Jack Dangers is the composer and sound sculptor behind Meat Beat Manifesto. His constantly evolving musical invention has generated a long string of futuristic classics, like “Psyche Out,” “Helter Skelter,” “Radio Babylon,” “Edge of No Control” and “It’s The Music.” The single, “Prime Audio Soup,” from the Meat Beat Manifesto album Actual Sounds and Voices, was featured in the sci-fi fantasy blockbuster, The Matrix and on its platinum-selling soundtrack.

An acknowledged innovator in the electronic music scene, Jack Dangers continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new generations of sound activists. As a premier remixer, producer, and sound designer, he has played a seminal role in defining tomorrows’ music today. Past production/remixing projects include Public Enemy, Scorn, David Bowie, Orbital, NIN, EBN, David Byrne, Merzbow, Depeche Mode, Terry Riley, Tower of Power and Coil. He has also made videos for Clive Barker, Tox Simian, and DJ Shadow.

Meat Beat Manifesto released their 2018 record, “Impossible Star” on January 19 via Flexidisc with distribution by Virtual Label. It is available on CD, digital, and vinyl. Drawing on the paranoid and surreal political and cultural climate, Jack Dangers likens the record “to an MC Escher optical illusion which spirals around and around and never seems to end.”

“Intriguing and intimidating, Dangers’ cultural osterizing evolves to the nth degree of studio sophistication…”
–ROLLING STONE

“Without MBM’s groundbreaking amalgams of hip-hop and industrial dance music, modern dance music genres such as Big Beat and Drum & Bass wouldn’t exist…one of Britain’s most inventive practitioners of sampladelic funk.”
–ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“A true innovator, MBM main man Jack Dangers helped lay down the rules for dub-inflected electronica, throwing down heavy breaks atop challenging experimental sound”
– CMJ

“The sounds of futuristic riddims that both predate electronic genre nicknames and mock their ideals; one that may be defined purely by its sphere of influence on modern music.
– URB

 

Meat Beat Manifesto’s constantly evolving musical invention has generated a long string of influential futuristic classics in its 21 year career, including such tracks as “God O.D.”, “Strap Down”, “Psyche Out”, “Helter Skelter”, “Radio Babylon”, “Edge of No Control” and “It’s The Music”. The single, “Prime Audio Soup” (from the album Actual Sounds and Voices) was featured in the sci-fi fantasy blockbuster The Matrix and on its platinum-selling soundtrack.

An acknowledged innovator in the electronic music scene, Jack Dangers continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new generations of sound activists. MBM recently contributed the track “Suicide” to the top-selling soundtrack to Underworld: Evolution and Jack’s remix of Tower Of Power’s “What Is Hip?” was nominated for a Grammy in 2006.

Front Line Assembly – 11/4/17

Front Line Assembly

@ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.

Front Line Assembly is the primary focus of Vancouver-based musician Bill Leeb. A founding member of Skinny Puppy, Leeb moved on to form FLA in 1986 with Michael Balch, releasing some cassettes (since released as Total Terror I & II) which paved the way for their 1987 releases: The Initial Command, State of Mind, and Corrosion. In late 1988, they recorded the mini-LP Disorder, since combined with Corrosion and released as Corroded Disorder. Their 1989 release, Gashed Senses and Crossfire, further cemented their popularity in the industrial scene, and prompted their first world tour. By 1990, Balch had departed and Rhys Fulber rounded out the duo, releasing Caustic Grip. But it was two years later when the duo released what for many has become the genre’s crowning moment, the classic album Tactical Neural Implant, which to this day still defines the best of industrial music.

