architect is a hybrid of minimalistic drum'n bass and smooth ambient soundscapes explored by the electronic mastermind daniel meyer.

like a architect who built up his constructions in different layers and channels, also daniel is working with this method by using only sampling tools. he's constructing abstract sonic buildings which seems to be peculiar transparent - like concrete frames without any surfaces in a pleasant familiarity. the cold polyrhythmic drumcodes are bet into a melted ambience of safety and grace. it's the warm timbre of this ambient drum'n bass recording which creates it's own unique sonic profile.

each track on this album was recorded separately in very concentrated periods of creativity and collected since the last 3 years. architect's galactic supermarket is surly a perfect soundtrack for observing the space during the night...

daniel meyer's musical activities begun about 7 years ago with the electro-industrial project haujobb. since the last years daniel became addicted to drum 'n bass, which opened him new views of sonic expressions. this unavoidable important influence allowed him to extend his perception of electronic music to create new dimensions.

daniel started several new projects to present his different faces. together with dejan samardcic he's very active with the project dot's and dashes (on funktion & form, rtd) and haujobb. the project cleen is a collaboration with thorsten meier, n.e.w.t (on flatline records) is created with andreas meyer (forma tadre) and the other projects architect, mayr, s'apex are soloprojects of daniel. although there is always a unique common point of all his projects, each of them explores it's own imaginary universe in it's strongest way.

groove, oktober/november 1998

als ich dieses album zum ersten mal in den cd-player schob, hatte ich dem beiliegenden infozettel noch keinerlei beachtung geschenkt. die musik, die ich da hörte, war drum`n bass und eigentlich doch nicht. ihr futuristischer habitus war nicht von der art, die sich leicht ergründen läßt. als einzige referenz kam mir spontan daniel myer in den sinn, der ja erst kürzlich als s`apex ein album veröffentlicht hat, das man gar nicht genug würdigen kann. tja, ihr ahnt es bestimmt schon, architect ist ein weiteres pseudonym dieses derzeit ein unglaubliches arbeitstempo vorlegenden bielefelders. im "galactic supermarket" gibt es keine leichte kost. die tracks verlangen die volle aufmerksamkeit des zuhörers, ansonsten bleibt man sich gegenseitig mehr als fremd. als architect treibt myer die kunst des weglassens auf die spitze, die scheinbar fehlenden parts warten darauf, in der imagination hinzugefügt zu werden. in manchen momenten ist das gar nicht mal allzu weit von richie hawtins "concept"-serie entfernt. "galactic supermarket" setzt daniel myer endgültig als einen der momentan mutigsten, interessantesten und längst auch stilsichersten musiker auf die landkarte.

daniel myer, known to die-hard fans of the darker side of underground electronic dance music as the force behind haujobb, cleen, n.e.w.t., among others, offers this solo project through hymen, the new sublabel of the germany label ant-zen. while ant-zen is known mostly for their harsh tech-noise releases, this release heads even further into the territory that recent work from meyer has gone, much to the dismay of industrial purists. but for fans of progressive music, meyer is a godsend to the genre. by infusing it with intelligent and futuristic rhythms and minimal song structures, meyer has shown these purists that you can still make brilliant, dark electronic music without relying on formula. with sparce breakbeats and spacious melodies, galactic supermarket avoids cliches from both the post-industrial and techno genres from which meyer draws from more sucessfully that most releases of late. once again, a brilliant showing from a sorely underrated musician.


zillo, 11/98

haujobb dürfte den freunden elektronischer musik hoffentlich noch ein begriff sein. daniel meier, einer der beiden köpfe dieser ausnahme-band, ist für die musikalische gestaltung von "galactic supermarket" verantwortlich. dabei vermengt er geschickt drum`n bass-elemente mit düsteren flächensounds zu einem hypnotischen klangcocktail. architect macht es seinen hörern zwar nicht immer einfach, seonen kompositionen zu folgen, dafür wird die geduld des konsumenten mit einem interessanten album belohnt.


orkus, november 1998

nachdem schon die debut-cd "galactic supermarket" mit ihrer mischung aus minimalistischen drum`n bass-rhythmen und feinen ambientflächen bestechen konnte, gibt es daniel "haujobb" myers neuestes nebenprojekt nun auch auf vinyl. bereits vor der cd her bekannte tracks werden noch durch drei neue, überzeugende stücke ergänzt, die das zum midprice angebotene vinylscheibchen auch für den besitzer der cd interessant machen. für architect-fans genauso zu empfehlen wie für breakbeat-süchtige djs und vinylfetischisten. gelungen.


