"Intriguing and intimidating…Dangers' cultural osterizing evolves to the nth
degree of studio sophistication... " *- ROLLING STONE *

"Without MBM's groundbreaking amalgams of hip-hop and industrial dance
music, modern dance music genres such as Big Beat and Drum & Bass wouldn't
exist...one of Britain's most inventive practitioners of sampladelic funk."
*- ALTERNATIVE PRESS *

"A true innovator, MBM main man Jack Dangers helped lay down the rules for
dub-inflected electronica, throwing down heavy breaks atop challenging
experimental sound" *- CMJ*

"The sounds of futuristic riddims that both predate electronic genre
nicknames and mock their ideals; one that may be defined purely by its
sphere of influence on modern music…" *- URB *

MBM is continually evolving, staying three steps ahead of the music scene.
Its tenth album pushes musical boundaries further than it has before,
creating a masterpiece of dubstep and electronica in *Autoimmune*. Kicking
off with the aural collage *"International,"* Jack assembles vocal samples
and arranges them artfully atop a funky dub sway beat, creating a tapestry
that hints at the sonic textures further within. On *"I Hold the
Mic!,"*guest vocalist
*Daddy Sandy*'s toasting weaves in and out of MBM's futuristic
soundscapes.The techno-tinged *"Spanish Vocoder"* pushes his early techno
roots, propelling the dance beats into mesmerizing heights. Bay Area rapper
*Azeem *takes control of the mic on *"Young Cassius"*, a perfect melding of
urban hiphop and electronic jazz. *"Every record is different,"* Jack
explains, *"and in this record I focused on what I like to do versus what
other people like me to do: beats, bass and distortion."*

An acknowledged innovator in the electronic music scene, Jack Dangers
continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new generations of sound
activists. As a premiere remixer, producer and sound designer, he has played
a seminal role in defining tomorrows' music today. Past and current Dangers'
production/remixing projects include: *Public Enemy, David Bowie, Orbital,
Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Bush, Depeche Mode, Tower of Power, The Bee
Gees* and *DJ Spooky & Dave Lombardo *(*Slayer*). MBM also contributed the
track *"Suicide"* to the top-selling soundtrack to *Underworld: Evolution *and
Jack's remix of *Tower Of Power*'s *"What Is Funk?"* was nominated for
a *Grammy
*in 2006.
