Who is …?
Jens Uwe Beyer is the founding member of all-star band ‘Cologne Tape’ and runs record label Magazine with bandmates Barnt and Crato. He has released several tracks on Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series and has worked in collaboration with Jaki Liebezeit as well as producing remixes for several labels, the latest being a Eurythmics and Brian Eno & Cluster track for German label Grönland.
Popnoname is Beyer’s alter-ego, one which, according to him: ‘Reflects my attitude towards life.’! He so far has three albums, the most recent ’50 °’ (2013) was released on his own label PNN. Popnoname’s creative dexterity has brought him world-wide recognition and he has performed live shows across the globe. His songs regularly feature in the sets of celebrated DJ’s such as Sven Väth and Michael Mayer.
Popnoname’s creative drive is best summed up by a line in his track ‘Touch: My beauty is my liberty’, a conviction that illustrates his unrelenting evolution as an artist.
Jens-Uwe Beyer can already look back on a number of live performances, e.g.: Mexico, Greece, Portugal, Serbia, Netherlands, Austria, Russia, Georgia, Germany, USA, Australia, Japan, France, Columbia, UK ….
