As I was sinking into abyss and sleep depraved due to the continuous sound of heavy traffic, I found comfort in music, mainly power electronics and it’s derivatives. I wasn’t eating much and trying to find ways to survive. All was becoming a big dark chaotic cloud. The clubs I was attending were become more uninteresting. There was no challenge.
I thought to organise an evening which represented the actual pulse of dance music of 2011 (so I thought in my state). I felt dance music was shifting towards something darker then. I couldn’t find any answers and had to do something. I wanted to bring worlds together. I invited drone master AUN, versatile artist/producer Hadamard and Transistors of Mercy as analog live improv session to open the night. Super talented Moran Sandorovich perform as well. I called the event ‘Metaphysik’ which explained my concept pretty well. It was actually disastrous in a way and successful in an other. Some didn’t appreciate the night till this day and to them I wish *censored)*, others got it (thankfully)!
After this odd rendez-vous, I got back to my daily heavy environmental noise pollution. I noticed music (mainly pe, death industrial) became a blanket, a wall of sound and the traffic camouflaged itself into it. Dark ambient was screaming between the layers of noise, sounding even more grim. I notice the physical strength and ability of music, that frequencies can be used as a physical tool. On a random day, I came accross Asolaar and his music on the net. I thought the name was nice. I clicked. 3 seconds later. My mind blew. Images rapidly flashed, illustrating the scenario and there it was, my answer. THAT was the future of music and the direction it should take. I decided at that moment that I needed a label. And… it would be called metaphysik.
