Modulate is the hard industrial project of DJ Geoff Lee. Geoff is one of the resident DJ’s at alternative/industrial superclub The Wendyhouse in Leeds on the Mutate industrial/hard dance floor. Their debut Skullfuck EP went crashing straight into the German DAC alternative charts reaching number 6 and number 3 in the Greek Alternative Chart giving the band a worldwide club hit that was described as “the industrial scene’s club hit of the year” in ReGen magazine
The band spent several months on the road in 2007 playing over 50 dates in 8 countries supporting VNV Nation around Europe and Combichrist around America. The front half of 2008 saw Geoff in the studio completing the debut album, Detonation, followed by a UK tour in May. Detonation was released worldwide on the 23rd Sept 2008 winning rave reviews and spent nearly two months in the Top 10 of the DAC alternative chart in Germany and the Top 20 of the Dutch DUC chart.
