With over ten years' experience in the music game, including three full length albums and a slew of EPs, Sweatson Klank - formerly known as Take - is one of L.A's longest standing producers working at the periphery of hip hop and electronic music, a man who had a direct hand in shaping L.A's beat scene in the 00s through the Sketchbook night alongside Kutmah. Whether or not you've heard his music before you'll n have felt the impact of his work. After a two-year hiatus Sweatson Klank returns with the Elevate Me EP on Project Mooncircle, five tracks that further cement him as one of the nicest and most articulate producers in the game today. Elevate Me is both a departure from Sweatson's previous output and a continuation of what has made him a unique voice in L.A's thriving instrumental hip hop and electronic scene. From the opener Always You the bar is set high with music that could only come from someone with musical savoir faire born of experience and hard work. The music is intricate and playful, the rhythms are hard to resist and the melodies perfectly match the uplifting mood, qualities that are carried throughout the EP. Sweatson Klank's musical catalog includes releases for labels like All City, Eat Concrete, Circulations, Buttermilk, Poobah, Inner Current, Swedish Brandy and Astro Lab, as well as remixes and compilation tracks for the likes of Warp, Plug Research, Power Shovel Audio, Dublab, Circulations, and many others. Sweatson has been championed on various influential radio programs by the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B, Giles Peterson, Carlos Nino, and Garth Trinidad. He has performed at the some of the most highly regarded club nights and festivals around the world such as Low End Theory, Sonar Music Festival and The Loud Minority amongst others. Klank has also shared the stage with the likes of Flying Lotus, Ras G, Glitch Mob, SamIYam, Nosaj Thing, Kode 9, Busdriver, Mos Def, Prefuse 73, Mike Slott, Hudson Mohawke and more.
