Daniel Myer (Haujobb) is back once
again with Architect and what an album
it is. Gone is the furious drum‘n’bass
which comprised the debut "Galactic
Supermarket". Myer is now experimenting
with electro; re-defining the genre
as he goes along while simultaneously
taking it to the next level. "Anger
Management" kicks it all off
and is quite pleasurable. "Belgian
Connection" follows it up packing
much authority. Throughout the whole
of "I Went out Shopping…"
there is an underlying current of
darkness, intensity, alienation and
profound sadness. Smooth beats, amazing
synthesis and cold, sterile atmospheres…
albums such as this are to be savored.
Nine of these tracks have been heard
already via the Myer list and differ
very little except that they are no
longer inferior grade MP3:s. Of the
other four previously unreleased pieces,
one is a twisted take on the classical
piece "Moonlight Sonata"
while another is a remixed version
of the track "Unlike". I
cannot stress enough how impressed
I am with "Moonshine (live version)".
