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.For more information, please visit: Yonderboi artist page

Yonderboi – Passive Control (Mole Listening Pearls)
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”.

Zagar – Never The Same (Mole Listening Pearls)
From the heart of the thriving Eastern European electronica scene, prolific Hungarian five-piece Zagar present an EP of exclusive remixes courtesy of cutting-edge artists Cottonmouth, Miami Kidz, Demon Superior, AMB and Yesman. It is the latest innovative flourish from a band that has built a reputation for combining powerful hit-driven tracks with cinematic moods- a recipe for deliciously atmospheric records and astonishing live shows. This latest EP is something of an evolution of creativity, with each collaborator taking the anthemic sound of ‘Never The Same’ and moulding it into new, exciting shapes each step of the way. Whether it’s the irresistible dubstep breaks introduced by Cottonmouth, the summery pop vibe of Demon Superior’s re-working or the spacey wonky beat track by AMB, it really is a fine demonstration of the incredible scope of musical possibility. Beside this, Zagar have become one of the most sought out acts at festivals and clubs across Europe. Performing since 2001, they have performed in ten different countries which has also seen them sharing a stage with Depeche Mode on their Tour of the Universe in 2009.

In the Vogue November issue you can find a review about the new Yonderboi album. The song “Paint hunting on the wall” is also @ the November Playlist at position #5.
“Electronic, not as we know it. Yonderboi is the name of the Hungarian-born musician László Fogarazi after a character in the novel “Neuromancer”. And also his music sounds like grounded from the parallel world of a novel. Dance beatsare presented in an elegant, almost old European way, crossed by wistful songs of female voices. A remix of archaic culture, romantic and utopian elements”. (Vogue Germany, November 2011)

On their second album entitled “Cannot Walk Fly Instead”, they mix cosmic electronic tunes with psychedelic prog-rock while sometimes using church choir elements and quotes from movies to merge the past and the future in a surrealistic way. For the song “Wings of Love” they invite on top six of the most popular independent female singers from Hungary (The Underground Divas). The concept of the album is a kind of exodus from the stereotypes of cosmopolitan urban living, delving into the mysteries and spiritual experiences of the 21st Century Man. They try to convey their imaginations with simple regular issues as solitude, desire for love, nostalgia or vanity. The title “Prophet Is A Fool” is already a small foretaste of the exciting new album by Zagar. More information: Zagar – Cannot Walk Fly Instead

Apple opened the iTunes store in Hungary on the 29th of September 2011 and the first album which directly entered the pool position @ the iTunes album charts was the new album from Yonderboi called “Passive Control” on the label Mole Listening Pearls. “Passive Control” also entered the official Hungarian album charts on position # 5. Thank you Laszlo for your great new album!

itunes-charts-hungary-1.jpg
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.”

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.
