Biography

Machinepop is Jesper, normally composing tunes and writing lyrics for Tinúviel, a Tolkien-inspired electronic band.

Machinepop started the Easter of 2001 as a reaction to an interview with swedish EBM/industrial gurus Covenant. In that particular interview they mentioned that they created a track in two hours and cut out of the context this sounded stupid indeed.

With this in mind Machinepop composed, wrote, recorded and mixed two tracks in the following two days. The result resembled Telex and The Normal far more than Covenant, but that was also part of the plan.

The tracks became the debut demo CD-single which features “Minimal Man” and “Flicka Av Plexiglas”.

In 2002 Machinepop was approached by newly founded 4MG Records who planned a compilation of electronic music and wanted to include “Flicka Av Plexiglas”. The re-recorded version was called “Vocal Retake Remix” since it was exactly that.

An old idea which was discussed a few years earlier with ImiAFan of 4MG Records resurfaced. It was to make a split release with two tracks each and in February of 2006 the work on this was started. Stroboskop was already finished and as second track was the other already mind-composed track “Electronic Dream Plant” chosen.
