About Stephen Mallinder
Best known as a founding member of industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire, British musician, vocalist, journalist, and educator Stephen Mallinder has participated in over a dozen other projects during his multi-decade career, spanning genres such as post-punk, acid house, and electro. Cabaret Voltaire formed in 1973, and Mallinder added a punk edge to the group's visionary electronic experiments as their vocalist and bass guitarist. He released his debut solo album, Pow-Wow, in 1982, as CV shifted to a more commercial dance sound, scoring several club hits. Mallinder participated in projects with members of Ministry and Soft Cell before his main group shifted to an instrumental techno/house sound during the early '90s. After quitting CV, Mallinder launched his own label and formed additional projects such as the analog electro trio Wrangler. He continued mixing post-punk and acid house on his solo efforts Um Dada (2019) and Tick Tick Tick (2022).
