"Major New Musical Talent Emerges, Challenges Musical Boundaries"

July 1, 2008
New York-
Once in a great while a truly ground breaking new artist appears on the music scene.  Artists such as; Elvis Presley, Led Zepplin, the Clash, and Bob Marley all emerged from the ranks of their contemporaries to cross the boundaries of musical genres, blend musical types, forge new fan interest and expand the growth of the music recording industry.
SK KliK is now balanced on the edge of a new musical frontier.  Headed by (b), much the same way Trent Reznor fronts Nine Inch Nails; (b) is the musical instigator, architect and brains behind the music.  What is unusual about SK KliK is the listener's inability to exactly categorize where the music fits; while being able to wholeheartedly relate to the lyrics.
Perhaps best described as a unique blend of techno, hip-hop, and ocassional rock, (b) and the KliK pump out an infectious beat, that in some songs, for example – "Walk Alone" share a distinct kinship with (dare I say it), new age music.
However, the KliK is not for the faint at heart, and cannot be accused of approaching music in a laid back manner.  Fortified with biting lyrics, contempt for shiftless acquaintances and laced with plenty of expletives, the KliK attack such diverse subjects as failed love, botched relationships, unfulfilled dreams, and nay-sayers.
So what is different about SK KliK? What other rappers employ such clear, concise and clever lyrics? Even when rapping, (b)'s mastery of wordplay goes way beyond the practice of east coast hip-hop lyrical sharpness and even manages to rhyme in the process. He is also unique in his element of addressing subjects relevant in suburban societies instead of trying to relate to the urban lifestyle like most hip-hop artists.
The prediction: look for SK KliK to lay the ground work for a new genre of music dubbed “Tech-Hop” or “Heavy Tech-Hop” and to become one of the most recognized names in the music recording industry.



From the Ashes (July, 2008)



(b) the self proclaimed Leader of SK KliK was raised in Pickerington, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. In a city known for its picture perfect families and preppy residents, (b) set out early on to differentiate himself from being just another sheep following the herd. With several real life set backs (b) channeled his pain, anger, and frustrations into writing.

During Jr. High School, (b) became fascinated with the hip-hop community. After joining and starting numerous rock and metal bands through out the years
(b) realized that the urban music he was listening to did not truly speak or relate to the experiences of suburban youth; paired with the frustrations of seeing bands like Limp Bizkit and other “rap-metal” bands destroy their artistic integrity, (b) ventured out to create original, uncompromising music on his own terms.

In April of 2002, (b) was in a horrific car accident, and officially “passed away twice”, once in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, and once in the operating room. (b) is convinced he was resurrected back from the dead to make an impact on the world with his music.

After renting a storage unit, in a less than reputable area of town, (b) has invested almost all of his energy and money into recreating the feeling he first felt when he started writing lyrics in the mid 90’s. This time around (b) has devoted the time to teach himself the basics on all the instruments he would need to fulfill his musical visions, including playing guitar, bass, and drums; In addition, (b) has become accomplished in the entire recording, mixing, and production aspects of music, being able to avoid undue interference from other musicians or self-indulgent producers.

SK KliK successfully blends a unique combination of electronic drum & bass beats, with hard house synths, occasional hard rock guitars and rock song formatting, all infused with his suburban hip-hop influenced vocals, (b) is poised to take his position as not only leader of the KliK, but the leader of the next generation of artists.

From the Ashes (SK KliKs first CD) is an appropriate titled CD from (b)s near death experience and kicking out all the previous band members he had worked with, to start from nothing.
