Originally from Santiago de Chile, Martín Schopf chose to relocate himself in Germany at the end of the 80s, and since then he's been submerged in the world of techno. Eclectic and versatile, Schopf aligns himself with multiple projects and collaborations. Martin has released on a number of labels like Pod (under the name Gon), Geometrik, Fax, and Perlon, and he has participated in projects like Ric y Martin (alongside Ricardo Villalobos), Sieg Über Die Sonne (with Pink Elln), and Carabina 30:30 (with Luciano). Not only known for his mastery of electronic composition, above all Dandy Jack reveals a strong improvisational sensibility in his live performance, as he revealed alongside Ricardo Villalobos and Uwe Schmidt at MUTEK 2002, and as part of the Narod Niki collective at MUTEK 2003.With his collaborator Sonja Moonear, Schopf came up with Los Siete Castigos a voluptously minimal album in which Latin and 'funky house' influences come together in a luxurious, elegant sound—hence justifying the 'Dandy' in his name—which explodes into thousands of discrete details reverberating in the ears.
