Apart from being well known as founding member of The Klinik and for his one man performances as Dive, armed with a mini disc, megaphone and 2 strobocopes, Dirk Ivens has proven worldwide on many stages that often less means more.
Also his 2 other projects with long time musical partner Eric van Wonterghem, the minimal synthpop of Absolute Body Control and the noisy face to face beats from Sonar prove this statement.
Besides these musical outputs he also runs 2 labels Daft records and Minimal Maximal, concentrating on Electro/EBM/Wave releases, a fine mixture of well know and newcomer bands.
Melodic / atmospheric electronic music with an edge
They provide us with a new inviting dark, gothic, industrial sound, in some ways, similar to the project known as Benestrophe.
Benestrophe is the group involving Dwayne & Gary Dassing (Music), along with Rich Mendez (Lyrics / Vocals). Dwayne & Gary Dassing are the two brothers who bring us the revolutionary sound of Mentallo & the Fixer.
Jihad initially included brothers James (Music) and Rich Mendez (Vocals), but now consists of only James. He was originally influenced by association with the Dassings & his brother’s Benestrophe project since it began sometime between 1987 – 1988. Jihad became known for their song titled, ‚Hands That Hide“, featured on the quadruple CD collection from RAS DVA called, ‚There Is No Time‘.
After the release of ‚A Prayer in the Night‘ in 1995, James continued writing music (Not as often as he would like) and experimented with vocals on several tracks. He has done many remixes for various electronic bands such as Object, Headdreamer, Red + Test, MC1R, Pyrroline, tEaR!doWn, Tri-State, Terminal State, kFactor, The Opposer Divine, Ultimate Soldier and Slowdive (Unofficial cover). He’s also co-written several tracks such as ‚When Angels Pass Away‘ (Pyrroline – formerly Nordschlacht), Red + Test and KIFOTH. James has been in contact with Electro Aggression Records and is in the process of working on a new release with no release date as of yet.
Electronic compositions comprised of a traditional verse / chorus structure. Musical elements that typically consist of a combination of electronic synth patches along with (Sampled) real instruments with an overlay of dark / heavy vocals.
