It's one of the great unsolved mysteries in the history of the Top 100 DJs poll, the fact that BT continues to get voted in. It's not that he isn't valued as a DJ, it is quite simply because he is far more considered worldwide to be a producer than a DJ.
But due to his live appearances being so enormous, multi-layered and evocative, he continues to be a most memorable performer to many thousands of people.
His diary remains full each month as he plays across the States whilst hopping to Asia and Europe. In fact, you'll find him in London's Turnmills at the end of November.

Last year his mega project 'Binary Universe' was a CD/DVD extravaganza that allowed Brian Transeau to totally expand and consume a vast wealth of uber futuristic ideas. It was an "audio-visual-spiritual artform", a "proof of concept" that used "complex impulse responses" - and it was entirely unique.

The LA dwelling "producer, creator and architect" is the ultimate techno sourcerer. He's a world-renowned producer of several platinum selling albums, including many of his own, and numerous film scores. He is an advance-thinking technologist with a huge appetite for warping and twisting the tenuous confines of electronic music.

Lately, BT's been working on a digital sound and visual project called 'Sonik Architects'. This is BT's creation of his software company that will be encompass his own programming applications Break Tweaker and Stutter Edit. Get hold of these babies and you too could be one step closer to filling stadiums.
