PRESENTED BY ANNIKA HAGEMANN

POPSHOP aka Martin Akeret was born in 1975 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Martin has been studying classic piano and jazz piano for a few years. In the year of 1992 he started his own label Poetenpop Records in 1997. From then he released his music using aliases such as Gary Rich, Drama or Drama Martini. Oliver Kapp, head of Indulge/Raygun (Hamburg) signed Popshop for his album «SALON BIZARRE» (2002). The album received N°1-Chart-Features in Germany, namely in De:Bug and in Groove. The following work «THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US» was also released with Raygun. Due to the good feedback, Popshop was invited for two live shows to Montréal (Canada) in 2004. The album «NEW BONES» appeared on the Swiss Alpinechic label followed by the Vinyl EP «Plaisir Noir» on Stattmusik (2008) and accompanied by a special highlight: The famous UK act Zoot Woman engages Popshop as their tour support for the Swiss gigs. Finally, «A WARM PLACE WITHOUT MEMORY» was another sophisticated album with the video clip of «Basic Life Support» which was selected for the best of at «CH-Filmszene» on television SF1. With the current work «VISUAL HEART BLOOD» Martin went new steps in 2013: He was collecting all the fancy video clips, making of films and trailers of the past years. The result was the release of a beautiful DVD/CD digipac album, distributed by Timezone Records, Germany. In these days, Martin is involved in interesting featuring projects such as songs and remixes for Dallan (Singer/Songwriter, CH), Doug Chamberlin (Chicago, USA) and Larissa Kapp (Hamburg, DE).
