5-track preview

                                     

Mutant Beat Dance has returned with their debut self-titled 25 track album, a record album booklet consisting of 6 records in 3 different formats of 12″s, 7″s and 10”, a CD and in digital formats.
This concept has been in development since 2015 with over two hours running time.

The debut album from renegade trio Mutant Beat Dance  (Traxx aka Melvin Oliphant, Beau Wanzer and Steve Summers) takes the wild and free sound of Chicago’s Music Box era into the 21st Century. Over twenty-five tracks the album mines an oft cited but rarely understood ground at the intersection of Post-Punk, Minimal Wave, Industrial, Disco Dub, EBM and proto-House / early-House. “Mutant Beat Dance.” is an epic journey into a classic American ideology that had its apex in Chicago.

This aesthetic has already proven influential on many artists across the globe. Least of which is the Grammy winning LCD Soundsystem whose members Tyler Pope and Patrick Mahoney back Melvin on vocals here on the Martin Hannett and Howard Devoto inspired “Feed The Enemy” – a cut that shows how wide and deep this epic record goes. Another LCD member Gavin Rayna Russom also provides vocals on the later cut “Geometrical Disease.” That these collaborations are included here should come as no surprise to anyone who caught the recent LCD tour – Traxx was the opening DJ on that nationwide tour. You can check out his opening set from Chicago last November at the link below.

Traxx has been working on this concept in various forms throughout the last decade on release for Discos Capablanca, Rong Music, Hour House Is Your Rush Records, L.I.E.S. (Long Island Electrical Systems), Light Sounds Dark, Rush Hour and his own Nation label finally refining his concept into its most thoroughly developed explored on this the debut M.B.D album that was started in 2015.

Mutant Beat Dance was originally a duo made up of Traxx, and self-described weirdo, Chicagoan Beau Wanzer. Given the scope of the new project it became logical and necessary to expand the unit to include its newest member Brooklyn based Steve Summers.

Together this hard-working trio has completed an album with an enormous diversity of song styles unlike anything they have ever done before. Unique in its musical range and content from obscure electronics with subliminal messages to funk laden machine grooves, industrial soundscapes, Detroit dirge, cryptic ankle bitter anthems and beyond this is a genre-bending challenging epic of an album.

Ron Trent meets Skymark! Two masterminds at work. This player previews Skymark – Find A Place In This Crazy World (RHM 028). 

The organic meets the electronic – musician meets machine. Pressed Loud For Optimum DJ Play. Summer is happening…

DIGITAL MUSIC STORES

Ron Trent takes on the mighty Skymark original, and elevates the listener to a whole other place like only he can. Trent treats us to one his deepest, dubbiest jams to date – embracing the strength of the song while interweaving his own rhythm throughout.

The original track, here on the flip, featured on Skymark’s 2015 ‘Wave From The Nucleus’ LP- a beautiful song from the sun-kissed Swiss musician and producer who resided in Rio de Janeiro for many years, and now in Barcelona.

A real meeting of minds – both artists express their love for the deep and organic, incorporating Brazilian sounds, gospel, disco, jazz and soul in their music. Their similar, detailed approach and ideology blend perfectly on this 12” release.
