Since he gained international fame in 2004 with his audacious Grey Album, Danger Mouse has accumulated a complex and intriguing body of work. The music he's helped create is at once powerfully distinctive and remarkably varied.
As always, he's staying busy. Danger Mouse's 2008 projects include new albums from the global phenomenon Gnarls Barkley, the trendsetting polymath Beck, the enigmatic serenader Martina Topley Bird, the sunny, cerebral UK pop outfit The Shortwave Set, and the rugged, passionate Akron-based rock band The Black Keys. The Black Keys chose Danger Mouse as their first "outside producer." Their partnership produced Attack & Release, the most intricate and intense record of the Keys' career to date. Danger Mouse collaborated with Beck on his complex, well-received LP Modern Guilt.
He is not a stereotypical producer – he’s a full collaborator. His projects feature his instrumental work, his compositional instincts and the full range of his aesthetic. Like the pop artists and filmmakers who inspired him, Danger Mouse is defined not by his skills, but by the choices he makes. His projects generate self-contained worlds, best explored in context.
