Röyksopp

Röyksopp

Profile:
Norwegian electronic producer duo
Their name Röyksopp, derived from Norwegian "røyksopp", translates into English as "puffball" or "mushroom cloud". This type of mushroom is notable for the misty cloud created when it releases its spores.
There is also an obvious hallucinogenic double meaning to the name. Or perhaps a reference to the plume of smoke during an atomic explosion.
Also, "Eple" from the first album translates to English as Apple.

Next album will be called "The Inevitable End".. And yes, will be their last album.
But they wont split, they will continue to make music. They are just abandoning the album format.

Röyksopp are easily the best group I have ever heard! I first found out about their song "Happy Up Here" in 2011, and have been listening to their five albums ever since. What's more is that they helped me discover even more artists I like: Robyn, Trentemoller, Little People, Jarre, Kraftwerk, the list goes on forever! Röyksopp can take downtempo, synthpop, electro, house, and even just electronic screeching and make them sound awesome.

Interesting that here is only one review for a wonderful band. I have read the name very often but always passed them ... my luck. I think I can say these guys are already very established and I always thought I know a lot in music, so okay, stop writing blabla. I can definitely say that Röyksopp has taken me on the next level of ? music education ? soul reflection ? I don't know. I am overwhelmed by emotions, few minutes ago I've listened the first time to "Poor Leno" in Röyksopp's own Istanbul Forever Edit. I knew it before from an youtube video and couldn't wait to listen in a good audio quality. This is the song !!!!!!!!! More words would destroy the moment and the impression. Get their first two albums and be infected.

Definitely the band of my life.
The perfect alchemy between atmospheres and "electronicity", the ability of synthesize pure emotions in the notes of an arpeggio. Their tracks are all made of this, drops of pure electronica, like a hot chocolate for your deeper soul, it makes you feel SUCH better!!!..
I don't know how to describe these 2 norwegian guys and their music in human words: they're awesome, dreamy, catchy, groovy, absolutely new, experimental, rhytmically uncorrect but perfect. That's the genre i'd listen again and again, singing, crying and dancing. (but maybe i'm just crazy?)
Thank you Röyksopp for how you've struck the musical world with your ideas...keep on inventing.
