...monotonous and hypnotic electronic rhythms as a carrier...
BiographyMeanda`s musical career began as a DJ in 2002 reaching 3rd place at a big Austrian DJ-Contest out of 70 competitors. Gigs on several Austrian and German radio stations followed this recent success. The demand for his services as a DJ reached throughout Austria to different countries in Middle and Eastern Europe. Some of his sets even were recorded and broadcasted at some popular Austrian private television channels.
After all Meanda decided to reduce his number of performances on stage to spend more time on composing his own pieces of music which finally lead to his first release at JOOF Recordings (UK) in 2009. An outstanding highlight is his remix for the Art of Trance single Chung Kuo which is a remake of Vangelis Classic, to find at the label Porcupine Records/Platipus Music (UK).
Since January 2014 Meanda hosts his own regular radioshow called Artefacts which provides one hour of melodic and progressive elctronic music, creating a special journey for the listeners with every episode. Started on JR.FM Radio Network New York, in 2019 Meanda moved to UK based Undergroundkollektiv radio, broadcasting Artefacts every fourth Sunday at 08pm GMT London time.
In 2016 Meanda joined the team of Landscapes Music from London/UK as A&R and found the homebase for most of his release.
His compositions use the monotonous and hypnotic electronic rhythms as a carrier for engraving and emotional melodies made of several voices, never leaving the genre of underground (progressive) trance music. Different effects based on the endless possibilities of electronic music and self-recorded vocals, instruments and noises are completing his collages of sound.
