Biography

You wouldn’t be entirely wrong NOT thinking that The Dead Bears is Newworldaquariums debut album, but yet it is. It’s true, years back Amsterdam based producer Jochem Peteri released an album called ‘Strike’, using his pseudonym 154. “But to tell you the truth that’s a very personal project”, Peteri states. “It reflects my abstract side. Newworldaquarium is more about me and the world around me.”

The Dead Bears. If you’ve seen ‘Grizzly Man’ by film director, Werner Herzog, you’ll understand how and why Peteri was inspired. Originally The Dead Bears was also the name of an attempted krautrock-band, but sadly, that project never materialised. “We had this romantic idea of making something completely alien together”, Peteri laughs. “But all we did was get drunk and play each other obscure records.”

But, The Dead Bears didn’t die. It became the title of Peteri’s first ‘proper’ album as Newworldaquarium. Eleven hypnotising tracks that get better and better each time you hear them. Did we say tracks? We meant grooves. Grooves that go on endlessly,that slowly change colour and shape and sneak their way into your head. You simply don’t want them to end.

Often it’s a groove in slow motion, as is the case on ‘Star Power’, best compared with an early Carl Craig-tune played on 33 revolutions.
