DON MEERS

 

DON MEERS - ..4.30AM

hip-beats + nu-jazz + scattered-breaks

From the manic cool of rum boogie and his
bionic-beat rewiring of $6million astronaut Steve Austin in
we have the technology, to the swinging beauty of
poetic-locomotion
gelber mond, fireworks at night and 4.30am
sample freak Don Meers brushes this moody soundscape with
luminous textures that will both chill and warm the darkest
corners of your mind.

REVIEW FROM CAPITAL Q
"If you're looking for electronica with the vibe of a smoky after
hours club, look no further than 4.30am, the new EP from local
electro beat poet Don Meers. The man taps into a wicked world of
wild jazz samples, down to earth vocal cuts, ambience, and
sensually pulsating rhythms for this five-track journey. It draws
you in with the clubbed up cool of big band 'Rum Boogie', mellows
you out with the dark sensuality of bass, brushed percussion,
brass and woodwind of 'Gelber Mond', then scoops you back up
into the bionic jazz meets twisted tech workout of 'We Have The
Technology'. An that's only the halfway mark! The EP's title track
has a dreamy piano melody loping down darkly echoing hallways
at 4.30am, before finally emerging into the real world hustle and
bustle of 'Fireworks At Night', its piano traveling hesitantly within
a frenetic drum and bass soundscape. A well realised and
beautifully atmospheric ride." [Paul Turner]

REVIEW OF 4.30AM TRACK
FROM BEATSCOOTIN

"...The title track from his new ep,
a totally convincing film noir trip
through imaginary back streets
in a city that never sleeps.
Minimal jazz-meets-beats with
an edgy dark heart. Nice one."
[Matt Dickson, Jazz Grooves - Sydney Is]

REVIEW FROM DRUM MEDIA
"...Something genuinely musical as well as moody ....
sometimes it will carry you somewhere languid, or then
pierce your head. Intriguing." [Ross Clelland, Drum Media]
