Austria / Linz
Meanda`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 were even recorded and broadcasted on popular Austrian private television channels.Meanda decided to reduce the 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.
The big highlight is his remix for the Art of Trance single Chung Kuo which is a remake of a Vangelis classic, on Porcupine Records, Platipus Music (UK).His compositions use the monotonous and hypnotic electronic rhythms as a carrier for engraving with emotional melodies made of several voices, staying true to underground (progressive) trance music.
Using different effects based on the endless possibilities of electronic music and self-recorded vocals, instruments and noises are what Meanda is all about.
