A Minneapolis native, Bryan Black once worked as a sound designer for Prince at Paisley Park Studios. During the ’90s, he performed with a series of industrial groups, eventually founding Motor, a post-industrial dance-music act inspired by EBM bands (electronic body music; not to be confused with EDM) such as Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb. Motor, comprised of Black and Parisian musician Mr. No (aka Olivier Grasset), toured with Depeche Mode in 2009. Reinventing himself as Black Asteroid, Black now makes techno that affirms his industrial roots for some of the genre’s most esteemed imprints, including Chris Liebing’s CLR and Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe. Black Asteroid tops the bill with Ayarcana and 138 at a show hosted by recently launched, L.A.-based, industrial-tinged techno label Omen Recordings.
