BLUE MIDNIGHT HIGHWAY BIO
The music of Toledo’s Blue Midnight Highway is best described as an epic sonic adventure featuring a kaleidoscope of classic and alternative rock influenced; trip-hop, dark wave, industrial metal and ethereal dream pop textures, filled with listening pleasure & ear candy. BMH’s sound is extremely visual with each track transporting the listener into a different sonic landscape.
The cohesive element amidst this multiplicity is the quality of production & composition. Each beat is masterfully constructed with attention to detail. The synth soloing and use of expressive effects adds “human” touch to all of the mechanized sequencing. BMH’s embraces electronic music technology as a tool dictated by humans, not the other way around. Vocally incorporating the talents of (MC)-Tony Rey, (Singer)-Natural, and (MC/screamer)-Rayne Wilder & Erb himself.
This Alternative/Electronic project began it’s journey in 1994, in Toledo, Ohio, and was founded by Erb - Synths, Vocals, Producer, formerly of the industrial rock band Trashcan Tribal who opened for acts such as Babyland, Hanzel & Gretel, & Thrill Kill Cult & performed at the legendary CBGB’s. With production and engineering credits on over 30 cd’s including XXX records “Dim View of the Future” an Industrial/Goth compilation, and a co-production credit on Yellow’s soundtrack recordings for the Motion Picture Soundtrack for the Marlon Wayans film“Senseless”.
In 2005 Erb re-united MC Tony Rey with whom he worked on J.P. the Unknown’s - “It’s the” a Trip Hop album that achieved underground following & 4 star review by SPICE magazine in 1994.