FLA enraged many of their fans in 1994 when they began to experiment with their established electronic-only sound. Millenium, with its heavy doses of live and sampled metal guitars, dared its audience to grow and expand with the band beyond industrial’s perceived barriers. Front Line stepped to the firing line again in 1995 with Hard Wired, which reflected both a return to form and a continued embracing of the guitar. Hard Wired not only picked up where Implant left off, it improved on the sound by adding in elements of all of their side projects. A fall European tour was recorded for the 1996 release Live Wired, their first concert CD ever. Also in 1996, Front Line Assembly followed up Hard Wired with two CD singles, “Circuitry” and “Plasticity”, and toured North America with Numb and Die Krupps.

1997 saw the first realignment of Front Line Assembly since 1990, with the departure of Rhys Fulber and the addition of Chris Peterson to the ranks. Front Line’s 1998 album, FLAvor of the Weak, featured the band’s first flirtation with electronica. Re-Wind, a twin CD of remixes, followed later that year. The duo then released Implode in 1999, and Epitaph in 2001. Epitaph exhibited building intros, trancy synth lines, pulsing beats, and solid melodies, which proved to be contagious anthems for a new future of industrial music.

After the 2001 release of Epitaph, another changing of the FLA “guard” occurred: Chris Peterson left, and original member, Rhys Fulber (Fear Factory, Conjour One) returned. The newly charged Front Line Assembly delivered the highly anticipated Maniacal single in late 2003. The successful single laid the ground work for the 2004 album Civilization, and Vanished EP which featured three unreleased tracks.

Then finally in 2005 came the event that everyone was waiting for, a Front Line Assembly fusion. Bill Leeb, Rhys Fulber, and Chris Peterson with new members Jeremy Inkel, Adrian White, and Jarod Slingerland began working on the 2006 album, Artificial Soldier. The newly re-formed line-up managed to create an album that no only lived up to the expectations of Front Line Assembly fans, but surpassed them. Heavy pounding beats, atmospheric strings, percolating melodies, dynamic synths and Bill Leeb’s trademark vocals couldn’t be fused together any tighter if you tried to do it at an atomic level. As if all of those factors weren’t enough, two guest vocalists appear on Artificial Soldier – Eskil Simonsson from Covenant (on “The Storm”) and Jean-Luc De Meyer from Front 242 (on “Future Fail”)! After the release of the album, the band embarked on a successful world tour, and released the remix album Fallout one year later.

Throughout the years, FLA has seen many line-up changes. Bill Leeb remains the constant behind the band. For 2010, a new line-up has emerged featuring Jeremy Inkel, Chris Peterson on programming duties, and Jared Slingerland on Guitars, and FLA has been joined by Three Inches of Blood guitarist Justin Hagberg, and guest keyboardist Craig Huxtable of Landscape Body Machine.

The result of this reinvigorated lineup is the all new album Improvised. Electronic. Device. As well as the Shifting Through The Lens single. The new songs demonstrate that FLA has not lost its edge over the past almost two and a half decades. And as if Front Line Assembly’s legacy and namesake alone weren’t enough for the album, Al Jougensen from Ministry contributes his vocals to the song “Stupidity.”

Bill’s work can also be heard on a wide number of side projects, including Noise Unit, Delerium, InterMix, Cyberaktif, Equinox, and Synaesthesia. Bill has also contributed music to the popular video game, Quake 3 – The Arena.

Front 242

Front 242’s entire history was clearly defined from the start when, in 1981, Daniel B. laid out his ideas on the first single : Body to Body. Following the recruitment of Patrick Codenys-keyboards, and Jean-Luc De Meyer-vocals in 1982 for the first album GEOGRAPHY. In 1983, Richard 23 joins and completes the band as stage performer and vocalist.

A year later, the project / band developed and quickly reached a specialised audience in Europe. Successive tours and records are logical conclusions of the same concept of electro induced energy music. At the same time, the band already provided for its needs by having their own recording and graphic units. Wax Trax! from Chicago is interested in Front 242; they sign what will be their first US release : the EP “Take One” (1984)

In 1985, the band played for the first time in large European festivals and flew to the US for some dates. They were soon tagged as a very powerful live group, and this form of music continues to spread across Europe under the monitor of “Electronic Body Music” which is the term Front 242 used to described the music they have invented. It is a collage, a synthesis of music and sound, recycled from the media or TV; and Front’s own interpretation of other artistic disciplines.

