Ofenbach are very much a part of the global dance cross over, with a sound that takes additional influence from rock, pop and folk. After more than 6 years together and a constant string of outstanding releases, they have reached a new level in their career. In just a few years, Ofenbach have reached 2 Billion career streams to date, 9 Million Monthly listeners on Spotify and 460 Million views on YouTube.
The duo had a strong impact from the start, notably around one of their biggest streaming tracks, 2016’s “Be Mine”, which topped the world charts (Top 10 European Airplay). In 2017 they went on to work with songwriter Nick Waterhouse for the exquisitely retro “KATCHI”, ranked 6th in Europe for airplay and the world’s most Shazamed dance track for three months. They soon followed with their self-titled EP including their original hits alongside collaborations with Portugal The Man and The Bamboos. Their momentum did not stop there- further records were broken with the release of “Head Shoulders Knees & Toes” (Top 50 Spotify Global , Top 10 European Airplay), ‘Wasted Love’ (Top 100 Spotify Global, Top 10 European Airplay), and “Hurricane”, a belter of a collaboration with English pop superstar Ella Henderson (Top 15 European airplay).
For the French duo, their elevation onto the international world stage comes with increased importance. Not only for them, but for their peers, their country and the electro sounds they grew up on. Despite further success in Germany, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Russia, Serbia and a recent remix for superstars Coldplay and Selena Gomez (“Let Somebody Go”), César and Dorian still have their feet firmly on the ground. The first is a classically-trained pianist and drummer in his spare time, and the second is a singer and guitarist. They are both from Paris, live just 100 meters apart, and have known each other since their earliest childhood years. “The fact we’re able to do this together is the most amazing thing,” says César. Dorian adds: “We share everything in our lives, and it’s a great experience to be with someone who understands you. Most DJs don’t have that.”
