Jack Dangers is the veteran composer and sound sculptor behind Meat Beat Manifesto. His constantly evolving musical invention has generated a long string of influential futuristic classics, "God O.D.", "Strap Down", "Psyche Out", "Helter Skelter", "Radio Babylon", "Edge of No Control" and "It's The Music". The single, "Prime Audio Soup", from the Meat Beat Manifesto album Actual Sounds and Voices, was featured in the sci-fi fantasy blockbuster The Matrix and on its platinum-selling soundtrack.

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). Meat Beat Manifesto 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.

Meat Beat Manifesto's most recent studio album was the experimental At The Center released by Thirsty Ear in May 2005 as the latest installment of its widely acclaimed "Blue Series" in which the jazz and electronic music worlds meet to create a brand new synthesis. This was followed by MBM's first American tour in seven years in early summer of 2005 followed by visits to Europe and Japan and a second leg of US touring in early 2006. CD and DVD commemorations of this tour were released as the limited edition on-line CD Live '05 and the Travelogue: Live '05 DVD released in November 2006 by MVD.

Jack has just exited the studio, completing work on hi new album Autoimmune to be released in Spring 2008.

- 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...
