A sonic journey to the beautiful darkside, Mondkopf’s ‘Day Of Anger’ EP merges futuristic electronica with classical elements to create a powerful, melodic and slightly gothic work of art.

Defying tradition, in 2009 Mondkopf imposed himself as a French electronic revelation with his debut album ‘Galaxy Of Nowhere’. Critical acclaim included a comparison to Brian Eno by Les Inrocks, as well as artistic parallels to Apparat, Modeselektor and Moderat. He remixed Caribou, The Teenagers, Black Devil Disco Club, Golden Filter, Johnny Cash and picked up the ears of DJs including Agoria, Busy P, Boys Noize and James Zabiela in the process… His ‘Galaxy of Nowhere’ Live show also began to tour… voted in the top five Live shows of 2010 by Tsugi Magazine in France.

In 2011, and at still only 24, Mondkopf’s second album ‘Rising Doom’ is ready. Inspired by post-punk, black metal, and with the music of Aphex Twin and Autechre always in his head, the album displays an energy du force like no other. Merging sound and vision, he has also collaborated with multimedia design agency, Trafik, to conceive a Live show experience for both the ears and eyes; black and white tension immerses, igniting the sensation of rave parties, exorcism and a mystical experience…

A preview show was held at La Gaite Lyrique in Paris in April - http://liveweb.arte.tv/fr/video/Mondkopf_a_la_Gaite_Lyrique/

Ahead of Mondkopf’s second album ‘Rising Doom’, the ‘Day Of Anger’ is a four track EP released on Limited Edition CD only. The CD includes a 16-page booklet of image and word inspirations for the making of ‘Rising Doom’.
