After nearly a decade of building his sonic practice between numerous releases on labels such as L.I.E.S., Viewlexx, Alter, and iDEAL, and curating his own eclectic imprint Psychic Liberation, Nick Klein delivers a long-form masterwork via 𝑺𝒍𝒊𝒑𝒑𝒊𝒏 𝑶𝒖𝒕. Some previously-released tracks hinted at Klein's interest in the durational aspects of performance and listening, but after nearly three years of recording, 𝑺𝒍𝒊𝒑𝒑𝒊𝒏 𝑶𝒖𝒕 fully conceptualizes those proclivities.

Traversing diverse timbres and structures over 90 minutes across four tracks, Klein draws upon his cross-disciplinary experience in the totemic physicality of sculpture and installation. Beginning with intense waves of modulating oscillators, creating a vista of ghostly interferences and superpositions, Klein seamlessly transitions to a looping vocal, ascending the listener to higher planes - pure mana for the ears. Side B opens with a more muted excursion, excavating somber glassy canyons before ending with concrete-esque tape manipulations, and finally, several minutes of silence.

Klein also delves deeply into the personal, dedicating the album to "all the friends lost caught up slippin out." A direct line is drawn between the despair of late-stage capitalism and the allure of "slippin out", especially for those most susceptible. As loss impacts his patchwork of networks and community, Klein reflects on who is left to share with. 𝑺𝒍𝒊𝒑𝒑𝒊𝒏 𝑶𝒖𝒕 is the documentation of that study.
