A 26 Track Tour Of Swiss Beats

By Andrew Belonsky

Considering Switzerland's famous neutrality, you may expect the nation's music scene to be equally tranquil. It's not. Not often, at least. After the odd, early-60s trend of island themed music heard from the Hula Hawaiian Quartet, and a longer though ultimately time-sensitive foray into psychedelic rock, Switzerland's music scene took a hard turn toward punk and heavy-metal. Sure, it was the musical "look" of the time, but Switzerland is not where you'd expect to find it. Yet there it is, heard in the harsh and at-times grating and more often multi-lingual stylings of bands like LiLiPUT/Kleenex, Dieter Meier and The Young Gods.

More recently, artists like DJ Bobo and Baschi have more recently been keeping the traditional Euro beat with their dance floor-ready tracks and emerging artists like Sophie Hunger, Mama Rosin and Bonaparte are offering a diversity of sounds, all of which are included here, in this 26 track aural tour of Switzerland that gives wouldbe visitors a real taste of what this Swiss sound is all about.
