DIVE Dive is the successful Industrial/EBM solo project of Dirk Ivens (Absolute Body Control/The Klink/Sonar).

Dirk Ivens
started in 1978 as guitar player and vocalist in the punk band Slaughterhouse and formed the New Wave project The Few just one year later.

Influenced by bands like Suicide and Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and the U.K electronic scene he appears from 1980 on under the name Absolute Body Control on several compilations. Their first single "Is There An Exit?" became quickly a local underground hit. Today this song is well known all over the world and became a dancefloorfiller at many underground parties. Dirk Ivens is probably best known as singer from the legendary Electro/industrial band The Klinik, who became besides Front 242 and The Neon Judgement one of the biggest names in the Belgian electronic/industrial scene, even today they are still an influence for many bands.

Then, in 1990, Dirk released his first solo album under the DIVE moniker. The music - very primitive, harsh and experimental - hits like 10000 volts, and was the start of many releases, with an evolving sound, since. With a minimum on equipment, he creates a maximum of power on stage! His sound has been copied by a lot of bands as he showed us, LESS IS MORE!
