Raised on a diet of pure filth; Broken Note have dragged their own unique sound kicking and screaming to the electronic music scene. Combining lean, considered production skills with an appreciation of diverse rough beats; they have quickly established themselves as a sonic force to be reckoned with.

With several critically acclaimed releases quickly racked up over the past 2 years on established and much praised labels such as Ad Noiseam, Ruff (Peace Off’s slow and nasty sister), Damage, Prospct & Sustained; their reputation continues to be cemented as one of the current emerging forerunners in the underground electronic music scene. November 2009 also saw the release of the ‘Terminal Static’ retrospective album on Ad Noiseam, with notable remixes by renowned producers such as Hecq and I Am The Sun (Enduser and Casey Beagle).

2009 showcased Broken Note’s talent with prominent festival gigs, with a headline sets on the Overkill stage at world leading Glade electronic music festival and Maschinenfest industrial festival; as well as tours and gigs in Europe, North America, Scandinavia & Japan.

Their slower-tempo sound can only very loosely be described as Dubstep, with little in common with much of the scene’s output. Instead they draw from the Sino-Rastafarian sound and heavy bass; but also combine this with more of the kind of dark and aggressive beats that can be found in Breakcore and Jungle.

Their Drum and Bass output is similarly disturbingly brutal, with undulating beats and bass that are unashamed to draw from the darkly edgy sounds of Gabba and Techno. It delivers a rhythmic pounding that has set dance floors around the world on fire with its astonishing heaviness. The result is both at home in clubs and the vast expanse of a decaying urban warehouse, inspiring visions of a dark and techy future for their music.

Their live sets are currently based around Ableton Live, utilizing various midi controllers and FX running with on the spot warping, cueing and live key work. The content tends to be a mash up of everything from dark Dubstep to Hardtekno, the most evil DnB to Hardcore; playing many of their own tunes but mixing these with music and edits of tunes by those who they draw inspiration from. They are both diverse and interesting, as well as being guaranteed to be one of the highlights of any night at which they are playing.

Broken Note is appreciated and regularly given radio airtime by the likes of Mary-Anne Hobbes and Rob Booth. Their sound is being widely received around the globe and the dark spreading tide is only set to further corrupt ears around the world, with past, planned and active collaborations with Amon Tobin, Machinecode, SPL, Reso, DJ Producer and Juno Reactor.
