Metope’s tracks sometimes seem as if they longed to turn their digital being into real flesh. Unable to achieve this, they try to imagine what it would be like, by using bit reduction processes to simulate half forgotten thoughts. After years of calculations and communications with the spirit of a long forgotten master called „Sid“, they were still dissatisfied and they still didn’t know what being human feels like, ...they had not even the faintest idea. But one day this frustrating situation came to an end. Metope played a few beautiful, yet slightly melancholic chords, recorded them and nearly went crazy when he realised what had happend:............."my love feels digital" he said to himself........ “my digital feels love“ appeared on the screen... Metope has been producing electronic music for almost 20 years. He founded his label Areal Records in 2001. Through his releases on Areal he was soon being invited to perform live at clubs and festivals worldwide. In 2005 he released his first full-length album, “Kobol” which received critical acclaim for it's dark and original take on what a techno LP should be. His second album “Black Beauty” was released in 2012. Over the years Metope has also made a name for himself as a remixer, putting his touch on artists such as Depeche Mode, Gabriel Ananda, Ada, Niconé, Fairmont and others. Besides Areal, Metope is also running the labels IRR, the label Beachcoma with Canadian friends Sid Le Rock and Fairmont, and the booking agency We The Artists Agency.
