Trailblazing glitch masterpieces (1990s), delicate, hyperreal, futuristic post-rock vignettes (after 2010) and now abstract club bangers with a twist – Markus Popp aka Oval continues to be one of the most prolific, influential forces in contemporary electronic music. Every Oval album is a different, shape-shifting celebration of innovation, skill & sensibility. In an age of shallow spectacle, Popp just keeps on reinventing music – merging uncompromising high tech with compelling musicality. Markus Popp has continuously refined his instantly recognizable, signature style in numerous projects for film, installation art, dance and interactive media, Popp has also worked for/with: Björk, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Apparat, Tortoise, Mouse on Mars just to name a few.
With the new album “Popp”, Oval changed the game all over again: What started as a re-visit of the 1990s Oval aesthetic using today’s tools, quickly turned into a deep dive. The result is a club (!) album, Oval-style: A relentless, euphoric love letter to a long-lost musical utopia: Kaleidoscopic and soulful, optimistic and grandiose = fantasy club tracks from an alternate universe.
