Bio

TripThrottle originally began as Altered State. This dynamic duo got together in mid 2004 to re-record a couple of songs they had done a few years prior. This re-recording project gave birth to 20 plus songs of which 11 were selected and their debut album “Altered State” was born. Little did the band know, that 1 year after their release of “Altered State” on January 8th, 2005, they would have fans in 42 countries in places such as India, Australia, Israel, England and Peru, just to name a few. They have continually received rave reviews as a band that has set a new precedent for the Electronica Genre. Incorporating elements from Techno, Break Beat, IDM, EBM, Rock and Hard Core Dance, they have created a new sound for dance music fans.

TripThrottle's songs retain the familiarity of great bands such as TCM, Prodigy, and Orbital while at the same time bringing in melody and chord movement to create songs with backbone and integrity. They have been quickly picked up by promoters in major markets such as Toronto, Canada and Brooklyn, New York, as well as having their music selected for major motion picture usage. They have also received serious interest from major record labels in the USA and England. Fans from around the world are eagerly awaiting a world tour and as a result, the band now has street teams around the world.

The Components:

Shawn Mott, a.k.a., Trip, often brings the more aggressive element to TripThrottle. Having played guitar in numerous speed metal bands as well as a prominent but now defunct Hard Core band that was based out of Buffalo NY; he has extensive experience being on stage and gives fans an exciting live stage presence. This has proved to be an asset to the band. At live shows he has been known to jump off the stage, down into the dance pit, to tear it up with the fans.

Trip plays an Ibanez 7 string guitar retrofitted with a Roland GK2 midi pickup. The ability to play hardware synthesizers adds a unique element to TripThrottle's sound. On the production end Trip serves as the Mastering Engineer.

Trip’s musical influences: P.O.D., Prodigy, The Crystal Method, U2, Gaither Vocal Band, Infected Mushroom, Metallica, Leftfield, Lemon Jelly.

Trip is also an Applied Mathematics major at the University of Rochester - Current GPA: 3.87

Brian Robinson, a.k.a., B Rob, is a graduate of recording school and can often be found using his meticulous ear mixing TripThrottle songs to the stellar quality that can be found on TripThrottle albums. B Rob is also a piano player who comes from a family of “perfect pitch” musicians and music lovers. He has what Trip states as, “a sickening talent for melody and musical construction”. B Rob has concert band experience and is often called upon by local Rochester artists for his ability to help with song construction and overall sonic quality.

On the production end, B Rob serves as the Mix Engineer.

B Rob’s musical influences: U2, Orbital, Flaming Lips, Thomas Dolby, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Cracker, The Cranberries, George Winston.

B Rob is the afternoon drive time DJ on the highly rated 98.9 The Buzz radio station.
