Phil Klein

Although U.K.-structured producer Phil Klein maintains a profile only this side of utter obscurity, his releases through Panic Trax, the Miami-based Dynamix label, and his personal Parallax and Battle Trax imprints have attained him a reputation as you of all interesting and interesting from the new-school dancefloor electro crop. With origins in both Western techno and hardcore and American electro-funk and bass music, Klein offers bridged spaces between white, middle-class techno as well as the marginal fringes of America’s innercity African-American and Latino golf club moments. Although he released a small number of hardcore techno and breakbeat monitors as Fight Systems, his initial 12-inch seeing that Cybernet Systems, The Borg EP (for Cleverness sublabel Anxiety Trax) featured a forward-looking electro revise, merging thunderous mid-tempo breaks with traveling bass and tight electronic syncopation that suggested the task of early innovators such as for example Egyptian Lover and Hashim even though remaining aloof from the vintage instinct. (Klein was also aided using one monitor by old-school electro star Dynamix II.) Klein in addition has released two EPs under his Bass Junkie task heading, focusing mainly on Miami-style bass — and with an increased vintage/kitsch quotient than his Cybernet or Fight Systems materials — but once again with a far more experimental, funk-fueled advantage employing active drum patterns that pull normally from Kraftwerk’s “Quantities” as from Maggotron’s “Go back to the earth of Bass.”
