Few authentic Electro producers from the UK can wear the badge ‘legend’ with the same level of justification as Phil Klein aka Bass Junkie. Active since the late 80s, Phil has been peddling his own take on Electro almost constantly, either as a solo artist or as part of numerous collabs with the likes of Dynamix II, Keith Tenniswood (Radioactiveman) and Si Brown (Dexorcist). DJ, remixer, live act, and the man behind the killer Battle Trax label, there is nothing this Junkie hasn’t done.
With essential releases on labels such DMX Krew’s Breakin’ Records, Andrea Parker’s Touchin’ Bass, and Billy Nasty’s Elektrix; the Bass Junkie sound spans the old school beats and vibes of the Electro genre’s origins, to the borderline industrial. From funky to ferocious, Bass Junkie’s discography is a must have for anyone claiming passion for the genre – influential, individual, and infectious with every beat.
His ‘Low Frequency Fugitive’ EP is a welcome return for his Bass Junkie project, after several years working primarily on collabs. The EP brings four new tracks that maintain the Bass Junkie sound that brought him such success and notoriety in the first place, with a healthy dose of evolution too.
This is one Fugitive everyone should try and track down….

It's proto-electro! In 1997 - after a decade or more of searching I found (with a lot of assistance): "Sex With The Machines". I actually bought it the day it was released in my country. This? It is as good. 3l3ctro C0mmand0! resurface
