Bev Stanton was born in the Bahamas and raised near Walt Disney World. She recorded ALP's first project, Sperm Warfare, in her basement, and it was released in Europe by Britain's TEQ Music. After TEQ folded, Stanton independently released over twenty CDs. Her early internet presence prompted Keyboard Magazine to feature her in a cover story on indie-music promotion. Stanton has gained recognition as a "remix master" (Washington Post) for deconstructing DC artists such as Lisa Moscatiello. Her solo material, which combines the quirkiness of Bjork, and the ennui of Moby, has won over a dozen Washington Area Music Awards (WAMMIES) in the Electronica category.
Her music has appeared in shows on the Discovery Channel, VH1, MTV and other cable television networks. Stanton is one of 24 female electronic artists and deejays profiled in Pink Noises: Women in Electronic Music and Sound (Tara Rodgers; Duke University Press, 2010), alongside DJ Rekha and Le Tigre. Arthur Loves Plastic also has eleven tracks featured in the Solocat Productions Los Angeles premiere of The Blue Room by David Hare. Ever embracing new technologies, Stanton's newest release is a 30-minute download EP influenced and created with iPhone applications.
