Computer Controlled has the honor of being one of this week’s featured Soundcloud artists.
So who is this guy responsible for countless of wreckin acid tracks?
Computer Controlled is the main project of Seattle, WA (via the midwest) artist Larry Kleinke. He has been involved with the Rave Scene since 1991 in WI selling smart drinks with friends under the guise of Cybertonix. In 1993 he decided to start DJing and in 1995 started buying synthesizers and drum machines. Computer Controlled’s base (or is that bass?) sound is heavily influenced by the old school Midwest Acid sound of DJ ESP Woody McBride and DJ Hyperactive. As well as labels like Communique’, Drop Bass Network, Direct Drive, Industrial Strength, Harthouse, Contact, TRAX, etc… Also the early Minimal stylings of dbx, Todd Sines and Hyperactive.
