Originally from Minneapolis, Bryan Black began his career as a sound designer for Prince, where he would learn and expand his production skills at the renowned Paisley Park Studios. In 2001 he moved to London and formed the live electro-techno band, Motor. Creating four albums and sharing the stages of Daft Punk, Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode. In 2011 Black wanted to return to world of Techno that he felt Motor has strayed from over the years and began working on a project which would eventually become ‘Black Asteroid’.
