It would have been hard to match the artistic success of their debut EP on a full-length recording, but Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth did just that on Mecca and the Soul Brother, and they did so in the most unlikely way of all after the succinctness of All Souled Out -- by coming up with a sprawling, nearly 80-minute-long album on which not a single song or interlude is a throwaway or a superfluous piece. Granted, 80 minutes is a long stretch of time for sustained listening, but the music is completely worthy of that time, allowing the duo to stretch out in ways that their EP rendered impossible. Again, the primary star is Pete Rock's production acumen, and he ups the ante of rock-solid drums, steady cymbal beats, smooth-rolling bass, and fatback organ, not to mention his signature horn loops. C.L. Smooth is the perfect vocal match for the music. He is maybe one of the few MCs capable of rapping a fairly credible love song, as he does on "Lots of Lovin'." "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," a tribute to friend and Heavy D. dancer Trouble T-Roy, who was accidentally killed, packs a poignant emotional weight, but it is Smooth's more direct and conscientious -- and frequently autobiographical -- side which ultimately carries the album lyrically. The songs are connected and the album is propelled forward by Rock's quick, soul-tight interludes; these are usually bits of old R&B and soul tunes but sometimes they're spoken pieces or spontaneous, freestyle sessions. These interludes provide a sort of dense spiritual tone and resonance in the album that is not religiously based at all, but fully hip-hop based, emerging from the urban altars that are the basements and rooftops of the city.

Gibt es ein Goldenes Zeitalter des Rap?

10 Songs, die den French Touch entstehen ließen

Vor rund 20 Jahren überschwemmte der French Touch die Clubs und Radiosender auf der ganzen Welt und verschaffte damit Frankreich einen guten Platz auf der elektromusikalischen Landkarte. Qobuz erzählt die Geschichte jener zehn Titel, die für das goldene Zeitalter der französischen Produzenten ausschlaggebend waren.

Wie der Reggae den amerikanischen Pop erobert hat

Seit Bob Marley hat der Reggae nie mehr so im Rampenlicht gestanden. Denn die Hits der amerikanischen Popstars haben in den letzten drei Jahren einen jamaikanischen Einschlag bekommen. Immer mehr Sänger – das geht von Beyoncé über Drake oder Justin Bieber bis hin zu Rihanna – bringen ihre Stimme auf einem Track mit Dancehall zu Gehör, der „Club“-Version des Reggae, die Mitte der achtziger Jahre vom legendären Produzenten King Jammy mit Sleng Teng, dem ersten elektronischen Reggae der Geschichte, populär gemacht wurde. Rückblick auf eine sanfte Infiltration.