black, herbst 1998

an der ersten cd von hymen bin ich ja nicht ganz unschuldig und ich freue mir fast ein loch in den bauch, das daniel meier mit architect sein wohl schon achtes musikalisches projekt am start hat (neben haujobb, cleen, dots and dashes, myer, s`aphex, newt und r:a). architect ist im gegensatz zu den eher tanzbaren drum`n bass projekten mehr kopflastig und hier tauchen auch wieder die haujobb-typischen flächensounds auf, die bei zum beispiel dots and dashes völlig fehlen. man könnte die warmen soundexplorationen aus schwer nachvollziehbaren sequenzerprogrammierungen, trockenen beats und futuristischer atmosphäre, welche mit polyrhythmischen drumcodes verspleißt wurden, auch als ambient drum`n bass bezeichnen, aber dieses album ist einfach nur visionär und richtungsweisend! kurze sprachsamples steigern den unterhaltungswert bzw. lockern auf und bei "mechanism" blitzt sogar kurz ein funkiges gitarrensample auf, was meiner meinung nach von inxs`s "i need you tonight" oder vielleicht doch von prince stammt...? musikalisch kann man vergleiche zu den letzten haujobb-arbeiten ziehen und ich stifte jeden abend eine kerze, auf das und das genie daniel meier nur lang noch erhalten bleibt. die cd ist sehr mininal-transparent gestaltet und enthält 11 tracks, die lp (wie immer nur echt mit briefmarke) birgt 3 tracks der cd und 3 neue titel, die denen der cd in nichts nachstehen. beeindruckend, auf allerhöchstem niveau und wirkling innovativ!


bodystyler, novemberg/dezember 1998

wahrscheinlich werde ich für diese ewigen hinweise gesteinigt: aber architect ist daniel myer von haujobb (übrigens beste deutsche electroband). dieser hat sich mittlerweile aber im unendlichen kosmos des drum`n bass eingefunden und fühlt sich dort auch pudelwohl, wie seine vielfältigen projekte beweisen (dots ans dashes, myer). die einzige parallele zwischen haujobb und architect liegt im elektronisch unterkühlten sound. ansonsten präsentiert uns der künstler minimalen drum`n bass mit eher ruhigem und düsterem einschlag. für mich wesentlich besser zu konsumieren als die übliche drum`n bass-hektik. besonders "ahead" ist für die entspannte athmosphäre ein gelungenes beispiel. hinzuweisen gilt es außerdem auf das spartanisch schlichte (grünes plastikbooklet) aber schöne artwork. fazit: eine angenehme verbindung zwischen newt und dots and dashes.


equinoxe ausgabe 9/99

architect ist ein soloprojekt des haujobb-mitglieds daniel myer, der seine finger außerdem auch noch in einigen anderen side-projects hat. sein neues album "galactic supermarket" entstand in den letzten drei jahren, was auf ein sehr intensives arbeiten schließen läßt und tatsächlich hört man dem album eine gewisse solidität an. kosmische soundscapes und verspielte drum`n`bass-passagen dominieren das gesamte release und hinterlassen einen harmonischen eindruck. so ist es um so erstaunlicher, daß bei dieser mischung der sound dennoch minimalistisch anmutet und an avantgarde-techno erinnert. die filigranen strukturen und ambientsphären werden hier und da von deftigen beats aufgemischt und erfrischend experimentelle elemente runden das gesamtbild ab. einziger wermutstropfen ist, daß daniel myer darauf achten sollte, nicht in allzu belanglose crossovergefilde abzudriften (siehe album-titel).


