Dan Beck was born in the suburbs of Copenhagen in the early seventies. He grew up with pop music in all sorts of styles and especially Depeche Mode made a great impact and is, until this day, still one of his favorites. In late 1984 he first meet his now longtime friend Ole Ulrich Jensen from Vaylon & Reliant and they soon found out, that they shared the same passion for- and taste in music (The rest is history)

After 10 years in Vaylon with a myriad of good moments and experiences, Dan Beck felt an urge to create something on his own. The idea of working with various singers and musicians, soon came to life and then Second Complex was born.



Defining their musical sound as Nordic Noir, new ground is explored using classic electronic sounds. With an intentional and deliberate blending of the old with the new a melancholic hopefulness is created from the dark seasons of life in Scandinavia.

Out of this is formed We The North.



Although Impakt! was formed in 2010, the foundations for the band were laid as early as 1985 when schoolmates Sam and Vince discovered they shared an interest for electronic and experimental industrial music. Sam had a band at that moment with PW on drums and Vince joined in for a while. As months passed it became clear that the time nor the place was not right for the three of them. Vince moved on to form an all electronic act “Advanced Art” while Sam and PW continued to work together with more traditional instruments. Their band evolved and became “Ruby Tuesday”, mixing influences from both Irish and rock music. In 1993 Vince and PW got back together for a few years when “Advanced Art” needed an extra percussionist for live shows. PW became an essential part of “Advanced Art” playing live and even on their last release “Force”. After “Advanced Art” split in 1995 their ways parted for the second time. Sam and PW kept on playing together all these years in different bands, some of them being quite successful in Finland. Vince on the other hand decided to retire from the scene and gave up writing music. In 2010 PW contacted Vince after over 10 years and came up with an idea of a new band. He had a name in mind and suggested they should ask Sam to join in too. They decided to give it a go and started to write some songs together.
