Nick Klein is an electronic music artist interested in loud volume as form, as well as the sociology and ideology that is present in music subcultures. Netherlands-based Klein runs radio programs, a label, and organizes events under the title “Psychic Liberation.” He has released on the labels L.I.E.S., BANK, Unknown Precept, Viewlexx, Monorail Trespassing, and iDEAL. 

His latest release Actor-Network Theory on iDeal was recorded in 2018 and is the final record Klein made as a resident in New York, before moving to Den Haag. Taken from a caption on his Instagram, Klein describes the record as a weaving of “disparate sonic narrative[s] of dissociative opiated sleeping-bag retreats and anxiety fueled drum loops… Music for sleeping in a cold basement with a short blanket, coughing up a cigarette at Pier 94 in February, or lamenting the fickle nature of one’s own metabolism.” Actor-Network Theory can be found on iDEAL’s Bandcamp.

We also recommend that you explore all the new releases that the Satellite musicians put out during quarantine. This includes all of Bergsonist’s releases, Year 2300 from JWords, Edits Vol. 3 from Devoye, and The Blinds from Joe Jeffers.
