There are currently 2 artists under the name of Blackfish. 1) Maximilian Lopp has been active in producing electronic music since 1992. In his early years he was very active in producing HipHop with local crews in the Frankfurt region. Later on, he re-focussed on trip-hop and clubmusic. Luckily for him the mid-nineties saw the awakening of Drum'n'bass in earnest. Maximilian developed his own approach to electronic music by primarily mixing elements of these three directions. He is former of Blackfish and Blackfish Productions as a music label as well as one of the producers of the music project “Attic tree” (known from the Brazilectro Compilations). With his alter ego “Blackfish” he produced two Longplayers. His debut album “Pole Navigation” has been released in 2001 on Konvex | Konkav and is named today as a real classic ambient/chillout album. In his solo project Maximilian focuses on earthy beats with a jazzy feeling. These beats are sometimes down-,sometimes uptempo but always create a warm and expressive atmosphere. It is hard to describe ML's music in a nutshell – just go and listen for yourself. The EP <“Rejection” on his label Blackfish productions marked the beginning of a successful series of EP's bringing Maximilian worldwide recognition and air play on big radio stations. His track ‘slow mo' entered several chill-out-charts around the world, i.e. beatport, i-tunes and trackitdown. His fourth CD-album “Disappear” – was released in 2008 on german label Toptrax. 2) Blackfish are a 5 piece original rock band from West Cornwall in the UK. They have been writing, gigging and recording together for several years, and their second album "The Undisputed King of Wednesday' is eagerly anticipated in the next few months.
