Meetsysteem is the mystical pop outfit of Amsterdam based Ricky Cherim. He spent most of his youth in the basement of his parents making music. Through tech house, beat scene and rap, he finally found his voice in the Dutch pop song. His debut album ‘Geen Signaal’ on the Rotterdam-based label Nous’klaer goes down countless musical paths and creates an immersive world of poppy electronica. The record explosively entered the radar of international music media and brought him and his oddball band to an impressive handful of first gigs; Motel Mozaïque, Lowlands, FiftyFiftyLab, Amsterdam Dance Event & Wildeburg among others. Fresh out of isolation for a globally known reason; ‘Sinaasappels’ is the first taste of his second album.

One year after his lauded debut album Geen Signaal, Meetsysteem announces his follow up full length: Cr:GO.

The Dutch oddball pop singer/songwriter turned band delivers 13 new songs to dance and dream to. An album about the anxious bubbles we live in, the contradictions of being a human being in complex times and warm dreams of an alternative universe. All in his typical, gentle style but packed with messages calling to reflect on our way of being.



For his latest single Sinaasappels (‘Oranges’), Meetsysteem collaborated with another Amsterdam oddball, fashion designer Camiel Fortgens.

Together they created a film about a gently dystopian future, where all is well and not well. Wrapped in Camiel’s signature boyish shapes and primal colours. Beautiful decay. Warm loneliness. The confusing dreams of our generation.




Cr:GO will also include a broad range of collaborators including Gotu Jim, Ray Fuego, Oceanic, Melatonin Man, Oneva and Gijsje Heemskerk.



Meetsysteem laat ruimte voor interpretatie’ - [NRC, 4/5]


Meetsysteem zou wel eens de meer gesofisticeerde Bazart van Nederland kunnen worden, of de opvolger van Spinvis.’ [De Dansende Beren, 4/5]

‘Nederlandse mompelzang, de sound van The Cure en potentie een snelweg-bij-nacht-anthem te worden’ - [CJP]

‘En zo heb je er ineens een nieuwe favoriete Nederlandse act bij met een
mengelmoes van wollige jaren tachtig-basjes, kunststof-achtige synths,
vervreemdende phasers en Nederlandse vocalen die fans van Eefje de
Visser en Roosbeef zeker kunnen waarderen’ - 
[The Daily Indie]
