David Mayer

Sunhole

Let’s go with one of the founders of the German label Keinemusik. He is David Mayer, who already has a handful of good references on his label, and also on Paso Music. He has lived at various stages of his life in Norway and Spain, but he returned to his native Germany some time ago. Keinemusik has a large roster of quality, people like Adam Port, Rampa and &me, and now presents an EP called Workparty Four, with two original Mr. Mayer cuts.

Sunhole presents several David Mayer trademark elements. One is the percussion, blunt but thoughtful, solid but with much groove. The melodies are simple but effective, with a very round bass, and a significant succession of notes at the breakdown. Meanwhile, Lead shows higher frequency percussion, and some more twisted synthesizers. Filters and white noise decorate the track in a very elegant way.
