A new sensation in English techno, propelled to centre stage by unanimous critical acclaim for his first album, Drone Logic, in 2013, Daniel Avery has since become a touchstone of the European dance music circuit, regularly featuring in the lineups of the continent's best clubs and festivals, and in particular the infamous London club Fabric, of which he has become one of the pillars. After four years spent enjoying his popularity on tour after tour, the Englishman has finally decided to sit still long enough to record another LP, in a studio on the Thames. And this one is the flip side to the first. Drone Logic changed my life. I started touring, everywhere, all the time. It's great because I love mixing, but it's become harder to find the time for production."



A long way from the targeted dancefloor productions of his first outing, Song for Alpha, mixed by his mentor Erol Alkan, boss of the Phantasy label, whom he met at the famous Trash nights, starts out against an ambient backdrop, First Light, before embarking on a hypnotic, dreamlike trip on Stereo L. The kicks on Projection and Sensation take us back to a Detroit club in the 1990s, but just as quickly we are plunged back into the waters with a Brian Eno-inspired delirium on Citizen//NowhereDays from NowEmbers, and Quick Eternity, which closes this voyage with a virtuoso demonstration that resembles a film soundtrack. It hints at an ambition: Song for Alpha looks like a perfect visiting card for use in case of a meeting with a filmmaker. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

DJ-Kicks: the history of the compilation that redefined electronic music

“DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series of all time,” wrote Mixmag, the leading magazine for electronic music in England. It’s hard to fault them: since 1995, the German label !K7 hasn’t made the slightest mistake on more than 60 volumes by entrusting their mixes to incomparable artists. A pioneer of the genre at a time when the format wasn’t commonplace, the label managed to release club mixes by making electronic music accessible to the mainstream audience.

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.
