June 12, for transistor festival 2010
Lynn Standafer is the unassuming, mild-mannered alter-ego of the one-man sonic wrecking crew known as Enduser. Born as the bastard son of KRS-One, Skinny Puppy, and Photek, and raised on a steady diet of hip-hop and early jungle records, Enduser smashes through genre walls with alternating punches of industrial strength drum and bass and hip-hop flavored breakcore.
Recently he has finished an album with Bill Laswell and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh), this 'Blood of Heroes' project will be released on Ohm Resistance April 2010 and a new Enduser album will be out on Ad Noiseam March 2010.