1988 saw the release of “ Front By Front ” (including Headhunter and Welcome to Paradise) which placed the band onto most of the covers of the European rock press, and made Front 242 a well-known name in the United States via the Wax Trax! record label.

Front’s vision continued toward fuller maturity. The world drastically changed since 1991’s “ Tyranny For You“ album, and the members of the group moved with it. The two albums, “ 06:21:03:11 Up Evil “ and “05:22:09:12 OFF “ broke through the classical Front formula to bring in new vocalists, live guitars and drums. Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Sonic Youth) was called in to mix the album in Front’s studio. Released in 1993, the project showed the scope of radical invention and attitude, that goes hand in hand with Front 242’s music. These releases also allowed them to enjoy the wider reaches a major label could offer, including a summer on the 1993 Lollapalooza tour.

Taking a two year sabbatical didn’t stop Front from moving. It enabled them to realize two attractive CD’s: “Live Code”, recorded during their last world tour, brings to the forefront the power of the group’s live performance and sound and “Mut@ge – Mix@ge”.

The compilation-album “Mut@ge-Mix@ge” proposed The Prodigy, The Orb, Underworld, Rico Conning, and Front 242 all on the same record. More than a “remix” album, all the tracks, enriched by the innovative mixes of the other artists involved, and each dealing with different levels of technology, have been reedited in a specific order by Front 242 to provide a successful continuity of enveloping atmospheres and rhythms.

After a long absence, they releasesd the EP “Still & Raw” and the Album “Pulse”. Based on an aesthetic from the 70’s and 80’s, when the roots of todays electronic music were influenced by German bands , Front 242 re-invented their original sound that was at the center of their art and enriched by 20 years of experience. Analogue technologies and vintage machines pulsing into deconstructed tracks where emotion and research leads to a purely electronic attitude. The band toured the states in 2005 before disappearing from the US… until the legendary Wax Trax Retrospectacle concert brought them back in 2011.

Now, after several side projects and European tours, Front 242 are spending the year performing all over the world for their “CIRCLING OVERLAND 2017 TOUR, including the 12-date North American leg in September and October.

Front 242, an unpredictable band, surprises the old and new audiences – while continuing to make the link with today’s music… with no concessions to their integrity.

A leading proponent of the classic Chicago house and Detroit techno sounds.

Bill’s introduction to the dance music scene began in Miami during the mid eighties. Armed with a fake ID he would frequent local clubs and after hour spots in town. It wasn’t until Bill landed a job at Flamingo Record Pool (run by Bill Kelly of WMC fame) that he discovered house music. Bill remembers when promos with house & acid mixes started arriving from Chicago. He felt so in tune with what was happening that he needed to be there. He finally made his move in 1988 after frequent visits. Shortly after he began to play clubs and loft parties around the city. His first residency was at the “Shelter Nightclub” w/ Johnny Fiasco. He later moved to “The Vault” with Derrick Carter & Mark Farina, as well as “Normandy’s” with Ralphie Rosario. He currently frequents clubs like Panorama Bar in Berlin and also plays at other select destinations around the world.

His studio work began with a remix of Kay Ladrae’s “Lack Of Love” with Vince Lawrence & Karr Krash on Demand Records. More of his earlier production work can be found on labels such as Trax, Relief, & Clubhouse just to name a few.
Bill has recently created a buzz with “ U Won’t C Me ” which has been licensed four times this year, as well as a re-release of his Acid House classic “Take Me Back” (featuring a Ricardo Villalobos remix). Upcoming releases include remixes of Kiddy Smile – Teardrops In The Box on Defected records, an EP of unreleased material on Crimes Of The Future, as well as a string of releases that are due out this spring.
