American artist Ariel and German electronic music producer Jan Mueller have joined forces to produce the criminal sounds of Prime Suspect. With a blend artpop-disco-industrial-techno-go-go punk and live vocals this duo creates a distinctive, futuristic hybrid of dance.
The compelling mix of electronic punk features both Jan & Ariel‘s emotive vocals, adding a taste of yesterday‘s anarchist sarcastic flavor, but never interferes with the music. Jan as progammer and composer uses as many analogue sounds as possible, bringing musicians into the studio, creating a virtual band.
Featured on various tracks of the up and coming debut album, BANG is the guitar mastership of the legendary East Bay Ray of the Dead Kennedys. The story doesn‘t end there. Jan has for the last 15 years co-produced the internationally acclaimed techno-trance band X-Dream, plus various other side projects. Ariel joined as vocalist for X-Dreams last album "Interface". Supporting members are Johann Bley on drums (ex-member of KMFDM & Juno Reactor) & Jasper Scholtz, bass guitar and vocals.
Jan & Ariel‘s talent exceed music production. Jan also is a very adept computer progammer in informatics, web-design & animation. Ariel comes from an extensive background in dance and fine-arts. (Prime Suspect Ideology & Future Release Plan)… Living in a genre specific world as an artist with a palate for embracing various styles and ideas is often thwarted by such a protocol. We are all about defying this rule! Prime Suspect delivers the world of "and",dropping the calculated concept of "or". So get ready for quality music! Our first single on vinyl is due to be released in March 2007, followed by our full-length debut album, BANG.
