    Just getting into this guy. Really love everything I have heard so far. He takes the emotional intensity of artists like Tim Hecker and Ben Frost and brings it to the dancefloor. Just awesome.

    ^^^ That will be very interesting to hear.

    Preview of some tracks that're coming out on his next EP, which will be released on April 10th.


    http://soundcloud.com/max-cooper/max...aphy-preview-1
    http://soundcloud.com/ripperton/max-cooper-autumn-haze
    http://soundcloud.com/max-cooper/max-cooper-raw-preview
    http://soundcloud.com/marcromboy/max...-marc-romboy-s
    http://soundcloud.com/max-cooper/max-cooper-micron



    TRACK LIST:

    A1. Epitaphy
    A2. Autumn Haze
    B1. Autumn Haze (Ripperton's frostbite remix)
    B2. Raw Digital
    5. Raw (Marc Romboy remix)
    6. Simplexity
    7. Simplexity (Rone remix)
    8. Micron
    It has been half a year since we released the last Max Cooper EP on Traum, so his new finished EP comes in handy for all of his fans and people interested in the grey zone of techno vs. electronica.

    Max Cooper’s new release the „Egomodal EP“ comes in its vinyl version as a 4 tracks EP and with its xtra tracks on digital it adds up to a great piece of music. Once again it focuses on dynamics and tangents, along with the concept of complexity and simplicity. The „Egomodal EP“ stays true to Max Cooper’s approach to link a mathematical structure with a simple one.

    We are happy to say he has succeeded to fuse complexity with variations by still finding time to focus on details and keeping up that nice randomness which makes his music so appealing also for clubbers and DJs.

    This release is extremely diverse in styles and offers in its vinyl version everything from the dark Detroit electro styled techno piece „Epitaphy“ that evokes old Detroit days… to the melodically trembling „Autumn Haze“ that is a huge track because its flow is superbly programmed... to Ripperton’s mighty house hymn of a remix, ending in the basseline monster "Raw" which looses its teeth towards the end. The second part of the release features the beautifully melodic "Micron" and the abstract piece of electronica with the name of "Simplicity" that has its cut up vocals dancing like flames around a campfire.

    The second part of the release also features two big remixes. The second remix comes from Rone who has recently remixed Dominik Eulberg’s track „Der Tanz der Glühwuermchen" for Traum. Rone has chosen "Simplicity" to work it in a lyrical and build up… stream like fashion.

    Hrm... I don't think so? He may have but I don't remember any of them from the sets I saw. There is an already released track that sounds somewhat similar to Micron. I'd have to think about what it is though.

    Yup, I've been scooping up all his releases (that I can find) on vinyl. Finally bought a record player last week.

    It was a very exclusive party. Happy to say that upon my second listen, on my very shitty sound speakers, l told my friend that that is most certainly one of my top 5 electronic performances. She had been to the show too, and agreed. The other participee has no idea who Max Cooper was and absolutely zero knowledge of EDM in general, and also loved it.

    Love his work. You dont see many dj/producers open a show with a string of their own material. Next level stuff going on with this guy.
