Martin Bisi [band]
Martin Bisi is an American producer and songwriter. He is known for recording important records by Sonic Youth, Swans, John Zorn, Material, Bill Laswell, Helmet, Unsane, Cop Shoot Cop, White Zombie, Boredoms, Angels of Light and Herbie Hancock's Grammy-winning song Rockit.

In 1979, Martin Bisi started BC Studio with Bill Laswell and Brian Eno in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, where he recorded many of the No Wave, punk bands, and hip-hop of the early 1980s including Lydia Lunch, Foetus, Live Skull, and Afrika Bambaata. In 1982 he recorded the instruments for Whitney Houston's first recorded appearance as a lead singer -the song "Memories" on Material's One Down LP.

In 2002 Bisi recorded The Dresden Dolls' critically acclaimed debut album, and in 2005, mixed the surprise break-out CD by Serena Maneesh of Norway.
Chandra Shukla (b. 1975) created XAMBUCA before performing a debut performance in Berkeley, CA on April 20, 1995 came up with the nonsensical moniker. He formed them from letters left over from a Scrabble game that spelled out what has come to be known as 'XAMBUCA'. It was this that prompted the need for a name and the beginnings of an ongoing collaborative project that was completely free of genre, form, context or musicality with a rotating arsenal of sonic guests. Though now in 2018, the lineup for XAMBUCA consists solely of Chandra Shukla (sound) and sometimes collaborations with Geo Lynx (video). XAMBUCA has performed internationally and continues to produce, record and perform live. The symbol of XAMBUCA is the 'x' that marks the spot appearing on every product and stemming from the likes of chromosomes to tuning forks and is a brand logo to be recognized , everywhere. One of those symbols that you've felt you've seen before but weren't quite sure where. Many derivative and copycat logos have emerged since its inception in 1995 either by mere coincidence or sheer plagiarism. XAMBUCA strives to give emphasis to its art both sonically and visually.
