Maschine Brennt

Behind Maschine Brennt you will find Joacim Thenander, a guy with a long experience in making computer­based 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 thrash synth/hip-hop 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 and bass tracks.

Maschine Brennt (MB) 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 millennium, Joacim concentrated more on his other projects focusing on techno/house again. Today, Joacim is releasing tracks using many different names, such as Lobtec, Milo Zanetti, Mobhead, Gorgl, Killa Dawgs, Joey Lucas, Syntronik and Microlab.

But the main focus is once again Maschine Brennt.
