Juno Reactor was originally formed by Ben Watkins as an art project in 1990. 
Watkins wanted to create experimental music/non musical soundtracks that would work with installations, 
art pieces and film projects. Since then Juno Reactor has evolved to become a musical 
and performing act known for the cinematic fusion of electronic, orchestral and global music.
Watkins remains central to the project, along with his collaborations 

with a constantly changing ensemble of musicians from across the world. 
He also collaborated with composer Don Davis for the musical score of the film The Matrix.
In 1997 Juno Reactor's fourth album entitled "Bible of Dreams" was released. 

It had a much different sound than their previous albums, and moved away from the traditional dance beats
 by implementing more aggressive thematic styles and a more diverse range of influences such as world and tribal. 
Watkins collaborated with Amampondo, a traditional South African percussion act, on the single "Conga Fury".
All tracks made by Ben Watkins with the assistance of various collaborators 

(featuring among the others Mike Maguire and Natacha Atlas).



  1. i believe shango is their best since in my opinion there they perfected their 'tribal/techno/trance' formula, but this is also awesome

  2. I wouldn't disagree with you, Shango is great but this first attempt with their tribal-ethnic sound really got me into this album.Also Bible of Dreams was their first album that easily could be heard by anyone wasn't so much in electronic-trance music.It had so much variety in it.
