Boytronic - Jewel CD

Style: Electropop. First new album by ‘80s Electro legend (‘You’) in over 10 years! Launched in 1983, Boytronic were among the most important and most successful German electronic acts of the 1980s and ’90s, scoring several hits recorded by different line-ups and their most popular single release ´You`, which stayed in the German and international top 10 for 8 weeks. Over the years Boytronic brought out almost a dozen albums and more than 20 singles. The lead single to be released from their new album Jewel will be called ´Mad Love` and features a magical electronic sound, a pulsating beat and hypnotic vocal lines that could hardly be more typical of Boytronic. A varied stylistic range manifests itself on Jewel, which features several songs that go beyond the scope of typical electronic pop songs. ´The Universe` for example is very special, much more than a simple pop number but a veritable little opus with highly original arrangements. The slow ´Dark Passion` with its enigmatic musical note also stands out, as does ´New Year’s Day`, a cover version of U2’s hit. “We came up with the idea spontaneously at the studio,” says Lewerentz. “Ingo, James and I were jamming away when suddenly James joined in our chord harmonies with the ‘New Year’s Day’ chorus. We looked at each other in surprise and decided: Might as well have a go at the original.”There can be no doubt: Jewel is a very special album in the history of Boytronic, musically as well as in terms of its lyrics! To cut a long story short: Boytronic are back! Jewel is a new beginning as well as the continuation of the success story so far and could hardly have turned out more multi-colored and impressive!
