As Don’t DJ, Meyer has been refining his approach since 2013. Early releases on Diskant sound like complex technical exercises for tuned percussion instruments. Later, things became more expressive. 2015’s “Hexentrix” starts throbbing and sinister, before twinkling arpeggios scatter over its surface like jewels flashing in the dark. The following year’s “Gammellan” is darker, with something unsettling in its sour, metallic polyrhythms.
Don’t DJ is playing at BAR on Saturday November 4th.
