The wait is finally over: Travis Scott released his third studio album on August 3rd. Some of the top hip-hop and R'n'B artists are represented on “ASTROWORLD” - including names like Drake and The Weeknd. And yesss, the disc is really good and, above all, varied.

"This beat is so hard, I had to hit myself in the face", fans rave on Twitter about the latest album by American rapper Travis Scott, which is widely regarded as one of the most important releases in hip-hop.

Travis' style is characterized by punchy drums and extraordinary vocal performances. In the 17 tracks on “ASTROWORLD” we often hear the 26-year-old singing and experimenting with his voice. An example of this is the intro "STARGAZING". This track comes to a climax when Travis in head voice "I was always high up on that lean, then this girl came here to save my life" sings. In these lines he refers to his relationship with girlfriend Kylie Jenner.

Many of the synths on “ASTROWORLD” have a very unusual sound, as if the Martians had sent him sample packs personally: Rushing clicks over melody samples give the project additional character. In addition, some of the songs consist of several parts - so it's a very varied album.

An international disc with Swiss participation

Switzerland not only has fine chocolate, but also artists who write and produce music that is successfully marketed around the world. Among them are producer OZ, Link opens in a new window and singer / songwriter MVRDO, Link opens in a new window, who have also contributed to Travis Scott's latest work:

The second of the three parts in "SICKO MODE" was from the multi-platinum producer OZ and the German duo Cubeatz. Pitched vocals and the Angelic vocals of Swae Lee (Rae Sremmurd) accompany Travis over the beat as he spends the time showing off his wealth: "Different colored chains, think my jeweler really selling fruits / She thought it was the ocean, it’s just the pool" are lines that describe his rapper lifestyle.

Is «ASTROWORLD» something for you?

Open the box Close the box

You have to hear this album if you ...

... want to hear one of the most important hip-hop releases of the year

... want to know what an interstellar journey should feel like

Definitely don't listen to this album if you ...

... are looking for politically in-depth texts

... feel a hatred for Auto-Tune

«R.I.P. SCREW » is a in memory of DJ Screw, a hip hop legend from Houston. Travis Scott is also originally from Houston.

For us, however, this song is special for a completely different reason: Before the beat even came close to Travis, it was in Swiss hands.

When MVRDO heard the beat in a studio session with his friend Blair Taylor, he wrote down some melodies and lyrics for it. “That same evening we met Swae Lee in the studio and recorded the whole thing,” the 19-year-old tells us in an interview. The song was eventually forwarded to Travis Scott. At first MVRDO didn't even know that his song was ending up on “ASTROWORLD”.

I wasn't informed until just before it was released that the song made it onto the album.

The same topics, but clever implementation

Travis Scott lives up to the rapper cliché. The lyrics on “ASTROWORLD” are mainly about drugs, money and sex. But he knows how to compensate for this with excellent melodies and vocals. He also has a talent for bringing artists to songs and highlighting their strengths
