Max Cooper Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
36 tracks, 120 minutes - quite a mix from multimedia artist Max Cooper. Bit of an understatement to call it a ‘mix’ though, since Max has tinkered in all sorts of ways with the material to suit his tastes as a producer (such as enlisting a binaural cloud effect plugin by chum Rob Clouth). Expect to hear Atoms for Peace, Donato Dozzy, Tim Hecker, Nils Frahm, Vaetxh, several of Cooper’s own tracks and more.
- Vinyl Double LP (BAL023LP)
This album is what appears when numerous shades of jazz and improvisation are granted vocal narrative, then backed with smart beats and rhythms. These spontaneously created tracks defy many forms of compositional logic, yet feel natural and deeply addictive. Soulful, effortlessly groovy and singular work.

Remixes of Max Cooper’s grand full-length Emergence project, featuring a great array of producers. We’re talking Vessels, Rival Consoles, Christian Loeffler and more besides. Generally, the remixes take the original material’s IDM and push it into full dance floor territory, with superbly effective results. 12” EP on Mesh Records.
Created in collaboration with film composer Tom Hodge and vocalist Kathrin DeBoer, part scientific research, part audio visual art installation, Max Cooper’s ‘Emergence’ was conceived as an electronic soundtrack to an eleven piece video art project with each piece exploring the concept of ‘emergence’. Inspired by the cosmic mastery of Carl Sagan and the musical wonder of Sigur Ros, the result is a futurist odyssey into the possibilities of neo-classical techno.
- Vinyl Double LP (MESH001LP)
The second of two remix EPs for Max Cooper's debut album Human - this one bringing one of the album's most talked about tracks Impacts for the first time, with an acid rework by Pitchfork favourites Factory Floor and Perc's insane, obtuse and uncompromising abstract version.
This is also the first release of Harvey McKay's version of an earlier Max track, Von der Klippe Fallen - one long grinding techno beat that opens to the dramatic piano of frequent Max's collaborator Tom Hodge.
Hot off the heels of debut album Human, german house maestro Max Cooper drops the first of two remix EPs on the Fields label. The first 3 stepping up to the task are described by Max as "a few of my absolute favourite producers in the world". First up is Rodriguez Jr's deeper house take on sunset track Supine, followed by Lusine's rough, low-slung reworked groove of Woven Ancestry before closing with New York-based producer Jack Dixon's abrasive UK bass version of Automaton.
