Biography

music project based out of Boston, Massachusetts, USA whose creativity has been felt in the , and genres amongst others. mE is most often compared to a hybrid elements of The Prodigy, Combichrist and Aphex Twin. The unique style of mentalEscape combines aggressive and sparse double layered beats, gritty bass lines, atonal melodic synths and horror film influenced soundscapes. The showcase of variety of styles cannot be defined in one genre as the songs range from big beat-industrial to down tempo abstract trip-hop. In 2001, mentalEscape, under the pseudonym of Detrude, released the first single Industrial Whore which hit #1 on the MP3.com Industrial Rock charts.) The single was remixed by GITM (Ghost In The Machine) and both mentalEscape and GITM enjoyed having the song be featured on a compilation album released by Raw42 Records called Definitive:Twisted (circa 2001). A review from A&R stated: “Industrial Whore (GITM Mix) by Detrude is a fantastic blast of industrial dance for the clubbers. Pounding, throbbing and sweat-inducing.”

An early 2000 review from LISTEN.Com stated that mentalEscape, “convolutes melodic Euro grooves with a metallic Industrial appeal and a Hardcore affinity. Throbbing beats and breaks immersed in a mass of chemical confusion hit hard and fast. Robert Miles, outside of a Nine Inch Nails show.”

In 2006, mentalEscape was tapped to score the music for the indie drama-comedy film Duality. www.dualitythemovie.com
