Meat Beat Manifesto (LIVE)
Presented by Bodyshock and 120 Minutes-
Meat Beat Manifesto, often shortened as Meat Beat, Manifesto or MBM, is an electronic music group formed in 1987 in Swindon, United Kingdom. The band, fronted by Dangers (the only permanent member), has proven versatile over the years, experimenting with techno, dubstep, drum and bass, IDM, industrial, dub and jazz fusion while touring the world and influencing major acts such as Nine Inch Nails, The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy.Some of the band's earlier work has been credited with influencing the rise of the trip hop, big beat, and drum and bass genres.
Jack Dangers is the composer and sound sculptor behind MBM. 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, 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.
Meat Beat's new record, “Impossible Star”, draws on the current paranoid and surreal political/cultural climate. Dangers likens the record “to an MC Escher optical illusion which spirals around and around and never seems to end.”
