wajid-mic.jpgWajid Yaseen – vocals/programming/various extended instruments – Born in Manchester, England, Wajid’s formative music education fluctuated from the influence of mid-eighties electro and the thrash of The Boredoms and Sonic Youth. Re-locating to Sweden, he formed a punk band who performed using only damaged and broken equipment. Re-locating to London several years later, Wajid joined the group Fun-Da-Mental as bassist and unofficial noise-maker and toured with them for two years. It was around this time he began work on the initial archetype for 2nd Gen, a distorted electronic project and consequently released the Noise Sculptures EP through Flo Records. It wasn’t long before the Mute label expressed an interest in 2nd Gen which gave Wajid the opportunity to push his creative urge to much wider territories . Mute released the overwhelming ‘Against Nature’ EP and followed on for his debut album, ‘Irony Is’ . Skills and techniques sharpened, Wajid then went on to release the ‘Flicknives’ album on the Quatermass label. He has since produced the latest album for London industrialists Leechwoman, and has remixed an eclectic array of bands including Depeche Mode, Robert Miles, Venetian Snares and Hawkwind. He has also been involved with collaborations with various choreographers, contemporary dance companies and live-art practitioners such as Candoco, Athina Vahla, Franko B, Mara Castilho, Reza Aramesh and Gail Sneddon, producing an array of work from installations to film to dance theatre. His other projects include an immersive sound art/performance installation titled Ear Cinema , the infamous destructivist nightclub Scrapclub , and is the founder of the sound art collective Modus Arts
