Milky Chance is a German alternative pop folk rock duo with reggae and electronic music influences made up of Clemens Rehbein as vocalist and musician and Philipp Dausch as DJ. Both originating from Kassel, they are signed to Kassel-based label Lichtdicht Records. The duo finished their high school education at Jacob-Grimm-Schule. Clemens played in a jazz quartet known as Flown Tones where he played bass guitar. Philipp was a DJ. The duo worked in 2012 launching some materials online particularly "Stolen Dance" that attracted attention. In 2013, they released their self-produced album Sadnecessary that was well received, that included the tracks "Stolen Dance" and "Down by the River". Both the album and the debut single "Stolen Dance" have charted in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In May 2013, Milky Chance made a sold-out tour of Germany to promote the album and took part in a number of music festivals including Dockville Festival in Hamburg. They will embark on a European tour in 2014.
