Now that DJ/producer, Bass Kleph, has settled down here in Los Angeles, he’s decided to get back to a passion of his that started back in Australia years ago — sharing music with friends and fans via radio/podcast. Starting this month, he’ll be putting together a monthly podcast titled, KLEPHTOMANIA, which will consist of live recordings, top tunes, and even submissions from fans. The kickoff is a goodie, featuring a whole lot of Electro House including Kleph’s latest single, “Make Me Forget,” our buddy TJR’s “Ode to Oi,” as well as the notorious live recording of Quintino & Sandro Silva’s “Epic” performed at The Yost in Orange County.

Have you noticed … the Australians? They’re everywhere in LA now – playing our music, drinking our beer, and loving our sunshine and palm trees. Or so recent import Bass Kleph says. One of the most established Aussie DJs on the US scene, he recently moved to LA in early 2012. Like his fellow Aussies Hook N Sling and his old flatmate Tommy Trash, Bass Kleph has taken the Aussie irreverence and humility and turned it into something the American scene has always had loved – pure, heads down fun, serious technical skill, and music that doesn’t always take itself too seriously.

Called Make Me Forget, it’s a very personal statement: the first time he’s sung on his own tracks, and a unusually melancholy lyric for a man who’s usually a very sunny guy.
“Make Me Forget was about missing my ex,” he says. Continue Reading

Have a listen to the preview here first, and pick up the original along with a Bass Kleph re-edit and remixes from EC Twins and Chardy on Beatport.
