Klax emerged from the thriving Brighton drum and bass scene in 2014. The trio quickly gained prominence with a debut DnB release on Renegade Hardware called ‘Vendetta’. This forward thinking track caught the ears of several taste-makers in the scene, including Foreign Concept who enlisted them for a collab on his next EP on Critical. The fruit of this joint effort, ‘Ask Yourself’, quickly garnered huge support and was much applauded for it’s musicality and boundary pushing sentiment. Following this, the trio delivered a three tracker for Critical’s digital offshoot Binary, the lead track of which shot to the top 3 in Beatports DnB charts.

Spurred on by this success Klax got in the studio and turned out another EP, this time for Critical:Systems; earning a vinyl release and gaining support from the furthest reaches of the DnB world including early support from Sub Focus and Friction and love from Noisia, Ivy lab, Icicle, Enei, Toddla T, Hype and loads more. Klax are currently locked away in the studio, crafting their next set of game changers so be ready!
