NYC-based EDM Artist/Producer Modular Punk To Release Minimal Electronic Interpretation of Richard Wagner’s Opera “Der Ring Des Nibelungen” (The Ring Of The Nibelung)

Share Article

Almost two years after topping Billboard Magazine's "Uncharted" (June 4, 2011), Brooklyn, New York-based Minimal Tech House DJ/Producer Modular Punk, known for his dark and cinematic neo-trance compositions and signature rolling sub-bass, has posted news of an upcoming release scheduled for November 20, 2012. The release, entitled "Ring Of Nibelung", can without a doubt be interpreted as a modern electronic rendition of famed German composer Richard Wagner's four-part opera "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (The Ring of the Nibelung).

Having received praise from well established artists such as techno legend Richie Hawtin, Ellen Allien, Eric Prydz and Axwell, as well as journalists from the some of most prominent music media publications of this decade, Modular Punk has pushed his dark and super-sub bass injected indie beats to dance floors across the globe. DJing in over 20 different countries in 2010 alone, you would be hard pressed to find a more promising individual, regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans.

Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can, Modular Punk’s live performance is a veritable testament to his fervent passion for musical bliss.Literally pushing himself to a point of absolute physical exhaustion and resultant hospitalization after performing live, Modular Punk has redefined the expectations of a DJ / Producer, driving fans absolutely crazy with his aggressive proclivity for dancing and clapping his hands in between every tweak of a pan-pot, drop of a bass-line, and drag of a cigarette.

Modular Punk’s explosive sound has become too strong for one simple generic association, and right now his message is louder than ever. Only 27 years old and technically still an industry rookie amongst his peers, Modular Punk is not just at the top of his game, he is pushing the boundaries of what a DJ/Producer can do – both technically and creatively – as an artist and as a successful label businessman.

From roughly late 2009 to mid 2011, Modular Punk's bass-heavy dance compositions dominated much of the European underground club scene, receiving attention that spanned from Detroit techno legend Richie Hawtin, to prominent music journalists such as Billboard Magazine's Jon Blistein.

According to Avery Klein, managing director of NYC-based indie electronic dance label Perfection Recordings, Inc. the official track-listing for Modular Punk's "Ring Of Nibelung" is as follows:
