Since exploding on to the scene in 2010, The Manhattan Project has become one of the fastest growing live electronic duos in the northeast. Selling out shows regionally, and with bands like Lotus, Conspirator and BioDiesel, they've gained national attention as a band on the rise. Drawing influences from house, dub, drum n bass, techno and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings sophistication to the dance floor with their original compositions, high energy beats and mind melting textures. Armed with an arsenal of keyboards, synths, electronic and acoustic percussion, they seamlessly merge analogue and digital sounds to create a sonic boomtronic style all their own. Live visuals by NGB and epic light shows bring the concert experience to a new level, and have earned them the reputation of a must-see live band.

“The Manhattan Project: I recently saw a bumper sticker that read "Drum Machines Have No Soul - Coalition for the Rehumanization of Music." Now, without getting into a big discussion on the history of electronic music, the technological importance of the New York City Blackout, and all the class politics this simple statement entails, I'd like to disagree. And I think The Manhattan Project would too. This live electronic duo has chosen to learn from their robotic counterparts rather than dismiss them. In fact, the Project's main goal seems to be making human music more robotic. Armed with an arsenal of percussion and synthesizers, they march the fine line between analog and digital. The group seems to understand and insist that despite their self-awareness, musicians are still just cogs in the machine. ”
