Max Cooper has forged a unique position for himself as an artist mixing emotional dance floor experimentation with fine art sound design & stunning visuals.
Born in 1980 and raised in Belfast, Cooper has spent the better part of the last decade crystallizing his complex yet melodic techno sound, since his impressive run of singles dating back to 2007. In terms of musical references, Cooper has cited Jon Hopkins, Sigur Rós and Ólafur Arnalds, adding that his influences are "mainly electronica more than techno".
Even so, by 2012 he was voted in the top 20 live acts of the year for two years running on Resident Advisor and named a Beatport artist of the year. Max has also collaborated with contemporary classical composers Michael Nyman and Nils Frahm, while his BBC’s long-running Essential Mix series both showcased his excellent curatorial taste.
