Mole Listening Pearls artist Yonderboi won for the third time the “Fonogram Award” for the “Best Electronic Production”. After wining previously the trophies for “Shallow and Profound (2000)” and “Splendid Isolation (2005)”, Yonderboi got also the price for his current third album (and closing part of the trilogy) “Passive Control” by the Hungarian Music Industry. “Passive Control” 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 for his inspirations during the production of “Passive Control”. The album was released in Hungary in cooperation with CLS Music.
