Originally from Swindon, UK, but currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jack Dangers continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new generations of sound activists. As a premiere remixer, producer and sound designer, he has played a seminal role in defining tomorrow'' music today. Past Danger's production/remix projects include: Public Enemy, David Bowie, Orbital, DepÍche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Coil, David Byrne, Bush, Banco de Gaia, and The Shamen. Adding to this list of heavy hitting achievements, the single, "Prime Audio Soup" from the MBM album Actual Sounds and Voices, was featured in the sci-fi fantasy blockbuster, The Matrix and on its platinum-selling soundtrack. R.U.O.K? collaborators include the turntablist-of-the-moment, Z-Trip, and ambient legend Alex Paterson of The Orb. Z-Trip, perhaps best known for his very listenable scratch/blend DJ sets that combine hip-hop and classic rock, lends his scratching ability to the very funky "What Does It all Mean?" & "Hankerchief Head". With the sharp, programmed drums achieving very interesting nuances alongside Z-Trip's deft scratching, these tracks sound as fresh and contemporary as any of the current output from the Bay Area turntablist community. Dangers says of the Z-Trip tracks, "They were more of the instant, in the studio jamming style rather than the more meticulous approach I used on the rest of the album. All the takes are done in one, and then you're on to the next thing." Alex Paterson contributes on the eerie "Horn of Jericho." U.R.O.K!
