"In the beginning, there was Jack. And Jack had a groove."
On Thursday, January 26th, Strangelove pays homage to electronic
visionary Jack Dangers.
DJs Tomas Diablo, Mitch (Death Guild, Meat), and very special guest Ben
Stokes (DHS, MBM) spin the best mixes and our favorite tracks from Meat
Beat Manifesto, Tino Corp, and Jack's remix work for such artists as
Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, DHS, the Cranes, Coil, BiGod 20,
Consolidated, and many more. And, of course, the best dark electro,
industrial, new wave, and goth.
We will be giving away tickets to see Meat Beat Manifesto at Mezzanine
on February 9th, as well as other Meat Beat Manifesto-related treats
such as posters and classic MBM albums.

A brief history of Jack
After the breakup of the group 'Perennial Divide', Jack Dangers formed
Meat Beat Manifesto in 1987, and mixed hip-hop beats with power noise.
Initially considered an industrial act, MBM released a string of
hard-hitting tracks on the Wax Trax label, such as 'God O.D.', 'Strap
Down', and 'Genocide'. In 1990, Meat Beat Manifesto changed labels and
released the seminal classic '99%', which contained 'Psyche Out', and
'Helter Skelter'. A B-side from this album, 'Radio Babylon', is widely
recognized as the catalyst for the birth of jungle music. In the 90's,
Jack inspired the big-beat sounds of artists like Prodigy and the
Chemical Brothers, and released 3 more albums - 'Satiricon', the double
album 'Subliminal Sandwich', and 'Actual Sounds and Voices'. After the
commercial success of the single 'Prime Audio Soup' on the Matrix
soundtrack, Jack dissolved Meat Beat Manifesto and released a string of
records for DJs on the Tino Corp label (founded by Jack and Ben
Stokes). In recent years, Jack reformed Meat Beat Manifesto and
released the albums 'RUOK?', the jazz-oriented 'At the Center' and
follow-up EP 'Off-centre', the DVD album 'In Dub', and a remix
collection based on the Storm the Studio sessions. Jack has also
recently released a number of albums of his solo work.
Jack Dangers is also an established remix artist, and his distinctive
sound is instantly recognizable.
