The Implants / Bio

The Implants is the brainchild of its only band member, Mike Burns. His knack for creating catchy, straightforward music is constantly evolving. When it comes to producing, mixing, or the laying down of all tracks, Burns is the only one involved. He works with funky grooves and simple beats that when combined; create a sound he labels as Electro-Groove Rock. There are no confusing lyrics and no complicated riffs. Each song is multi-layered, well thought out, and meticulously produced with hours of fine tuning.
Throughout his 20 years of creating and writing music, Burns has branched out into the world of music production. This has lead to the release of two CDs containing all original tracks. His third album is 'Generic Genius' released by The Implants in 2011. The Implants have finished an unreleased follow-up remix album called 'Generic Remix' that can be heard at facebook.com/the implants. 'Generic Genius' has been so well received that shortly after its release, Burns was contacted by an independent record label (GoDIY Records) to contribute a track to a compilation CD highlighting Michigan artists. The Implants were added to GoDIY's roster and distribution of the Michigan CD sampler extended to 500 execs within the music industry. While working with Tim Keeler at GoDIY records, a suggestion was made to submit a track to an independent film. The Implants song 'Funky Monkey' is featured in an indie film called 'I Wish'. It is also on the CD soundtrack. The Implants had an album review (Generic Genius) from IAE Magazine recently as well as being featured in Skope Magazine, Origivation Magazine, and PensEyeView.com. An on air interview with internet's Black Sky Radio was also a highlight. The entire "Generic Genius" CD is now in rotation at Black Sky as well as the new 'Blindfold' EP. 'Blindfold' is the Implants' current release. It is a 5 song EP is available for purchase now. The 'Blindfold' EP can also be heard at facebook.com/the implants.
