Dandy Jack in der Zukunft

29. January 2011

Martin Schopf, aka Dandy Jack, is a musician and behind-the-scenes organizer in both Chile and Germany. In Santiago he created the Microman club together with Adrian Schopf (DJ Adrian), which apart from being a club, became a nucleus for many electronic events such as Encuentro de la Technocultura. Today he’s the head of Mutek Chile, the southern version of Canada’s famous electronic music festival.

As a musician he has released many individual projects such as Dandy Jack and the Cosmic Trousers in 1997, Dandy Jack and the Plastic Woman in 1998 – both on Ratherinteresting – Dandy Jack and the Latin Lava on Perlon, Dandy Jack and the Latin Elvis on Contexterrior.

Schopf has also worked in a number of musical partnerships including Sieg über die Sonne with Tobias Fruend, Carabina 30:30 with Luciano, Gon with Uwe Schmidt, Amp with Peter Namlook, Gonzalo Martinez with Jorge Gonzalez, Ric y Martin with Ricardo Villalobos and most recently Dandy Jack and the Junction SM with Sonia Moonear. Schopf is also involved in the live techno project Narod Niki alongside a rotating cast which includes Ricardo Villalobos, Monolake and Richie Hawtin.

Many of Schopf’s projects intensify the link between electronic music and Latin sounds and rhythms.
