DECKast #66 x Michael Claus

Bay-area producer & Outpost resident Michael Claus is to release his debut album, Memory Protect, on 100% Silk next week. With releases and collabs on Jacktone Records, Outpost, and Charmin Records under his own name only in recent years, Claus has been actively making music since 2004. On this new album, Claus secures emotionally charged house and techno variations spanning between 2014-2017, telling his musical journey in an 8 track narrative of loose sedative rhythms and scenic synth euphoria. It's like "Bodies of water, oceans of memory – what collects, continues" - 100% Silk. Listen to two singles off the release below...

Memory Protect is available on cassette and digital September 22 via 100% Silk bandcamp. Also on September 23 at the Elbo Room in San Francisco Outpost will be hosting a 100% Silk takeover featuring Auscultation (LIVE), Maria Minerva (LIVE) and of course Outpost residents Michael Claus and CM-4. They will be celebrating the new tape in full force - not to be missed if your in the area - find all the info via Resident Advisor.

In light of the upcoming release, Michael generously contributed a short & sweet mix for our DECKast series. Showcasing an unreleased track of his own, alongside a track from late Outpost founder & close collaborator, Nackt; the tranquil array of tracks hit a calm reflective state in the mind. Purely transcending beginning to end. Listen below and read what he had to say about the mix...
