OUTPOST | Klockworks presents Photon New York: Ben Klock/ Marcel Dettmann/ Dax J/ Etapp Kyle at Avant Gardner

Ben Klock born in 1972 in the west of Berlin was during the mid-nineties a resident of Cookies in berlin. At the beginning of the 00’s he almost retired from djing because he lost the fun during the Minimal/Micro House wave. In 2005 he was asked to become a Resident for Berghain. Playing there inspired him and revitalized his passion for Techno because of the total freedom what to play there and the extended play time. His style of DJ-ing can be described as Hard but always with a Heart.
Runs the label Klockworks.

Marcel Dettmann

Born on the 26th of October 1977 in Pössneck (Thüringen), DJ since 1994, he is resident of the Berlin club Berghain and runs the label Marcel Dettmann Records.

Techno DJ and producer from London, UK, based in Berlin. Founder of Monnom Black.

It took DJ and producer Etapp Kyle just a short time to make a giant leap from a stay-at-home audiophile to a status as hero on the decks. By now it's clear he made the right moves – this young Ukraine-born and Berlin-based artist is developing rapidly.

Today Etapp Kyle is on the threshold of a new level of creativity, alongside Techno music's key artists. His studio work is being met with critical acclaim by respected artists and labels. He is releasing music on Ben Klock's Klockworks label as well as channeling his music through sound systems of festivals and clubs worldwide. Having enlisted the support and interest of Russia's Techno institution ARMA17, he made his first appearance in Moscow a couple of years ago and held a residency there until 2014. These days he is travelling across the world, holds a residency at Berghain and has released on the club’s in-house label Unterton as well as contributing to Ostgut Ton’s ten-year anniversary compilation.

With the most sophisticated combinations of Techno sounds of the dance floor, Etapp Kyle invites us to explore the depths of a piercing cold canyon, now and then carrying fleetingly to a textural and hardly tangible landscape of a forest at night, with softness and smooth motion of warm air. His love for dark and dynamic sounds finds its expression in the mixing with soft melodies and powerful grooves creating transparent, disembodied imprints of an illusory atmosphere.

$30.00 - $60.00


OUTPOST presents the North American debut of PHOTON, Ben Klock’s boundary-pushing event series Saturday April 28 in the Great Hall at Avant Gardner Brooklyn. The Klockworks label boss will deliver his incendiary blend of heart-pounding and emotive techno alongside fellow Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann, prolific producer Dax J and Ukrainian virtuoso Etapp Kyle. Influenced by the notion of a photon, the spectacular PHOTON series combines unique sound, light and architecture to present a multi-sensory experience in a meticulously-curated space. Located in the heart of Brooklyn’s industrial center, the cavernous 15,000 square foot Great Hall within the Avant Gardner event complex, also home to the beloved Brooklyn Mirage, is the perfect location to introduce the mesmeric interplay of PHOTON light and sound to the North American audience.
