Not just Madonna booked him: Martin Meister presents his comeback with the album 'Disco Beach Beat Machine,' which debuted at #2 on the Austrian iTunes Dance Charts and #17 on the Austrian iTunes Top Albums Charts.
Beyond visual success, Martin Meister holds a special place in music history. He had a notable cameo in a Madonna music video, sharing the screen with the iconic Anita Pallenberg. Collaborating with Kris Di Angelis of UK chart-topper KDA, he produced two numbers early in his career. Star producers Barry Stone (Jewels & Stone/Dead or Alive) and Cathy Dennis (renowned for hits like Kylie's 'Can’t Get You Out Of My Head') feature on Martin's resume. Cathy Dennis granted Martin another cameo in one of her music videos alongside BBC presenter Vernon Kay. Preserving the past and conveying it to new generations is Martin Meister's focus. His lyrics reflect societal mirrors, and his music production draws inspiration from iconic cultural figures with the aim of bringing them into the present.
The new album 'Disco Beach Beat Machine' took Martin Meister several years to complete, entirely self-produced. The album features Martin Meister's written singles: 'The Art is Done (a Xmas Song)' for Christmas 2023, 'True That 2.0,' and 'Live Life' for New Year 2024. Remix versions of 'Music in You' for the club scene will be available from November 10, 2023. 'DISCO BEACH BEAT MACHINE' isn't just an album; it's a captivating journey through retro sounding landscapes that touch us through kinship. Martin Meister's lyrics mirror the challenges artists and people face, particularly in the turbulent years of the global pandemic, conflicts, and economic instability. 'Disco Beach Beat Machine' provides a moving and empowering soundtrack. The album cover featuring a robot representing Meister himself (a photo of Martin Meister transformed into a semi-animated creature) symbolizes the complexity of our lives. It presents the sunny side of existence hidden behind a intricate surface. 'Disco Beach Beat Machine' explores the Yin and Yang of life – the moon ('Insomnia') and the sun ('Live Life'), water ('Marian') and air ('Disco Beach') – with a unique blend of smoky vocal tones, pulsating dance beats, and a live choir to reflect the essence of our souls. Martin's musical vision for the album is equally diverse, combining retro-inspired familiar sounds with contemporary beats. '
All tracks on the album were personally produced by Martin Meister from start to finish. Martin wrote the lyrics for nine songs himself. For instance, the opening song 'Disco Beach' vividly paints a picture of a 'TikTok' enthusiast dreaming on her daily journey. 'Till & Jill' delves into the humorous yet inappropriate text messages of a rock musician. 'Giorgio' pays homage to the iconic pioneer of electronic dance music and DJ Giorgio Moroder, whose work, including Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love,' paved the way for generations of electronic dance music. 'Live Life' serves as a celebration of life itself, while 'Not Giving In' conveys a determined message, encouraging listeners to pursue their path despite societal noise. 'Music In You' serves as a reminder that we all carry something positive within us, and expressing it attracts goodness. 'The Art is Done (a Xmas Song)' explores the struggle to find one's place, whether as an artist or a person in a rapidly evolving world where success is an ongoing pursuit. 'Disco Beach Beat Machine' is a vibrant musical journey that transcends time, space, and boundaries. This album is more than just an electronic disco dance anthem; it is a celebration of the complexity of life and a reminder that every sound and beat has its unique rhythm.
