Mixmag Exclusive Interview with Ben Klock
Our media partners Mixmag have pulled together this in-depth interview with Dimensions headliner Ben Klock, to chat about the life and times of the underground techno don, and speaks to him about a time when “cocky cocaine” Electroclash was making Berlin a tricky place to enjoy good techno.
Soundwall.it interview with Kyle Hall“He has always been fascinated with music, his parents were his first motivators, record stores his second home, high school an ideal place to practice his art-form. So Kyle Hall has forged ahead; at fifteen years old he released his first ep “Plastik Ambash” on FXHE, Omar S label. Don’t say he needs to grow. In fact, despite his young age he has already taught to young aspiring talents and run up his own label Wild Oats, working with friends and big names of the Detroit electronic scene and producing something new, not necessarily categorized in a specific genre.”
