It appears the artist was somewhat of fan and then some having composed an entire album that was titled "Pure Energon".
According to the fan site Prince.org, the album is in-fact a concept album dedicated to the Transformers series that was recorded with the group, Information Society. A Minneapolis based group who played industrial music, techno, and funk styled music, if that gives us any idea of what the music might have sounded like.
