JOHN "BILEEBOB" WILLIAMS

Bileebob creates sexy electronic music featuring vocals, soft & hard synths, hand-made instruments, and life sounds. He has been involved with the Detroit and Midwest electronic music scene since the mid 90's. He has performed internationally in Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Scotland and Nova Scotia as a member of the Detroit Grand Pubahs and Underground Resistance. As a DJ, he blends a seamless mix of all genres, including techno and house, electro and new wave, twisting knobs and tweaking the EQ to the crowd's anticipated delight.

In the mid-90s he sang lead for a local ska band, The Exceptions, and released 2 CDs and various comps with them. He has released tracks on UR, SubBass SoundSystem, Plan B Recordings, JiveElectro, THROW and +8.

BLACK ECHO ZONE

Black Echo Zone is a creation by Scott McEntyre. Meant to be an effort to meld old classic Detroit Techno sound with new unfamiliar rhythms and beats. When listening to any BEZ collaborations the listener should clearly hear deep bass along with beautiful melodies and driving drums. So escape to a new world of sound and imagination and darkness.

CHARLES R PEARSON

Raised in suburban Chicago, landing in Detroit at the right moment in the middle 1990's Charles' influences include: Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Brian Eno, King Crimson, Robert Fripp, Roxy Music, The Stooges, Black Sabbath, TREX, Prince, Cluster, Neu, Phuture, Larry Heard, Jesse Saunders, Adonis, Trax Records, Wax Trax Records, Ministy, Laibach, Model 500, Egyptian Lover, Afrikka Bambatta, A Number of Names, Jonsun Bros/Crew, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Hyperactive, ESP Woody McBride, Drop Bass Records, Terry Mullan, Delta-9, Danny the Wildchild, Daft Punk, Direct Beat Records, Aux-88, and a vast number of other musical artist and movements that could name dropped to infinity. The main thrust of Charles music inspiration has been with regards to transit, economic geography, consumerism, loss, longing, transformation, distortion, attack, decay, sustain, resonance.

CURTIS W PAUL

Inspired by electronic music coming out on the air-waves of local Detroit radio stations, Curtis Paul creates electronic songs on an IBM PC using GW-BASIC during grade school. Curtis studied classical percussion as a child through to high school. During high school Curtis experiments with computer based sampling, drum machines and sequencing.

In 1992, graduation from high school meant working with Steve Rathbone's "Junken Groil Carcinogens of Popboy Green Christ" electronic death metal project. Immediately after Curtis pursues solo electronic composition inspired by the weirdness of Downriver, the rotted emptiness of Detroit, and the local Detroit motown/punk/art/techno/electronic music he grew up with. Curtis spends the 1990's building up a synthesizer studio. Curtis spends his time in Detroit socializing/scheming with area musicians and artists.

From the 1990's to mid-2000's Curtis records and performs with various Detroit groups and artists on music ranging from futuristic hip-hop, noise, improvisational electronic jazz, and techno. Curtis records hundreds of solo tracks and many live recordings with no serious interest in releasing albums, self-promoting, or touring. In mid-2000's Curtis releases a track from his Abused Current project on Detroit record label Kenaob's "Smodowapo" album. This marks the beginning of Curtis's musical sabbatical.

In 2015, Curtis returns from his sabbatical to begin performing and composing again.
