MOTOR is Mr. No and Bryan Black. MOTOR is totally un-compromised music that deliberately breaks any musical restrictions or sound barriers. Electronic music practising a punk ethic, MOTOR is unlike anything else: abrasive, strangely melodic, pulsing like a machine. A sound, which by no mistake, has put them in a class of their own.
Mr. No comes from the industrial wastelands of Paris, and Bryan Black from Minneapolis. Now based in London, the duo formed as MOTOR in 2003, meeting by chance in a smoky Camden underworld where Mr. No was playing drums and Bryan was watching in awe. Bryan Black was seminal pop star Prince’s sound designer and programmer at Paisley Park Studios in the late 90’s before setting off to London to pursue his own musical projects whilst Mr. No arrived in London in 1989 with a mission to turn drummers into drum machines.
The duo have since gone on to remix the likes of Marilyn Manson’s ‘Personal Jesus’, Throbbing Gristle’s ‘Persuasion’ and most recently, Depeche Mode’s ‘Precious’ single. The hype even hit as far as Japan, where MOTOR were commissioned to remix the theme song for the final Godzilla film, Final Wars, collaborating this time with Felix Da Housecat.
The MOTOR duo are also known for their work under the alias XLOVER who have an album, Pleasure & Romance, on DJ Hell’s esteemed Gigolo Records and their multiple collaborations with Felix Da Housecat include co-writing tracks off his latest LP Devin Dazzle & The Neon Fever as well as producing tracks for Princess Superstar and Japanese rock god Atsushi Sakurai.
MOTOR’s last single, ‘Sweatbox’ was released in the summer of 2005, and became an anthem which topped the charts of everyone including Dave Clarke, Miss Kittin, Sven Vath and Alter Ego. ‘Sweatbox’ is hands down a monster record, with a crescendo drum avalanche that rocked the tiniest ‘sweatboxes’ to festival dance tents all over the globe last year. Recently ‘Sweatbox’ has re-surfaced as a mash-up mix on Gigolo under their XLOVER guise, fusing the band’s ‘Lovesucker’ with MOTOR’s dark acid destroyer to make ‘Suckbox’. Also Chris Liebing has delivered a punishing one-sided limited remix of ‘Sweatbox’ for novamute. 2006 has started with a bang!
After releasing a string of raw, bold and innovative singles, MOTOR decided it was time to get into the studio and produce an album that would push things to an extreme not yet heard on the dancefloor in both power and energy. Their debut album, Klunk, showcases the duo’s most daring and exciting moments to date. Packed with dark menacing grooves, corrosive industrial drumming and the lost, tripped out cranial bending atmosphere of a party that just didn’t quite stop, Klunk ’joins the dots between Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, Final Cut, Plastikman, acid house and minimal techno creating a glorious dancefloor killing sound that is uniquely MOTOR. Preceded by the killer ‘Black Powder’, a single that is a perfect entry into the dark corners of the dancefloor, MOTOR will also be touring extensively throughout the year as a three piece with Bryan Black and Mr. No being joined onstage by psychotic wildman Hugo Menendez with plenty of vocals, live drums, synths, monochrome visuals and the kick drum punch to match. Make no mistake, MOTOR are back behind the wheel.
