MP3: Mikkel Meyer - Tunge

As I offhandedly mentioned the other day, the new Mikkel Meyer record "Bacon" is pretty great, easily one of the best electronica releases I've heard in 2009. For a while I had him confused with Mikkel Metal, another Danish electronic artist whose work tends to be jazzier, more minimal, and frankly, pretty damn boring, but lucky for Meyer, his work is nothing like that at all. "Tunge" is one of the few non-instrumental tracks from the record and sees him paired with rapper Non from Chicago-based act Shadowhuntaz, quite a complementary pairing I'd say. Non's basso profundo voice works quite well on top of Meyer's gut-churning worble and staggering beats. Twisted in all the right ways, I say, not like a lot of the over-quantized easy-listening garbage that normally gets sent my way. It's got character, damn it!

Dane Mikkel Metal released his first album on Kompakt, the German electronic label. The collection of songs feature beats so crisp you can bite into them and notes that live up to his metallic industrial name. Math-rock type of electronica makes it sound like it would be at home as the soundtrack for a David Lynch film. But even if he has achieved a great quality of sound, the songs don't have enough development to be enjoyed easily. This problem can be viewed in three different ways: innovative, experimental or just slow. If you like Aphex Twin or 65 days of static, try Mikkel Metal.
