They always said school would be the beginning of your life, to pay attention and gain those skills before you slip under the system just passing to graduate and we all listened sarcastically.
Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch, the duo famously known as Milky Chance, scoped each other out in their earliest of years of school and immediately clicked. Together they graduated secondary school at Jacob-Grimm-Schule and played in a band until the drummer quit, leaving the two with just each other. The boys built a tiny studio in Clemens’ parents house and got to work on their debut album. Within two weeks, they self-produced their album Sadnecessary, which was released in 2013. Two songs from this album, “Stolen Dance” and “Down by the River,” hit the charts in Germany and eastern Europe, with “Stolen Dance” becoming a number one hit for them.
