Green Day – Father of all… Review

This is a review of the single. I’ve also written a review of the whole album. I’m a huge Green Day fan since Dookie. Listened to every album, loved especially Dookie, Nimrod and American Idiot. They’ve written some great songs (such as Ashley or Troubled Times) since their biggest hit albums, but their albums haven’t … Read more

Traveling alone – How unpredictability rejuvenates The lone wanderer

Jag reser gärna ensamdet har kommit med årenMan blir så trött av allt pratav att tolka språken Translates to something along these lines: “I like to travel aloneit has come with the yearsOne gets so tired of all the … Read more

Why I vlog

The biggest reason for me to vlog is to make my endeavours, skills, vision and style visible, so that the people who are interested in listening to Unzyme’s music or doing any kind of business with us, know who they’re dealing with. And in the process, hopefully convince some new people that it’s worth their … Read more

Song dissection: Universal constructor

This is Unzyme’s only released instrumental track. There are many unreleased instrumentals on my hard drive, waiting for a suitable opportunity to get released. Override was supposed to start off with an instrumental piece, which was heavily influenced by Röyksopp, but the song never got finished. I might still release that at some point. Movement … Read more

PLGRMS – Daylight Review

I stumbled upon the music of PLGRM via Warner Music Germany’s Facebook page. The snipped they posted was catchy enough for me to seek the song on Spotify. Daylight‘s video is directed by Peter Majarich, and I think it suits the song perfectly. The best videos make the song sound even better, and this is … Read more

MacBook Pro overheats in the sun

I use a MacBook Pro 2018 to write my music, using Ableton Live. Apple does many things right, but cooling the laptop isn’t one of them. Today I noticed a significant decrease in the laptop’s performance. I closed almost all the apps, but the problem wouldn’t go away. Processor clock speed was definitely throttled down … Read more

Rammstein – Radio review

I’ve listened to Rammstein since Mutter, but at some point I kind of got bored of their music, since it didn’t seem to evolve much. And while these new songs (Deutschland and Radio) have got a very good grip and they’re from the better end of the Rammstein spectrum, they’re still rewriting that same song … Read more

Ava Max – So Am I (Review)

I appreciate melodies that move a lot. This song is full of such melodies. There are nice hooks everywhere, and Ava Max’s vocal performance is spectacular. I actually heard the Majestic Remix of this song first, and while I first thought it was rather boring, because there wasn’t too much movement in the remix, but … Read more

Where are the choruses?

Modern electronic pop songs rarely have big choruses. They only have some cut’n’paste instrumental pieces where the chorus used to live. I think it’s boring! I think artists aren’t trying hard enough. I find it really hard to get excited about such lame excuses for a chorus. I certainly try to write choruses that are … Read more

Ellie Goulding – Sixteen Review

In 2014, Unzyme’s producer Lasse Turunen recommended Ellie Goulding‘s Figure 8 to me. I had, of course, heard the massive hit Burn from the same album. Burn is a fantastic track with a great arrangement and superb production, and it’s hard to beat. Figure 8, is among Ellie’s best work in my book. The verse … Read more

Infected Mushroom – Electro Panic (One Function remix) Review

The original version of Electro Panic was released in 2004 on Digital Collusions and Analogue Intrusions compilation. It’s a collaboration between Yahel and Infected Mushroom. It’s a rather minimal trance piece with a heavy emphasis on acid bass synths and distorted, rhythmic synth riffs. The riffs and the energy of the track are the best … Read more
