Influenced by organic and synthetic textures of various music cultures, Miloopa has developed its sound towards unique mix of live and electronics . Named after a popular baby food in the 80-ties, Miloopa doesn’t put a limit on the creativity : The 2005 debut album NUTRITION FACTS includes guest vocals by mc Blu Rum 13 (Dj Vadim, Kid Koala, Luke Vibert) and Miloopa’s tasty 2006 EP Come’n’get me was packed in a real meat-can!
The second studio album UNICODE (2008) was Miloopa’s first collaboration with Roli Mosimann , who’s credits go to Faith No More (”Album Of The Year”), JoJo Mayer & Nerve , The Young Gods, The The, Bjork, Smashing Pumpkins, Einstuerzend Neubauten, New Order, The Swans, Wiseblood among others). Unicode serves a rich palette of sounds from Breakbeat, Drum’n’bass, Jungle, Dubstep to Soul and Downtempo moods. Guest appearences on the album inlcude Tom Fronza on didgeridoo and Ganesh Anandan on percussion and throat singing.
The approach on the third album OPTICA released on 26.11.2011 brakes down many barriers of pop, rock, soul, world and electronic music. Miloopa diffracts all influences creating it’s own exciting and hypnotizing musical space.The organic nature of OPTICA draws a picture of a band with no boundaries with great ability to condense multi-colored shadows of many musical styles. Forward thinking is without a question the most noticable element as Miloopa goes into different directions at the same time. The band’s optics have been yet again focused on real analog instruments used to apply modern electronic ideas. The cooperation with swiss producer Roli Mosimann has been a big factor for Miloopa’s distinctive – one of a kind – studio live sound. OPTICA has also become a ground for new collaborations with abstract hip-hop pioneers Anti Pop Consortium and norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset.
Since 2001, Miloopa has played numerous venues, tours and major festivals throughout Europe incl. Sziget, Creamfields, Fete De La Musique Luxembourg, Be2gether, United Islands of Prague, Open’er , Green Valley, Summer of Music , Szene Lustenau, performed in Great Britain, France, Holland, Sweden, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Luxembourg …
