Tropisch Verlangen

"A techno-nature synthesis for an East-West confrontation / a musical travelogue from a Dutch musician searching for inspiration in the East in the early 80s.

"After travelling to India, Indonesia, Thailand, Bali and Java in his younger days, Cybe released three cassette tapes. Tropisch Verlangen now compiles a series of ten wonderful handcrafted analogue electronics from those tapes, sounding like lush fields of electronic wheat swaying in voltage controlled wind. It reads as a musical travelogue from a Dutch musician from Haarlem, who listened to way too much Gong and went searching for inspiration, sound recordings and instruments in the East in the early eighties. Right up my alley, and hopefully yours too." - Stroom

Stroom at it again, this time with "a musical travelogue from a Dutch musician from Haarlem, who listened to way too much Gong and went searching for inspiration, sound recordings and instruments in the East in the early eighties". It's (faux-?)oriental synth-pop pitched perfectly been the twee and the acutely psychedelic. The instrumentation and arrangements, and the moments of sublime melodic flight that they give rise to, stand comparison with peak Sakamoto and Hosono. It exudes a playful inquisitiveness throughout, but this seems to be underscored with a heavy loner vibe - what exactly was Cybe running from?
