Sophie the UFO

SOPHIE is one of those artists who inspire fascination right away, as much thanks to the mystery of their personality as the ineffable quality of their sound. We first met her in 2006 on the London label PC Music, and Samuel Long (SOPHIE's real name) was already producing music that was stranger than the output of all the rest of that crew (which is saying something).

An escapee from the collective Bargou 08, Tunisian electro musician Sofyannn Ben Youssef took on the pseudonym Ammar 808 to release his hair-raising first album.

Buddy Guy is not an old fashioned bluesman !

Damn Right ! Who could disagree? Of course Buddy Guy has blues in the blood! The Chicago guitar legend is saying it loud on this album: The Blues Is Alive And Well! At 81 years old, he seems on better form than ever, and has a lot to teach the youth.

Fantastic Negrito, the third life...

iFi Audio xDSD: Qobuzism for this DAC whose sound performances seemed to us even better than those, already excellent, of its predecessors!

Latest of the nomadic DACs from the British manufacturer iFi Audio, the xDSD is quite different from its predecessors, and is indeed much more attractive to people who like flashy objects. But while the aspect of this new DAC has been updated, it kept the excellent musical genes from its elders and even seems to have improved on them, leading to it being awarded with a Qobuzism.
