As founder of www.hammarica.com he has interviewed all the greats from the world of techno, including Detroit originator Juan Atkins, early house adopters Fierce Ruling Diva and founder of legendary label R&S records Renaat Vandepapeliere among many others. He joined Kleinke in AREA 303 to form a live act with the music he loves most!
All artwork for the label is done by Larry Kleinke. Besides music, Kleinke has a strong interest in photography. His pictures are often dark and gritty and form the perfect addition to the feel of the Area 303 label. Rusty trains, dark gear, a night shot of the city and more grace the covers of the label.
