Biography

Subtronic was created in 2003 and is based out of Chicago. The group created a strong presence in the underground Chicago rave and club scene by fusing live and electronic music. We were formerly an instrumental group composed of three members but in December of 2006 we added the lovely & talented new vocalist, Mishel Beebe (http://myspace.com/mishelbeebe) who was formerly with the band Ginger Snapped and has worked with various other groups such as Rev, Fetish 11, Evil Twin, Blow Up Dollz & more. All Subtronic members come from over 10 years of diverse musical backgrounds resulting in our unique sound.

The mission of Subtronic is to create mind-expanding grooves that move the body as well without completely eliminating the human factor. We don't like classifications in music and feel it puts boundaries on the sound-creating process of our inner minds. We have one full-release album (Contact) available through www.blacklight.com and are in the process of finishing up our latest album with our new vocalist.

We will be doing some heavy promoting in 2007 and are currently looking for events, venues, and other similar groups to do shows with so please feel free to contact us for any collaborations or events coming up. We were formerly with Thermal Recordings in CA but are now in search of a new appropriate label to work with as well. We hope you enjoy the music of Subtronic!

Lyrics

Intrinsic One

Written By: Mishel Beebe

I know you like it when you think that you can do it
I know you like it when you think you're in control
I'd like to see you in a new position
I'd like to test just what it is you know

Don't you want the secret meaning
Or do you want your simple life
You can be so damn demeaning
Your words cut me like a knife

I know you really think you're in the movies
I know you think you are a super star
I think we see eye to eye on one thing
We really like to take it all too far

Don't you want the secret meaning
Or do you want your simple life
Uou can be so damn demeaning
Your words cut me like a knife

So easy just to sit back there and judge me
You with your dirty little mind
I think I'd like to loosen up your hinges
Then you could really open up your eyes

Don't you want the secret meaning
or do you want your simple life
you can be so damn demeaning
your words cut me like a knife

Take me
In your time machine
Show me
Just what you've seen
Take me
In the closet
Then please
Help me out

I know it's true all I wanted was you.... It' true
But you take what you want and you want some more
You take what you want then you want some more
You take what you've got oh but you want some more
You take what you've got and you want it all

Can't you see
I've got it bad for you
And I don't know
What I should do
Can't you see
How good it could be
If you didn't have
Your fangs in me

I know it's true all I wanted was you.... It' true
But you take what you want and you want some more
You take what you want then you want some more
You take what you've got oh but you want some more
You take what you've got and you want it all

Take me
In your time machine
Show me
Just what you mean
Take me
In the closet
Girl I don't mean to shout

I know it's true all I wanted was you.... It' true
But you take what you want and you want some more
You take what you want then you want some more
You take what you've got oh but you want some more
You take what you've got and you want it all

Set List

Our sets are about 45 minutes to an hour long and we usually have about 10 - 12 songs in a set. We play them in a continuous style such as a DJ to create more of a hypnotic experience. We can also do extended sets if needed as a group or DJ.
