This is how it all began.
Tim Tyran had a vision of creating a kind of synthpop superhero - all he needed was a name to reflect the harder edge of his sound, as he has a strong love for hip hop beats and driving industrial music. Paying homage to one of his most favorite bands of all-time; OMD, the name "Bunker Soldier" came to mind. This is a song title from an early OMD track, a most obscure track. And just like that, Bunker Soldier, the Techno Warrior, was born in a cold, dark warehouse in downtown Dallas in 1994. That's where Tim emersed himself in a music rehearsal room with no windows. He started on a twisted path of synthesizer mayhem by combining every genre under the sun to one hard beat after another. He then became an active member of the blossoming Texas synthpop scene, hooking up with DJ X just to mix things up with his sound. He never strays far from his synthpop roots on "Dilemma." Even to this day in his writing, melody is 'king' in all his music. Heavy beats play a close second.
After hooking up with producer Steve Paul of Channel 69, he released his first cd in 1996 entitled "Quite a Dilemma." This cd was one of the first to blend hip hop and techno. Industrial tones can also be found throughout the tracks at Tim's constant pushing. The production on this cd is most impressive, super tight and technically flawless. The single "Infection" hit number 1 for 4 weeks at the mighty WCOT in Utica, NY, a college radio station. This was an incredible feat and is Tim's proudest musical moment! It also has been used as the background music for KTCK The Ticket's Dallas Cowboys Pregame Show in Dallas. "Infection" is one of Bunker Soldier's best songs and most requested to this date. Some people have criticized the all-over-the-place style of "Dilemma." He feels it was ahead of its time. Look at Outkast today, even N.E.R.D. Try to find the common thread in every song. There was a simple formula used, it's no secret. This cd shows how Bunker Soldier can assemble a team of musicians to pull off one hell-of-a-ride musical journey. One you will want to take over and over.
Look for Bunker's new release "Triple Threat" released in early 2004. Bunker Soldier is celebrating 10 years of releasing true underground, independent electronic dance music. We invite you to see the darker side of Bunker Soldier at www.cdbaby.com/bunkersoldier where his second cd "Innuendo" can be found. "Innuendo" is an underground industrial audio theme park. It contains no hip hop. Just hypnotic grooves and lyrical angst. "Innuendo" was written and completely recorded in Bunker's home studio as part therapy from a devasting breakup from his relationship with his ex-fiancee. This effort, without any studio wizardry, shows Bunker's true musical vision and talents.
