Trailblazing glitch masterpieces (1990s), delicate, hyper-real, futuristic post-rock vignettes (after 2010) and now abstract club bangers with a delicious twist – Markus Popp aka Oval continues to be one of the most prolific, influential forces in contemporary electronic music, a true visionary of digital musics.
Every Oval album is a unique, shape-shifting celebration of innovation, skill and sensibility. In an age of shallow spectacle, M. Popp keeps on reinventing music – merging uncompromising high tech with compelling musicality. He is distinctly doing his own thing, yet always enthusiastically dealing with the “now”. Fact: No one out there plays the computer quite like him.
