“Intriguing and intimidating, Dangers’ cultural osterizing evolves to the nth degree of studio sophistication…”
“Without MBM’s groundbreaking amalgams of hip-hop and industrial dance music, modern dance music genres such as Big Beat and Drum & Bass wouldn’t exist…one of Britain’s most inventive practitioners of sampladelic funk.”
“A true innovator, MBM main man Jack Dangers helped lay down the rules for dub-inflected electronica, throwing down heavy breaks atop challenging experimental sound”
