After long years of work the author of unique and successful albums “Shallow and Profound” (2000) and “Splendid Isolation” (2005) is back with his new long-player, “Passive Control”, which is considered to be the third, closing part of the trilogy. “Passive Control” is another typical contradictory, multilayered Yonderboi title that can be explained in different ways. One of them refers to the constantly changing and unpredictable economical/social situation of today, which is witnessed by most of us inertly, hoping that this recession-thing “gets sorted out” soon. The album’s opening song “Sustainable Development” is an equally beautiful and sarcastic interpretation of this phenomenon, featuring the suggestive voice of Edward Ka-Spel – who can be familiar already from the previous album’s closing song “Even if you are victorious”.“Passive Control” could also describe the typical mindset that social networking sites create. You sign up, put yourself in the little showroom, and then you WAIT. Like fishing. Sometimes you throw in some bait, but secretly you hope that one day something unexpected will pull the other end of the line.”

And the above-mentioned method is not just a plain theoretic observation, as it was also used in practice. Actually, Yonder found the album’s female voice via myspace: the previously unreleased young German singer Charlotte Brandi. The goal was to create the sister-sequel of “Splendid Isolation”, so having female voice on the new album was of key importance. Like every Yonderboi record “Passive Control” is as well a diverse, story-like collection of songs, with a strong personal background. Even though the eleven songs are spread on a large-scale of styles, compared to the earlier works it is a bit less eclectic. Yonder produced and mixed the entire record alone in his Budapest home studio, the aim was to develop a more electronic and skeletonized version of his sound. The whole album has an elusive feel of utopia, which can be explained easily by Yonder’s love for science fiction ever since he was a kid. Jean Gireaud Moebius the legendary French comics artist, Russian sci-fi movie “Kin-Dza-Dza”, or Hungarian cult-film “Meteo” are just a few examples that inspired him during the making of “Passive Control”.

Sleep is a naturally recurring state characterized by reduced or absent consciousness. The Music of Naomi was always a sleeping beauty. Sleep is the third single from Naomis longplayer “The Big Shapes”.The overall sound of the album reminds one of… well, nothing else, really. Massive backbeats carry scratchy guitar riffs, buzzing synths cut through gentle electric piano lines as the Berlin duo digs deep into the pop vocabulary of the past four decades.

Here are some of our “Electronica Highlights” for autumn 2011 from the German artist Lemongrass, the Spanish chill out king Ohm-G, the Hungarian legend Yonderboi and the famous Praful from The Netherlands. The album from Praful “Pyramid In Your Backyard” was original released in 2005 – so it´s a ReRelease of a timeless and brilliant album:

Lemongrass – Sirius (Lemongrassmusic | Germany)
Sirius is the most luminescent star in the night sky. A light years away double-galaxy, considered as a mystical symbol by many ancient cultures. This is the chosen destination of Lemongrass’s new album. As usual Lemongrass’s range of drums and percussion is sticking out. Well for those who don’t know, Roland Voss is an educated drummer. Either as a cool down-tempo groove (Deep Blue), as a playful broken beat Jazz rhythm (Jazz Bandits) or just with a discrete Snare, the choice is always brought to the point. Hopefully Mr. Spock puts his intergalactic radio on once in awhile. It would be a pity if his Half-Vulcan ears would miss this “Sirius” expedition. Listen: Lemongrass – Sirius

Ohm-G – Hulectric Soul (Eivissabeat | Spain)
Olaf Gutbrod, aka Ohm-G, was fascinated the music for as long as he can remember. Music was and is magic for him. Olaf got his first guitar when he was 9 years old. From this moment on he knew that music was his life. Since 2004 Ohm-G is the resident DJ at Atzaró, one of the best locations for exquisite music and visuals in Ibiza, where he initiated also the Atzaró Lounge. The last 6 years Ohm-G focused on refining his sound, his production and his DJing. Before the new album “Hulectric Soul” he released five albums already as well as contribute tracks on well known Compilations like Cafe del Mar, Hotel Costes, Buddha Bar and other well known compilations. Listen: Ohm-G – Hulectric Soul

Yonderboi – Passive Control (Mole Listening Pearls | Hungary)
After long years of work the author of unique and successful albums “Shallow and Profound” (2000) and “Splendid Isolation” (2005) is back with his new long-player, “Passive Control”, which is considered to be the third, closing part of the trilogy. The whole album has an elusive feel of utopia, which can be explained easily by Yonder’s love for science fiction ever since he was a kid. Jean Gireaud Moebius the legendary French comics artist, Russian sci-fi movie “Kin-Dza-Dza”, or Hungarian cult-film “Meteo” are just a few examples that inspired him during the making of “Passive Control”. Listen: Yonderboi – Passive Control

Praful – Pyramid In Your Backyard (Therapy Recordings | The Netherlands)
To some electronica enthusiasts, it might seem like a contraction to describe Praful as a saxophonist who has some relevance to electronica. If electronica is all about synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, samplers, and the like, how can a saxman possibly have any relevance to electronica? So this is why it´s difficult to say exactly how “Pyramid in Your Backyard” should be categorized. It’s probably best to describe the release as a hybrid mixture of electronic club/dance grooves (including trip-hop, chillout, and ambient), pop-jazz, and world music.

The idea of an own label for electronic dance music has long been in the heads. After years as a musician, producer and sound engineer Marco Riemann wanted to create for himself and his producer friends a way to release their own music and promote themself. Finally the project starts with the beautiful name “imola”, a reference to the Italian roots of the label’s founder. In his luggage: a wide range of modern club music – psychedelic dub-techno, 4-to-the-floor beats and minimal house – everything, what touches the heart and goes to the Legs! Every act of the label “imola music” is producing “dance music” in his own way. Nevertheless, all united by a common artist passionate idea: The vision of modern and innovative club music in the young 21st century.The founder Marco Riemann, born in 1977 in Frankfurt (Germany), is living in Vienna (Austria) since 2007. He made his first experiences with electronic music at the age of 21. In these days he was experimenting in liaison with his buddy Sasa with use of synthesizers and sequences in order to create new sound textures. He could show his first success with the release of the EP named “Undefined Emotionz” on Steve Bug’s label Pokerflat – Recordings in the year 2000. Another EP release on Pokerflat named “Inflexible” was released in the year 2001. In the same year the release on Bellaphon of the remix of the track “Ficken” followed, the track was dedicated to his friend and musician Jürgen Reinecke aka Superflausch. At the same time Marco started to focus on his study of Electrical Engineering, he graduated as engineer in 2005. In 2007 he moved to Vienna as he got an engagement as acoustic engineer at a popular Austrian microphone & headphone company. The deep connection to electronic club-music remained. He continued producing music.
