Architect - Mine
IDM, Glitch And here we have a contender for Album of the Month! Architect has already released a few albums which were all very good. This one follows the trend, so fans will be happy to know this is a must buy as well. Architect is the solo project of Daniel Myer of Haujobb fame. In this projects he is busy with more IDM based music with some influences from dubstep, industrial, triphop, synthpop and techno.

On 'Mine' Daniel collaborates with some people. Most songs are with vocalist Emese Arvai-Illis who has a very good voice. The music on those tracks is not far from a cleaner produced Portishead. He also works with Comaduster on a track, and his Haujobb collegue Dejan on one.

'Mine' is a very pleasant listening experience. The production is superb, and the songs are well crafted and executed. The album has a relaxed and dark pace without losing itself in bombast and pathos. There are heavy basses humming on most tracks which is very nice for a bass lover like myself. Especially "Neverending" is a great track which sounds somewhere between Plaid and Burial. Another favorite is the futurepop/synthpop influenced IDM track "The sun" which plays around with futurepop sounds while achieving to avoid every trap of that genre. My most favorite track of the album would be "Set my world on fire" which sounds very much like the product of a well versed Detroit Techno producer.

Lovers of good quality electronic music will find a lot to love on this new Architect album. Influences are all over the field, and are all combined into very original tracks which are pleasant to listen to. Excellent work, but that is no surprise since i have come to expect this level of craftsmanship from someone like Daniel Myer. Get this!
