Dag Krister Volle (26 April 1963 30 August 1998), better known under the artistic name Denniz Pop (stylized Denniz PoP), was a Swedish DJ, music producer and songwriter.

Volle began as a DJ in the 1980s, started producing remixed records and later original releases, producing Dr. Alban's single "Hello Afrika" in 1990. With Tom Talomaa he started the Cheiron Studios on Kungsholmen in Stockholm in 1991, and the next year recruited Max Martin (Martin Sandberg) to the studio. In the following years he produced and wrote songs for several successful Swedish and foreign artists, including Ace of Base, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, N'Sync, E-Type, Rick Astley, Robyn and 5ive.

Death

In 1998, Dag died of stomach cancer at the age of only 35. The video to The Backstreet Boys' "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely" was dedicated to him. E-Type's album Last Man Standing commemorates Dag with a dirge, the final track PoP Preludium. Britney Spears dedicated her award for Best Song at the 1999 MTV Europe Music Awards.
