Voltage Controlled is written by Mike Beard, an electronic musician,producer and DJ hailing from the northern wasteland of Edmonton Canada. A full time Logic Certified trainer, Mike’s eclectic sound ranges from harsh industrial noisescapes to electroclash pop anthems and everything in between. His diverse approach to the digital side of production has seen him using anything from amiga mod trackers, Commodore 64s, Atari STs, Nintendo Gameboys, iPhones, as well as the odd PC or trusty Mac. His studio, Gear Media, contains a mashup of old and new analog hardware synths and drum machines as well as digital hard and soft synths. Mike’s been a fan of electronic music and technology old and new as long as he can remember.
Voltage Controlled is all about those obsessions. Electricity and adrenaline.
