Behind Maschine Brennt you will find Joacim Thenander, a guy with a long experience in making computer-based music. In the late ‘80s he was a member of industrial synth band Systema The Affliction, and later he was the driving force behind the thrashsynth/hiphop crossover duo Cultivated Bimbo. In the ‘90s he released more mainstream dance music and remixes, mainly house and techno stuff, but also a few drum’n bass tracks.
Maschine Brennt was born 1991 as a project on the side of Cultivated Bimbo. The following year, Maschine Brennt made only three public performances, and together with Joacim was a few more members on stage to add some extra spice to the almost theatrical performances.
Maschine Brennt made just a handful more tracks during the ‘90s, and after the turn of the millenium Joacim concentrated more on his other projects focusing on techno/house again.
Today, Joacim is releasing tracks using many different names, such as Mobhead, Gorgl, Killa Dawgs, Joey Lucas, Syntronik and Microlab.