n-fabrik

architect. galactic supermarket. cd
having been a fan of haujobb for the past 4.5 years has allowed me to see a truly talented 'industrial' band progress fluidly into an even more phenomenal ambient - experimental dance outfit. so when i had heard that one of its members was releasing some experimental drum'n'bass under the guise of architect, i was quick to get my copy, once it finally became available in the states. the album starts off with a very short tune which sounds like the more recent haujobb material, driven by percussion that would make any serious autechre fan happy. the next track begins much along the same vein, which initially led me to wonder when the supposed drum'n'bass would kick in. not that i didn't enjoy what i was hearing, mind you, i was just expecting something different. but after 2 minutes into the track, my fears disappeared. daniel meyer's expert rhythmic programming floored me. his programming on everything from industrial to four-on-the-floor techno has always been excellent, but his off-beats were even more drool-worthy than i could have anticipated. forget photek. forget luke vibert (under any name he's currently recording under.) architect found a form of d'n'b, in my opinion, as yet untapped. instrumentally mixing in a form of degenerated minimalism with some of the most complex, yet easy to follow beats, with a great touch of soundtrack quality, i had found a cd that would get heavy rotation until copy, cut, cycle (the long awaited new haujobb full-lengther) gets released. while most of the tracks are definitely not too dance-floor friendly, even for the most hard-core of d'n'b clubbers, there are a few rump-shakers, especially tracks 9 and 10, at least once you get past their lengthy (yet cool) introductions - a well loved tradition according to most haujobb fans. but it is the 'chill-out' listener who will gain the greatest benefits from this hard-to-find gem. this cd is great for popping in the computer when you're about to get some serious work done, or just for background noise, when you feel like having something to cover the silence, other than the telly.

the new empire
architect. galactic supermarket. cd
Now that drum and bass is something of a devalued currency - over-hyped and mass-produced, its best and brightest have gone the sad way and released strings of disappointments - i'm a lot more skeptical and critical of my purchases of this genre. That said, i've found the excitement I had when i first heard reats from dom & (x) and photek with the new full-length offering from architect, 'galactic supermarket'. The great coup is that this cd, and the 12" by hymen records labelmate beefcake, have been released on a small subsidiary of ant-zen records, which is known more for industrial noise freakouts and limited releases of gas-masks, concrete blocks, and rubbers that accompany their usually fine products. 'galactic supermarket' is spare and austere-looking in a vaguely retro-futuristic way - the heavy transparent plastic sleeve, the dull sparkly cd that looks very, very much like ae's 'chiastic slide' disc. the music matches it perfectly, and while similar to daniel myer's past influence, the redoubtable photek, surpasses even that now-foundering titan. like other successful 'drum and bass' full-lengths ('permutations', by amon tobin, for example), there are elements from other genres present. rchitect can fuse the dark, sinister ambience of many ant-zen bands (but not at all as noisy) and the atonal stutterings of idm a la funkstoerung at their best (actually, better) with the clean drums of ambient drum and bass to thrilling effect. unlike unsuccessful attempts at creating a full-length, such as photek's 'modus operandi', the experience never grows repetitive or stale - the same sounds aren't used ad infinitum, the beats are constantly evolving (a lesson dom and roland and panacea should have picked up, that they might have saved their otherwise excellent cd's), and none of these tracks have been released before on popular and better pressings - see 'modus operandi'. Tthe disc is inspirational in its attention to detail, which rivals that of autechre - a lot of work went into the creation of this cd, and it shows. It is, by far, the strongest of the haujobb side-projects, with the possible exception of dots and dashes (since i haven't heard it). If you liked myer,you'll be blown away by this project - the child truly is the father to the man in this case - architect is so much denser, more complex, and outright virtuosic despite its low-key vibe that the 'style' 12" sounds like a hackneyed cover act. as an added bonus, you'll even hear samples of the excellent beefcake on this album, a response, perhaps, to the haujobb samples used on 'spontaneous human combustion'. 'ahead', the track with the obvious beefcake sample, is one of the five best drum and bass tracks i have heard, right up there with 'ni ten ichi ryu'. the hype proves true, and the doubters are silenced - daniel myer, despite the protests from his core following and the criminal lack of coverage from any of the established techno scene, has revitalized drum and bass, and perhaps redefined it in its darker hours. this album rates a whole-hearted double-plus-fuckin'-good. too bad no one will hear it, as haujobb is ignored, along with hymen, of course, in favor of 4 hero, roni size, goldie, and all of the other acts that spin and rolling stone claim are the vanguard of the electronic sounds of the underground. (Diakon_Radish via Der Pimp)

