Klaus Benedek returns in style with the “Consequences” EP on forTunea, another grand foray showcasing the Austrian producer’s versatility and diversity. The title track is an energetic tech house adventure and stellar addition to any peak-time set. “Hibernation” and “The Rays of Your Arms Pierce the Mist” experiment with siren song vocals in sonic atmospheres reigning both dark and cozy. And yet the main show stealer on this release is the emotional “The One” on the a-side, whose iconic melody leads to a boisterous climax, rendering listeners speechless.
Inspired by ‘90s techno and a longtime vinyl collector, the multidisciplinary Klaus Benedek weaves a patchwork of genre influences—Chicago house, deep house, disco and breakbeat—into a unified oeuvre both timely and consequential.
