Bio

Since exploding onto the scene in 2008, Broken Note have followed a path of unrelenting sonic carnage across the globe and cemented their uniquely heavy sound as an iconic mark on electronic music today.

Broken Note stand at the forefront of well-crafted heavy music; wrapping cinematic sound design and brutally heavy bass around the aggressive beats typically found in heavy metal and dark Drum n Bass. Layering distorted leads and filtered reeses between flurries of staggering beats, visceral auditory hallucinations pull the listener through spaces open and confined. Their tight flow carries their tunes across relentlessly hammering beats and through beautifully decaying breakdowns with an underlying sense of dark nostalgia. Crossing an array of tempos, they draw from a sonically industrial landscape to deliver astonishing heaviness that’s as razor sharp in clubs as it is across the expanses of festival audiences.

Following their debut LP release on Ad Noiseam, Broken Note continued to dispatch their towering sound through notable labels such as Boka, Prspct, and Ninja Tune. Respect for their dynamic sound has led to collaborations with renowned artists, with releases to date including collaborations with Juno Reactor, Cooh, DJ Hidden, and Machine Code (Dean Rodell and Current Value). Amon Tobin can also be counted amongst Broken Note’s fans, with a mix commissioned for the Amontobin.com website, a well-received remix of 'GoTo10' from the highly acclaimed ISAM album and his tracks featuring heavily in Amon Tobins DJ sets. A highly sought-after musical force, Broken Note have followed a hectic schedule since they started touring that has taken them across North and South America, Australia and Russia as well as regular performances at events and festivals across Europe.

Live sets are based around Ableton; utilizing various midi controllers and FX running with on the spot warping, cueing, and live key work. The content is a mash up of everything from dark Dubstep to Hardtekno, the most evil DnB to Hardcore.  Including cutting-edge original material mixed with edits of tracks from those artists they draw inspiration from. Their distinctive sounds is guaranteed to be a highlight of any night they are playing.
