Thomas Klein is the drummer for the renowned Dusseldorf band Kreidler. His solo project goes under the name Sølyst and has found him releasing three records to date on German label Bureau B. Using contact mic'd surfaces to produce live rhythms, Solyst creates highly atmospheric kinetic electronica. For this project Thomas is joined by Trestle's Ross Downes on a collaboration that was achieved via file sharing over the internet. The London/Dusseldorf duo bring styles recognisable on their respective records, mixing Sølyst's unique percussive sound with Downes's effected guitar and sequenced synths.
