After the two musicians and producers Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland decided in 2014 that their fifth album "The Inevitable End" would be Röyksopp's last long player and they actually only released individual singles in the following eight years, the surprising turnaround occurred in 2022:

"Profound Mysteries" was not only a sixth Röyksopp album released at the end of April 2022 - at the same time, they announced that it was only the first part of a concept trilogy that would compositionally capture and sonically illustrate the state of the world and its humanity.

It is precisely this intense understanding of the mystical relationship between people, music and nature that characterizes Röyksopp's sounds and songs, which are now also reflected visually in 30 short films accompanying each track of the trilogy.

In the course of this massive album offensive, Röyksopp will then go on world tour again for the first time in over a decade and will also make a stop in Berlin for an exclusive Germany show on February 23, 2023.

The exclusive Germany show will be presented by Faze.

Review Röyksopp

The duo, founded in 1998 in Tromsø, can immediately convince with the release of their debut album "Melody A.M." throughout Europe - so all five singles released from the album immediately shoot into the Top 40 in the UK and also present themselves in Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and partly even in the USA with high chart quotations.

It is the beginning of a good decade in which Röyksopp advance from sound-aesthetic innovators to a globally celebrated top act in electronic music, with multimedia concert events that are among the most exciting of the entire genre.
Speaking of multimedia, every Apple user is likely to know at least one song by Röyksopp, as back in 2001 the corporation licensed their track "Eple" (Norwegian for "apple") as a welcome tune after the successful installation of their operating system.

But their dreamy, yet always driving sound was also well received in the traditional music world: two Grammy nominations and the winning of seven Spellemann prizes are wonderful proof of this. After the outstanding success of the first album, the two created four more fantastic and internationally successful albums until 2014.

What is special here - especially for a purely electronic act - is that they largely do without digital support in the production of their music, preferring to generate their sounds from analog, sometimes downright archaic old retro synthesizers.

On top of that, they invited a handful of interesting guest vocalists for each album to make their albums as heterogeneous and exciting as possible, including Anneli Drecker (Bel Canto), Erlend Øye (Kings of Convenience), Robyn and Lykke Li. Conversely, they delivered exciting remixes for many stars, including Coldplay, Peter Gabriel, The Streets or Roots Manuva.
