Sundaze 1527

Hello, so the Tour De France started with a surprise win at the fast speed ever recorded for a timetrial-prologue, 55.4 km by Rohan Dennis, it sees him wearing the yellow jersey. He might have profited from worsening conditions, although superficially the same, analyses of the results show towards the end rising times with at least 20 seconds. Tony Martin who had given everything and stranded at 5 seconds complained that the heat got to him.

Today one of the many projects of Daniel Myer, there are not many who have so many different projects with such variety and yet a surprisingly high quality. Architect is one of the projects which explores electronic landscapes. Architect succeeded in combining electronic sounds with ambient and experimental sounds. Fans of Haujobb's ambient-side should have no problem finding their way here, as well as fanatics of the so-called clicks'n'-cut genre.   .... N'joy

Architect is a unique hybrid of idm, electronica and smooth ambient soundscapes inexhaustibly explored by german mastermind daniel myer. in a career spanning over fifteen years daniel has been connected to but never belonged to a host of scenes and styles. architect was created in 1998 and has since proven his mettle on a multitude of releases and on countless acclaimed concerts world-wide. in 2010 alan wilder (recoil) discovered architect's brilliance, which led to daniel performing as a support act for recoil on several acclaimed shows in europe and the united states. architects most pronounced quality is the accomplished combination of powerful grooves and atmospheric soundscapes resulting in music that is suitable for both listening and dancing. architect's sixth full length album 'mine' constitutes an appreciable shift in direction compared to his previous works by adding compositional and instrumental innovations brand new to this project. supported by well-respected artists like ben lukas boysen a.k.a. hecq, guitarist and cellist felix gerlach, dejan samardzic (dsx), legendary producer, engineer and remixer paul kendall, canadian musician and sound designer comaduster and hungarian vocalist emese arvai-illes (black nail cabaret), architect marches to no one’s beat but his own, expanding ambitious electronica with comprehensive down-tempo song structures. moderate yet decisive beats and precise keyboard and string arrangements build the foundation for emese's exceptional voice transmitting suspense, depth and sinister beauty with perfectly fitting lyrics. depending on how and when you listen, this atmospheric release can fill you with menace and sadness, or send you into a deep reverie. uncompromising, muscular and powerful, the music of 'mine' is also full of subtle touches and a supple sense of rhythm

For years Architect has made a name for himself in the modern electronic music scene but the most outstanding of daniel myer's (countless) projects is architect. three years after lower lip interface hymen records presents the long awaited fifth album: Consume Adapt Create.

The difference between the true creative artist and the impersonator is the way they deal with influences. myer's inspirations range from drum and bass wizards enduser and current value up to breakcore warlords venetian snares and otto von schirach - but it is unmistakably architect you hear in every note of each track. consume adapt create: a unique blend of atmospheric idm, cinematic samples, powerfully distorted sequences, ramming electro grooves, razor-sharp breakbeats, and haunting ambiance. music to move the dancefloor while still creating enough depth and texture for heavy listening through your headphones. once again, d.myer demonstrates astounding compositions. well-placed sounds and complex arrangements of synthetic noise. as heard on this record: "i see things..." - listen up and see for yourself!

Brilliant debut album of Daniel Myer`s "intelligent" alter ego. Architect was chosen as a moniker for tracks that initially were made for Haujobb but didn`t meet it`s format. "Galactic Supermarket" makes very special feeling. It`s really galactic, calm and delicate. No obvious idm/electro/d`n`b structures, no DSP noises and other sad attributes of today high-tech electronica which appear on next albums of Architect. Pure experimentalism and successful search of new forms. Reasoning internal dynamic of music, moving and spinning from dot to universe, forces to imagine that "Galactic Supermarket" is a kit of cosmic caskets created by a scientist or even demiurge. Every casket, driven by springs, slowly opens and shows it`s marvel secrets to an attentive listener.

"The Analysis of Noise Trading" is a darker continuation from 2004's "I Went Out Shopping..." with added focus on the atmospheres and shock of shocks, sampled vocals from various sources which may or may not be one of the three members of the band. Hecq supplies an interesting reconstruction of the first track of the album, "St. Vodka". The cooperation between Hecq and Architect (who co-writes one of the songs on Hecq's stunning new album "Bad Karma") is one which will surely and rightly surpass the NEWT project should an actual album emerge.

It is obvious that the work here was not meant to sound radically different from the previous album and if it is, as I suspect, the second serial installment of a double album then it is off the charts. Daniel Myer has somehow, once more, upped his game by virtue of his own creative prowess. The man  really ought to get some serious endorsements from the companies who have their samplers used by him. This is beyond collage or merely accenting programmed monotony; Architect demonstrate their own unique synthetic architectural abilities, seamlessly integrating both the complex and the abstract. I am awed by it's powerful majesty.

Lower Lip Interface is a bizarre left hand turn into uncharted waters. The kind of waters which look placid on the surface but run silent and deep with one hell of an undertow driving things along. The puppet master with his strings bunched up in a Gordian knot is another way to look at it; surprisingly, these tracks could work on a dance floor... for epileptics... with strobes epoxied to their limbs trying to communicate in semaphore.

He discovered how to use his lower lip interface. bits and pieces of information reached hymen records' office, packets of sound were transferred via internet within hours - a race against time, speed-frame technology and freeze-frame reality. but we made it and here's the final result. 'lower lip interface' - an orgy of synth-wizardry, complex rhythms and manipulated vocals. forcing beats meet distorted sequences, overlayed with a stunning usage of effects, interrupting breaks and acoustic
instrumentation. economically used sampling and distraction add up the tracks, a style architect is known for since the beginning. This is state-of-the-art electronic sound inseminated with sweat, sex and aspiration, showing myer's ability to push a few knobs and get a highly concentrated extract of sweat, pain and lust. This album proves daniel myer as a sixty-minute man who knows how to use all of his' tools. Enjoy these ten climaxes plus the three phantastic remixes.
