Ben Klock - One
Release:23.02.09 (physical) 09.03.09 (digital)
One is the debut of Ben Klock. Known for his numerous EP releases on Ostgut, Bpitch Control, Memo and his own platform Klockworks.
In my opinion it’s often very disillusioning, when someone who is known for producing good EP’s and 12” for the dance floor releases his first complete album. A lot of them sound like a string together of tracks. Ben Clock did this high-wire act in a nonesuch way. He produced great tracks that will still function in a challenging DJ set, but he also produced a deep album with atmosphere. The mesmerising opener “Coney Island” leaves no questions; here’s happening something special. Music with a special atmosphere and soul, dispersing a very special mood somewhere between night and day.
Ben used sounds me of the beginning of the Bristol area, the glory times when experimental sounds where used in tracks which were made to conquer the world. Ben now puts this approach on the next stage; he produced dark techno tracks with a distinctive experimental sound. The result is that you will get addicted to the special atmosphere of this album – a sound that reminds you of a rainy day and the warmth of the sun at once – nonesuch. The next chapter of creating intelligent dance music. Elif Bicer who did the vocals on two tracks crowns this album to a very perfect perfect ten.
A wonderful perfect ten album – believe me…
