Frankfurt-based producer Anthony Rother presents Popkiller II, the follow-up to 2004's Popkiller. After freeing himself from his last remaining existing constraints, Rother re-designed his website and turned Datapunk into an exclusive outlet for his own material. Where the musical journey will go in the future is revealed by "Big Boys," a track in a rocky electro style that has already united the pop world with the club world in an innovative way with the Popkiller sound of 2004. And yet somehow, Rother manages to not only tie in the ten songs with the Popkiller spirit, but to also breathe new life into his aesthetic. The first song "Night" is already a link and constitutes the counterpoint to Popkiller's predecessor "Day," at the same time. Similarly, instrumentals such as "Cinema," "Skyline" and "Gates" reflect Rother's musical range from sci-fi to abstract techno in an exceptionally diverse way. However, what makes Popkiller 2 distinctive on the underground music scene are its vocal-centric themes such as "Rotation," "Mother" (as a follow-up to the Popkiller hit "Father") or the dramatic "Grab Your Life." Practically vocoded unfiltered, Rother goes all out with his vocals once again and convinces with melodic tracks full of emotion, raw beauty and irrepressible energy. Completely self-determined and artistically concentrated once again, with Popkiller 2 we are the ear-witnesses to an Anthony Rother who once again produces music that is fully free.
