After having the pleasure of world premiering “Pattern Movement” featuring Geneviève Marentette from Berlin techno producer Michael Klein’s brilliant Drawing EP released last week on Pan-Pot‘s Second State label, we have a special treat for our readers. The duo — Thomas Benedix and Tassilo Ippenberger — sat down for an intimate chat with the latest edition to their label’s growing roster of talent.

In this revealing interview, Pan-Pot ask Klein about his music-making process and the array of creative activities that are on his plate.

“I always end up running multiple projects at the same time,” he confesses to the guys. “Once I have an idea in my head, I cannot stop until I release it.

Premiere: Michael Klein feat. Geneviève Marentette – “Pattern Movement”

Michael-Klein-Drawing-EP

Berlin duo Pan-Pot announced this month that their Second State label will release their new album, The Other, in September. The duo — Thomas Tassilo and Benedix Ippenberger — also use their imprint to shine the spotlight on artists they believe in, building a tidy roster of talent in the process.

Enter fellow Berliner Michael Klein to the fold. He’s a wildly inventive techno producer/DJ/live performer/product designer at Native Instruments and formerly half of DJ duo Klein & Meister. His artistry and technical prowess goes deep into the cosmos on his standout three-track Drawing EP.

We’re extremely pleased to world premiere the pulsating closing cut “Pattern Movement” featuring Geneviève Marentette from his new EP, a dark, hypnotic and thoroughly pulsating romp. As the vocal sample on the track urges, get it!

Michael Klein’s Drawing EP is released July 31, 2015 on Pan-Pot’s Second State imprint.
