Frankfurt native Michael Koczynski (a.k.a Michael Klein) has a new EP out today via Second State. Named Metals, the record marks the artist’s second effort landing on the German imprint, originally founded by Berlin techno veterans Pan-Pot. Succeeding last year’s Drawing EP, Klein’s latest four-tracker sees the producer return to his characteristic dark sound, paired up with groovy basslines, while still delivering a more evolved and innovative sound. As stated by the label, it lies “somewhere between the traditional fundamentals and the future stylings of the most distinguished techno.”

Metals is available now on vinyl via and A digital version is expected to land in the near future.
