Thanks to the hard work carried out in cooperation with recording studios as well as an increasing number of music labels (Plus Loin Music, Bee Jazz, Ambronay Editions, Zig Zag Territoires, ECM, Mirare, Aeolus, Ondine, Winter & Winter, Laborie, etc.), Qobuz now offers a rapidly-growing selection of new releases and back catalogue records in 24-bit HD quality.

Moving away from the MP3-focused approach that has evolved over recent years at the expense of sound quality, Qobuz provides the sound calibre expected by all music lovers, allowing them to enjoy both the convenience and quality of online music.

Opmerking 24-bit HD albums sold by Qobuz are created by our labels directly. They are not re-encoded using SACD and we guarantee their direct source. In order to continue on this path, we prohibit any tampering with the product.

What is my purpose? What will come of the legacy of those who have influenced me? And what will I leave behind? These are all the big questions that Jamila Woods asks herself going into her second album suitably named Legacy! Legacy!, a Qobuzissime album! Three years after the release of Heavn, the soul sister from Chicago brings together twelve songs all named after the artists that influenced them. Musicians, painters, writers, activists, poets, they’re all there! And the lucky few are: Betty Davis, Zora Neale Hurston, Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Frida Kahlo, Eartha Kitt, Miles Davis, Muddy Waters, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Sun Ra, Octavia Butler and James Baldwin. There is nothing obvious or didactic here as the young African-American who is ever-so attached to her native Chicago never does out-and-out covers but less subtle “in the style ofs” all while retaining her own distinct style. A poet one day (she acts as artistic director for YCA, a center dedicated to young poets) and a musician the other, she is even a teacher on bank holidays! As the worthy heir of Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, all her words are wrapped around ultra-slick grooves with a modernized nu-soul twist. When it comes to features, Jamila Woods helps her local economy by inviting along friends that, for the most part, come from the underground scene of the Windy City: the trumpetist Nico Segal, MC Saba, Nitty Scott, theMIND, Jasminfire. Chance the Rapper’s protégé has mixed intelligence and class, commitment, enjoyment and groove into 49 minutes. Perfect. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

This is history in the making. Queen B surprised us with the release of a live album taken from her two dazzling concerts at Coachella in 2018, chronicled by a Netflix documentary. B performs a retrospective, revisiting 40 tracks from her 22-year career. There are no new songs here, but there is a studio cover with Tay Keith of Before I Let Go, the Frankie Beverly and Maze 1981 soul track. Other Destiny’s Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland make bonus appearances on Lose My Breath, Say My Name and Soldier, husband Jay-Z on Déjà Vu, sister Solange on Get Me Bodied, and her daughter sings Afro-American anthem Sing and Lift Every Voice. This performance effectively explains why it was nicknamed ‘Beychella’, as this makes its mark on the festival’s history. And that was the goal, with 200 people on stage, colossal high-budget visual spectacle in this immense two-hour performance highlighting afro-feminist empowerment; Beyoncé has earnt her throne. “When I decided to do Coachella, instead of me pulling out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought our culture to Coachella.” To the sound of the second lines of a New Orleans brass band, a revamped drumline, Malcolm X on Don’t Hurt Yourself and amidst multiple references to African-American history, the queen of pop inhabiting the Queen Nefertiti reminds us of the importance of her discography in the 3rd millennium. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

What is she doing when she gets home? Is she eating potato chips? Is she taking a bath? Is she paying her bills? Solange never answers any of these questions. The home of “When I Get Home” is much more her native Texas than her beloved New Orleans apartment. When I Get Home is a love letter to Houston. As with each of her previous records, Beyoncé’s sister takes on a mellow tone, melancholic even, which draws more comparisons to Erykah Badu (Texas native as well) than with her older sister. The album features some of the most promising young rappers of the state; Scarface, Devin the Dude, as well as a five guest artists including Pharrell Williams (on Almeda and Sound Of Rain), Raphael Saadiq, Earl Sweatshirt, Panda Bear, Tyler the Creator, Dev Hynes alias Blood Orange, Sampha, Metro Boomin, Playboi Carti, Cassie, Steve Lacy from The Internet and even French piano player Christophe Chassol. The guest artists’ appearances are discrete, and Solange always remains the central force in her songs. The tracks are almost ethereal, she hides her 1970’s funk/jazz sounds under a light electro veil Way To The Show and masters a slow-motion rapped R&B My Skin My Lego with Gucci Mane). Solange Knowles provides a sketch, an avant-garde draft more than an accomplished work of art, a unique 39-minute-long composition that is best to be listen to in one go. The album is a powerful and sensual trip that could very likely end up as one of R&B’s top albums of 2019. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Thanks to Ego Death, their third album from 2015, The Internet has reached a wider audience… And yet, Purple Naked Ladies released in 2011 and Feel Good, released two years later, had already highlighted the soulful voice of their female singer Syd Tha Kyd and the rather sophisticated and mostly minimalist sounds from Matt Martians, both members of the Odd Future collective. The Internet was tackling different sections of the soul music, with a preference for 90s nu soul, sometimes veering toward R&B or even hip-hop. Three years later, the orgy of sensual beats that are most of all as languorous as ever is still on the menu of their fourth opus, Hive Mind. In its DNA, The Internet is viscerally chill and this chill & laid back philosophy even becomes here an ever more mastered trademark. A sound and an attitude that mean that none of the thirteen songs from the album will be obvious to your ears on the first listen. With its dreamy melodies, Hive Mind, like all the deep works, is only understood with time. It’s a luxury in 2018 to take your time… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Funk, soul en r&b zijn de muzikale hoofdingrediënten op het album A Seat At The Table (2016) van de Amerikaanse zangeres Solange. Het derde album van de singer-songwriter bevat echter niet de luchtige pop van haar eerdere platen. Het feit dat het huis van haar grootouders met een molotov-cocktail werd bekogeld inspireerde Solange tot een maatschappijkritiisch album, met songs over onder de meer de positie van Afro-Amerikanen in de Verenigde Staten. © TiVo

blackSUMMERS'night uit 2016 is de langverwachte opvolger van het Grammy-winnende album BLACKsummers'night (2009) van de Amerikaanse zanger en muzikant Maxwell. De zanger heeft ruim de tijd genomen voor dit album. Maar daar staat tegenover dat de songs vrijwel allemaal van zeer hoge kwaliteit zijn en voorzien in een organisch klinkende crossover van r&b, soul en funk. © TiVo
