INFO: While sitting in the computer lab at Knox College in rural Illinois, 18-year-old Daniel Kuypers (aka Copperpot) realized that he could buy plane tickets on the internet. A couple trips back home to Chicago and a few trips to the dean later, Copperpot was out of school and on a plane to Europe with no cash, one change of clothes and several shiny new credit-cards. He traveled around the world listening to music, eating regional delicacies, partying with follow hip hop lovers and collecting records while Visa kept sending bills to an address in rural Illinois. In Early 2000 after his globe-trotting, where he amassed serious debt, Copperpot returned to Chicago and to his MPC 2000xl. He has since become a noted Chicago producer with a very unique style. His creativity and international flavor produce a sound that appeals to a wide group of listeners from many genres including Electronic, Dance, Alternative, and Rap.
