Eight years after the release of his last solo album Confessions of a Belladonna Eater, Kid Loco is back. The master of French trip hop, integrated into the French Touch since his first long format release A Grand Love Story in 1997, has not changed much in the time elapsed: still a fan of beautiful melodies, string sections and Jamaican bass, Jean-Yves Prieur -- who also works on other projects Motorville and My Own Ghost -- has kept a chic flair to his production, with a real sense of refinement and elegance, all while borrowing from music which are less associated with these notions.

The bass is particularly smoking on The Boat Song, with a bluesy arrangement consolidated by vocals by Chris Anderson and Crayola Lectern, whereas Venus in Dub practically oozes opium from the sitar, not to mention the drowsy p-funk of Mother Spliff Connection. Also of note, the two very Bristolian performances by the Greek singer Olga Kouklaki on The Bond and Unfair Game as well as Tim Keegan doing his best Lou Reed on the aptly named Soft Landing on Grass. Off the wall is the name of the game with this album. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

DJ-Kicks: the Compilation that Redefined Electronic Music

"DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series ever." It was Mixmag, the English reference magazine for electronic music that wrote it. It's hard to deny it: since 1995, the German label !K7 has been making flawless albums with more than 60 volumes by entrusting its mixes to leading artists. Pioneer of the genre at a time when this art form was not widely known, the label succeeded in introducing the mix outside of the clubs while popularising electronic music with the general public.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.
