Unit Moebius

Unit Moebius

Profile:
Starting as Europe's only true answer to Underground Resistance, the godfathers of the Hague's industrial techno/planet rock scene, evolved gradually from deep alienating lo-fi acid house and crazy rigid jack trax (mixing the best of the detroit and chicago styles) to hard pounding dark industrial techno, freaky techno funk pop and mean minimalistic machine music. Raw primitive production and sound (the first 7 albums were recorded on a nearly-broken cassette recorder - it was all they had!), very diverse in style, but always with that typical twisted, paranoid and fucked-up drive, a bad sweaty groove that feels like a mindfuck.

Members: Menno van Os, Guy Tavares, Jan Duivenvoorden, Ferenc E. van der Sluijs

The only true European answer to Underground Resistance came straight out of the sewer of The Hague. And imho UM overclassed UR hands down. There has been a lot of confusion about the number of members of Unit Moebius because of that one obscure (and legendary)picture of 4 men (I-F, Jan, Guy Tavares and Duracel)but musically Unit Moebius was mainly Jan Duivenvoorden. Of course, the whole image and atmosphere around UM couldn't have existed without Guy Tavares. Duracel and I-F only contributed to UM by assisting Jan with some live gigs. It's unbelievable what Jan could musically achieve with such restricted gear, tracks were mostly made with only a handful of crappy drumcomputers, cheap synths and broken mixers. Unit Moebius did it all: acid, detroit, chigaco house, electro, industrial, ambient, techno, etc etc but always with that typical wonky, distorted and weird touch which could only be provided by Jan himself. Another thing that sets Unit Moebius apart from Underground Resistance is the no-nonsense, non-commercial approach in general and last but not least: humour. Unit Moebius has been a huge, huge influence on my musical taste and they haven't lost a bit of their charm, weirdness and mythical status. THIS is true underground music.
