Muzik 4 machines is a band from Montreal, Canada, which produces electronic music with a grunge twist.
The band was formed in 1996 by TBA03 and was particularly active from 1999 to 2002. From 2002 to 2005, Tb concentrated on some solo works and third-party productions. As of late 2005, the band officially decided to get back together and prepare some new material.
It started as a 1 man project, equipped with a Portastudio, a guitar and a TR-707 drum machine, early compositions were a mix between early house and grunge music, mixing the 4 on the floor rhythm with loud fuzz guitar. As the technology evolved, so did the Project; recruiting performers and signers and buying, finding or building new gadgets and sound mangling devices. Computers were a revolution in the course of things, starting with trackers, evolving towards MIDI sequencers and then full blown audio sequencing.
The Music also evolved from simple riffs over a steady beat to more complex and mysterious texture in some works and at the same time exploded into full blown (at the time) modern Rave party music in others. The band got some good hits and even sold Cd's worldwide on the then underground mp3.com website that since closed.
Over the years, different styles were explored as the personel changed (house music, techno, drum and bass, rock, noise rock, pop, trance, urban music and some unclassifiable sounds). Performers including Luke, MisterW, YUL and DP participated to different Live events and special recordings (all available online).
Back to full housy-electro-Rock&noise lately, the band producing new material and making some videos.
