Their unique style has seen them put out remixes on DFA Records, Young Turks/XL Recordings, Mad Decent (Hold The Line Cumbia style anyone?) and included on Modeselektor’s ‘Modeselektion Vol 2’. They have played sessions on KEXP, Boiler Room and NPR and their debut album caught the attention of XLR8R and more.

They needed a musical outlet that enabled them to showcase more subtle and textured sounds for the dancefloor. With rich layers of electronic synthesizers and groove boxes Klik & Frik was born. Their hypnotic, ritualistic and meditative blends are a unique and transformative approach to the ancestral influences of South America.
