Popkan

image Born in the same city thats known for its hot dogs and house music, Thomas Erdmann aka Popkan has been quietly putting together an archive of brilliance. Through his careful and intelligent drum structuring, Popkan dares to go where few have gone before. Combining bits, bleeps, squeaks and anything else imaginable, Thomas creates a hybrid of glitch, dub, acidfunk and minimal madness.

 

 Through his careful and intelligent drum structuring, Popkan dares to go where few have gone before. Combining bits, bleeps, squeaks and anything else imaginable, Thomas creates a hybrid of glitch, dub, acidfunk and minimal madness. Equipped with an arsenal of gear and a buck-wild stage presense, the Popkan PA makes for a truly electrifying live performance. He began taking an interest to electronic dance music after witnessing Green Velvet and others at local underground parties on Chicago’s south side. He then became obsessed with techno and house music in its simplest, underground form.

“I started making electronic music when I was 16,” he says. “It wasn’t until I witnessed an awe-inspiring live performance by Matthew Herbert that changed everything. It was something totally different from what I was used to seeing in Chicago.”

The sky’s the limit, there’s no telling what this man will do next.
