Blasted Mechanism

Evolutionary artist collective Blasted Mechanism marked their highly anticipated UK arrival with the release of their debut UK single Start To Move on June 11th 2010. Released through Revolver Records the single preceded their first ever UK performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival which was on Sunday June 27th 2010.

Founded / invented in the Summer of 1995 the Portuguese composite combine revolutionary technology with ancestral soundscapes of fanatical stature, to conjure melodies and beats of exquisite proportion. Their pioneering approach to structure and harmony allows this enigmatic collective of thinkers to blend qualities of electro, reggae and dub to create something truly magnificent.

Start To Move includes progressions of tribal beats, futuristic sounds and an outrageously evocative structure all marry, resulting in five minutes of pure, utopian ecstasy. The accompanying video, simply put, is a spectacular cinematic experience, NOT to be ignored. Watch and indulge in all it’s HD glory here:

Glastonbury 2010 marked Blasted Mechanism’s first UK performance. On Sunday June 27th the collective manifested themselves on the West Dance Stage, and presented a spectacle that was out of this world. Dressed extravagantly in alien-like, tribal attire, the collective prove both visually outstanding and melodically sumptuous. Having already been nominated for an MTV Award three times and having supported the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Rage Against The Machine, this inaugural performance was certainly one not to be missed.

Blasted Mechanism pride themselves on a sustainable communitarian based living. They are driven by earth care, energy production and share an intense love for music.
