The Martyn-approved and rare groove moved Kloke with his take on bleepy bass and clunky techno – or their marriage. Live at The Bunker NYC.

We all know what Robert Frost said about roads less traveled – hard to say what the poet would make of the bleep-techno-meets-bass that Melbourne-based Kloke creates, but we do know what Dutch heavyweight DJ and producer Martyn made of it when he included it in his DJ sets. Like Martyn, Kloke grew up on drum‘n’bass, became disenchanted after a bit, and is now producing whatever we’re calling the UK bass/techno hybrid this week. That it’s so moving may be owed to all the funk and soul 45s in Kloke’s record collection, but we wouldn’t want to speculate. Frost probably said something about that too.
