POPOF, from hardcore techno to worldwide notoriety
Alexandre Paounov aka POPOF is initially one of the founders of legendary French collective Heretik System. After personally and musically maturing throughout the years, exploring various different worlds, his notoriety exploded worldwide thanks to his minimal techno classics such as “Serenity” and “Do you Want Me”.
POPOF became a high-profile remixer, working with the likes of Depeche Mode or The Chemical Brothers. In 2015 POPOF released his first highly-acclaimed album, “Love Somebody”, on Jamie Jones’ imprint Hot Creations.
Today, POPOF juggles between his production career while heading his label Form Music. His new EP « Confusion », recently released in 2018 on Nicole Moudaber’s Mood records, has gone back to POPOF’s techno roots, sprinkled with Acid influences. His next EP « Enforced » is due to be released soon on Adam Beyer’s Truesoul label.
