Bear Bazooka - Creator of many past side projects such as Piggy, Monsieur Lapin, Addictive Radio and TruckDog is a 30 year old producer in Brisbane Australia. His work is mainly experimental and covers every genre imaginable, due to boredom and frustration at writing music in one genre/tempo all the time. The Project arose out of frustration with composing dubstep, and wanting to create within a constrained 16 track environment. Simplistic minimal art at it's finest.
Bear started playing the keyboard in 1997 when he was given an organ for christmas. In 2003 he was given a double keyboard organ with small synthish capabilities. This was when he started experimenting with sound creation.
He dug into electronic music homebrew production in 2003 upon the purchase of music2000 for his PS1. He released an album by hand to friends under the alias "Piggy", and gave out special copies to his close friends.
In 2005 his style got harder, and he collaborated with Mz Pepa on various hardstyle recordings. During those sessions a few rare tunes were born. Once again he compiled a disc under the alias as "monsieur lapin" or Mister Rabbit.
After this he decided his music was becoming heart attack material, so he backed off production a little. Early 2006 he started releasing hardstyle recordings on mp3.com.au (now obsolete) in the format of a "Digital vinyl", with an A and B side format under the alias of "TruckDog". He shot straight to #1 in the experimental hardstyle charts, and remained in the top 10 until the site closed in mid 2012.
After the final release in mid 2007, he backed off making music for a while, feeling within himself it was becoming too dark for his own tastes when heard in retrospect. During this time he discovered artists such as deadmau5, stimming, eric prydz, and the hoxton whores and fell in love with house music all over again.
He came out of hiding in 2011 with his first release under the Addictive Radio alias, "Mushmouth central" but was not satisfied with the overall production quality. He released a few more projects under the Addictive Radio alias and decided it was time to quit music altogether in November 2011, after Lexington was sold. (he then later wrote a tune about her. she's a horse)
This didn't last long, because he started writing demos in December 2011, when he rediscovered Nanostudio on his iPod touch. Bear liked the idea of only having so much sandbox to play in, and started bending the software to do what he wanted to achieve.
In January of 2012, Bear Bazooka was born, and officially started releasing demos... Eventually he bought an iPad and he started creating more intricately chained experiments..
