RECOIL – Want – The Architect Mixes – Available Today
aaamusic | On 18, Oct 2010
Following the release of Selected earlier this year, Recoil announces the release of Want, available today (18 Oct 2010) as a special download package. Three new versions of Want (featuring Nicole Blackman) have been expertly put together by Architect, the creation of German mastermind Daniel Myer.
Alan Wilder explains: “Having embarked on a series of live events earlier this year, entitled ‘A Strange Hour’, I found myself re-visiting and re-working many of my favourite pieces. With this in mind, I also kept my ears open for interesting people to contribute to this process and quite early into the tour was introduced to Daniel and his array of projects. I spent many an hour in various hotel gyms, headphones connected, being strangely hypnotised by his work – in particular from Architect’s recent album ‘Consume Adapt Create’.”
In 1993 Daniel Myer founded the legendary electro-industrial/EBM project Haujobb. Since then he has made a name for himself within the electronic scene and initiated many other projects such as HMB, Newt and Destroid. Since 2007, Myer has been a permanent member of the renowned Swedish EBM band Covenant. Architect was created in 1998 and can be easily described as the most fascinating of Daniel’s projects. Focusing primarily on minimal techno, powerfully distorted sequences and razor-sharp breakbeats, Architect creates a unique hybrid of electronica with smooth ambient soundscapes, rendering the results suitable for both listening and dancing.
Included in the Want package is a new film to accompany the main mix. Directed by Dmitry Semenov, the films use time-lapse photography and features Daria Kuznetsova & Sergey Kochetkov. The package also includes a downloadable photographic book, shot during Recoil’s European tour between April & May 2010 by Ivana Dvorska, plus an additional bonus mix of Jezebel by Ehron VonAllen.
