Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-12-06
Blippy breakbeatish electronica. Chill with exotica tones here there reminiscent of Amon Tobin. Creations of Markus Popp, an artist with orgins from the early 90’s, are innovative and fresh. Play with the new Hausschilt in afile. From Thrill Jockey: “New album Scis and its companion EP Eksploio see the producer focus on composition, working with a fresh palette of sounds to create his most emotive work to date. Popp injects a newfound playfulness into his complex loop architectures, with both album and EP exploring and subverting elements of club music. The intricate, organic drum sounds Popp introduced on the Oh! EP and O album have here been replaced with driving electronic rhythms, albeit still approached by Popp as an instrumentalist rather than a beat-maker.”

1) (4:40) kinda blippy and mildly breakbeat. 2) (4:00) chill, exotica tone deep down a la Amon Tobin. 3) (3:28) chill and blippy 4) (4:16) flutey stringlike synths abound in the blippy 5) (3:44) exotica tone with vibes
