Markus Popp’s now legendary early album releases as OVAL sent shockwaves through the “elec-tronica” landscape in the late 1990’s – introducing a unique, new sound and digital production aesthetic. With an undeniable instinct for the pleasantly irritating, the drastic and the dreamy, Popp pioneered “glitch” and “clicks & cuts”, inspiring and provoking an entire generation of musicians to this day.
After a long hiatus, Oval is back, changing the game all over again with a new, groundbreak-ing “hyperreal” style and no less than 150+ compelling tracks, spanning two EPs (“Oh! EP”, “Oval/Liturgy split EP”) and two double CDs/DVDs (“O”, OvalDNA”) – proving him as one of *the* prolific & influential forces in contemporary electronic music, a true visionary of digital audio and beyond.
On his site you can now grab a collaboration album with a bunch of great South American vocalists called CALIDOSTOPIA. A relaxed and easy laid-back journey deep into glitch territory.
“A triumphant return for Oval, both musically and intellectually. This is meta music for the soul.” – FACT Magazine
