Oramkahl It has taken me a very long time to get past my initial bewilderment at how much this album tells a story. It was a journey of beautiful monotony, of dealing with inadequacies... I was hooked from the start. This whole album could be classified as a favorite track, and hats of to you, Daniel, and I hope this and your future work has helped you find your way through this world. Favorite track: 185.

Strittles I've listened to this album countless times and I find it to be jaw-droppingly beautiful. The anti-conformist angst, the struggle of the life of an artist - and of Daniel as just a human - is what makes this so raw and powerful. Here's to a million more play-throughs of this wondrous artwork. Favorite track: Seismic Stratigraphy.

about

148 is a highly energetic and loud mouthed release full of house and drum&bass tunes. There's a house ballad, there's collaboration with cool artists and there's also some surprises, like Minecraft remixes I haven't shown anywhere else but at live shows.

I've been working on this thing for over five years. At least a few songs I've worked on from the beginning until the last day, even. I wish I would have saved every single version of all of these songs so I could see how they changed, but before 2012 I really didn't understand what backing up really meant, haha. This album is also a super interesting evolution of my own sound. When I started making it, I was all into all-analog. When I finished making it, I wasn't really concerned about using digital means to reach the same goal anymore. When I started making this, I was a scared composer, fresh off of Minecraft fame. Unsure what the future would bring me. And when I finished making it, I became a jaded composer, hypercritical of every single piece I ever created, worried that my old work shows that I'm not good enough.

That really doesn't matter anymore though, because I think I'm happy with this album.

It just has been plaguing me for too long. I think that you can't be happy with anything if you've stared at it too close for too long. Which is why I decided to stealth release it without any announcement. I've had incredibly unproductive years recently, and a lot of it had to do with being burnt out and partly being somewhat depressed. This album didn't really help my psyche either. By releasing this, right now, I hope I can get to a clean slate and start beginning work on new stuff. And, of course, maybe it stops making everyone worried that I stopped composing altogether.

So, this is it! 148 has been started on a gigantic computer system somewhere in East Germany in 2011 and finished on a tiny laptop in Toronto, 2015.

I really hope you like it! And if you don't, I'm not dead yet. I'll have more music. So much more.

-Daniel
