MTD are a group of people on a musical journey, which might take them from old school hip hop to nu-electro, rap to R&B but they combine their creative talents to create a futuristic vision of music, what they refer to as 'Future Funk'.  Hear about them in 30 Seconds...

How long have you been making music?
Since I was 12, so quite a while now

What inspired your latest album?
I have always been in love with old school electro and hip hop, so we set out to write our own interpretation of the classics

What process do you go through to create your music?
I always write the drums or a bass line first with a great groove and then this is sent over to the writers / vocalists.

How would you describe your sound?
Old school techniques with modern technology we love that old sound from old drum machines but put into the modern framework of the new technology

What would your dream collaboration be?
Arthur Baker or Trevor Horn producing Chaka Khan on vocals, Vince Clarke programming with Mike Lindup on keyboards, Nick Beggs on bass and Joe Satriani on guitars.

Where can we catch you performing next?
Street sounds 30th anniversary November 2012.
