Hyperpotamus is a London, United Kingdom-based multi-vocal solo artist from Madrid, Spain. He makes music using only his voice, a few microphones and a loop pedal. Rehearsing his act in the underground tunnels of Madrid's metro stations, Hyperpotamus confounded unsuspecting passers-by. Before long he was opening at more conventional venues for local bands and the Hyperpota-buzz kicked off in Madrid and soon after, the whole country. Only six months after his first fling at busking Hyperpotamus was playing in front of thousands of people all over Spain. In 2009 he self-released his astounding debut album Largo Bailón and has barely had time to draw a breath since.

Hyperpotamus has played on the banks of the Danube, under a staircase in Amsterdam, at a squat in Berlin, a macro-discotheque in Lisbon, a railway station in London, a cruise ship in the middle of the Mediterranean, a flower shop in Paris, a Soviet People's Palace in Bratislava, a saloon in Texas, Ceacescu's Palace in Bucharest, a civic centre in Tijuana, under an organ pipe in Belfast, surrounded by skyscrapers in Los Angeles, at a retirement home in Bilbao, in a cave in Andalusia and in New York’s oldest bar, as well as more conventional festivals, SXSW, NXNE, Primavera, The Big Chill, BAM, Wilsonic, Bratislava Jazz Days. In addition Hyperpotamus has penned the soundtrack to a documentary on schizophrenia, the award winning Paquita y Todo Lo Demás, has covered Sonic Youth's Bull in the Heather, in front of Sonic Youth, is officially the Iberian Boss Loop Station Champion of 2010 and has opened for such diverse acts as Animal Collective, Scorpions, Two Gallants and Buck 65. Hyperpotamus makes use of his one-man-band status to spread the word in the most extraordinary and remote places on earth. Unmindful of trends or pose, he continues to make headway through the sheer might of his music, relying on nothing more than heart, sweat and joie de vivre. A spectacle not be missed, Hyperpotamus will spare you the tedium of revisiting the usual stage antics. Hyperpotamus' new album Delta is released by El Molino on 2012. http://www.hyperpotamus.com Read more on Last.fm.
