Techno mastermind Ben Klock marks the 20th release on his Klockworks imprint with a compilation that represents the labels past and future, including a new track by Klock himself fittingly titled 'Twenty'.
The new track possesses brilliantly produced hypnotic simplicity, an aspect that Klock has embraced throughout his career. With regards to the vision behind the techno ballad, Klock elaborates on the approach he used during the production process and how that also lends itself to the title.
"The track title 'Twenty' does not only refer to the catalogue number of the compilation but also to the fact that the main bleep and bass element of the track comes from a Korg MS-20. It was one of the first times for me wiggling around with this beast of a synth. It's a simple club track and it's groove all comes together when the additional bass sequence comes in at the second half of the track."
Also found on the 'Klockworks 20' compilation are tracks by DVS1, Trevino, Sterac, Dax J, Etapp Kyle and much more. 'Klockworks 20' is set for release September 25. Purchase from the Klockworks website at a discounted price here.
