New Mind e` il progetto del musicista elettronico britannico Jonathan Sharp (che non sembra essere imparentato con il Jonah Sharp degli Spacetime Continuum). I quattro brani dell'EP Body Politics (Sadisque, 1991), in particolare White Star Falling, l'album Fractured (Machinery, 1993), e in particolare gli arrangiamenti caotici e maniacali di Like Love e Enviro 2, e l'apocalittica Life in Hell, fecero intuire che dietro lo pseudonimo si celava un progetto piu` ambizioso delle solite truffe techno o ambientali. Il suo singolo Guilt spopolo` in discoteca. New Mind venne alla ribalta con il singolo Touch, tratto a sua volta dal suo secondo album, Zero To The Bone (Cyber-tec, 1995), sul quale Sharp sperimenta con i campionamenti (3angel, Turn to Stone) e sul quale figura una delle sue tracce piu` avvincenti (Left To Fade).

Su Forge (Offbeat, 1997 - 21st Circuitry, 1997) il suo stile alterna con naturalezza ballata industriale (Providence), musica ambientale (LD 100), aggro (Forge) e diverse varianti di techno (Furnace, Stone Hate Steel, e Purify). Forse un po' troppo generico, ma sempre dignitoso. L'unico elemento che stona un po' e` il canto, la cui ferocia non sembra giustificata dalle cadenze briose e dalle armonie leggere.

Sharp also briefly played in Cyber-Tec Projekt with Front 242's Jean-Luc DeMeyer .

Hyperdex-One-Sect is a collaboration between Sharp and Sevren Ni-Arb of X Marks The Pedwalk. Mind, on the EP Metachrome (21st Circuitry, 1998), couples dark backdrops and catchy melodies. Les Amants, on the same EP, is upbeat bouncing frantic techno with female and male vocals and an epic refrain.

Bio-Tek is Sharp's techno project. A God Ignored Is A Demon Born (Zoth Ommog, 1996) includes brutal tracks like Die-Sect, Human Weapon, Ashes. Darkness My Name Is (Zoth Ommog, 1997) is a blasphemous concept on religion and murder (Communion, Hate Like A Fire, Veronika Voss, Murderworld, City of Steel, Thorns). Punishment For Decadence (Doppler Effect, 1999) is a more sophisticated work (Leviathan).

Furnace (Offbeat, 1997) marks the return of New Mind.

On Deepnet (Offbeat, 1998) New Mind returns to the chaotic style of Zero To The Bone (We Can Be Together, Left to Fade).

Hexedene's Choking On Lilies (Cargo, 1998) is a far more commercial (female-fronted) project. Turn is driving and catchy metal-techno. Breathe, Damage, Close My Eyes offer more variations on that panzer attack.

Sharp is also active under the names Tryophex14 and Psionic.

Takshaka make their debut with the six-track EP 20 Minutes Into the Future (Gun Music, 1999)
