An electronic music project
formed in 1994
by Cisco Ferreira
and Colin McBean
, who had been working together since 1990. They also recorded as G Flame & Mr.G
. In 1998
McBean decided to concentrate on other projects like his label Phoenix G
, making The Advent a solo
project for Ferreira.
Nowadays The Advent is best known for its hard minimal techno releases on labels such as Tresor. The Past Forward EP on Conform is a good example of Cisco's pounding beats. Other labels The Advent has worked with include Kombination Research, Neue Heimat, Spiel-zeug Schallplatten and Tortured.
