The Manhattan Project is a forward thinking electronic duo that uses technology from the past and present to create music of the future. Analogue/Digital, Organic/Electronic. Armed with an arsenal of keyboards, synths, electronic and acoustic percussion. This live electronic duo plays what has been called "intelligent dance music". Drawing influences from dance hall, house, dub, drum n bass, techno and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings sophistication to the dance floor with their original compositions, high energy beats and mind melting textures. Live visuals by NGB create a multimedia experience for the mind, body and soul.
Their Debut EP "Atomic Bomb Party Vol. 1" was released in late November 2009 as a free download to great reviews! The Manhattan Project features Shawn Drogan on drums and electronics, and Charlie Lindner on keyboards and synths.
In the last 9 months, the duo has played consistently to large crowds at dance clubs and live music venues, collaborated with top regional DJ's and MC's, played a live set twice on the top alternative radio station in Rochester, NY WBER and have gained more than 1200 loyal fans on facebook. Plans for a national tour and full length album are now in the works.
