INFO: Along with Marcel Dettmann, Len Faki and Andre Galluzzi, Klock is resident DJ at Berghain, the legendary Berlin club that houses Panoramabar and is the very nucleus of the city's thriving party scene. As both DJs and producers, Klock and his cohorts have developed a tough, streamlined big-room sound which recalls the 90s work of Jeff Mills and Basic Channels but invested with a certain lithe, skippy quality learned from modern-day minimal and dubstep. Having co-created the prescientBlank Scenario mini-LP with Marcel Dettmann, Klock has released several dancefloor-oriented EPs under the banner of Klockworks; last week saw the release of his debut solo album, One, an incredibly moody and stirring record that featuring the vocals of Elif Bicer and the first Ostgut Ton release since Shed's Shedding The Past.
