Beat Dominator



Neil Case aka Beat Dominator (Bass Mekanik) started off in 1992, with what would become one of the most influential careers in the Miami Techno Bass movement. Remaining almost exclusively under the Pandisc name, Neil Case released a wide number of releases marketed since the very beginning as "Techno Bass" music, and had his versatile works infiltrate everything from the car sound system circles, to Raves, and everything in between.

The first release by Beat Dominator was called "Techno Bass", and was released in 1992 on Pandisc; featuring 14 tracks of sub sonic mayhem, that ranged in styles that reflected a wide influence of music from the artist. A single EP of the song "1-2-3-4-5-6 Bass" was also released this year, and included 3 different versions of the original, as well as the main song itself.

In 1993, Beat Dominator returned, this time with "Bass Station Zero ( Techno Bass II ), which was another full L.P., featuring 15 songs that continued the growing trend in what was considered in many circles to be "Intelligent Miami Bass", or Techno Bass. Also this year, Beat Dominator had his many versions of "1-2-3-4-5-6 Bass" released on Pandisc, its sub-label Street Beat, as well as Priority Records, Cutting Edge, Network Forty, Kaskata's, and Avex.

In 1994, Case returned right in time for Christmas, on the "Have a Very Bass Christmas" compilation on Streetbeat Records, with the songs "Rudolph Medley" with Bass Automator, as well as "Deck The Halls/We Three Kings" with The Overkill Kid. Soon after in 1995, we would see Beat Dominator return in full force with the album "Bassik Instinkt", as well as the single E.P. "2-4-6-8 Feel The Bass", which like his last single E.P., featured various versions of the theme. The songs "How do you say Bass?", as well as "Bass...Can you hear me?" were also released this year on the compilation "USAC Bass" on Pandisc, which also featured his works as Bass Mekanik, with the tracks "Bass Mekanik", and "Critical Level", as well as Bass Cube with James McCauley of Maggotron with the track "Ode To Billy Jive". This year, Case would also produce and release under his Bass Mekanik pseudonym, as well as Bass Cube, and Bass Tribe with Bass Automator, and Keith Rosenberg of the legendary duos Trip Theory, and Spacemen, on the Bass Patrol compilation on Cutting Edge Records.

Throughout the rest of the 90's and 2000's, Beat Dominator continued to primarily publish under Pandisc, having various single EP's and compilation releases, and one album in 1999 called "Hyper Techno Bass". Many of his hits from his previous albums were also featured on countless compilations on many labels like Virgin Records, Avex, and Edel Records out of Finland. In 2008, Neil Case founded his own label called "Bass Mekanik Records", and has since then published a wide array of music by artists like Billy E, DJ Droppin, and DJ Wuzisname. Case has also featured a lot of his new material, going under the alias "Flow", as well as his Bass Mekanik pseudonym. As of yet, the Beat Dominator project itself has not been revived, though with such an illustrious career in the 90's, influencing so many different scenes with one big sound, one can only hope that at some point soon we will see a brand new release by one of the true pioneers of Miami's Techno Bass scene.
