He’s one of the most prominent names on the Chilean electronic music scene but, for the release of his debut EP, 199x, Daniel Klauser chose to be called "1991." The young DJ and producer, also the founder of Diamante Records, released this work earlier this month and the EP’s 8 tracks are perfectly located in that dreamy place between electronic music and hip hop. 199x is freely downloadable through Dilema Industria, the label that produced it.

Dilema Industria explains that Klauser uses 1991 as an alter ego that allows him to return to the roots of sampling and electronic music. The making of 199x is said to have been strongly influenced by the Santiago-based DJ’s recent travels around countries such as Switzerland, Germany and Colombia.

Klauser’s other works are more heavily influenced by techno and house. You can listen to them on his Soundcloud.
