Cutting edge tracks

"Popof is a French DJ/composer/arranger hailing from the rave party scene. A former member of the free-party underground collective “Heretik System”, he has now participated as a solo artist in countless events throughout France, other European countries, North America, Latin America, the Middle-East, Asia and Australia.
He is a versatile artist who explores various genres of music. Today, he stresses his preference towards minimal techno and electro. His cutting edge tracks are made within the best traditions of techno mixed with a sip of tech-house.
Popof is featured on various labels such as Turbo, Cocoon, A.F.U, Cr2, Mistakes and others and is often playlisted by many renowned artists: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Sven Vath, John Digweed, Tiga, Sasha, Erol Alkan, etc. He has now become a superstar at the level that each release gets at least into the Top 5 download lists, if not the first place.
Popof is now very in demand for his remixes. The list of them is already quite impressive, it includes famous artists such as Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Moby, Booka Shade, Vitalic, Tiga, Martin Solveig and others.
In 2009 he created his own label ”Form” to express his artistic ambitions more freely."

Dj Hardcore reconnu dans les raves et teknivals, Popof de son vrai nom Alexandre Paounov a abandonné la techno brute pour se lancer sur la scène techno minimale en 2007. Réussite totale pour le parisien qui mélange tech-house, electro et techno de minimale à progressive.
En 2009 il a fondé son propre label, Form, sur lequel il sort ses  productions. Gardant une marque de fabrique du beat dont il cache précieusement la formule, sa force réside dans le maniement et l'enchaînement des basses jouées avec une cadence ordonnée, lancinante et entêtante. Résultat : une puissance et une efficacité rare. Remixeur demandé (pour Tiga, Moby, Depeche Mode, Vitalic, Zoo Brazil…) Popof s'est fait un nom et une réputation internationale, notamment grâce à des dj set transcendants et d'une intensité hors norme.
