The Void Of Nothingness
The new Black Asteroid single sounds like nothing else.
Music should be dangerous, and techno is way too comfortable and predictable at the moment. “Flesh” brings the raw energy and experimental spirit that launched Black Asteroid 10 years ago.
Obsessed with sound design, BRYAN BLACK aka BLACK ASTEROID started his music career as a sound designer and keyboard tech for PRINCE at PAISLEY PARK STUDIOS in his hometown of Minneapolis. While working for Prince, Black proceeded to create his own music—some of the most innovative techno records released on labels such as MUTE and KOMPAKT.
These records caught the ear of MARTIN GORE from DEPECHE MODE. Soon after, Black was on tour with Depeche Mode with his band MOTOR, and recording songs with Martin Gore at his home studio in Santa Barbara and Berlin.
In 2011 the debut single “Engine 1” introduced Black Asteroid to the world, and introduced an industrial rock sound into techno that quickly took off, propelling Black to play at clubs such as Berghain, Fabric London and major festivals. The focus was in favor of song structures and vocals in a techno template.
After a string of EPs, the debut album “Thrust” was released in 2017 with many cross over singles, featuring vocals from ZOLA JESUS, COLD CAVE and MICHELE LAMY.
The fashion designer RICK OWENS picked up on what was happening and used Black’s music for his runway shows in Paris. The two quickly became friends and collaborators.
Currently, Black Asteroid is prepping a new album and several EPs, in addition to working in the fashion world, having just released a collection of sunglasses with Valley Eyewear, and music for Raf Simons and Rick Owens.
