You biography
German outfit YOU was formed when Udo Hanten (synths, sequencers, Mellotron) decided to end his tentative steps toward forming a solo career in 1978; and decided to work with Ulrich Weber (guitars, percussion) instead.

After recording a few tracks in 1978, the pair decided to record a full album, and with the inclusion of Albin Meskes (synths, sequencers, Mellotron) and Harald Grosskopf (drums, synths) they hit the studio again to create their debut album "Electric Day", issued in the fall of 1979.

This same line-up also recorded the next release, the EP "Scanner part 1 & 2" in 1981.

After this line-up changes were afoot, with Weber and Grosskopf leaving; leaving the duo of Hanten and Meskes - and this duo would be the only permanent mebers of this project further on.

In 1982 they hit the studio again, to make their second full-length album. Former member Weber made a guest appearance on this venture along with Helmut Brüker; and the finalized result was issued in June 1983, named "Time Code".

In December 1983 Hanten and Meskes hit the studio again; this time without guest musicians. Two months later their third album was completed, and was issued in the first half of 1984 as "Wonders From the Genetic Factory.

Late in 1985 You started recording what was to be their last album in this first phase of their existence. Featuring guest appearances from Jaime Zenamon and Klaus Gertken. "Laserscape" was made availble to the general public in April 1986.

Following this release Hanten and Meskes hooked up with former member Grosskopf to form the project "Central Europe Performance"; an outfit concentrating on live performances. In the just over 20 years this still existing project many musicians have been involved; with Hanten and Meskes as the core foundation of the outfit.

1995 saw a new addition to the discography of You, with the release of the multimedia production "00:1996:00", and the following year the 5 CD box compilation "Era" saw the light of day.

In 2000 You chose to change moniker, and opted for the use of Yourovion; and releases a fair number of albums of various kinds under that name.

In April 2009 Hanten and Meskes announced that they would return to their former moniker You, and that they'll herald the 30th anniversary of their debut album with a limited edition CD package names "The Electric Box".

— First review of this album —
2 stars 2.5 stars

The second half of the 80's were definitely not the best for German electronic artists. Most of them turned towards new-age or ambient, not always successfully. And what about YOU? Well, "Laserscape" is an unequal mixture of ambient music with reminiscences of the Berlin school approach and a touch of new-age. There are only a few moments with heavy-psych pulsating sequences and upbeats typical of the band.

The tracks were in fact recorded in 1985 as a soundtrack for German designer Horst H. Baumann's open-air laser performances.

The opener "Passing Landscapes" sets the tone by displaying an aerial intriguing atmosphere. "Can You Tell Me Where I Am" is clearly the best track of the record, as it's the one that most resembles YOU's previous material. Consisting in a quick sequence and cool drums over a melancholic soft synthesizer melody, this passage is quite nice and catchy. Back to ambient with "Changing Rooms", the longest composition of the disc. Apart from bizarre sounds and slight oriental sonorities, nothing really happens in 13 minutes.

"Travelling Hologram" incorporates various string instruments. Original but not featuring many changes, this threatening piece sounds more like a thriller movie soundtrack. The surprising "Scanned Noises" is in fact not especially noisy. Its pretty delicate acoustic guitar play contrasts with the menacing electronic mood. Interesting. Not much to say about the anecdotal repetitive "Curious Phenomena Part I". Part II concludes the record with long mysterious synthesizer textures.

The 21 minutes bonus track "Laserscape/Live" is a recording of the Philips Laserscape Krefeld show on August 31st, 1985, that was broadcasted by Berlin's SFB radio station.

YOU went adventurous and experimental for this 1986 album. It has its moments, but the music is definitely not the trippy style of "Electric Day" or "Time-Code". However, the German duo avoided the cheesy new-age temptation, which is a good point. "Laserscape" was conceived as a soundtrack, so it may require to be heard with the corresponding laser shows to be fully appreciated.

If you're into ambient electronic music with experimentations, you can give it a try.

3 stars Berlin School at the dawn of the eighties

First studio album by YOU, "Electric Day" is in the straight lineage of the 70's electronic Berlin School. The music is mainly based on trippy pulsating electronic sequences weaving hypnotic textures. The German duo adds however more rhythm, futuristic sonorities and upbeat percussions typical of this period. This is also partly due to the participation of Klaus Schulze collaborator and ASHRA member Harald Grosskopf at drums.

The title track features a fast frenetic loop over a dreamy soundscape, in the vein of KLAUS SCHULZE-meets-HELDON. Then comes the very nice "Magooba". A little softer piece, with distorted guitar solo and slight oriental touches, which can remind ASHRA at times. Back to rapid sequencing with the more rhythmic "Son Of A True Star". This average track is nonetheless a bit repetitive and does not contain many variations.

The short "Sequential Spectrums" parts are slow drone contemplative pieces. On the contrary, "Slow Go" is the longest track of the record. This composition is a lengthy electronic improvisation built around Grosskopf's drumming, and has therefore reminiscences of TANGERINE DREAM's "Madrigal Meridian" suite from their 1978 album "Cyclone". The ender "Zero-Eighty-Four" features mysterious strange sci-fi sonorities and sounds rather... bizarre.

For a first studio album, "Electric Day" is quite pleasant. The German duo is just beginning to develop its own musical identity here. In 1979, YOU were one of the only few bands to propose such quick sequenced hypnotic electronic music. Their elder brothers TANGERINE DREAM were still in their progressive rock period before they turned more melodic in the 80's, while KLAUS SCHULZE was changing direction.

