Architect is a unique hybrid of idm, electronica and smooth ambient soundscapes as inexhaustibly explored by german mastermind Daniel Myer. Born in 1971 and based in bielefeld, Daniel began experimenting with electronic music in his teenage years, and in 1993 he founded the legendary electro-industrial/ebm project Haujobb. Since then he has made a name for himself in the modern electronic music scene and initiated a legion of first class band projects like HMB, Newt and Destroid. Daniel is now also a permanent member of the renowned Swedish ebm band Covenant and has been since he first joined in 2007. As if that were not enough, he also busies himself by working as a producer, live and studio musician for various other projects.

Architect was created in 1998 and can be easily described as the most outstanding and fascinating of Daniel's projects. Musically, Architect are a fusion of multiple styles – primarily focusing on minimal techno, glitch and drum'n'bass. However architects greatest feature is that the use of slow tempos and occasional long vocal samples manage to combine with tight and forceful rhythms to render the music suitable for both listening and dancing.
