When I got asked to write a piece on the history of jungle I started sweating immediatly cause first I am in no way a journalist/writer, just a lover of the music and second the history of jungle is all over the place! I heard and read so many different stories over the years so it's hard to find the exact story. So I claim in no way that this is the truth it's more a collection of the info I heard/collected,quoted, edited, chopped, cut and pasted..
The dystopian anxiety fueled sounds of Gore Tech represent the cutting edge in nuevo-industrial, future-phobic drum & bass music. From as early as 2011, Gore Tech has been welding together the rough edges in state-of-the-art technophobic nightmare-ish sound-scapes, working in collaboration with other production outfits, bands and products alike to produce their unique styles of Drum & Bass, Future-Doom and Dub.
Radio / tv sound designer by day, electro-breakcore mentalist by night, this smiling misfit come from a background in thrash metal and industrial music, with his previous 12-piece metal band gigs involved fake-blood-splattering theatrics and on-stage riots, he later went the solo electronic route as it was more efficient at causing mayhem.
Intrigued by his way of adeptly and confidently switching from solid, body-rocking electro grooves to abstract, mentalist breakcore, feisty hyper-processed dancefloor electronics, labels like Bedroom Research ,Peace Off, and Tigerbeat6 have been quick to release his militant, lunatic sound. He's also one of the member of Fausten , a collaborative project with Stormfield , the Combat Recording label Boss . An Album of Fausten was release in 2013 on the label Ad Noiseam .
Droon! Your favourite Belgian B-list Breakcore Live Act! MIG-helmet? Beard? Makeshift keytar? That's the one.
