Back Ted N-Ted

Ryan Breen (a.k.a. Back Ted N-Ted) creates spacey, upbeat electro-pop songs with introspective, poetic lyrics. If Moby had ever been truly "techno," he'd have probably made a record like Back Ted N-Ted's A Jet Made of Limos (Modern Art), which boasts everything from New Wave excursions with basic beats ("999 Buttons") to flashy, synth-rich Euro grooves ("The War Is Over"), with nary a sample in sight. While watching a guy concoct music behind computers doesn't sound too exciting, Breen's a programming guru who makes the machines do his bidding and manages to create full, rich compositions with minimal equipment. Call him the MacGyver of music.
