Sweet Trip's third album was a significant departure from their earlier releases, which were all quite different from each other to begin with. Their debut full-length was an intriguing mixture of space rock, ambient techno, and drum'n'bass, with elements of pop submerged throughout, and two subsequent EPs expanded on their dance influences. This all led up to 2003's astounding Velocity : Design : Comfort, a staggeringly futuristic fusion of glitchy IDM, shoegaze, and synth pop that was so ahead of its time that it took more than a decade to find a devoted cult audience. Before that happened, though, they released You Will Never Know Why, a more streamlined indie pop record than anything they'd done to that point (relatively speaking). The glitchy effects that helped define Velocity's aesthetic are nearly absent, and it would even be a stretch to call this a shoegaze album, as the group sparingly use wall-of-sound guitars here. The arrangements are sometimes reminiscent of Stereolab's more progressive pop moments, commingling bits of bossa nova, psychedelia, and space age pop, and a few tracks are more intimate and folky, with acoustic guitars and hand drums. While less frenetic and future-shocked than the band's prior work, the songs themselves are much more emotionally direct, dealing with frustration, loneliness, and hopelessness. The album's most memorable hooks (particularly "I will never fall in love again" and "you will drift away") express feelings of disenchantment, loss, and regret, but the melodies are often upbeat and vibrant, and the jaunty "Pretending" encourages listeners to follow their dreams before their time on this planet is through. "Your World Is Eternally Complete" offers a similar message of affirmation and invigoration even though life is challenging, demonstrating the band's positive yet realistic outlook. Final track "Female Lover" (unlisted on the original CD's minimalist packaging) is a bubbly, Krautrock-ish instrumental that seems like a throwback to the group's early EPs, making for a fun, fizzy, carefree conclusion to a poignant, occasionally heartbreaking record. Though not as sonically envelope-pushing as their second album, You Will Never Know Why is easily the most accessible entry in Sweet Trip's pre-hiatus discography, containing some of the most affecting, relatable material they've ever written.

DJ-Kicks: the Compilation that Redefined Electronic Music

"DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series ever." It was Mixmag, the English reference magazine for electronic music that wrote it. It's hard to deny it: since 1995, the German label !K7 has been making flawless albums with more than 60 volumes by entrusting its mixes to leading artists. Pioneer of the genre at a time when this art form was not widely known, the label succeeded in introducing the mix outside of the clubs while popularising electronic music with the general public.

Nordic Electronic in 11 Artists

The musicians of Northern Europe have always brought their personal Arctic twist to all genres of music, and the world of electronic music is no exception. Here’s an overview of 11 Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish artists who have taken techno, house, disco and dub towards new horizons.

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.
