Listing all of Daniel Meteos musical involvements might take a few more pages than we can spare Ð although Peruments marks his debut solo release, this shy and retiring nocturnal creature has already graced a surprising number of records under a variety of guises, keeping his finger in plenty of delicious musical pies in pursuit of that elusive moment of aural bliss.
Above and beyond championing Berlins local electronic music scene, Meteo has added his spin to the likes of Apparat, Orb, DNTEL, Masha Qrella as a remixer, runs his own experimental dub label Meteosound (closely intertwined with fellow friends/office buddies Shitkatapult), shakes up clubs around the world with his delectable DJ sets and drives the beats of the dub/hip-hop/electronica duo Bus (on Poles ~scape label).
"Peruments is far more playful than my other recordings because there was no one else to provide a tidying touch", Daniel explains - and this ambitious tightrope walk between disintegration and cohesion, freestyle and structure, hookline and ambient crackles also finds a visual equivalent in the albums artwork. "Exactly one day after finishing the tracks my Powerbook monitor broke down for good - and left me with the current cover image. I guess that really says it all - everything around me is in a state of dissolution, and once again I just about manage to slip out."
A great escape - and promising departure to further weird and wonderful musical shores. meteo 019 therefore, can be considered as an important element of meteosounds intuitive idea of how dub productions should sound like. according to what the label made until now: exploring different territories like the dub-electronica of meteo/thiel or fenins productions, reaching the electric hip-hop of the syberian duo echo depth finders, passing through ferdinand fehlers and his innovative soul city music. watch this sound!
