You are widely known as a producer of acid house. When were you first exposed to the acid house house sound?
In high school in the 80's - we had a great record store in Bismarck, ND called budget tapes and records. they were way ahead of their time. A local friend Todd Gregor really introduced me to electronic music in about '83. I caught some late night episodes of SNUB TV and Night Flight for cutting edge music videos.
As a producer you have had releases and and remixes out on Dave Clarke's White Noise, Josh Wink's Ovum, Eric Powell's Bush, Fat Boy Slim's Skint, Novamute, Acid Tracks, Drop Bass Network and dozens of other labels. If you could list the 5 essential tunes from your hand, which ones would that be?

You currently live in Seattle, but originally you come from the Midwest. Could you tell us how you first got involved with the rave scene there and acid house in particular?
I don't remember just exactly how I started listening to Techno, but it was back in 1991, I know that. Then I started hearing about these things called Raves and got interested. By mid 1992, some friends started to bounce around the idea of starting a "Smart Bar". A portable bar set up was built out of PVC piping and plexiglass. And Cybertonix was born =o] Halloween 1992 was my first Rave, called, appropriately enough, Grave Rave. That got busted 2 hours in by the Milwaukee PD. Myself and a bunch of others spent 19 hours in a holding cell before finally being released. Normally, tha...
Founder of Hammarica 'Hammahouse' recently performed for ITV Live The DJ Sessions. ITV Live is a great EDM portal broadcasting live DJ sets straight from their mobile studio. The stream features the tag team set together with Computer Controlled. Hammahouse has its roots in the oldschool house and techno. He prefers to perform live as opposed to DJing using a plethora of synthesizers and drum machines.
Enjoy the live stream that was recorded here:

Computer Controlled has the honor of being one of this week's featured Soundcloud artists.
So who is this guy responsible for countless of wreckin acid tracks?
Computer Controlled is the main project of Seattle, WA (via the midwest) artist Larry Kleinke. He has been involved with the Rave Scene since 1991 in WI selling smart drinks with friends under the guise of Cybertonix. In 1993 he decided to start DJing and in 1995 started buying synthesizers and drum machines. Computer Controlled's base (or is that bass?) sound is heavily influenced by the old school Midwest Acid sound of DJ ESP Woody McBride and DJ Hyperactive. As well as labels like Communique', Drop Bass Network, Direct Drive, Industrial Strength, Harthouse, Contact, TRAX, etc... Also the ea...
