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".

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 inequal. 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. Other tunes listen rather well. Isotopic Moments has some nice floating guitar and Europe Transfer some reminiscence of TD's Tangram. One of the most efficient track here is the robotic Future Generation; the duo is truely on his land here. But the highlight of the disc is of course the 24 minutes long Yourovision. The song contains many changing themes and rythms, 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 landspace of the 80's, but, with no significant novelties. Anyway, an enjoyable album for german electronic school fans.

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 rythms.

YOU's various influences are clearly exposed in the first half of the album. The first two first 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 undoubtly 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 revolutionnary, but a very good acquisition for 70's sequenced electronic music lovers !
