Max Cooper

Human

FIELDS

Released: 10th March 2014 | 11 track techno album

Max Cooper will release his highly anticipated debut album Human on FIELDS on 10 March.

It's the work of a watchful outsider in wide-screen observation mode, and an album whose structure builds in a way reminiscent of life: your personality woven from your biological ancestry, but that biology makes death inevitable. Or, to put it another way, the album presents a life in three distinct, unpredictable sections, from the blank slate of Adrift in the first days of life to the melancholy optimism that others will continue when you're gone that is Daybreak.

An explosive leap into the full-length format, Human is also the debut of one of the most respected producers in electronic music. Resident Advisor has three times named Cooper one of their top live acts or DJs, while also comparing his work to Goreki and Glass, and Beatport named him one of its top 10 artists of 2013. He's lovingly reworked several key players in the contemporary classic performance scene including Michael Nyman, Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and Tom Hodge, as well as transforming the work of huge indie stars like Hot Chip, Au Revoir Simone, BRAIDS, and FC Kahuna's classic Hayling into downtempo, meditative masterpieces of glitch, beats and fragility.

Like humanity itself, the album Human is a murmured conversation where the artist reaches out to the listener to give them reassurance, comfort, and shock.
