Artist: DJ Metatron
Title: U’ll Be The King Of The Stars

What sets music apart from basic collections of sounds is that it contains a certain narrative. By arranging sounds into a certain following order, a story can be told that can even elicit certain emotions. As you might have noticed by now, we try to put that narrative into words the best we can. That’s because we think that it’s easier to identify with the music we love, if we tell you why we love it. So what we aim to do is telling stories about telling stories. On a meta level you could say.
The artist we’re featuring today – DJ Metatron – is a fascinating story in itself. His musical style is evolving rapidly, and whenever a new phase arrives, he creates a new artistic persona. From the raw techno alias Prince of Denmark, to the dream-housy Traumprinz and now the cosmic giant DJ Metatron or ‘the king of stars’.
It’s not easy to figure out who is behind these personas. Or at least you won’t find it out after reading the first two pages of Google results. We probably could find out who he is, but we choose not to do so. It’s much more fun to fantasize about some Danish prince that starts out as your run of the mill prince, turns into a super-ego of himself and eventually evolves into a monstrous meta-beast of cosmic proportions. In that way it results into a story about a story about a story. How ‘meta’ is that?
