About Thavius Beck: Composer of mercurial soundtracks for uncertain times, Thavius Beck conjoins various strains of electronic music to arrive at a daringly ambitious sound. He has received recognition in publications such as The Wire, Spin, Q, and NME for his solo releases under the moniker Adlib, the Labwaste project with fellow LA artist Subtitle, his recent production for fellow Mush artist K-The-I???, his early work with Global Phlowtations, numerous guest appearances and remixes (including one for Nine Inch Nails), and producing for/touring in support of/and accompanying Saul Williams. An exceptional programmer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Thavius Beck's many talents allow him to take a song from idea to completion without ever having to leave the comforts of his Powerbook. Uncompromising vision and an ear for the unusual are staples of this writer/producer's work.
