OPER ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM HUMAN, STREAMS FIRST SINGLE ADRIFT

"A religious experience .. a master at blending blissed-out, lightweight textures with moments of heavy darkness" - Earmilk

"A quiet elegance that's unique to the genre" - XLR8R

"Recalls Philip Glass, Aphex Twin's most serene moments and even Henryk Gorecki's Symphony No. 3" - Resident Advisor

"Some of the more ambitious and exploratory music crafted within the last few years" - The Music Ninja

"Envelope-pushing, hypnotic live sets" - Société Perrier

"One of today's most innovative electronic musicians" - DJZ

"Electronic genius" - A Strangely Isolated Place

Max Cooper will release his highly anticipated debut album Human on FIELDS on 10 March 2014.  The album represents an explosive leap into the full-length format for an artist who previously preferred to work in miniature, and a stubborn unwillingness to play the usual electronic music game of copy-me-if-you-can.

Adrift is the first single.  Combining the smoky vocal soundings of Belleruche's Kathrin deBoer with some of Max's most delicate percussion and sound design yet, Adrift pushes Cooper's melancholy style to whole new territories of starkly elegant beauty.  With a surprisingly heavy, epic Raffertie remix - and a video that shoots deBoer into space - Adrift is out Dec 16.
