"The house that Jack Kerouac built! Popnoname is the project of 27-year-old Jens-Uwe Beyer from Cologne. Known for his earlier releases on Kompakt and Firm, he is now celebrating his debut on Italic with a techno 12" maxi release. Popnoname's productions vary between traditional Cologne techno ('On the Run'), Border Community ('On the Run'), Sound Signature aesthetics in style of Howard Thomas or Isolee ('Ferry Sponge') and the Cologne definition of singer/songwriter techno referring to The Bionaut ('Wonder You'). Popnoname is part of a group of young techno producers and DJs that can be considered as Cologne's 'beat generation' of techno music. Apart from Popnoname, there is also Skua Lovelle, Ansorge and the photo/art magazine 'Public Folder' edited by John Harten. What they all have in common is their interest in literature, photography, art, theatre and music resulting in a redefinition of Cologne techno in a broader sense. Highly recommended for all fans of lush, ravishingly beautiful techno."
