PHORK (a.k.a. P.H.O.R.K., standing for “People’s Higher Order of Royal Kinship”) is the Los Angeles-based producer of mutant techno Neal Reinalda. Since 2012 Reinalda has dropped several album-length cassette releases, showcasing a hi-def, abstract form of footwork, heavy on vocal snippets. PHORK succeeds in injecting a warmth and humanity into dance music that is wholly original, keeping a global influence in its sampling studies, while receiving guidance from the worlds of noise, hip-hop, ambient, and sound art.
