“Scis is constantly in motion and sucks you into an uncategorizable, constantly changing groove. It is all the more impressive that Markus Popp never loses the thread in a second (...). This three-quarters of an hour you just rush through, it leaves you completely satisfied - and flabbergasted in a way that is not quite understandable.”
"Oval’s Markus Popp is one of the few electronic artists to provide a strong challenge to Aphex Twin and Autechre’s well-guarded thrones, producing work that lives in the same world of digitalist sound collage and electronic portraiture."
"Scis doesn’t feel like a 2020 album but only because it doesn’t feel like it belongs to any time at all really; like the other greats of the electronic music field, it feels like it could be picked up and put on decades hence and still feel like a record out-of-time, arriving from some world where they measure days by some other dimension."
