A techno maker who thrives most when working with stripped-down songs shaded with darker hues, Berlin’s Ben Klock debuted in 1998 as Ben E. Time clock having a 12″ by himself short-lived Clockworks label. His moderate beginning continued having a 2000 12″ on WMF, however in 2003 he released a set of singles — “Shine” and “Label der Arbeit” — on Ellen Allien’s BPitch Control. That allegiance considerably increased his publicity. After a couple of produces on BPitch sublabel Memo, Klock and Marcel Dettmann collaborated around the 2006 maiden launch for Ostgut, the label branch of Berlin’s Berghain nightclub. Successive Ostgut singles, specifically Feb 2007’s “Czeslawa”/”Warszawa,” ramped in the expectation for the very first Klock full-length. One, the 3rd production record released on Ostgut (pursuing nearly universally praised produces from Shed and Prosumer + Murat Tepeli), was released in March 2009.
