts are also pursued when performing their live sets. Their sets are usually unplanned and directed by their creative intuition and the connecting bond which they have developed during the last years. Their customised, repartee style sets are aimed at feeding off both each other’s personal mood and also the crowd’s vibe, making this tandem a true euphoria generating machine. Their exciting live show performances have landed them gigs at some of Switzerland’s top events, clubs and festivals such as: Kaufleuten, Club Diagonal, Indochine, Club Q, Queens, X-Tra, Frieda’s Büxe, Garden Club, Frauenfeld Festival, and Wake the Lake Festival amongst numerous others. Double Impact’s elaborate live DJ sets have also caught the attention of legendary, international superstars such as: Calvin Harris, DJ Task Horizon, DJ Tatana, Adrian Bujupi, and Sean Kingston, all of whom they had the pleasure to share the stage with.
Benno and Kevin have formed a truly fascinating project which has been making waves in their native country for the past 3 years. Their profound musical knowledge, tireless work ethic, and constant search for innovative sounds and ideas will surely propagate Double Impact to a wider international audience. Through their quality, inimitable productions this thrilling back-to-back duo is definitely on track to reserve their place at the very top of House music charts.
