Austin’s self-proclaimed hip-hop heads are most likely familiar with Eric Mikulak in one capacity or another – Mikulak first came on the live scene years ago as the fierce frontman for local RHCP/RATM inspired five-piece Karmatron. When Karmatron began to slowly disband, Mikulak applied his extensive technical and musical knowledge to kickstart his solo career as Click-Clack. Equipped with a home studio and a prowess for production, Mikulak has written and recorded at least 100 songs by himself, including the three Housework full-lengths. That isn’t to say that Mikulak is hesitant about collaboration – quite the opposite actually. Though he is a self-sustaining musician, the guy can recognize talent when he hears it, and in 2015 he released Untitled, an album full of collaborating producers Mikulak hand-picked through either his personal network, or discovery through SoundCloud.
Nowadays if you get an opportunity to see Click-Clack live, do it! Mikulak has become somewhat of a hermit through his constant production workflow not only for Click-Clack but through other production aliases such as White Jamal. While fans are anticipating the release of Housework 4 somewhere in the near future, Click-Clack has graced listeners with the premiere of this old-school bass bumper: a track produced by Norway’s Freshtone and mastered by Illinois’ Haakon entitled, “Point”.