re:mote induction

"cooly floating electronic structures construct around the demand of detail. those details - dreamed voices, slow glacier melodies - embrace my attention" those are the words i used to describe architect the first time i heard their music. that track, pastgate, is included on the first architect cd galactic supermarket and remains an outstanding track. here it is preceded by the intro of short memo - preparing the most basic pathways required for pastgate. following that pathway leads to the title tracks of galactic supermarket. featuring a sound that reminds of download's stanley pain - drawn, sighed voice elements and the movement of drum patterns. in its total it is more drifting, but the impression is strong. by contrast, once it starts random lfo reminds of daniel myer's parent project haujobb, perhaps freeze frame reality period. this stems from the sharply electronic beats and twitching melody. ahead is in the same league as pastgate, though more forceful beats move across the wavering hesitations of melody. derived from the origins of drum 'n' bass, layered percussion pins us down against the soft bass melody. preparing the way for the mystery of the vocal samples that emerge. more subtle eat raw initially consists of bleep edged clicks and low drones. the mood and feel of eat raw is different from the rest of the album concerning itself more whit spatial construction. another nice piece with a core of precise high-hat taps electronic moods again has something of a haujobb/download influence. the pace is up on many of the slower based pieces and the change rate is considerably higher. if previous tracks were too regular for you then this track is more likely to please with its variety of sound. rubbertrack and parallel show more of a techno influence. the former acid beat input through the architect sound. the latter erupting into rapid break beats after a long and slow intro. this feel continues into tot mann - a less pronounced intro giving ground to a steady drumtrack. with mechanism we return to the absolute highs of pastgate and ahead , with more of the tech-beat influence of parallel and tot mann. highly sprung rapid beats, drifting melodies and suggested voices. for me this is definitely the kind of track that architect do best. daniel myer has a number of projects, which as well as the already mentioned haujobb includes cleen and newt. as part of the duo haujobb his work has taken on a celebrated status. architect appears to be one of his most recent projects with galactic supermarket and the accompanying vinyl release galactic edge being their first release. at about the same time the only other band to have a cd release on the mainly vinyl label hymen was beefcake (though by the time this review has actually gone online there have been a couple of others added). between architect and beefcake we can see some stylistic similarities as though between them they are helping to shape the label's sound, at least in terms of their cd releases.

ultime atome

ca y est, encore un album de l'écurie hymen/ant-zen traité avec moult dithyrambes par mister pless, se dira le lecteur attentif et critique de l'ultime atome ; c'est pas possible, y'a forcément du pot-de-vin (blanc, of course) là-dessous... et bien non ! car, certes, on reçoit ces disques en promo ; mais c'est là tout ce qui nous unit à ces teutons fertiles... et cela ne scelle rien ; tenez, une fois, on a même réussi à recevoir "thunderdome !" (dont j'ai eu un mal fou à me débarrasser chez le premier soldeur venu, soi dit en passant...). il se trouve, effectivement, que le label en question - déjà bien connu pour son passif industrieux dans l'industriel - égrène depuis l'année dernière les merveilles électroniques, selon un angle de plus en plus vaste. et ce, il faut bien en convenir, dans une grande confidentialité. ainsi cet album d'"architect" (alias daniel myer), à la grande richesse climatique et rythmique (puisqu'il s'agit, pour résumer de drum'n'bass ambient) : aucun doute que s'il était sorti chez warp, ou, rions un peu, f.comm, le tout-paris de la presse musicale "tendance" en ferait illico presto ses choux gras... cette mélancolie ambiguë, saccadée, entrecoupée de rodomontades percussives imaginatives, ferait de daniel myer un "incontournable", voire, on n'est pas à ça près, un vieux pote, enfin limite... mais ant-zen trie ses envois promos (et toc !) puisque ses tirages sont économes ; et comme un journaliste parisien de ce cru-là vendrait sa mère (non, c'est déjà fait), au moins, sinon ses pompes, plutôt que d'acheter ce disque ; il va vous falloir nous faire confiance... en gros, pour vous situer plus clairement, donc cet album chatouillant à l'orteil et caressant au cortex, évanescent et suave, peut aisément faire passer celui des boards of canada (au printemps) pour une gâterie anecdotique. cela étant, il traîne donc en ces eaux-là ; on ne vous ment pas plus ici sur la quantité de mélodies que sur leur qualité... mais son exigence sonore et sa densité imaginative rendent tous les funkers de l'électro-pop bien cossards. et pâles. il s'agit là d'un investissement passablement indispensable, donc.

this is the newest entry in the overwhelming barrage of haujobb side projects. it's much more newt than cleen (or haujobb for that matter). in other words, it is essentially very minimalistic intelligent techno. the cd packaging itself is eyecatching, with green transparent plastic inserts rather than your standard paper inserts. definitely one of better design jobs i've seen. as for the music, daniel meier has come through with yet another technically excellent album. the question is, though, will *you* like it? haujobb has been steadily losing industrial fans as each album moved further and further out of the genre into intelligent techno; this side project is no exception. if you have been happy with this progression, and more importantly, liked newt, then this cd is definitely worthwhile, if not essential. if this change has sickened you and you are still patiently waiting for the triumphiant return of haujobb into the industrial scene, i suggest you avoid this one, especially at the current import prices. personally, i love this album - tho i do miss the old, more 'industrial' haujobb too. in a better world, we would have both. style: idm and jungle. notes: haujobb sideproject. review by krist

