ISOLÉE – WELL SPENT YOUTH
Release Date: February 28th, 2011
The wait is finally over: after six years, Isolée will release his third album on Pampa Records. Well Spent Youth drops February 28th, 2011 and once again showcases Rajko Müller’s talent as an exceptionally visionary producer.
No one sounds like Isolée. Not even close. The name says it all: one-of-a-kind.
Over the last 15 years, Isolée has managed to create a breathtaking trademark sound. Every note seems lovingly scavenged from the depths of his analogue equipment pool, then polished and woven into an abstract, otherworldly, always morphing yet still binding and bouncing sound composition of epic proportions. Well Spent Youth is a chameleon; it assumes different forms depending on the volume it’s played. Tunes like “Taktell,” “Thirteen Times An Hour,” “Hold On,” “One Box” and “Celeste” set the club on fire, quickly spreading the unique, indescribable Isolée vibe, which imbues the often cold, bleak dance floor with a unique, clever colour. The collective joy at being challenged is ubiquitous. People dance to Isolée’s music with their eyes closed – opened every now and then only to exchange knowing nods.
But it’s an equal pleasure to play this album at home on your living room system. Especially when you feel sick and useless, unfit for anything other than the contemplation of your screwed-up life. Throw on the record and let the sound reach out a warm, safe hand, pull you out of the whole damn mess.
In 1998, Isolée achieved a timeless stroke of genius with “Beau Mot Plage” (Playhouse), which enchanted listeners across genres and the world, pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music further than they’d ever been pushed before. This was followed by two highly acclaimed albums on Frankfurt label Playhouse, Rest and We Are Monster, along with numerous remixes for artists like Recloose, Blaze, Franz Ferdinand, Roy Davis Jr., Tiga, Alter Ego and International Pony, to name a few.
Now, Isolée reminds us yet again what electronic music is capable of – crossing boundaries and achieving the psychedelic! Pampa is happy to bring this latest album to the world. Though if we’re honest, the very best part is: we get to be friends with Rajko!
