Bass Kleph (AKA Stu Tyson) is an artist you’re gonna start hearing a lot more about. The Sydney, Australia native has been taking the industry by storm with his Beatport #1 and mid-year chart topping remix of Joan Reyes’s “Shakedown; the club and radio pop smash $pend My Money (feat Stellar MC); a top 20 Beatport main-chart hit with “Keyboard Cat” remixes of acts like Green Velvet and Sarah McLeod and the continued success of his own label – Vacation Records (and new sister label Exit Row) – and its crew of producers like Wolfgang Gartner, Micky Slim, Mowgli. The label’s fans stretch from the stadium players like John Aquaviva, Crookers, Rene Amesz, Mark Knight, and Kissy Sell Out to the brightest lights of the techno underground like Alex Kenji, Popof, and Fergie.
As you can see, 2010’s been an extremely busy and successful year for Bass Kleph.  Coming off a tour (with Afrojack) in support of his new Ministry of Sound Australia’s Guide To The Underground compilation and earlier gigs in venues from Fabric UK to Tunning Hall Moscow and Baby Face China, Bass Kleph is now preparing for his first jaunt across North America with stops through Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, El Paso, Miami and St. John’s, Newfoundland. 
Bass Kleph’s been practicing his craft forever. Most kids are still in school at age 15, but as a teenager Bass Kleph was touring Australia and New Zealand as the drummer of a hugely successful three-piece rock act, Loki. Playing live in grubby rock venues gave him his earliest understandings that there’s a dynamic to making crowds dance. A catchy rhythm won’t catch without the hypnotism of an irresistible hook – but then even the most nagging hook won’t shuffle the feet until it’s bent out of shape by the thunder of a serious rhythm section. Loki imploded eventually, the inevitable result of the music industry trying to screw all it could out of the band’s three teenage members. Bass Kleph left, determined that he wouldn’t taken in by the empty promises of the industry again – but also that next time round he wanted to do it differently. A more electronic sound, focused on his new obsession, DJing.
That was 15 years ago. Bass Kleph’s been DJIng just about weekly now for 10 years – and the DJ booth is still one of his favorite places to be. He started in breaks, but soon pushed aside that genre’s limitations to add new, more subtle shades to his dancefloor palette – hypnotic techy grooves, jackin’ electro, and the curveballs that distinguish a real musician from the average gigging DJ. He’s also big on making his own mashups for the purpose of unleashing on unsuspecting crows. As such, we convinced Bass Kleph to allow us to share some of his weapons with you. The first bootleg combines Deformation “Weakness” + Bloody Beetroots & Steve Aoki “Warp” for a new track called “Weakness For Warp.” This track has never before been released and it’s now free for spreading like a thick coat of bass.
