A collaboration between ambient maestro Thomas Köner and beatmeister Andy Mellwig, the duo debuted with three 12-inches on the Berlin based basic channel sub-label Chain Reaction during 1995-96. Filtering out any of the harder effects from Detroit techno and Plastikman material with what sounded like an affinity for undersea SONAR frequencies and wind-tunnel ambience, the singles became quite popular with the growing experimental techno scene of the mid-’90s (and even influenced Plastikman in return).
By the time of the 1996 CD collection BioKinetics on Chain Reaction, Porter Ricks had moved on to Force Inc with the double-pack Redundance EP, plus the singles “Spoil” and “Exposed.” The duo also recorded a single for Barooni before collecting their Force Inc material onto a self-titled 1997 CD. Two years later, the Techno Animal collaboration Symbiotics appeared. Köner also has a long-running solo career, with a half-dozen albums recorded for Barooni.
