Anthony Rother is often one of our residents at this blog. Actually many of us like his music and follow his work for many years now. For those who dont know Rother , is an electronic music producer and label owner (he owns datapunk) living in Frankfurt. Our aim in this post is a brief presentation of Anthony Rother’s contribution to electronic music , as well as to announce his new work Popkiller 2.
Anthony Rother counts an essential number of good electro and techno tracks and collaborations with artists such as dj hell , Sven vath and many others. In addition to electro Rother also composes dark ambient stuff. I catch up with his music actually not really in the beginning of his career but a bit later in the 2007. The electro sound produced by Rother is rather unique characterized by repetitive machine beats and robotic vocals , sometimes reminds a lot something of kraftwerk and the very beginning of this “futurist” concept.
A release “presentation party” of popkiller 2 will take place at 21th of May at legendary Cocoon in Frankfurt , perform LIVE and play a DJ Set – with support from Butch and Sven Hartmüller, if you live close to this dont miss it.
