Matik the machinery and weapons to conquer the audience's ears. Began as a concept for defining the collaboration, between young artist and designer Dann Mecklar & producer Federico Goes (ex Estados Alterados), that took place in Medellin City in 2004. Its developement as a project for itself, defining the image of the artist Dann Mecklar in the underground scene of Bogotá and Colombia, occured during 2005 and helped him positioning as one of most important indie artists of latin american scene these days. Lots of performances in the most important electronic clubs of the country, like Cha Cha Club, La Sala, Gotica, Cinema (Bogota), El Deck, Berlin Bar (Medellin); sharing stage with international artists like Boy George, Mount Sims, Felix Da Housecat and Tok Tok vs.
Soffy O or the first EP of the project “I love my Atari” worldwide released in April 2006 under french label Sismic Music; are just the first steps of a project qualified and ready-to seduce other latitudes; teaching the latin-american way of making move feet and shaking asses. “Gumpop Trash Electro” is how Zygo defines his music. Not a style, nor a genre. It's just another way of viewing what happens in this context and re-construct that reality through a personal language as songs.
Obviously as a self projection. Sweet and bitter. Sometimes utopic, others cruel. But always in search of comunicating something: a feeling, a thought, a smile or a lament.
It doesn't matter. Zygo is Dann Mecklar's alter ego, the singer character. Just one side of the artist also complemented by the writer, the model and the designer. A character difficult to ignore. His warm multi-coloured voice is able to transport to another level of understanding; music is joy, dance & entertainment but also the way of telling a story, maybe too auto biographical but impossible to separte from the author.
An author communicating the importance of the message. Maybe too critic? An astonishing voice poisoned with that indie tone evoking Daniel Ash or Roberth Smith but with the shiny personality of Bowie; the polemic words of Bukowski contradicting the fashionable image of a Gaultier's character.
