"Mawn Reproduction" sampler. Full album at the Cracknation Store and itunes.

After launching in 1997 with “Mutants of Sound” DJ? Acucrack became a favorite in the underground electronic circuit, securing great reviews and support from CMJ and touring with such artists as Curve, Cubanate and Lords of Acid.

Their 2000 follow-up “Sorted” featured the cult-fave So To Speak with Curve’s
Toni Halliday, which spawned an award-winning video, one of the first music videos ever to be filmed with HDTV cameras. Several video game soundtrack slots followed (Mech Assault, Amped, Tiger Woods XBOX Golf, Project Gotham Racing 2). Their ultimate balance of jungle, breakbeat, techno and ambient was realized with 2002 release, “The Dope King.”

In 2004, Acucrack supported KMFDM on their 20th Anniversary Tour.
In August 2005, they released a new album, “Killing Mobius”, and a live DVD. In 2006, they toured with Front Line Assembly for their Artificial Soldier tour. In 2007 they released “Humanoids From the Deep” and toured the country in two phases with alter-egos Acumen Nation.

Over the course of their career, Acucrack has performed with several electronic music luminaries, opening for the likes of Dieselboy, Goldie, Ed Rush and Optical, The Roots,
Hive, Bad Company, C-tek, Photek, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and more.
Their unique blend of dark drum n’ bass, breakbeat, and techno delivered via a Live PA performance complete with vocals and visuals is a complex audio assault and an interactive treat for the audience.

2011 found Acucrack back on tour with Frontline Assembly on their Improvised Electronic Device North American tour, but this time with Novak performing as a solo act. Recent placements on HBO’s “True Blood” and two videogame scores for Vogster Entertainment (“Unbound Saga” and “Crimecraft: Bleedout) kept Acucrack busy, but the project was winding down for the most part.

In 2012, the shocking passing of Jamie Duffy seemed to shut the project down, as Novak and the rest of the Cracknation family took the rest of the year to mourn, reflect, and eventually launch the Cold Waves memorial concert. However, over the past 5 years Novak had been building and experimenting with a handful of tracks in between albums and tours with new band CZAR, a metal trio with Cracknation members Dan Brill and Brian Elza. In the spring 0f 2013, Novak began completing what would become The Mawn Reproduction, the first Acucrack album in 6 years. With additional programming and mixing from Sean Payne (Cyanotic) the album received the final touches it needed.