Although uneven and not genuinely innovative, this first opus is very futuristic and spacey. Recommended to 70's sequenced electronic music lovers!

3 stars Final gasps of the seventies

The tail-end of the seventies was a confusing time musically. In many ways you could say that the progressive scene, be that the rock, electronic or both coupled up together - came together in a very homogeneous way that foretold the sonic soap operas of the impending decade. Music got slick and smooth, and a certain metallic and industrial tone had suddenly infected the different recording studios. The sounds of the synthesiser are testimony to this hypothesis of mine. Having spawned from the vibrant and vivacious drive masterly conveyed on classic electronic records such as Alpha Centauri and Blackdance - now those synths took on the very thing that people associated them with: Robots.

You is a fine example of this evolution. They produced their first album in 1979 with the gift of hindsight and the ability to choose from whatever slice of Germanic electro history they saw fit. With the add on of Harald Grosskopf, I guess the group naturally leaned towards that ever so floating Klaus Schulze universe. Remember Grosskopf played with Schulze on the Bodylove soundtrack as well as Moondawn. Still, like I said, the feel of the music is one of order and metal. The recording techniques had revolutionised themselves so as you finally could purchase an album without all of the inappropriate 'noise'... Needless to say(mostly because I keep saying this....) that I've always thought of noise as half of the music. Those ambient oscillations emanating from instruments that take up the invisible room of any recording are priceless and irreplaceable - but whatever you do - don't kill 'em.

Now whilst some sections on this debut album feel somewhat close to the great oceanic textures of the aforementioned electronic guru and pioneer, you also sense a devout and knowledgeable act that know their way around musicians like Moebius, Froese, Schnitzler and Hoenig. The one thing You manage to slap onto the proceedings here that set them slightly apart is speed. The first cut illustrates just how brilliantly and innovatively they do this - sounding like an amphetamine fuelled Berlin school track with a motorik groove that goes faster than anything else from the scene I've come across before.

Other than that, you are facing sequencers up the wazoo, the occasional mellotron as well as those soapy synths that pre-dated the whole 'new age' scene by a couple of years. Real acoustic drumming courtesy of Monsieur Grosskopf and last but not least: Edgar Froese guitar stylings, which incidentally just means David Gilmour butter fingers fondling up the odd guitar string now and again.

I think the tracks on this debut all are pretty good. I actually find some of them quite refreshing and successful, and I'll happily recommend this one to anyone seeking a way into the German electronic scene. I would think the combination of guitar and drums eases the rock fiend's relentless cravings.

If you enjoy the late 70s electronic scene - the moment before the wave broke and flooded the lands with plastic and marshmallow antics, then you should probably take a chance on this recording. Sure, you get a lot of the usual sonic suspects, but there is a charm and warmth to some of these cuts that are as welcome and innovative to the scene as a metallic elbow on your forehead, yet somehow this thing works. 3.5 stars.

Wonders From The Genetic Factory
You Progressive Electronic

Review by Modrigue
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Third opus by YOU, "Wonders From The Genetic Factory" was released in 1984. The music is more joyful than in the former albums and rather unequal. Yet, the overall is still good.

So let's begin with the bad apples: the opener, "Axis", sounds really dated and seems to have no point, whereas "Sampling Dance" is an useless pre-house exercise. This said, the other tunes are rather good. "Isotopic Moments" has some nice floating guitar and "Europe Transfer" some reminiscences of TD's "Tangram". One of the most efficient track here is the robotic "Future Generation"; the duo is truly in his territory here. But the highlight of the disc is of course the 24 minutes long "Yourovision". The song contains many changing themes and rhythms, slow moments and dreamy sequencer passages. "Koyaanisqatsi Xmas" is a lengthy bonus live track in which the band plays its favorite themes, mostly sequencer driven. A welcomed addition.

With "Wonders From The Genetic Factory", YOU searches new ideas in the evolving landscape of the 80's, but with no significant novelties. Anyway, an enjoyable album for Berlin electronic school fans.

Time Code
You Progressive Electronic

Review by Modrigue
Prog Reviewer

4 stars "Time Code" is the second album by YOU and the probably their best. As an electronic German band born in the late 70's, they were much influenced by their elders. Recorded in 1982, released in 1983, the material is the lines of what TANGERINE DREAM was doing at this period with Johannes Schmoelling. Yet, the music is slightly more melodic, with a touch of KRAFTWERK-ian synthetic rhythms.

YOU's various influences are clearly exposed in the first half of the album. The first two tracks, "Time Code" and "Future/Past" are rather robotic and cold (special mention for the dreamy ending of this song), with patterns in the vein of KRAFTWERK's "Showroom Dummies". "20/11/28" and "Deep Range", are cosmic and meditative, whereas "Taurus-Fantasia" sounds like an old-fashioned oriental electronic sound. The second half of the disc oscillates between calm passages and fast sequencer-driven moments. The highlight here is undoubtedly the mini-epic "Live Line", where the duo fully demonstrates its talent and variety. The record ends with "Zone Black", ambient and mysterious.

In conclusion, YOU offers with "Time Code" enjoyable quality tunes in the direct legacy of the Berlin school. Nothing revolutionary, but a very good acquisition for 70's sequenced electronic music lovers!

Thanks to Bilek for the artist addition. and to windhawk for the last updates
