OUT: Album 'Hasan Poppu' by Hasan Poppu
Hasan Poppu is a project by Jens-Uwe Beyer and Thomas Venker. It's a word creation that means broken pop music and is based on our deep soft spot for all things Japanese. Originally based on a special one-off live performance, Jens-Uwe Beyer and Thomas Venker got the idea to make a record out of the Japanese lyrics that Venker wrote and ended up producing six new tracks that also showcases a contribution of remixes from friends: YPY (Japan), Hibotep (Uganda), Lena Willikens (Berlin), Efdemin (Berlin) and Barnt & Jens-Uwe Beyer (Köln). So there we have it, an album consisting of eleven tracks that was conceived, offering a ride from dark, noise techno textures over hilarious moments of party ecstasy to outer-worldly vibes.