"galactic supermarket" released on hymen features the songs recorded over the period of three years by d.myer. it is an album that grows on you over time. do not just listen to it once or twice. this disc will create a completely unique and new atmosphere for you filled with chilling sequences, delicate beats, constantly changing melodies, occasional rough breaks and beats. this is not a soundtrack music - it is too intelligent for that demanding your complete attention. drum'n'bass rhythms go through every track, sometimes disappearing completely, sometimes becoming rather fast and harsh; the melody cracks, breaks, and finally vanishes only to appear again filled with wierd snoring or clicks; sweet sequences flow like waves: they come and go, creating changing swaying atmosphere. half of the tracks on the album are relatively aggressive with steady drum'n'bass beats, creacking, breaking sounds, interesting samples. my favorites are "pastgate", "mechanism" (constant changing beats, nice occasional bass lines), "ahead" (relatively complex with recognizable beats that stay throught the whole song), "parallel", "tot mann" (harsh, raw drum'n'bass and flowing sequences on the background, nothing else; very minimal and delicate). analog bleeps, drones, pulsating waves, vanishing sounds. very very minimalistic. the silence and empty spaces are an organic part of the music. they make the listener create the structures that are merely suggested by the music. this is why this album is truly intelligent forcing you to think and create images of your own. it never becomes boring or uninteresting. there always is another beat or unexpected turn too keep you on your toes. you can almost catch something reminding you of newt or forma tadre in several tracks. take your time, listen to it.

an der ersten cd von hymen bin ich ja nicht ganz unschuldig und ich freue mir fast ein loch in den bauch, das daniel meier mit architect sein wohl schon achtes musikalisches projekt am start hat (neben haujobb, cleen, dots and dashes, myer, s'aphex, newt und r:a). architect ist im gegensatz zu den eher tanzbaren drum'n bass-projekten mehr kopflastig und hier tauchen auch wieder die haujobb-typischen flächensounds auf, die bei zum beispiel dots and dashes völlig fehlen. man könnte die warmen soundexplorationen aus schwer nachvollziehbaren sequenzerprogrammierungen, trockenen beats und futuristischer atmosphäre, welche mit polyrhythmischen drumcodes verspleißt wurden, auch als ambient drum'n bass bezeichnen, aber dieses album ist einfach nur visionär und richtungsweisend! kurze sprachsamples steigern den unterhaltungswert bzw. lockern auf und bei "mechanism" blitzt sogar kurz ein funkiges gitarrensample auf, was meiner meinung nach von inxs's "i need you to night" oder vielleicht doch von prince stammt...? musikalisch kann man vergleiche zu den letzten haujobb-arbeiten ziehen und ich stifte jeden abend eine kerze, auf das uns das genie daniel meier nur lang noch erhalten bleibt. die cd ist sehr minimal-tranzparent gestaltet und enthält 11 tracks, die lp (wie immer nur echt mit briefmarke) birgt 3 tracks der cd und 3 neue titel, die denen der cd in nichts nachstehen. beeindruckend, auf allerhöchstem niveau und wirklich innovativ!

pas forcément très médiatisé, "galactic supermarket" a pourtant tout pour plaire. agréable à écouter, démonstratif et recherché, le son est clair et précis. beats fracturés sur fond d'ambient planant et mélodique sur "short memo" ou "pastgate", sonorités acides et drones organiques sur l'éponyme "galactic supermarket", franchement electro pendant "random lfo", voire mélancolique et saccadé avec "ahead". un frottement creux et répétitif débute "eat raw". puis le labyrinthe de bruits vivants se dessine et happe l'auditeur dans sa chaîne sans fin. "electronic moods" est un mix d'infrabass et de jungle polymorphe. "rubbertrack" marche dans le sillon du clicks n' cuts aux réminiscences transe. tonalité aiguë et gros breakbeat tranchant sur "parallel", puis retour à la jungle sombre pour "tot mann". "mechanism", qui termine l'écoute, fait penser à squarepusher. groove écartelé et atmosphère

de réclusion. complexe mais facile à suivre, "galactic supermarket" s'écoute comme un album reposant mais actif.
