Man, this post is SO long overdue but it needs to be done! Röyksopp, one of my favorite electronic acts coming out of Norway. Torbjørn Brundtland (left) and Svein Berge (right) have been making fantastic electronic music that ranges from down-tempo lo-fi chillout lounge music to quick paced synths and high tide beats. Your ambient and relaxed night-in can turn into a state of absolute dance induced inebriation with each track change. After nearly four years since their last LP, Röyksopp return with a fire with their wonderful bubblegum electric single “Happy Up Here” off Junior to be released March 23rd. They’ve also premiered their video for this song a while ago and it is simply AMAAZZZING!


Nothing Röyksopp does fails to impress me. Melody AM (2001) and The Understanding (2005) have become nearly unplayable on my disc player from having been looped countless and innumerable times. Finally, the wait is over! A loooong wait indeed. This year is fantastic for artists coming out of their long hiatuses…and I heaaaarts it!
