MEOKO: Please send links to 3 YouTube tracks that have been the main inspiration to where you are now…


Autechre – Clipper
They have been a very big inspiration for me in the mid 90ies. Their record “Tri repitae” is the electronic album I listened to most. I just love this combination of “cold” sounding beats and and very warm harmonies just being hidden behind them.

Mathew Jonson – When love feels like cyring
 For me one of the most amazing tracks that was released in the past years. Don’t know how he manages to create such a melancholic atmosphere with so little elements.


Marek Hemmann – Changes of perception Remix 
 This track literally inspired me when I played it way slower one day. I even tried to re-program bits of the groove for one of my own tracks….

What does music mean to you?

 Music has been the most important inorganic companion in my life. Music always consoled me when I needed to be (consoled). Also I am connected to most of my friends through music…it’s just always there, no way to imagine a world without music.

 What was the first piece of music that really inspired you?

Leonard Cohen – Suzanne
 First time I heard this song was when I was 10, it instantly created pictures in my head, without even understanding a single word of the lyrics.

Please tell us the moment you knew you wanted to devote your life to music? 

It hasn’t been a particular moment, rather a growing experience. But I remember when I was around 20 years old, I had this moment where I knew that if I didn’t try to make music become my profession, I’d always regret this in my later life…

Without music what would you be doing?

 I am very happy not having to imagine this…

 What is your favourite place to listen to music?

A quiet place.

 What music are you currently working on?

I am currently recording a new album with my band “The Notwist”.
