Electronica music project based out of Boston, Massachusetts, USA whose creativity has been felt in the industrial-ebm, big beat and aggrotech genres amongst others. mE is most often compared to a hybrid elements of The Prodigy, Combichrist and Aphex Twin. The unique style of mentalEscape combines aggressive and sparse double layered beats, gritty bass lines, atonal melodic synths and horror film influenced soundscapes. The showcase of variety of styles cannot be defined in one genre as the songs range from big beat-industrial to down tempo abstract trip-hop. In 2001, mentalEscape, under the pseudonym of Detrude, released the first single Industrial Whore which hit #1 on the Industrial Rock charts.) The single was remixed by GITM (Ghost In The Machine) and both mentalEscape and GITM enjoyed having the song be featured on a compilation album released by Raw42 Records called Definitive:Twisted (circa 2001). A review from A&R stated: "Industrial Whore (GITM Mix) by Detrude is a fantastic blast of industrial dance for the clubbers. Pounding, throbbing and sweat-inducing."
